Why do we eat so much when we’re stressed?
Because we can’t taste things as well! Now, 90% of us admit to stress eating – but stress suppresses our ability to taste. So we eat more – trying to taste our food! So when you’re stressed, reach for something spicy or strong tasting, like a pickle. Or, relax first without food. Take a walk, calm down, and when you eat, your taste buds will be functioning more normally and you’ll eat less.
