Stress can damage the diet. Always in a “high tension” can make a messy diet. No wonder if this then culminate in the increasing size of waist circumference.
A new study from Michigan State University fortunately found an easy way to stop this. In order for stress does not make the belly bulge, just one way: enough sleep.
In their first experiment, the researchers surveyed 125 people with information technology employees whose workload was so great that they felt that they were always short of time. In the second experiment, they analyzed 110 data center analysts who reported often feel stressed out by rough consumers.
Their findings show, the more these employees feel stressed, the more unhealthy their food choices are.
However, when these employees get enough sleep at night, the daily stress they get at work no longer affects their food choices. When enough rest, they will choose a healthier diet.
Researchers believe that adequate sleep protects the body from the negative effects of stress. This is because, quality sleep will make the body feel fitter and refreshed.
Adequate sleep also makes the employees more prepared for the busy day and finish the work load. Citing Men’s Health, Wednesday 2017.
