How eating lowers the risk of stress 2/2

Unfortunately, all too many people suffer from stress and this condition may lead to discomfort and even serious health problems. When dealing with stressful situations, people often resort to so-called Comfort Foods that provide instant energy as well as a feeling of wellbeing and satisfaction; yet, these foods do nothing to resolve the imbalance in your body and mind.

Healthy Food

On the other hand, there are foods that improve your ability to tackle stress and rebalance the changes that stress produces in your body. These  are foods  rich in antioxidants, minerals, nutrients and vitamins, which should always appear  on your grocery list.

Jeni Pearce–internationally recognised as a leading expert among dietitians and nutritionists and President of the Nutrition Foundation (New Zealand) explains:« Many people say they don’t have enough time to eat well. I think we are too busy not to eat well».

The dietary advice of dietitians and nutritionists

While we cannot always manage the sources of our stress, we can increase our ability to tackle and overcome it, with sport activities, using the proper ingredients and developing good eating habits:

#eat slowly

#eat regular meals- at least three meals a day - to meet your energy requirements and stabilize blood glucose

#prepare snacks and meals in advance if you have a busy day and little time to cook

#avoid high glycemic foods and carbohydrates, as well as fats and refined sugars, which provide instant energy but raise glucose levels and make you irritable

#introduce some anti-stress foods in your daily diet, foods that are rich in fibre, minerals, omega 3, protein and vitamins
