Do you find yourself reaching for a bag of chips or binge-eating chocolate chip cookies when you're feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted?
Do you drink endless amounts of coffee filled with sugar to get you through the day?
Do you start to crave junk food around 3 p.m. like clockwork every single day?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then you are in the right place. Trust me when I say I've been there and struggled with all of the above.
Stress and exhaustion are two of the most common reasons people reach for sugar, carbs (the bad ones), and lots of caffeine.
We crave the comfort and that feel-good feeling that comes from consuming these unhealthy foods. We often forget about that dreaded crash that comes shortly after.
When we're stressed and exhausted, we're not always in the best mindset to make the healthiest choices for our bodies.
So I'm not going to tell you how to stress less or sleep more, but I'm here to give you simple strategies for eating healthy even when you're stressed to the max, running on little to no sleep, and just really want to eat that cupcake.
