You may not realize it -- but if you don’t get the tasty carbs your brain is craving when you’re stressed, you may actually make yourself more anxious. Carbs are what connect our stress and our emotions! In fact, eating sugar actually quiets down your brain’s emotion circuits.
In this revealing video, NeuroTrition’s Dr. Matthew Hill helps you understand why we should be less focused on the impossible goal of avoiding all stress and more on learning how to use food and lifestyle choices to manage our emotions and fight back against stress’ damaging effects. You’ll also learn why you feel worse when you diet and why deprivation just doesn’t work.
