How to Avoid Stress Eating While on Keto

How to Avoid Stress Eating While on Keto

At the current time, many people are worried about the current status of the world or wondering if their job will be safe due to the ongoing spread of COVID-19. While this may seem like enough reason to put your weight loss goals on hold, it shouldn’t have to be. Unfortunately, many people will stress eat or eat out of sheer boredom just because they are stuck at home. If you are struggling to maintain your Ketogenic diet goals because of stress eating, here are some steps you can take to influence your choices.

Make Healthier Foods a Priority

It can be easy to stress eat when you surround yourself with unhealthy food options that don’t fit with your required macros. Instead of stocking your pantry with carb-heavy snacks, consider instead filling your fridge with celery, salad or other low-calorie, low-carb food options that can be grabbed quickly as a snack. The main key to avoiding stress eating bad things is to ensure they simply aren’t available to you at the current time.

Manage Your Stress Effectively

Chronic stress has been shown to have a detrimental effect on eating habits and will often lead to choosing the wrong foods simply for the comfort that they provide. For most people, setting aside a portion of their day to destress in their chosen manner may be effective at reducing chronic stress that could result in eating. Some activities that may be considered include taking a walk, practicing your breathing, taking a bath or doing yoga.

Start an Exercise Program

Exercise is proven to be one of the most effective ways to mitigate stress and many professionals will encourage their patients or clients to seek out exercise to facilitate an endorphin rush. Many studies have shown that a boost in endorphins can help improve relaxation and help mitigate stress that an individual may be experiencing. Even if you are only doing light exercise, it should be enough to help and will continue to push your fat loss goals even further.
