Beat stress with your diet

We live in a fast-paced world and few of us are immune to the effects of stress. While some stress is good to help us achieve our goals, too much becomes detrimental to our health.

If stress is getting the better of you, have a look at your diet.

Stress makes us overeat and reach out for unhealthy comfort foods which sap our energy and make us feel only worse. Healthy food choices, however, are guaranteed to improve our health and mood, as well as our coping mechanisms.
