6 signs that you eat to “hiding” what you really feel

Several countries in the world, faces a serious problem of overweight and obesity in its adult population. A situation that could be caused by a characteristic that differentiates humans from animals: feelings.

According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, the hormones in our stomach communicate directly with the brain, causing a pleasurable sensation. This explains why there are some people who feel the need to consume sweet or fatty foods when they experience sadness or anguish.

Does your heart dominate everything?
The relationship between the brain and stomach is so close that even when you experience love, the “butterflies” feel in the abdomen. However, not everything is good. There are times when you eat to hide feelings that are not pleasant causing, in the long term, a problem.

For this reason we present the following signals that can indicate you eat to hide your emotions.

 

1. Emotional hunger starts suddenly. Everything opposite to the physics that happens gradually.

 

2. When you are eating to mitigate a feeling it does not matter if your stomach is full or empty, you only need to eat. In this case, you tend to choose a specific food, since you do not like any food; a contrary situation happens when it is due to hunger.

 

3. It requires immediate satisfaction. In specific about an unhealthy food.

 

4. It does not matter if you are full. You feel the need to keep eating, regardless of whether this causes you discomfort (pain or inflammation).

 

5. New emotions arise. After the excess of food there is a feeling of guilt.

 

6. You experience a degree of control. With each bite you think the situation begins to calm down and you feel more confident about what is going to happen.

 

The American College of Cardiology, points out that an excellent tip to avoid eating for emotions is the following: stop and take deep breaths before you start eating your food.

 

A balanced diet not only takes care of your physical well-being, also emotionally.

Stevia: lies, scams and benefits of the fashionable sweetener

Today it takes a lot to consume products that overnight jump to the shelves of supermarkets. This is the case of stevia, the alternative to sweeten “healthier”. But is it really the best sweetener in the world? What is the difference between stevia and steviol?

Stevia is a plant of natural origin with a great sweetening power and, in addition, it is caloric. Its consumption is forbidden because of that in the supermarket we do not find the stevia leaves as such spread over the shelves. So what do we drink when we take stevia?

The Stevia Rebaudiana (plant) itself is natural. However, the food additive E-960, better known as steviol glucoside and whose consumption was approved in Europe in 2011 (Regulation 1131/2011), has little natural. The same happens with other sweeteners in the market.
It is not healthy sweetener everything that glitters
Before buying, you have to check all the labels of the products that are in the supermarket and sold as stevia. Most manufacturers add to the compound other substances that adulterate the final result. The consumer believes that he is buying stevia (the plant) because, often, he puts it with large letters on the label designed, in addition, in green to give an appearance of natural.

Although its leaves have a capacity to sweeten between 300 and 450 times higher than that of sugar, its consumption is not authorized since the plant contains some substances with pharmacological activity, in fact it is hypotensive, among other things.
To obtain the steviol glucoside (what is marketed as stevia), it is necessary to dry the plant. Then, many of its active principles are extracted, such as nanofiltered ones that are later crystallized by vacuum evaporators.

As you see, it has little natural. It is a manufacturing process involving chemical elements. And as a result you get a resulting product is between 200 and 300 times sweeter than sugar, stable to heat but not fermentable.

Also, to give you an idea, the consumption of stevia is limited to 4 mg / Kg of weight and day. While the consumption of aspartame, another of the sweeteners in focus, is at 40 mg / kg of weight and day. Therefore, the consumption of steviol is not as healthy as they make us believe.
What are the benefits of stevia?
It seems complicated that after all the above is left to list some benefits of stevia. As in all cases there are those who are in favor and those who are against. The supposed benefits of stevia (plant) have been tried to transfer as such to the consumption of the additive. Which is a mistake because the plant contains components with pharmacological activity, some with hypotensive activity, others capable of causing infertility. When using the plant we can not say which compounds we want to make the effect at each moment. This is why the commercial use of the plant for food purposes is not in Europe.

Amazing Diets that you should try in 2018

Getting in shape is a typical new year’s determination. Notwithstanding when spruced up as a promise to eat all the more steadily, it can be tinged with self-hatred. Those pigs in covers, mince pies and Baileys. Why, gracious why? Be that as it may, in any event any individual who needs to enhance their eating regimen has a fabulous asset to help them. With idealize timing, a US board of specialists in consume less calories, heftiness, diabetes, coronary illness and nourishment brain science has examined and positioned 40 abstains from food. Its postings, which are delivered yearly, indicate which eating regimens are best for short-and long haul weight reduction, which are least demanding to take after, which you are well on the way to stay with – and which are risky in light of the fact that they don’t supply enough supplements.

The Answer

In the classification of best eating regimens by and large, the Ketogenic eat less, which expands fat admission and lessens sugars and is allegedly trailed by Kim Kardashian and Mick Jagger, comes in second to base. Specialists were worried at the wellbeing dangers of such elevated amounts of fat, particularly for individuals with liver or kidney issues.

The triumphant space is shared between two downplayed eats less carbs – the DASH eat less carbs and the Mediterranean eating regimen. While you may be acquainted with the Mediterranean eating regimen, the previous is less notable however has been topping the specialists’ yearly best eating methodologies leaderboard for a long time. In any case, both – and also a portion of the other best 10-positioned diets – have confirm that backings their adequacy: individuals who tail them get thinner and lessen their danger of hypertension, diabetes and most likely different conditions, as well.

DASH was concocted by the US National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and elevates six to eight servings of grains, four to five of vegetables or natural products, six of lean meat (chicken or fish), nuts or seeds, and a few servings of fats. Each serving is little; for instance, 1oz (28gm) of meat or 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Sodium is topped at around a large portion of a teaspoon. Studies demonstrate that the eating regimen, especially when joined by work out, decreases weight and circulatory strain. The specialists say it is anything but difficult to take after and you will feel full on it.

The Mediterranean eating regimen, brimming with natural products, vegetables, entire grains, olive oil, angle, nuts, poultry, eggs, and cheddar and yogurt with some restraint, is like DASH, yet without the particular serving confinements. A few examinations demonstrate weight diminishment while others are obscure, however a Mediterranean eating regimen is likewise thought to secure against diabetes and coronary illness. It is likewise simple and even happy to take after. By and large, the best-positioned diets are not very prohibitive. So the Flexitarian eat less carbs – vegetarianism with the infrequent expansion of meat – scores more profoundly than a veggie lover slim down. The WHOLE30 eating regimen is positioned with the crude sustenance consume less calories as the slightest sound – both are excessively prohibitive, making it impossible to be the “best eating routine” for anybody.

I really recommend Mediterranean diet because eating primarily plant-based foods, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts is extremely healthy and Using herbs and spices instead of salt to flavor foods is an amazing way to improve the quality of the food that you eat.
