Mechanicsville Virginia Chiropractor – Nearly half of Americans believe their stress has increased over the past five 20130311-200124.jpgyears, and 33% say they are living with extreme stress. People who overindulge and those who shun food in times of stress compensate for their behavior when positive events occur. Stress eaters eat less following a positive experience, while stress shunners eat more. Overeating or eating unhealthy food when faced with stress is something 43% of Americans admit to doing, while 36% confess to skipping at least one meal in the last month due to stress.
