Eating unhealthy food continuously is going to put our body in trouble because eating more sugar or calorie-dense food will lead to a lot of complications in later days such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, PCOD and thyroid problems. since workout has become one of the challenging tasks due to time constraints.

Cortisol is a stress hormone. The level of this hormone increases when you are stressed and crave comfort foods. The secretion of the stress hormone also causes higher insulin levels that make you crave food loaded with sugar and fat. The higher the secretion of the cortisol hormone the higher the urge to eat or snack on high-calorie foods will be.

So what are the things which can be done to overcome this problem?

Healthy eating habits: Try to avoid unwanted calorie foods (simple sugars - like sweets, fried snacks, alcohol etc), which will add extra calories to the body. which in turn if not burnt will get converted to fats and start storing in the body leading to fatty liver, obesity, increased triglyceride, finally when the body starts storing extra calories the insulin requirement increases and leading to diabetes. 

  • Incorporate high fibre food, follow small and frequent meal patterns, and try avoiding snacking on junk foods. 
  • Exercise or physical activity or yoga or meditation: Some form of physical activity must be done to burn the calorie consumed. Because fat started burning after 40 min of physical activity. If not fat at least try to burn the daily calorie consumed.
  • Don't sit for long try to take gaps in between your work. Take stairs, do some household activities, gardening to burn some calories. 
  • Adequate sleep: A good sleep of 6 to 8 hours is important during this time to be stress-free.
  • Hydration: Water is vital for our health. Excess sugar causes the accumulation of toxic molecules called uric acid which is the breakdown of component purine. Excess purine breakdown in the blood is a sign of health problems.
  • Uric acid is hard on kidneys where it crystallises and causes kidney stones. So consuming excess sugar is bad and should be avoided. Drinking water is necessary to safeguard the kidney. Water keeps you hydrated and your brain works well if enough is consumed.
