So why does stress make us put on weight? Stress eating, a common but little understood problem, is the culprit, causing us to overindulge in candy, cookies, sugar, and refined carbohydrates. Not only are these foods often high in calories, but they also can make our blood sugar dip so low we want to eat even more. And women are especially at risk: 82% of them overeat versus 71% of men.
A new book, The Stress Eater Diet, aims to stop this harmful cycle. This unique program—created by Robert B. Posner, M.D. and top nutritionist Linda Hlivka explains the dangers of stress eating and provides a solution to reduce and eliminate it. It also consists of sound nutritional advice and plans, exercise suggestions, and expert calming techniques to reduce stress and increase metabolism. Together, Posner and Hlivka have helped thousands lose weight, reduce stress, and lead happier, healthier lives.
The Stress Eater Diet will be published January 16 and buzz is already building—the book has recently been featured in Woman’s World magazine. Now is the perfect time for your readers to learn about it too, since many have made resolutions to lose weight in 2009.
