As a college student, we are all stressed. According to the Cleveland Clinic, when someone is stressed their bodies sends out Cortisol, which makes you crave sugar, fat, and salt. This causes your brain to fuel up to fight what your body thinks is causing the stress. Many people over eat when they are stressed because this mind and body function. This leads to many busy or stressed people grabbing salty or fatty foods to suppress their hungry or stress causing them to overeat and not make healthy choices. I thought this was so interesting because we often see that obesity is a big issue in America and this can be linked to stress and fast paced careers or life in general.
