Stressful jobs may result in unhealthy eating habits for women
Our jobs are a big part of our lives, and in the current economic climate, job security isn't what it used to be. As a result, many people are working longer hours, logging in more time on the weekends and generally worrying more about their jobs.
But, working too much can result in not getting enough sleep, unhealthy eating habits and anxiety and stress. In fact, according to a new Finnish study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and cited in Reuters, women who reported being burnt out at work were more likely to have emotional and uncontrolled eating habits.
"Those experiencing burnout may be more vulnerable to emotional eating and uncontrolled eating and have a hindered ability to make changes in their eating behavior," wrote the study's leading researcher, Nina Nevanpera, of the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health.
Emotional eating occurs when a person eats because they are feeling such emotions as stress, depression or anxiety, rather than eating because they are hungry. Uncontrolled eating is when people cannot stop eating, regardless of whether or not they are full.
Of the 230 women ages 30 to 55 that participated in the study, those who experienced work burnout also tended to score higher in terms of unhealthy eating habits.

The specific benefits of each product, service, equipment, assessment, and amenity that we offer may be found on the respective pages. FBE's holistic approach to health and fitness offers several key advantages over typical approaches:
At FBE, we offer
- Low-impact exercises vs.high-impact exercises
- Alternative and preventative ways of improving your health vs. drugs and medications
- Workouts that heighten your energy levels and awareness vs. workouts that exhaust you and dull your senses
- Opportunities to accomplish more in less time vs. the drudgery of spending endless hours in the gym
From the perspective of Eastern medicine, pain, stress, and disease are caused by the energy channels of your body and mind being blocked or inhibited. At Firm Body Evolution (FBE), we focus on moving your energy to open up and balance your energy channels allowing your body and mind to function optimally; and thus, transforming you. The transformation of your mind and body can have profound, positive implications in various areas of your life. The continuous process of a new you striving to be better is what we call “evolution.”
Too many times, however, our state of mind and body that we are trying to transform is precisely what is limiting us. If you feel depressed and lazy, you may be less inclined to eat well and exercise. Many main stream solutions to our ailments are either treating symptoms rather than causes; creating problems at the same time they are fixing others (side effects); or are requiring maximum use of the exact things they are trying to fix. And preventative measures, well they seem to receive the least attention of all.
Firm Body Evolution, maybe the name makes more sense to you now, is different. FBE offers noninvasive, low-impact, easy ways for people to reconnect holistically with their natural energy sources inspiring them to continue to evolve.
If you are willing to invest a minimum amount of time and energy to make progress toward a more relaxed, fit, and healthy self, we will amplify your investment. Call us now at 310.652.5522 to see how we can help.
