Something tells me us gals stress-eat more than you fellas do. But if we get fat, we have something to blame it on!
Since stress-eating usually involves comfort foods like pizza, cheeseburgers, and chocolate cake, that packs on about a pound a month and eleven pounds per year those experts say.
I was a fat kid and part of my stress now involves worrying about being fat again, so this bit of news makes me feel like the problem is compounded. Stress makes me want to starve and eat at the same time!
It's not just the foods themselves that cause the weight gain. There could be something else going on with stress that makes us add the LB's.
