People can gain weight from being sad! I have seen it happen in my personal injury practice. I have included it as a damage from a car crash. In fact, sometimes jurors see it with their eyes when they see before and after pictures of my client. Now, Psychological Science Journal has proven it through a study in sports.
“One day after a defeat, Americans eat 16 percent more saturated fat, and 10 percent more calories. But on the day after a victory of their favorite team, then it’s the opposite. They eat more healthily. They eat 9 percent less saturated fat, and 5 percent fewer calories. There was no effect in cities without a team or with a team that didn’t play.”
Have you ever heard, “I eat because I’m unhappy. I’m unhappy because I eat”. Then, add on the factor of not feeling well or not having mobility to exercise. Weight gain becomes a real damage of a car crash.
This is the first weekend of NFL football. According to the study, will Cowboy fans be hitting the Buffalo Wings all you can eat wings bar?
And in the world of food…DID YOU KNOW that the Incas measured time based on how long it took to cook a potato.
And for pic o’ day… another from my Mom! Have a great weekend.
