Dr Oz did a segment on Stress Eating and Emotional Eating to try and help a wonderful lady named Tamika. Do you ever feel like stress is eating at you? Doctor Oz’s guest gained 40 pounds in just a year and has been overeating to compensate for stress.
Dr Oz: Stress Eating
Tamika said that she does not like she sees when she looks in the mirror – it is not her, it is someone else. She gained 100 pounds when she was pregnant with her daughter 16 years ago, and now she commonly puts on 10-15 pounds a year. When she is happy – she eats. When she is sad – she eats. She said that she feels herself getting more and more unhealthy and her knees even hurt when she walks from all of the weight. At Tamika’s last doctors appointment, she was told that she must lose weight or she will be at high risk for having high blood pressure, cholesterol, a bad heart and arthritis. Tamika said that the worst part is that her daughter imitates her and she does not want her to be overweight and unhealthy at 16 years old. She said she was scared to find out her numbers because she is worries it might be something bad that she really would not want to hear.
