Hungry? Don't grab a Snickers.

We are all guilty of it when we are feeling stressed, or anxious. Instead of reaching for healthy food - fruits, vegetables, protein - we instead reach for things that will give us a quick fix. A few sweets, a glass of wine, chips.

Though these things might make us feel better in the moment, after a long day at the office, or after crunching numbers after your bills arrive, these treats can be detrimental to our health. These comfort foods aren’t so comforting after all.

Why? These high-fat foods make us less capable of dealing with stress. They contribute to our blood pressure reaching new highs while also raising our cholesterol levels - two things already affected by stress alone. Add unhealthy food into the mix, and you have a perfect storm for serious health complications.
