Women who are tired with their profession might be more possible to get attracted to food for comfort during depression, a recent study recommended. The research which followed about 230 Finnish women discovered that those who have submitted work burnout were even more possible to have a habit of eating emotionally and this is eating when depressed, down or anxious, rather than just being hungry. What is more, they are more prone to unregulated eating which means to feel they are every time hungry and they can’t stop themselves from eating until the entire food has gone. The conclusions reported in an American periodical are not astonishing, says Dr. Sherry Pagoto.

The conclusion is based on 230 women who fell in the age bracket of 30-55 and who were a part of a clinical experiment looking at healthy lifestyle modifications. All were in certain profession and at the start of experiment; they finished survey on profession burn out and their eating habits. Around 22% of these women had certain degree of job burnout as per the research team. As a group, they scored elevated on the calculations of uncontrolled eating and emotional eating. The women who did not have any professional burnout at the research started to reduce the uncontrolled eating for 1 year.

However on average, the burnout team failed to make any transformation. There was no understandable influence of burnout on the weight of the women. At the start, about half of the women said that the work burnout were general weight – when compared with a 3rd of the women who reported no burnout.  If you seem to eat so that you can deal with stress, Dr. Pagoto recommends keeping your working table clear from the snacks or you can stock up with healthy ones and prevent any workplace vending machines.
