Devouring sweets when you’re stressed goes beyond having a sweet tooth —a lot of it is in your head. How your frame of mind affects everything from the foods you crave to the way you digest them?

The ancient poet Rumi once said: “The satiated man and the hungry man do not see the same thing when they look upon a loaf of bread”. Although in today’s world that loaf of bread may be gluten-free or sprouted, the truth of that quote still rings true: our perception of food varies depending on our relationship with it, but science is now telling us that these relationships can even have an effect on how we’re able to metabolize our meals. You may never look at a loaf of bread the same way.

Women in particular can have an increased desire for food as well as a harder time ignoring their cravings than men, according to a recent study using PET scans to examine the brain activity of both men and women as they were exposed to the sight, smell, and taste of various foods.

Food for Thought

Consider this: A dinner plate with chicken, salad, and rice can be something completely different depending on the person it’s presented to. A dieter sees the meal’s total calorie content, where as an athlete sees fuel in the form of grams of protein.

A vegetarian sees the slaughter of a chicken. A scientist who is studying nutrient content in food sees a collection of chemicals and molecules. What is remarkable about that dinner plate is that each of those individual’s body’s will metabolize and react to that same meal in very different ways, based on how each of them relates to it. That is because one of the most essential components of metabolism isn’t a vitamin, a chemical, or a molecule; it is the psychological relationship with the food; meaning, how one thinks and feels about what they are about to eat impacts how the body digests it. But there’s more on that to come.
