Great post as always, Rheyanne! I would add that one of the simplest and most effective ways to short-circuit stress AND hunger is to always eat breakfast, and to make sure that breakfast has protein in it. When you skip breakfast, or your breakfast is just fruit and bread, for instance, your blood sugar bounces around all day, making you more stressed out and more hungry. Oatmeal with nuts or a banana with a hard boiled egg (eat the yolk if you don't need to be concerned about cholesterol in your diet) are quick, portable breakfasts. Oh, one other thing - don't eat sweets before lunch, that creates blood sugar havoc. The other thing that most women prefer not to hear about regarding stress - caffeine makes it worse! And, it is a double whammy on your blood sugar, too. If you cherish your coffee, just make sure you don't overdo it, and consider half-caf as a partial withdrawal step.
My website about PMS focuses on how to stabilize blood sugar and deal with stress, since both are big PMS factors (website url address should be in my profile or write me if you want to read more.) Hope this helps!
