Do it wrong, however, and you’ll be a nutritionally compromised zombie – sleepy, hungry, moody and ill-equipped to tackle the day.
Stress. We’ve all got it, and most of us would love to have a lot less of it. While there are many healthy ways to combat it—starting with meditation and regular exercise—how you eat plays a big role in how well you manage stress.
