Find a Balanced Way to Comfort

Posted on February 2, 2017 by Deb Hart

There are physical components to the comforting effect of foods as well. Science has found that different types of food can impact our mood by affecting our brain chemistry. Serotonin and other like neurotransmitters have a calming influence on our mood. If we’re feeling stressed, sad, angry or overwhelmed, we may begin to crave those foods that in the past have helped to make us feel better, looking for a little boost in our serotonin.

Finding healthy, balanced ways to comfort ourselves is an important tool to have in our toolbox of post-bariatric surgery strategies. Using this tool when we have smaller needs for comfort will help us prepare for those times when life becomes overwhelming.
