What is stress eating, how to deal with it and remedies

In our fast-paced world, stress has become an ever-present companion for many, often leading to stress eating—a response to emotional distress involving excessive consumption of high-sugar and high-fat foods. Scientifically linked to the brain’s reward system and hormonal responses, stress eating can be triggered by various factors such as work pressure, relationship problems, financial stress, and health concerns.

Amidst the myriad of diets, only the ProGen Method employs Ketosis to facilitate rapid weight loss exclusively at the expense of fat tissue. This unique program is managed by an expert panel of dietitians and is grounded in a Very Low-Calorie Ketogenic Diet. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, particularly emphasizing the Ketosis method, ProGen ensures not only effective weight loss but also long-term results.

Executed by our in-house team—comprising Physicians, Dietitians, Mitochondrial Activation Trainers, and Coaches—the ProGen Method unfolds in two distinct stages:

  • The Fast Weight Loss Stage:
    • This initial phase revolves around a Very Low-Calorie Keto Diet plan. Participants combine ProGen products, rich in high biological value proteins, with a carefully selected list of vegetables. The goal is to achieve target weight through controlled ketosis, primarily targeting stored fat while preserving muscle mass.
    • Simultaneously, Mitochondrial Activation Training Sessions (MAT) are incorporated. These sessions, comprising specific exercises, functionally activate existing mitochondria and stimulate the generation of new mitochondrial cells—the powerhouses of our cells.


Now, let’s explore how the ProGen Method uniquely addresses stress eating:

  • Mindful Eating Techniques: ProGen incorporates mindful eating practices, disrupting the automatic cycle of stress eating. By encouraging participants to pay full attention to their meals, the program prompts thoughtful consideration of food choices, reducing impulsive overeating during moments of stress.

Practical Remedies and Support System:

To complement the ProGen Method, practical remedies for stress eating can be seamlessly integrated:

  • Opting for healthy alternatives to replace comfort foods.
  • Staying hydrated to reduce unnecessary snacking.
  • Keeping a food journal to track emotional eating patterns.
  • Creating a support system with friends or family members who provide emotional encouragement.

In conclusion, stress eating is a complex issue deeply rooted in our biology and psychology. The ProGen Method, with its scientific and multidisciplinary approach, offers not only a path to effective weight loss but also a holistic solution to address stress eating. By understanding the underlying mechanisms, recognizing triggers, and implementing practical strategies, individuals can regain control over their eating habits and lead healthier, more balanced lives with the ProGen Method.
