New DiSH Lab study published!

Have you ever wondered why people reach for high fat, sweet food when they’re stressed? It’s because it works! In a new study by the DiSH Lab and collaborators now covered in the press, we report findings that  very highly stressed women who have high abdominal fat actually have LOWER reactivity to stress, most likely due to comfort food eating. So don’t be so harsh on yourself when you reach for a donut on a bad day – it may be serving a real need and helping dampen your biological stress systems.
