Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is commenting on a study done by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health that shows compulsive overeating is becoming a significant problem in the workplace.
The study was led by Nina Nevanpera and conducted at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. For the study, Nevanpera and her associates examined 230 employed women between the ages of 30 and 55. Of the 230 individuals, 22 percent reported feeling either exhausted by, cynical of and/or a sense of meaninglessness in relation to their work, and these feelings resulted in work burnout.
The women, who reported work burnout, were much more likely to seek solace in food and they had higher scores on measures of emotional eating and compulsive eating.
“Those experiencing burnout may be more vulnerable to emotional eating and uncontrolled eating and they have a hindered ability to make changes in their eating behavior,” says Nevanpera.
Expert in Pulmonary Medicine and Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione gave his opinion saying, “these results really are no big surprise. Work burnout often results in continuous high levels of stress, and stress has long been associated with overeating.”
According to The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness, approximately 1 percent to 4 percent of the total population struggles with compulsive eating.
