New research is showing that there is a link between anxiety and eating.
The study included 5,580 middle-aged women. Researchers used a scale that measured anxiety and depression to determine levels of anxiety. They also measured participants’ height and weight. The results showed that 55% of women with the smallest waistline had anxiety, 59.7% in the middle range had anxiety, and 68.4% of women in the largest waistline group had anxiety.
This indicates that those who are heavier are also more likely to struggle with anxiety.
