Caregiver Weight Gain

Many women end up being the care giver role. The stress of can cause havoc on the health and weight of the care giver. Here are some quotes on the subject:

Weight gain can be a problem for caregivers. Some female caregivers are prone to weight gain. A major study finds that women who care for alzheimer patients tend to gain weight, but only if they are unable to control their anger. Women caregivers who find effective ways to control their anger do not gain weight.

Caregivers may find that they are gaining weight due to emotional overeating. Or, caregivers may not eat due to not enough time or no appetite.

TIP: Being healthy is very important. It will give you more energy during the day. If weight gain is a problem, consult your physician.

Therefore, I would like to remind everyone that you have to remember to take care of you if not you will not be strong enough to take care of others.
