Stress-Busters That Help You Lose Weight
When we're out of bandwidth, most of us go for the starchy, the sweet, the really-wrong-for-us. But eating the right foods can help you calm down and (hooray!) slim down too.
Bran Cereal and Low-Fat Milk

What's more, the extra fiber will carry you until your next meal, making it a great afternoon snack.
