Ernährungsverhalten bei Belastungssituationen (Stress)

Stress (engl.: Druck, Anspannung; lat.: stringere: anspannen) bezeichnet zum einen durch spezifische äußere Reize (Stressoren) hervorgerufene psychische und physische Reaktionen bei Lebewesen, die zur Bewältigung besonderer Anforderungen befähigen, und zum anderen die dadurch entstehende körperliche und geistige Belastung. 1936 hatte Hans Selye den Begriff aus der Physik entlehnt, um die „unspezifische Reaktion des Körpers auf jegliche Anforderung zu benennen.

Es gibt positive Reize (Eustress) und negative (Distress).

Die primären Reize - (Informationen - Wahrnehmung von Informationen) werden in einer ersten Stufe bewertet (Bewertung von Informationen)
- unwichtig / wichtig  - postiv bzw. negativ (hohes Risiko, gefährlich)
nächste Stufe der Bewertung - verfügbare Resourcen (Reaktionsmöglichkeiten) - wenn geringe Möglichkeiten - wird diese als Stress bewertet
- Stressbewältigungsstrategien (Coping)
(Stressmodell von Lazarus)
(siehe auch Salutogenese)

Dis-Stress beeinflusst den Stoffwechsel, (über) fordert das Immunsystem; erhöht das  Risiko von Erkrankungen allgemien und psychische Erkrankungen besonders - "burn-out", Depression.
