Worries lead to extra pounds and tip the scales toward more health risks, researcher says

FRIDAY, July 10 (HealthDay News) -- Stress can keep you up at night, make you snap at your spouse and children, and make your job seem overwhelming.

If that's not bad enough, stress can also make you gain weight -- especially if you're overweight to begin with, new research shows.

For men, strained relationships or feeling constrained by life's circumstances wasn't associated with weight gain. But job issues, such as lack of authority or little opportunity to learn new skills or do interesting work, was associated with weight gain.

And those who were already overweight had a tendency to gain even more. People who started off with a higher body-mass index (BMI) tended to pack on the pounds, while those who started out with lower BMIs and were dealing with stress didn't, according to the study published in the July 15 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology.
