No, I've never had a weight problem. I don't gain weight. My brain may be atrophying though. When I imagine what a trader looks like, I don't imagine someone who has gained a lot of weight. Even though it's a sedentary type of work, I don't picture traders as being overweight. I picture traders as people who want something more out of life, and may want to take good care of themselves. I picture traders as people with higher standards somehow, and striving for something other than average.
So that image I have of the typical trader, and the effects of stress don't seem to be totally in sync. I guess that is part of what is interesting to me.

Hope that helps.
I did not know that. That's interesting. Very interesting. Thanks for that information. I also found this definition:

Eustress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yes,i'm joking about it ,some people said that if you gain weight can depends from the activity of brain IF .You are a trader so you live your state of being trader like you are.if you are a people that take cure about you,and love to see you ever in good mould ,you'll have a
kind of lifestyle,you make sport,don't eat fat foods and don't cooking with fat.Lovely your description,that you imagine traders people that want some more out of life.maybe you are so ,maybe you don't think like become many rich ,but maybe you are more interesting at the consequence ant the effect that trading can product.I like observe ad exemple in this time some effect that trading has on sex and on the pairs sex activity.I talk so because i can observe that in many period of year sex are less importance if you don't take in consideration like a good lifestyle.Trading some time can killed sex activity in the people.My personal opinion how i live so.

I think that being a successful trader, at least for a man, would make him have a better image of himself. A man's self worth can be tied to his ability to provide for a wife and family. And that ability to provide, can be tied to his self-worth, and the self-worth can be linked to interest in sex.

This is out of my "comfort zone", and I'm pushing my limits here. I think we are venturing from PG, to R rating now.

Wink Re: Stress Makes You Stupid

I think many are missing an important aspect of stress; particularly if one is under capitalized and trading. It is almost a self fullfilling prophecy that such a one is going to fail. Why? Because of increased stress, which makes one do stupid things while trading, and those stupid things one does while being stressed quickly deplete your trading account. How many accounts have you blown by being stupid because you were trading with too little capital? Obviously, I am not saying you are stupid; only that you or I do stupid things while being stressed. It is extemely difficult to not be stressed while in a trade if you have little money to trade with, and if stressed your chances of success fall exponentially. Sure it is easy to suggest, "Well, you shouldn't be trading in the first place." But, some are not as fortunate as others. I am sure there are many out there struggling to make it with too little going for them. To those I would suggest making sure you achieve discipline and patience and taking the time to work on those two aspects before trading with real money. Stress can kill you in more ways than I can count.

Re: Stress Makes You Stupid

Stress is certainly bad for perceiving ability. Food and lifestyle can effect levels of stress.

Drinking, junk food and porn all increase stress.

Learning new sports or arts, adventure sports, yoga, a vacation in peace & solitude can help reduce stress.
