Snooping can add on pounds. It's stressful worrying about being caught mid-snoop, and constantly covering your tracks when you poke around in other people's beeswax can spiral into emotional overeating. Worse, stress triggers production of cortisol, a hormone that, when present in increased amounts, interferes with the action of the appetite-regulating hormone leptin, and can lead to an increase in appetite.

Excess adrenaline and cortisol, what's known as the fight-or-flight response, is brought on by snooping and sends blood rushing to the major organs and extremities, leaving less for the frontal lobe, the part of the brain responsible for problem solving and other high-level cognitive function.

Look honestly at your responses and see if talking this out with the person you are snooping on will help, or if you need something more intensive such as therapy to address those underlying issues. Sometimes snooping is a symptom of a problem in a relationship; <span style='font-size: 20pt'>other times itís related to self esteem, anger, fear or jealousy.</span></div></div>
