Stress and weight gain.
Have you ever eaten well, exercised consistently, and consumed plenty of water only to see no changes in your body?
Perhaps you have wondered why, despite your best efforts, you find your pants getting tighter.
Look back on those times. Maybe you’re experiencing it now.
Likewise, what has been your stress level in those times?
You see, your body knows prolonged stress as your ancestors used to experience it. It meant prolonged periods without food.
Your body is programed to see long-term stress as a threat to your survival, so it tells your body to do 2 things: store energy and increase hunger.
This is why we gain weight in stressful times, even despite solid food and exercise efforts.
So, what can we do about it?
As a result, here are a few options you could look into to manage your stress:
• Breath work or yoga
• Having a coach (like us) or counselor
• Exercise more
Managing stress is very challenging in the world today, but it is essential for our long-term health and loving the body you have now.
Research shows stress as the underlying cause of many diseases, so getting your stress in check simply isn’t an option.
Therefore, we want to help you combat stress!
