Why does stress make you fat?
Aside from alcohol and bad food, stress is one of the biggest causes of excess fat. If you are doing everything else correctly (avoiding sugar, eating, good fat etc), but you’re stressed, you will still have a fat little tummy and a thick waist!.
When you are stressed out your body releases adrenaline and cortisol and when you are in real danger i.e fight or flight mode they do not make you fat, but when you are not in real danger, you don’t use these fat storing hormones so they and all that sugar that is released into the bloodstream just floats around, eventually ending up as fat around you waist.
Next week I am going to let you know how YOU can fight against fat and win.
