How stress makes you fat!

Take a lunch break

When feeling stressed the adrenal glands release the hormone cortisol into the blood supply to prepare the body for flight or fight. Cortisol increases blood sugar levels so your brain, muscles and organs have enough fuel to get you through that stressful situation – either running away (flight) or pushing on through even though you are tired and anxious (fight), this put very simply, promots our body to store fat.

 

So how would you describe your current stress levels?

A little bit of stress is not a bad thing. The problem occurs when you are constantly in that stressful state and not allowing yourself to come down from it, relax and take time out. Chronically elevated cortisol increases blood sugar levels, which then elevate insulin levels preparing the body for fight or flight…this, among other things, will stop you from burning fat no matter what exercise or diet program you follow.
