Biochemical – Don’t let stress pile on the pounds
Discover how stress increases your appetite for calorific foods and encourages belly fat. Learn how to support your body to lose your stress-related weight gain.
High levels of stress are often a feature of modern life. However, our stress response was not designed for modern times. The fight-or-flight response to stress may have saved our ancestors’ lives, but it can make us gain weight.
In this book you will discover:
- Why stress increases your appetite, particularly for calorific foods
- Why stress causes you to store fat around your belly
- How to support your body when life is stressful, so you are less likely to put on weight
- Ways of responding to your real need, rather than eating. If you find it difficult not to “comfort” eat when stressed, you will discover healthier options you can reach for in that moment, to reduce the impact on your weight
