Stress Can Make You Fat

Stress Slows Down Metabolism

obese cat from Stress ExpressA new study from Biological Psychiatry shows that women burn fewer calories under stress and are more likely to reach for the wrong food when they are upset.  For many people, that means indulging in sugary carbs, which elevates blood sugar, contributes to diabetes and makes you put on belly fat.

This gets further complicated by lack of sleep.  If you get less than 7 hours of sleep a night, you are more likely to carry an extra  20 pounds of weight.

The solution: eat breakfast early, much on several small healthy meals throughout the day (think nuts, salads, veggies) and go to bed early.  Your overall health will definitely improve.
