It’s something we’ve known for years – being stressed makes the battle of the bulge that much more difficult. If you’re waging a war on unwanted pounds and excess fat despite diet and exercise, keep reading.
Even if you usually eat well and exercise, chronic high stress can prevent you from losing weight—or even add pounds. Your body responds to all stress in exactly the same way; every time you have a stressful day, your brain instructs your cells to release potent hormones.
You get a burst of adrenaline, which taps stored energy so you can fight or flee. At the same time, you get a surge of cortisol, which tells your body to replenish that energy even though you haven’t used very many calories. This can make you ravenously hungry. And, unfortunately, your body keeps on pumping out that cortisol as long as the stress continues.
Here at Aespala MedSpa & Plastic Surgery in Oak Brook, IL, we know that a variety of factors can influence “diet and exercise resistant fat” – those bumps and bulges that refuse to shrink, despite a healthy lifestyle. From stress to lack of sleep and changing hormones, slimming down and toning up sometimes isn’t as simple as what you eat and working out.
