Stress and Fat loss

Dieting Psychology
Stress and fat loss

Working in this fitness field for quiet a some time now, I have come across many people you are over stressed because they are obese. Being a Yoga instructor they always confront me saying” I am over stressed because I am fat or over weight” or “ I have tried everything but there is no result so I am really stressed about my weight”. Do we really know what disaster we are doing to our self by taking these weight related stress. Research proves that most of lifestyle related diseases are caused by two things first weight and second stress. In some cases, stress may lead to missed meals and poor food choices. For others, stress may cause them to completely lose the desire to eat and this is doing no good to you. By missing your meals or not eating at all you are just opening the doors to other hundreds of problems just to name few mood swings, headaches, indigestion, fatigue and many more. Most importantly when you are stressed your body processes food differently. Stress affects your vagus nerve, which affects how your body digests, absorbs, and metabolizes food. So while we cannot control the external factors which give us stress, we can definitely control some of the internal factors to avoid these stress. So if you are over weight or obese first thing stop being stressed and start doing something about it as stress will not do any good to you. Trust me even a small efforts like going for a walk or eating a healthy meal, taking those extra steps will give you lot of happiness and will immediately help to relieve some part of your weight related stress.
