Did you know that stress can be doing more than making you feel worn out and anxious? It can also be one of the main reasons you’re holding onto some of those excess pounds.

BW2W did some research and discovered that ~ “Levels of ‘the stress hormone, cortisol‘, rise during tension-filled times. This can turn your overeating into a habit. Because increased levels of the hormone also help cause higher insulin levels, your blood sugar drops and you crave sugary, fatty foods.”

You’re probably thinking to yourself ~ ‘that’s all I need! Now what do I do???’

Here are a few strategies that can help you break the cycle of stress and weight gain:

Make exercise a priority. …

Eat healthier comfort foods. …

Practice mindful eating. …

Keep a food journal. …

Drink more water. …

Incorporate stress-relief strategies into your
daily life.

Just remember there are all kinds of diet plans to choose from. We encourage you to remember the first real secret to losing weight:

Patience. You didn’t gain that extra 10, 20, 40, or more pounds in one week. And it won’t all come off in one week. But if you make healthy choices, cut the calories and add in some physical activity ~ it will come off.
