Decrease Stress to Stay Slim

Chronic stress can have both negative physical and negative mental effects. A new study published in Psychoneuroendocrinology showed a direct link between chronic stress and the body’s metabolic response. The study showed that women who ate the same high fat and sugary foods had more weight gain, fat deposit, and insulin resistance when their chronic stress was elevated. Therefore, these women were more prone to health risks than low-stress women who ate the same food. There is no magic pill to decrease stress levels, but exercise, meditation, yoga and deep breathing techniques can help. Get adequate sleep and eat a diet filled with nutrients to help combat disease.
