Let’s face it, stress is part of our lives. Unfortunately, it can also contribute to poor eating and other habits that keep us from feeling our best. “Even if you usually eat well and exercise, chronic high stress can prevent you from losing weight—or even add pounds,” explains Dr. Pamela Peeke, author of Body for Life for Women.

Lose WeightAs it turns out, our bodies respond to all types of stress in exactly the same way.  Every time we have a stressful day, our brain instructs our cells to release potent hormones. We then get a burst of adrenaline, which taps stored energy so we can fight or flee. At the same time, we get a surge of cortisol, which tells our body to replenish that energy even though we haven’t burned many calories.  This makes us hungry, and we eat.  Typical stress-eating choices such as sweet, salty and high-fat foods stimulate our brains, which releases pleasure chemicals and reduces our tension. We continue to repeat this cycle over time, increasing the production of cortisol. This interferes with our muscle building hormones, and we burn even fewer calories. It doesn’t take long for our bodies to start storing fat. Even worse, it loves to store visceral fat. (You do NOT want visceral fat. Yuck!)
