EP. #81: How Stress Affects Your Weight

How Stress Affects Your Weight | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Do you feel stressed out often?

Although we hear a lot about stress in the media, many people overlook the effect that it has, not only on their overall health, but on their weight, too.  

Stress management is as important a part of becoming healthy and dropping those extra pounds as changing your eating habits is.

Maybe you’re thinking, whaaaat? How does sitting around meditating and not burning calories help me lose weight?  

Different stressful life experiences have different effects on us. Sometimes, stress can cause people to lose their appetite. Other times, it can trigger the urge to eat to soothe yourself and avoid those uncomfortable emotions.

Listen to learn why stress makes it easier to gain weight and harder to lose it, and what you can do to reduce the effects of stress in your life. And grab a copy of the Stress Reduction Resources Think Sheet, too!
