How does chronic stress prevent you from losing weight

Chronic stress is bad for your entire body. Not only does it wreak havoc on your immune system, it interferes with energy balance. Cortisol is a stress hormone meant to help you adapt to temporary stressors.

However, on going stress and a subsequent high cortisol level break down lean mass, causing your metabolism to slow down and increases fat storage, particularly in the abdominal area. High cortisol levels work against you when it comes to losing weight and make it challenging to slim down.

When you have trouble losing weight, sometimes it’s about more than dieting and exercise. For effective weight management, text 984-287-0606 or visit our webpage 2030durhamchapelhill.com or our FB page 2030 Fast Track Durham/Chapel Hill.  We can help you loss weight and keep it off
