Its commonly known that stress can significantly impact your ability to lose weight and keep it off.
When you're stressed your body releases a hormone called Cortisol. In reality, this hormone is protecting your body.
After high levels of stress, the job of cortisol is your body trying to replenish your energy levels.
This is why when you’re stressed you crave sugar and all the foods that quickly shoot up your energy levels. It's important rather than beating yourself down for giving into your cravings, but to build yourself up by addressing the cause of this craving.
Even if you're someone who has relatively healthy diet, but has a lot of stress in life, the high levels of cortisol could be detrimental to your metabolism, and how much weight you can lose.
