Stress Weight Gain – Is It Possible? {Episode 211}

Stress Weight Gain – Is It Possible? {Episode 211}

Is it true when you hear that stress can cause weight gain? You’ve been focusing on diet and lifestyle factors, but stress weight gain?! What?! In today’s episode, let’s chat about how stress can be keeping you from your goals! Cortisol, our stress hormone, plays a bigger role than we are led to believe / what no one talks about in the fitness world!

Cortisol does not only affect stress weight gain, but hormones, blood sugar, and much more! And if I’m being honest, this can be one of the toughest things to handle because stress isn’t always black and white. Our lives aren’t always easy going, but we can try our best to adapt to stress in the best way that we can. In a previous podcast episode, we talked about stress techniques that you could try!
