Today I discuss why eating in a stressed state causes weight gain, and provide a simple trick to turn on your digestive system, even when you are feeling stressed out. I also explain how high cortisol levels are negatively impacting our sleep and then when we don’t sleep well, we are less stress-resilient and again have high cortisol levels, as well as when we don’t sleep well, our brain looks for energy and so we reach for food, which further adds to the weight gain. This is a very common scenario that I see in my clients all the time and it shows up on their lab tests, even if they don’t feel stressed, BUT they don’t know why they have gained weight. So tune in to learn more about the relationship between stress and weight gain and what you can do about it.
