Did you know that the more stress you have in your life the more weight you’re likely to gain? Studies have shown that when our bodies are under stress, they produce steroids that result in weight gain.

So, if you’re doing all the right things to lose weight but aren’t losing any, check out your stress level. If you’ve got high stress, chances are your weight loss will be slow. Enhance your other weight loss strategies by taking some time to slow down, breathe, and relax. Get a massage, take a slow walk, go to a great movie, and just chill out! You’ll lose more weight that way!
