Yesterday I talked about restricting calories and how it prevents weight loss. It's because your body is stressed out since you're not feeding her/him.
Cortisol is the stress hormone. You've probably heard that stress makes you gain weight. And if the stress of lockdown added the quarantine-15, you know what I'm talking about.
But, "just stress less. Take a chill pill," is crappy advice. It's much easier said than done.
Here are some things that actually will work to help you reduce stress and get the scale moving again:
Take a walk
Watching a funny movie
Listen to music
Go for a drive
Get experimental in the kitchen
CONNECT - with a friend or family member
These are free things that can reduce your stress!
Which one(s) will you do this weekend? Please email me on at firstname.lastname@example.org
