Necessary Weight Loss Tips - Dr.Dirk Johns

Description:

Stress can have a negative effect on your mental and physical health. The worst thing that comes along with stress is the unintended weight gain. Stress is a major contributor to weight gain and can have long-term negative effects, if not dealt with. When we're under a lot of stress, a stress hormone is released known as cortisol. Cortisol tricks our minds into craving unhealthy junk foods containing more fat and sugar. When you're in the initial stages of stress, you may not feel like eating food and avoid it completely. However, in the long run, your hunger will increase and you’ll end up eating unhealthy junk food. This presentation provides valuable information on how stress leads to weight gain. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

4 Ways That Stress Leads to Weight Gain
2
Introduction
  • Stress can affect both your mental and physical
    health.The worst part is the unintended weight
    gain that comes with a stressful situation in
    your life.
  • Stress is a major contributor to weight gain and
    can have long-term negative effects if not dealt
    with.
  • When we're under a lot of stress, a negative
    response is triggered in our bodies, resulting in
    the release of a stress hormone known as
    cortisol.
  • The cortisol hormone tricks our minds into
    craving junk foods containing more fat and sugar.
    At the initial stages of stress, you may avoid
    eating food, but in the long run, it'll increase
    your hunger and youll end up eating unhealthy
    junk foods.

How stress is related to weight gain
  • 1. Forget to Eat
  • During stressful times, we may either not feel
    like eating or we eat less.
  • Missing a meal can sometimes lead to a metabolic
    slowdown and lower blood sugar levels.
  • When youre too busy or stressed out, having a
    little healthy snack can help you out. Oatmeal,
    raspberries, chocolate milk and a few others are
    a good option to make you feel less stressed.

  • 2. Gaining an Extra Layer of Fat
  • One of the unfortunate things that happens when
    we're chronically stressed out is we end up
    growing an extra layer of fat on our bellies.
  • Having excess belly fat for an extended period of
    time is unhealthy. Fat in our bodies can release
    chemicals resulting in inflammation, thus
    increasing the chance of heart disease.
  • Our body needs energy and it becomes important to
    have a proper diet during times of stress.

  • 3. Craving Fast Food
  • When we're under the effects of anxiety or
    stress, we crave more food,especially junk food.
  • We often find a lack of time to prepare food and
    little mental energy given towards eating healthy
    food. This is largely seen in urban cities where
    work life takes a larger toll and the percentage
    of people with stress is higher. Fast foods are
    predators and our stressed out minds give up,
    resulting in weight gain.

  • 4. Sleep Constraints
  • Do you ever stay up late due to work or personal
    issues? Worry is a major cause of insomnia, which
    affects the overall body. To stay awake and keep
    our minds functioning, we drink coffee or
    alcohol, which makes us feel better. This
    certainly adds to weight gain.
  • Lack of sleep disrupts the chemicals ghrelin and
    leptin, which control your appetite. Having no
    control over your appetite, ultimately,
    contributes to weight gain.

  • Its not that you cannot control your hunger or
    stress. Following the right exercise routine and
    keeping a healthy diet are some ways to bring
    down your weight.
