Does Stress Make you Fat?
Are you eating properly and still fat & obese, don't feel like going to gym/swimming/any other workout acitivity.? Can't figure out what's happening to you?
The world is getting competitive & we are becoming busy in our fast lives that we have no time for ourselves, sometimes no time to eat our lunch too. Our body is becoming weaker & we don't understand how the previous generation was much healthier than us!
Stress is taking a toll on our lives. For every moment of anger/frustration, we are making our lives worser. They make us obese, as stress hormones are released which do not allow fat burning process to occur. It converts carbs into fat and makes us lazier.. There are days when we just do not want to do anything but lay on the bed 24 hours. It is a sign which you must take seriously and plan some work out activities.
Working out makes feel lighter, balances our mood & regulates the stress levels in the body.
