Does stress cause weight gain?
Does stress cause weight gain? Are you noticing more weight around your middle? After you have ruled out pregnancy or a huge dinner, a significant reason people gain weight is because stress releases cortisol which also increases blood sugar. When the stressful event is over, you still have a high level of blood sugar and the excess glucose becomes stored as fat.
Stress is a natural response to a threat, ‘perceived’ or imagined fear. But constant ‘stressing’ is a habit behaviour that harms your health, energy and beautiful body. Like any habit, it can be retrained into something more preferable.
