IMPACT OF STRESS ON WEIGHT
Stress can lead to weight gain by increasing the production of cortisol, a hormone that promotes fat storage.
Stress can also lead to weight loss by reducing appetite and causing the body to burn more calories.
Long-term exposure to chronic stress has been linked to both weight growth and obesity.
Eating in response to feelings of stress, also known as "stress eating," has been linked to increased body fat.
The inability to get sufficient sleep, brought on by stress, has been linked to an increase in body mass.
Managing stress through exercise, relaxation techniques, and social support can help prevent weight gain.
Eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep can also help manage stress and maintain a healthy weight.
Seeking professional help, such as therapy or counseling, can be beneficial for managing chronic stress and preventing weight gain.
