Are you stressed? It May be the cause for weight gain- obesity

When we are stressed, level of cortisol “stress hormone” increases in our body developing overeating habits to beat our stress. This increased level of hormone also causes your insulin level to increase and you crave for sugary and fatty foods. That’s the reason that instead of a banana or a salad you try to reach for junk foods.
So when you are stressed you must keep in mind that you are not overdoing any exercise as it further increase cortisol level. Try light exercise such as brisk walk, yoga, meditation will help you to calm down. Try to eat small frequent meals. Add dates or figs or nuts or flax seeds or chia seeds to your diet.
