When you are under stress you tend to eat more fat and sugar. Moreover, stress releases the stress hormone “cortisol”. Most of all, cortisol results in more belly fat and glucose. Also stress makes you sleep less, exercise less, and drink more alcohol. So it’s important to relieve your stress as quickly as possible. Many people like to bulldoze their way through stress episodes. However, that approach harms your body. Instead, use stress relief methods, such as the ones shown in the infographic, to bring you stress relief. As additional benefit it will help you fight fat.
Getting stress relief is one strategy to manage fat. The other strategies include cardio, strength training, sleep, food, smoking & alcohol, and perseverance. If done with intensity and especially accompanied by sweating, cardio burns fat throughout the body. Also, strength training builds up muscles. And the more muscle mass you build, the more fat gets burned. Moreover, muscles burn fat even when you are resting. Furthermore, getting adequate sleep helps control fat. In addition, what you eat has a huge impact on your waistline. And, if you don’t want fat to get accumulated around the belly, stop smoking. Finally, drinking too much alcohol causes you to eat more and gain weight. Because it takes time for the body to get rid of excess fat, perseverance is needed to succeed.
