Stress can lead to weight gain. This is something we have often wondered about. Cortisol is a hormone released by stress, and cortisol causes weight gain.
This hormone is higher in the morning so busting stress in the morning is a great way to reduce cortisol levels and its belly growing effects. Here are 3 simple ways.
We all want to live healthy. Here is a simple way to find out if your weight has led to increased risk of problems.
Is your waist equal to or less than - half your height
(can be inches or cm)
If your waist is more than half your height then you are having excess of fat around your belly. This fat accumulation is associated with a higher risk of metabolic disorders and diseases.
Some people's weight is distributed across their bodies, they are at less risk exposure. Sometimes people are lean but their belly is bulging out.
What should you do if your waist is larger than it should be?
You should look at adjusting your lifestyle, whether it be food or exercise to bring your waist down. Personally I would suggest food & nutrition because it controls 90% of the results. You can lose 6 kg in a month with food, but you cannot lose 6 kg with exercise alone.
