Hope you had a wonderful weekend and not too stressful with shopping, putting trees up, wrapping presents, baking etc. etc?
Did you know being anxious about losing weight could actually be harming your chances of shedding extra pounds, scientists believe.
Have you ever had the experience where you’ve gone on holiday, eaten much more than usual, and lost weight?
This is all down to the fact that we’re relaxed.
Our frame of mind changes our metabolism to such a degree that we can eat more, yet lose weight.
Although, the point is not to reach for absolutely everything you want to eat or take more holidays, but rather more about letting go, relax more and stop stressing over everything for you to achieve a better metabolism.
So if you’re the kind of person who seems to be doing everything right for weight loss but are stuck on the same plateau, ask yourself about stress.
No amount of calorie counting or countless hours at the gym will get you where you want to go. Your task is to do something of the greatest possible difficulty.
Stop producing so much cortisol.
Take a deep breath into your life, be a little more peaceful, and give your calories a chance to burn.
