Weight loss and stress are interrelated. Stress has a significant impact on our overall health, and our weight is no exception. When we experience stress, our bodies release hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which trigger the “fight or flight” response. This response prepares our bodies to react quickly to danger, but it also has other effects that can contribute to weight gain. In this article, we will explore the various ways stress affects weight and what we can do to minimize its impact.
Weight Loss and Stress: How Stress Affects Eating Habits
One of the main ways stress affects weight is through our eating habits. When we are stressed, we may turn to comfort foods, such as sugary or fatty foods, to help us feel better. This can lead to overeating, which can lead to weight gain. Studies have shown that stress can lead to an increase in the consumption of unhealthy foods, particularly those high in sugar and fat. This is because these foods release endorphins in our bodies, which can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
In addition to overeating, stress can also disrupt our sleep patterns, making us feel fatigued and less motivated to exercise, which is another factor that contributes to weight gain. Lack of sleep can also increase our hunger hormones, such as ghrelin, and decrease our fullness hormones, such as leptin, leading to overeating and weight gain.
Weight Loss and Stress: Impact of Stress on Metabolism
Another way stress affects weight is through its impact on our metabolism. Cortisol, the hormone released during stress, is known to increase insulin resistance and cause our bodies to store fat in the abdominal area. This can lead to weight gain and a higher risk of developing health problems such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Cortisol can also increase the production of glucose in our liver, leading to higher blood sugar levels. This can increase our cravings for high-fat and high-sugar foods, contributing to weight gain.
Stress and Mental Health
Finally, stress can also have a negative impact on our mental health, leading to feelings of anxiety and depression. These feelings can further contribute to unhealthy eating habits, physical inactivity, and weight gain. When we are anxious or depressed, we may not feel motivated to exercise or eat a healthy diet, which can lead to weight gain and other health problems.
Coping with Stress and Maintaining a Healthy Weight
To minimize the effects of stress on your weight, it’s important to develop healthy coping mechanisms. This may include exercise, meditation, spending time in nature, or practicing mindfulness. Exercise has been shown to help reduce cortisol levels and improve our mood, making it an excellent tool for managing stress. Meditation and mindfulness can also help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, leading to better mental health and a healthier lifestyle. Although I’m not talking about working out like crazy in a gym all the freaking time! I’m not in favor of that, yet, I lost 15 kgs in 87 days.
In addition to stress management, it’s important to focus on eating a healthy, balanced diet NOT a crash diet for a fad diet that makes you starve. This includes eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, and limiting your consumption of sugary and fatty foods. Eating a well-balanced diet can help maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of developing health problems associated with weight gain.
Well, I dropped 9 Kgs in less than a month by increasing my resting metabolism and sticking to the SUPER EASY process. And you know what happened after that? I dropped a total of 15 Kgs in JUST 87 days! Reversed my depression, anxiety, postpartum depression and ankylosing spondylitis too!

Very few people know about this, but ghrelin, the appetite control hormone, plays a huge role in your overall body weight. Another rarely talked about cause is the amount of willpower needed to lose extra fat. The human brain is not wired in a way that can rely on an endless pool of willpower, which is exactly why exercising and following a diet isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Weight loss and stress seem more intertwined, doesn’t it?
PLEASE STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR NATURAL BRAIN REWIRING AND INSTEAD OF GOING AGAINST IT, GO WITH IT.
Overcoming roadblocks such as cognitive distortion and unresolved trauma have to be your top priority.

THIS IS NOT JUST A RANDOM NUMBER!!! It comes from a LOTTT of research and implementation on my own body.
Finally, it’s important to get enough sleep each night. Aim for at least 7-9 hours of sleep per night, as lack of sleep can increase cortisol levels and contribute to weight gain.
Stress is a major factor in weight gain and overall health. By managing stress through healthy coping mechanisms and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you can minimize its impact on your weight and improve your overall well-being. Remember, taking care of your physical and mental health should be a priority, and reducing stress is a crucial part of that. Now that you have realized the connection between weight loss and stress in detail, check out some unpopular advice.
Ditching Your Cultural Recipes Can Do More Bad Than Good
If you’re tired of this obsession with raw and tasteless veggies, even if they have a little bit of a fancy salad dressing on them, raise your hand! I have been in the same boat as you. Trust me, when I say this, I wholeheartedly believe that no amount of balsamic dressing can replace your mother’s and grandmother’s traditional spice recipe.
For instance, if you have grown up consuming foods rich in spices and herbs, it’s pointless to ditch everything for nothing but a bowl of greens. So, even if the entire weight loss industry tells you to incorporate foods such as beans, cabbage, beets, cauliflower, broccoli, and so on, always remember that there’s no rule saying you have to eat them raw.
As long as you’re not destroying its nutritional value, there’s no harm in experimenting with the recipes. In my household, we prefer curry versions of healthy vegetables or saute them with delicious herbs and spices.
Another step that goes hand in hand for balancing your hormones is a full-fledged energetic realignment. It’s a spiritual aspect based on science for releasing extra weight and achieving your dream health that people rarely talk about.
Now before your skepticism kicks in, let me tell you one thing. This is not a ‘sitting in the Himalayas and giving up all worldly pleasures’ kind of spirituality.
Just like your heart needs to clear out blockages in the arteries to maintain its health, your soul needs to release energy blocks.
It might not happen right now at the snap of your fingers, but it’s only a matter of days you can completely reset your hormones and align your energies with:
- Transformational mutation
- Energetic activation
- Brain drain
- Radical self love
- Energetic Shadow
Again, it might sound alien, but mastering these only takes DAYS! Not years, DAYS!
