stress & weight

Do you –

  • Stress eat?

  • Eat when you aren't hungry?

  • Crave sugar and/or carbs, like pastries or chips?


You are not alone. It is scientifically proven that individuals suffering from prolonged stress have greater difficulty losing weight. This is due to elevated levels of cortisol in the body.


Refined carbs like white potatoes, white pasta, baked goods and most cereals are rapidly broken down into simple sugars which are readily absorbed into the bloodstream. This craving is your body's way of trying to regulate hormones so you feel better, but it is also causes risky spikes in your blood insulin levels (known as the sugar crash).


If left unchecked, your stress-induced cravings for sugar and refined carbohydrates will continue to sabatoge your weight management goals.


By signing up to work with our integrative health coach*, you will create a stress management plan that approaches weight loss from a holistic perspective.


* Coaching is not about quick fixes or fad diets. It asks for determination and committment. If you are willing to do the work, you will be rewarded with positive lifestyle changes leading to sustained health and wellbeing.
