Stress seminar

Thank you to all who attended the Stress seminar this week. Here are a few takeaways from the seminar.

Work, relationships, money, kids, traffic, food...
These are just a few of the things that stress us daily. Many people do not realize the affect long-term stress can have on our bodies. Its estimated that 75-90% of chronic health conditions are related to stress. Stress also has a big impact on our weight and our ability to lose weight. It can cause us to have increased cravings for comfort foods, increase our blood sugar and ability to process carbohydrates, prevents the breakdown of fats, increases belly fat, and can lower our metabolism, and cause insomnia or sleep disturbances.

One of the first questions I ask a client who I am meeting with is "What is your level of stress?" The reason being is this will affect the type of nutrition plan, exercise plan, and rate of weight loss.

Food can also be a stress to the body. Nutrition recommendations are to get adequate protein, Healthy fats, limit sugar and all processed foods, high fiber REAL carbs, limit caffeine, and eat regular meals throughout the day.

Bottom line we all have stress. Its our perception to it and how we cope with it that determines how it affects our health!
