Has Your Body Betrayed You? Stressed Out and Hungry?

Hormones, Stressors, and Evolutionary Times by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Certified Hypnotist, Author and 50-pound Big-Time-Loser. (write for free consultation)
When we feel threatened or stressed, our neuroendocrine system kicks into high gear and releases a series of hormones. One of these is Cortisol, which gives us the biochemical strength we need to fight or flee our stressors. Back in evolutionary times, this served us well. We needed to replenish our bodies after a bout with a man-eating lion. It was a survival issue.
In modern times, most of our stress comes to us in a less physical form from balancing our checkbooks, filling out college applications to making car payments. Yet, we are still hard-wired to release the same hunger-causing hormones as our loin-cloth wearing ancestors. The stress is still there, but the physical exertion isn’t.
We can’t help feeling hungry, but we can work at ways to feel less stressed, which will keep the food cravings in check.
Here are some ways to short circuit stress and weight gain.

Eight Ways to Beat Weight Gain and Reduce Stress
from Our Lady of Weight Loss, Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal

1. Exercise: Still the best stress-buster in town.
2. Never Skip a Meal: Keep the blood sugar levels even.
3. Restful sleep: When we don’t get enough rest, Cortisol levels rise!
4. Relax: What activities make you feel relaxed and calm?
5. Deep Breathing Exercises: Take a moment to stop everything and breathe!
6. Meditate: Sit and center yourself. Take a spiritual break.
7. Avoid caffeine, cigarettes and alcohol: All three can cause Cortisol levels to rise.
8. Express YOURself: Feast on your own creativity.
If you can’t keep those Cortisol levels down, and the refrigerator is calling you, choose wisely. Fruit over the three C’s (cake, cookies, candy)!

(Take a 2:48 minute break at home or office.)
Is there more to breathing than you thought?

    This No Nonsense Muscle Building program was developed and written by Vince Delmonte, a guy who went from being a thin and scrawny long distance runner to a rock solid 210 pounds with only 10% body fat. Vince is a very well respected competitive fitness trainer and model. He has authored hundreds of outstanding articles for various websites and magazines.
    Vince makes it clear that this is no ‘magic’ program that builds muscles with little work required. The methods in the program are the exact same methods that helped Vince build over fifty pounds of lean muscle in just a half of a year.
