Constant stressful situations can lead to weight gain, American nutritionist Pippa Campbell warned.
If a person is eating healthy and exercising but still not seeing results, they may be missing a key point. According to the expert, it is very important to learn how to cope with stress.
“Two important things I look for with new clients suffering from belly fat are cortisol and insulin,” the medic said.
Cortisol is known as the main stress hormone. And if a slight increase is normal, then chronically high levels of cortisol can become a problem and cause extra pounds. In particular, it is the stress hormone that promotes overeating and increases appetite, Campbell concluded.
Nutritionist Natalya Nefedova previously gave advice on drinking coffee. She warned that the drink can disrupt the absorption of nutrients.
