Can stress induce weight fluctuations?
I have been stressed lately and have also noticed fluctuations in my weight. Can this happen? How can I avoid this?
Absolutely, stress hormone (cortisol) is said to be linked to insulin production and increased fat storage in the body, leading to fluctuations in weight. This is also the reason why stress is one of the most important factors to be considered while working on your health goals.
You can try deep breathing or guided meditation to manage the stress on a day to basis or seek the help of a professional if you feel it’s something beyond your control.
