There are several ways that stress can contribute to weight gain: one of which has to do with cortisol— the stress hormone. When we’re under stress, the fight or flight response is triggered in our bodies, leading to the release of various hormones, including cortisol.
Living a healthy, stress-free lifestyle involves making decisions that improve and maintain one’s health and well-being. Our goal is not only to help our patients lose weight, but to also improve the overall quality of their health.
Our scientific, multi-pronged approach includes:
- Lifestyle guidance
- Education and support
- Meal planning
- A moderate protein diet
- Cutting out sugar and refined carbohydrates
The benefits of healthy living can be measured with critical health numbers including weight, blood sugar levels, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and healthy cortisol levels. A healthy lifestyle is a lifelong effort that requires a lot of discipline and support. Eating healthy, engaging in physical activities, weight management and stress reduction practices are all excellent ways to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
