Physiologically speaking, some of us with PCOS and weight issues often respond to everyday sources of stress in ways that make a quick fix of junk food all the more tempting.
Whether it’s a baby crying loudly in a supermarket, standing in a long line to pay for an item in a department store or being late for an appointment, the agitation you can feel causes the body to release a stress hormone called cortisol.
This, in turn, triggers the release of neuropetide Y and galanin – the brain chemicals that affect your mood, keep you alert and boost energy, making you increasingly hungry for sugary and fatty food.
At the same time, cortisol suppresses serotonin, a calming neurotransmitter that helps to keep depression and anxiety under control. All of these biological factors make healthy eating and weight loss that much harder.
So tomorrow we’ll show how to fight back against sources of stress in order for you to enjoy better health.
