It is the natural response to the stress, anxiety and chemistry within your body.
It is proven that most of us overeat when we are feeling a lot of stress. This happens thanks to your fight-or-flight response, or survival mode. When your body reaches a certain stress level, it does what it feels it needs to, which in most cases means to overeat. You have over 60,000 thoughts per day, more than 80% of them are negative. These negative thoughts come into effect when your body takes action. Your body is tricked by your mind to think it needs more calories.
Another problem is that your bodies stress-response increases levels of cortisol in your body. Your anxiety is causing these cortisol levels to cause fat to build up in the stomach and leads to an increase in weight. The longer that a person experiences stress and anxiety, the more weight he or she can potentially gain.
Anxiety is also known to disturb sleep patterns. One study from the University of Chicago found that lack of sleep can reduce fat loss by 55%. But if you struggle with anxiety, getting enough sleep can be a real challenge.
Also, when you are feeling anxious it is easy to lose track of what you are eating, how much and make unhealthy choices.
If you are dealing with a lot of anxiety, going to the gym is probably the last thing you feel like doing. Of course, this lowered amount of movement will burn less calories and add to your overall weight.
