Weight watchers

Many Montrealers do not realize that physical symptoms can also be affected by too much stress. Some Montrealers eat too much and gain weight when they are under too much stress and others loss weight.

Montrealers flock to weight loss programs in the city such as, the weight watchers on Jean Talon, yet they don’t seem to be losing as much weight as they had hoped, and this could be due to stress.

Other factors effecting weight gain

Besides stress causing weight gain and looking for solutions for controlling weight, there are other factors that could be going on in the body which is associated with stress. These factors could include: excessive use of alcohol, drugs, tobacco smoking, and even lack of ambition.

There are psychological indicators for stress that also affect our mental health and these would include, relationship problems and a low level tolerance for change.

Exactly! i had the same stress related problems back in 2008-2013 due to PTSD caused by spine injury. no matter how cautious I was about my diet and exercises. My TG levels were 320 and HDL 26. The stress increases a hormone called cortisol in the blood stream that increases the cholesterol levels
