3 Habits to Start for Faster Weight Loss

Going through life fast leads to overeating, eating bad food, and being overwhelmed. Be more aware of your food choices. Choose to buy and eat healthier options. Don't forget that you control what you eat, how fast you eat, and the portions you are eating. Did you hear that? You control your weight loss!
Do you have too much to do? Are you overloaded? Are you constantly stressed? Stress can cause weight gain Read this excerpt from an article in FullScript. Stress activates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis which initiates the release of powerful hormones and neurotransmitters to prepare the body to fight. But when the HPA axis activation becomes chronic, it can contribute to weight gain. One key stress hormone, cortisol, is particularly troublesome because when it is chronically elevated, it causes fat to be stored around the waistline; and the higher the cortisol level, the more fat that is stored.
