Does stress makes you fat.
Modern lifestyles are stressing individuals to their maximum by either psychologically or by physical pressure from their career, relationship, and this combined with a sedentary lifestyle is driving them to a state of obesity and ill health.
Being able to understand the area of chaos within your lives that are causing you some distress or tension is the major steps in reducing this stressful situation.
Everyone will experience stress in a different way; what is stressful to one person is not so to another.
This article looks at stress from the above criteria.
My own research study into the metabolic syndrome is not included within this work and it is my understanding that a dysfunction within the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis from severe physical injury is too complex to discuss at this point.
Needless to say, the circulating stress hormone cortisol levels does correlate positively with the severity of the illness and are at their highest shortly before death.
Those whom survive the onslaught and recover from this trauma will generally have a high percentage of acquiring Diabetes mellitus type two.
Top 10 Fitness Excuses… and How to Overcome Them!
Getting fit can be a real battle for some of us. Even though, deep down, we want to make the effort to improve our health, our minds can deceive us into believing our own excuses!

Here’s how you can beat each of these excuses.
Acid reflux occurs when the stomach acids rise out of the stomach into the esophagus and causes a burning sensation.
This burning occurs because unlike the stomach, the esophagus has no protective lining.
There are several causes for acid reflux. The first question you will need to ask your doctor is what is causing your acid reflux. It could be the food you eat, your stress level, the way you sleep, etc.
You will also need to ask if there are any tests you can do to determine if you really do have acid reflux and it’s just not a case of spicy food. The doctor should also inform you on the side effects of the tests that you will go through.

What About Belly fat
Over several decades, researchers have identified strong links between a sedentary lifestyle and a host of chronic diseases, including heart disease, breast and colon cancers, diabetes, osteoporosis, and anxiety and depression.
Only recently have studies focused on that quintessential sedentary activity that leads to you being overweight but it is not just the extra few pounds which concern the medical world but the place this weight goes.
Unlike fat sitting on the hips and thighs, fat around the middle produces substances that can create serious health risks.
No matter what your body shape, excess fat isn’t good for your health. But saddlebags and ballooning bellies are not equivalent.
Your feet are pounding the road. Sweat runs off your brow. You arms and legs pump as you run. And then suddenly without warning, you feel a rush of energy and well-being and the effort of running instantaneously becomes effortless. You wouldn’t think finding yourself in a state of euphoria while you’re exercising is a normal thing.
But, in fact, that state of intense well-being does happen frequently to runners and it is, appropriately enough, called runner’s high although anyone exercising vigorously can experience it.
So what exactly is it?
For years, the scientific community debated as to what exactly was going on inside people’s heads when they described the intense feelings associated with runner’s high. Most theories circled around the idea of endorphins being released in a rush at a certain point during exercise.
Endorphins are chemicals that are released in the body during times of excitement, pain, and eating spicy goods as well as vigorous exercise.
This chemical also blunts any sensation of pain and promotes a feeling of happiness and well-being. Read More…
Weight lifting is becoming a more popular method of being able to maintain health and balance in life. I have enclosed two documents on weight lifting within the header drop down bar called weight training for health and kittlebell for health. When getting into exercise routines, it is important to know what weight lifting can do for you and the effects that it will have on your body. By knowing this, you will be able to determine when and if you should weight lift in your exercise practice.
The major reason behind weight lifting is to change the abilities that are in your muscles. It does this by adding stress to the muscles through specific motions that are not normally done as well as by using weights to add to the stress of the muscle. Over time, this increases the durability that the muscles have, giving you a better physique as well as helping you in building power where it is needed.
A second reason to do resistance training, or weight lifting, is to decrease fat in certain areas. Many times, fat and stored energy will build around muscles. When you weight train, it puts stress on those areas, allowing for the muscle to take over the storage area and burn away the extra fat. If you are looking to lose belly, arm or leg fat, weight lifting and resistance training can help by adding stress to those particular trouble areas. Read More…
