Fight It!

Your system responds to stress by producing the hormone cortisol, which decreases your metabolism and encourages your body to store fat in your abdominal area. A study at the University of California, San Francisco showed that when stressed women were left alone in a room with unlimited access to food, they ate 57% more than those less stressed. The #1 way to drop your stress level is exercise. You may also be able to lower stress levels with supplements. Most experts recommend getting at least 500mg of omega-3's and about 900mg of vitamin C per day.
