Weight Loss for Stress Reduction

You don't need any reminders about how stressful being overweight can be in this day and age.  The nonstop media barrage of slender people can leave those who even are few pounds overweight feeling depressed and insecure.  Emotional stress is only one part of a much bigger picture, though.  Carrying 10, 20 or even more pounds in excess body fat places a tremendous strain on the body's joints, muscle groups, spine and cells; all of which become stressed at the biological level.

When the body is left to function in a state of system-wide stress, it releases a hormone known as Cortisol as a defense mechanism.  But there's a catch.  Constantly churning out stress hormones can slow the metabolic process, making it all the more challenging for someone to lose weight and enjoy an active life.  At Shelton Weight Loss in Minneapolis, we create custom fat loss programs that address the needs of your body, as well as those of your mood and mental outlook.
