Stress and depression
People suffering stress and depression tend to gain pounds. Women are especially sensitive and for them to shed pound is far more difficult if they are constantly experiencing sadness and frustration. Negative emotions greatly influence our eating habits. As a rule, most people are trying to calm themselves down by consuming sugary and fatty foods to feel happier and relaxed. Besides this, they stop being as active as they used to be when they were not suffering depression. The result – extra pounds around your waist. The solution is: Move, move, move! It improves your mood. Right after your very first workout session you will feel better which will motivate you to keep on going. If nothing helps, consult a therapist.
