Do You Lose or Gain Weight With Stress?

It all depends on what is happening with your insulin and cortisol hormones.

Key Points:

• Acute Stress (Short Term) – lowers insulin, which means you may lose weight.

• Chronic Stress (Long Term) – increases insulin, which converts glucose into fat. You would gain weight.
