How The Body Goes Into Famine Mode When In Stress
When we perceive that we are in fear we trigger the stress response.
When that happens the following occurs:
Our blood pressure increases;
Cortisol levels increase;
Your Metabolism slows down;
And we put weight on.
So what do some people do?
They go on a diet, which …..
Basically self-justifies the fact that there is no food available …
So the body’s famine response is justified!
On an ongoing basis this maladaptive response harms us.
Sadly a lot of people live in a state of stress 24/7 365 days a year.
That is no way to live.
