3 ways to stop stress making you fat

Follow these simple steps to keep your mind and body on track to a satisfied and slimmer you!

1. Eat eggs for breakfast

They’re rich in B vitamins, which improve your brain’s ability to deal with high-pressure situations at work that would usually send you sprinting to the vending machine.

2.Take a walk

Just 18 minutes of walking three times a week lowers your levels of cortisol. This stress hormone triggers your body to store energy from food as fat.

3. Be optimistic

Having a sunny outlook is associated with lower levels of anxiety, according to US scientists. And studies show that when you’re less wound up, you’re less likely to gorge on salty, high-fat junk food.
