Dealing With Stress and Weight Loss When Time Poor

How To Manage Stress and Weight Loss When Time Poor
Stress and Weight Loss

As the series of frequently asked questions continues, another popular debate is that of how to deal with stress and weight loss. Unfortunately, stress and the hormone cortisol can be a volatile component to weight loss.  Cortisol can damper a healthy metabolism, promote inflammation, and trigger over-eating.  However, all is not lost and there are actually simple cures that work for most when it comes to dealing with stress and weight loss when poor on time.  Here is my response to this question:

Hi Dimity,

Your query on “Time Management and Stress Reduction Practices” is one I have helped hundreds of clients with. Although, I’m not a PhD in this subject, I’m a personal trainer, strength coach, nutritionist and lifestyle consultant and exercise and nutrition are the easiest ways to de-stress and develop time management skills.  Helping others make health and fitness a priority is one of the main inspirations for my fitness network, Workout Anywhere. Whether at home, work or while traveling, we made the excuse of not having enough time, or not having a gym membership obsolete. It comes down to scalability, along with effective time management.  Workout Anywhere has mastered this and is the perfect stress release for the busy individual.

Before I go into efficient and effective exercise routines, Let me discuss the powerful, one-two punch from frequent exercise and raw, organic vegetable and fruit juices.  A surplus of vegetables and moderate fruit can neutralize stress and actually create a stress free environment for the body. Cortisol (the stress hormone) is an inflammatory response due to stress. Inflammation is full of free radicals and cell destroying oxidants. In the presence of more oxygen and antioxidants, inflammation is neutralized and dissolved. Raw juices are the perfect source for a potent dose of antioxidants, while exercise oxidates the circulatory system. This creates two components that free radicals and cortisol prefer to avoid.

Daily Weigh-Ins Can Add to Stress

Now that vegetables and fruit are back into the mix, let’s overview the popular stress and weight loss workout routines.  Most popular home fitness programs are often too difficult for all ability levels and can take up to 45 minutes or more.  In contrast, CrossFit workouts are somewhat scalable, and efficient (typical workouts take eight to fifteen minutes), but generally the mentality of CrossFit is high intensity. Even with the efficiency component, one still needs to travel to a CrossFit gym. Workout Anywhere provides a quick and efficient, fat burning workout for all ability levels.

Average workout lasts 15 minutes and require no equipment. Some pieces are recommended, but these are affordable and transportable. As well, Workout Anywhere is accessible through mobile phones, tablets, computers and televisions. If one can commit to 15 minutes, then a beginner, intermediate or advanced fitness level can have a solid workout anywhere. I hope my information answers your query. Our system has helped a number of buys professionals and parents while demolishing excuses. The only complaints we have heard are the wines of sore muscles.

Thank you Dimity for this opportunity.
