To quickly recap what to do, eat plenty Halki Diabetes Remedy Review  of monounsaturated fats (which you can find on the labels of any foods you buy) and get a goodly portion of omega-3s (found in nuts and fish mostly). What you want to avoid is saturated fats (such as those in butter and greasy fast food), and avoid trans fats like the plague. Stress is a road block: Your stress levels and your weight are bound together like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Stress causes your body to get fatter and weaker. This happens because the stress response has a series of chemical processes associated with it, but the effect is consistent overall. The more you are consistently stressed, the less effectively your body works. The cycle can quickly spiral out of control, and leave you obese almost before you realize anything is wrong. Your stress level and your weight go hand in hand... a match that was most definitely not made in heaven.

How does your body know what to do? Stress is nothing more than an extended duration "fight or flight" response. When you face stimuli that scares you, you go into the mode of either wanting to fight it or run away from it. Now, when our ancestors faced monstrous critters, this served them well. It undoubtedly saved billions of lives across the generations leading up to the present day. However, you can not run from your boss and expect to escape your performance assessment. You can not expect to beat the IRS into submission with a club!

The problems of the modern world are far more logical in nature. But unfortunately, our bodies just do not realize things like this. Our bodies seriously believe that we are constantly facing life and death struggles against monsters and natural disasters left and right. Less muscle, more fat: This "fight or flight" response releases a chemical known as cortisol into our bloodstream. Cortisol breaks down muscle tissue, which is a liability in a time when food is scarce. Diabetics need this muscle though to store blood sugar which is released from the bloodstream during physical activity. As well, every pound of muscle burns 50 extra calories per day, even if you aren't really doing anything.
