Stepping on the scales but the digits aren’t budging? Don’t worry, if you’re exercising regularly and eating right, you are probably making significant changes despite what the scales show. You see, fat loss and weight loss are two completely different things. You can lose fat and maintain your current weight, and you can also lose weight but maintain a high fat percentage. Some people may even find that they are losing weight, but their body fat percentage is increasing. In this iWellness Show exclusive, our Body Plot experts help us navigate this conundrum.
We’ve talked about the difference between fat loss and weight loss and how we don’t need to do any fad diet but actually the secret is inside your own homes. Many of us think we need to just focus on nutrition or go for a jog every day, but are we missing a trick here? Are there other components that people don’t talk about that can help us truly get healthier, fitter and lose fat?
Stress is a feeling of being under abnormal pressure. This pressure can come from different aspects of your day-to-day life, such as increased workload, a transitional period, an argument you have with your family or new and existing financial worries. You may find that it has a cumulative effect, with each stressor building on top of one another.
In this episode, the Bodyplot experts delve into the situations where you may feel threatened or upset and your body might create a stress response. This can cause a variety of physical symptoms, change the way you behave, and lead you to experience more intense emotions and especially weight gain.
