Chronic Social Stress linked to Obesity

DIETARY MEDICINES might do wonders for the waistline but in reality, all you ever really need is a “chill pill” to stay slim. That’s because chronic stress was found to be linked to obesity in an individual, according to a recently published study.

According to the report, while extreme stress (caused by trauma or grief) lessens a person’s appetite, everyday social stress may actually have the opposite effect, causing individuals to overeat and thus gain weight.

Similar studies also revealed that the quantity of food and the number of meals affect the metabolism of an individual. Those who ate larger but less re uent meals gained more triglycerides, ipids and cholesterol. Meanwhile, those who had smaller but more frequent meals stopped their weight gain.
