You may be hitting a plateau and quite frustrated. You’re eating clean, working out hard and not shedding those last “x” amount of pounds. Hmmmm…..how’s your stress level these days?

“Stress is a fact of life.

Chronic high stress can cause surges in your cortisol levels.

Hi cortisol levels will contribute to weight gain and to your difficulty in losing weight.

Effective stress management can help reduce your cortisol levels.

Lower cortisol levels will help you lose weight… and improve your health.”
