Stress not only compromises the immune system, but it also hinders recovery from workouts. How you cope with stress can affect your fitness and nutrition goals. When we are stressed, we want to be comforted. So we look for external things to take away the “pain” of stress food, alcohol, smoking, etc. These things cause a release of neurotransmitters.

Continue to ride your cravings through in this way – taking the opportunity to do something pleasurable and relaxing that doesn’t involve food – and you’ll not only feel more relaxed, you’ll break the habit of comfort eating. Which is good for your health, your wellbeing – and of course your. IT SABOTAGES YOUR WEIGHT LOSS GOALS Cortisol, or the stress hormone as it is known is far higher when you’re experiencing stress, and high levels of cortisol encourages insulin production which could result in sugar cravings. It can also slow down your metabolism, which isn’t good news if weight loss is your goal. “Stress produces the hormone cortisol, and cortisol has also been linked to triggering cravings for comfort foods.” In addition, stress increases insulin levels, which impacts your ability to burn off those comfort foods.

Whenever you start to plateau, it’s a good idea to take a.

  • Christine plzzzzz help, I work out 5 days a week, I’ve lost inches as well as some weight. Problem is it seems my back, especially lower back is getting worse, I look like I have gills. What am I doing or not doing? Plzzzz respond. ��

  • I just downloaded one of your Shreds… it looks great but I have a concern about the calories… I calculated my macros in accordance with the formula you presented in your previous videos. My baseline (BMRxActivityFactor) is 2,556 kcal (I’m quite tall… with a moderately physical job), and I know that you aren’t supposed to go past 800 kcal below that to lose weight healthily, but your plan calls for 1555-1260 kcal… am I supposed to adjust for that?

  • I am so suprised at how in america alcohol is something people drink every day and it seems so normal. And in the comments I saw someone say that for birthdays coworkers would bring cakes in very frequently. That would absolutely never happen in my country, I’m so surprised you guys! I can’t bring regular cookies/cakes to work if they’re not low in calories/fat/sugars because then maybe one person out of 8 will eat them (even when they’re delicious! Sweets always take a decade to disappear)! And if someone drank alcohol on a daily basis (e.g. with friends, when going out/eating) people will think you have an addiction or are unhealthy… Even friends would tell you that you probably shouldn’t drink that night because you did the past evenings. Is america really that bad? Please tell me it isn’t I want to believe ��

  • Christine I friggen love you!! I always tune in to GaugeGirl at least once a week!!
    I am also a client of yours and the custom plans that you gave me helped me even though a lot has happened since then and I have fallen off the wagon and gained all that weight back:( I know I can always turn to you because I believe in your capabilities of what you’re doing and what you’re talking about! I’m still trying to figure out what’s right for me because I know what my problems are and identifying them is the biggest issue when it comes to my weight gain, I think my next step is to get some online coaching because I know I need help!!
    Thank you for all your videos and guidance:D

  • Now, Christine, I have a question for you. For women, like myself who have been very consistent on nutrition and training, I’ve noticed in myself that I’m losing inches around my waste, the muscles in my glutes and arms have been much more toned and defined, definitely growing, however I’m finding that the number of the scale has only gone down like 3-4 lbs over the last 6-8 weeks. I would like your opinion on subcutaneous fat vs visceral fat. Are there different training methods? Nutrition tips? Or what are most likely the cause of the scale not reflecting the visual results?

  • OMG! I have never ever been able to relate to a talk as much as this one, it literary sounds like my story and my reaction to the long time sickness I had!

  • Hi, I recently discovered your channel and I think it is sooo useful and informative! I would like to check which type of diet works for me, so do keto for some time and then HCLF and see differences in how I feel, look etc. What is the minimum time of trying these diets to actually know how it works on my body? Is 2 weeks for each enough?

  • Could you please do a video on intermittent fasting? It’s been popping up everywhere and there are reputed sites like CNN supporting it while other people say not to try it. Thank you for your videos, they are always so knowledgeable and sincere!

  • Thank you Christine. I feel like your last few videos were made just for me. I recently purchased your mesomorph workout. Can’t wait to get started.

  • Again, Kenneth, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m hoping that at 74 I can still fulfill my purpose. I believe that sharing my love through warm hugs and good foodis a part of my purpose and is warmly received. Again and alwaysthank you ��

  • I ve been trying to manifest my ultimate soccer reality and not just getting there i believe i already have it with the correct emotions and belief but its not manifesting??

  • I would love to see a video are you go more in-depth about what alcohol does in your body. I had no idea that it’s like pulling over for a day because your body can’t process fat when it processes alcohol. The science behind that would be really interesting to hear

  • Hey, Tom! I like your vids. Hey, perhaps you’d like to have an expert talk about Th1/Th2/Th17 dominance of the immune system. Just a thought. Thanks!

  • Can you explain he phenomenon where alcoholics lose a ton of weight? I have always found this confusing since the science says you can’t burn fat while drinking.

  • THis shit is sooo basic. LOL! And then at 9:30 when he said something like “I don’t want technology to put you into some kind of mood swing” I remembered the day last week when I ate the WORLD because I was distraught that my scale showed that I gained 9oz. SHEEEESH. fo sho.

  • Wow… when he said “look at your past self and hug them” I started to tear up. Crazy. Love the voice behind the guided meditation and music. Everyone looking at this comment have a great day ����

  • I was always cold and tired. I thought it was my iron being low all the time. I was working 9hr days 6 days a week, with 3 kids Ages 12, 8, and 6. One has autism. Stress was literally killing me. I know this cancer is forcing me to slow down and listen to my body

  • Firstly thank you for the talk gentlemen… Technology is here to stay and young people get phone separation anxiety and maybe some older people have phone separation anxiety I’ve never had anything measured in my life and lm 54 years old and feel fantastic STOP measuring get to bed early get up early drink plenty of water smile tell jokes grow your own vegetables and have fun fun fun

  • THANK you with LOVE ��for an warm and abundant meditation which both CALMED and INSPIRED me in my HEALINGJOURNEY ��,NAMASTE ������
