Stress and Fat: Discover the Stress and Fat Connection

Written by Carmellita M. Brown

Can a pill reduce stress and “stubborn” belly fat?  The answer to this question may shock you and save your life.  Discoverrepparttar real connection between stress and fat.  The “diet” and weight-loss industry has preyed on our lack of knowledge about health, fitness, and nutrition for too long.  Since much ofrepparttar 131208 truth has been exposed aboutrepparttar 131209 fat-free fad,repparttar 131210 low-carb fad, andrepparttar 131211 food pyramid misrepresentation inrepparttar 131212 Standard American Diet (SAD),repparttar 131213 “diet” and weight-loss industry has revamped its approach by jumping onrepparttar 131214 “stress factor” bandwagon.    Let’s get down torepparttar 131215 truth.  Stress causes fat.  Stress causes fat by chemical imbalances inrepparttar 131216 body.  These chemical imbalances are related torepparttar 131217 body’s pH level.  pH levels above 7.0 is alkaline and pH levels below 7.0 is alkaline.  The body’s a properly pH balanced body is slightly alkaline at about 7.365.  This level of alkaline produces healthy cells.  Healthy cells produce health tissue such as lean muscle.  Unhealthy cells—acidic cells produce fatty acids which produce fatty tissue.    However, there is more to consider.  Where does stress originate?  It originates inrepparttar 131218 body.  When we haverepparttar 131219 right nutrients in our biological terrain (inside of our body), life is less likely to stress you out.  Hence, much ofrepparttar 131220 stress we have comes fromrepparttar 131221 foods we eat.       Forrepparttar 131222 average person, 80% percent of what we eat has no nutritional value.  About 40% ofrepparttar 131223 foods we consume are meats and animal products such as milk, cheese, butter, which have nutrients, but these nutrients do not assimilate well inrepparttar 131224 Human body.  We eat it because we enjoyrepparttar 131225 way it tastes and because it gives us a temporary sense of fullness.  The other 40% is processed foods such as pastas, breads, canned foods, and frozen foods.  Only about 20% of what we eat is actually raw fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds.  This ratio not only promotes anaerobic pathogens, it also causes obesity, nerve damage, allergies, and stress.   The symptoms of stress, low self-esteem, and depression are results of chemical imbalances that often manifests as excess weight. In a vicious cycle, excess weight gain and food addiction contribute to many physical, emotional and spiritual maladies.  However,repparttar 131226 source can be linked to biochemical imbalances caused by acidosis.  Again, pH vitality isrepparttar 131227 answer.   Often times what has been diagnosed as “food addiction”, “stress”, “emotional eating” isrepparttar 131228 result of acidosis (a highly acidic biological terrain).    Emotional stress can decreaserepparttar 131229 body’s alkalinity just as acidosis can cause stress.  Why are so many people so stressed?  Well, most people have a pH level of about 5.1 to 6.0.  With an acidic biological terrain such as this, stress flourishes.  The stress stems fromrepparttar 131230 amount of pressure placed onrepparttar 131231 body to try to alkalizerepparttar 131232 internal environment so that it can release metabolic waste.   You feel pressure because your body feels pressure.  For example, have you ever tried to work in a junky office with papers piled up onrepparttar 131233 floor, desk, and in chairs?  Inrepparttar 131234 office, there is dust everywhere and nothing is in order.  There’s hardly any room onrepparttar 131235 desk forrepparttar 131236 computer because books are stacked up everywhere and just as you clear a space onrepparttar 131237 desk…someone brings in five more stacks of paper and coversrepparttar 131238 desk again.  How much work do you think you would get done in this environment?  How stressed do you think you would be?
