Too often, we beat ourselves up for putting on weight - for not resisting the myriad of temptations (even those that look healthy - but really aren't)... and for not having enough energy to go to the gym every day...
But there's one other reason that's been confirmed by a recent study that packs on the kilos - and it has nothing to do with what you eat or the time you spend at the gym...
In fact, it's mostly out of your control - but that doesn't mean you can't do anything about it...
Study confirms one of the biggest culprits of weight gain...
In the study, researchers analysed hair samples of participants - and they found that those with more cortisol in their hair (the stress
hormone) were more overweight
compared with those that had less.
Hair sample analyses are a great way to discover which chemicals, hormones and minerals are in your body - and to identify when there's too much of some - and also when there are too little of them.
Dr Golding does hair analysis in his practice in Johannesburg - find out from your doctor where it's available near you. It's non-invasive and can be less expensive than running blood tests through labs.
Other studies have also shown that stress
leads to overeating - but this one linked cortisol levels in hair samples to weigth gain.
Read on to find out how to help reduce cortisol levels...
