Stress makes you fat! This is not really new, but this time we identified the link between stress and obesity. U.S. researchers studied mice in fact, they submitted to stressors, while giving them a normal diet or too many calories. And they were able to show that only those who were under stress and eating too big actually. Importantly, these mice were storing a lot more than they should, given the amount of calories ingested. Everything happens as if the stress causes an additional retention, and a bonus fat. Scientists have even identified the substance that causes this retention: the neuropeptide Y, a sort of small piece of protein. The latter is known to be involved in the mechanisms of storage of fat cells. Scientists suspect it at that targeted a weapon against the beads: by injecting locally produced to block the action of neuropeptide Y, could cause a release of stored fat, and specifically target the belly, thighs, buttocks… True This solution miracle is tentative at best. In any case, if you experience stress, take refuge in the snack is not the solution, even if it’s a natural reflex. Better to eliminate the cause of stress! This removes the pounds at once!
