Motherhood Unstressed

May 18, 2020

Is stress making you gain weight? This week, functional medicine and nutrition coach,  Rachel Rotabi explains how stress affects your hormones, which can lead to extra fat. Plus, she reveals key nutrients that can help reduce belly fat and how to add it into your daily routine. 

In this episode we talk about:

- the main barriers to losing weight;

- optimal nutrition and how to easily incorporate it into your diet,

- key lab tests to request at your next doctor's visit (i.e. fasting insulin levels, liver markers, micronutrient test, and more);

- the physiological effects of chronic stress (hypertension, diabetes, insulin resistance, thyroid issues, weight gain etc); and

- how to reduce stress so that you can lose weight, sleep better, and most importantly feel better.
