Weight loss and lifestyle | Musashi – Quality Performance Nutrition

Weight loss and lifestyle

Emotions are more than just how we feel, they are chemical changes in our bodies.  Stress release’s a hormone called cortisol into the body which is detrimental to fat loss.  Cortisol hinders the body’s ability to burn fat and for some people increase the likelihood of food cravings.  Cortisol is termed catabolic (breaks down muscle) and has the opposite effect to the hormone testosterone, which is anabolic (builds muscle tissue). 

Modern life can be over stimulating. Through work, social and family commitments, many of us suffer from stress.  Reducing stress levels, staying positive and having a good balance between exercise and rest can play important roles in lowering cortisol levels in the body. For those who need a little more than eating healthily and reducing stress levels to reach fat loss goals the Musashi Shred and Burn range is a great place to start.
