Stress is inevitable,一点压力是正常的，实际上对我们有好处（信不信由你！) when it's in small amounts,but too much stress isn't good,and this is also the case when we are trying to burn body fat and lose weight.
Stress to the body can come from many forms,比如忙碌，担心，焦虑，constant over-thinking and analyzing,deadlines and pressures at work,睡眠不足，超重，poor food choices,太多咖啡因，receiving too many notifications from your phone/emails/social media,不健康的关系，the list can go on.所有这些都以同样的方式给身体造成压力。
When any of these stressors is encountered the brain signals trigger the release of natural chemical messengers,namely cortisol,adrenaline and noradrenaline.这些信使的出现使身体的系统以各种方式（例如增加流向手臂和腿的血液流量）对感知到的压力作出反应。或者提高你的心率和呼吸频率——因为也许你需要在身体处于感知的life threatening situation),在一切重新回到正常的平静自我之前。
When feelings of stress are prolonged or excessive,这会影响你的身心健康，and also inhibit your ability to exercise and or get a good night's sleep,which will then cause more stress to the body.更糟糕的是，经常处于压力之下会阻碍你努力工作的脂肪燃烧过程。When your body is under stress it's not worried about breaking down fat and getting you a six pack of abs,它担心拯救你的生命。Cortisol the stress hormone is actually a fat storing hormone,所以当身体不断产生高水平的皮质醇时，你的身体实际上开始储存你作为燃料吃的食物，as your body thinks it's saving your life and doing the best thing for you,so this stored fuel can then be used at a later date.
所以，解决办法是什么？有很多，but the number one most effective way to lower the stress response is simply by breathing diaphragmatically.缓慢的呼吸可以告诉你的神经系统它是安全的，and not in a"感知的life threatening situation.坐在舒适的位置或仰卧，and breath slowly and deeply into your belly (letting your belly rise and fall) by breathing in for 4 counts,hold for 4 counts,and release for 4 counts,do this 10-15 times.This is the best way to relax your nervous system.
Other good options are to create a regular meditation practice,经常做瑜伽或太极，and practicing mindfulness are all known to inhibit the negative impacts stress can have on your body.There also a number of nutrients that can help such as magnesium (found in meat,nuts,seeds,leafy greens),B-complex vitamins (found in meat,鱼，whole grains,green leafy vegetables),维生素C（在浆果中发现，柑橘类水果，red capsicums,花椰菜）
