In my book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Hormone Weight Loss, I discuss Principle #4, Energize with Stress Reduction and Sleep. Stress causes a rise in cortisol, one of our fight or flight hormones. Listen in as I discuss the connection between stress, cortisol, insulin and weight gain. Then, our expert, Manuela Stoerzer Vogt, will teach us the ease and effectiveness of a walking meditation. I was amazed at how beneficial this technique is! I will also discuss other simple practices you can incorporate into your life today to help you reduce stress and balance your hormones. Thank you to my sponsor, ZRT Laboratories, for their help!
