GG’s Diet Tip of the Day


hungryEat when you’re hungry


Never skip meals in order to lose weight. This will backfire quickly, often causing you to overeat in your next meal, and may also result in stress, which increases the cortisol in your body, leading to fat storage. Cortisol, your stress hormone, is the first hormone your body sends out when it senses its under stress, including when you’re hungry and your insulin surges.


Cortisol also triggers your body to store fat as a survival mechanism to cope with the stress it’s under. So eat when you’re hungry and quit ignoring your hunger pains! Eat three meals and two healthy snacks as you need them.
