The holiday season is upon us. Regardless of the planning and our joyous anticipation of time spent with family, we are entering the most stress-filled time of the year. Paired with the stress is the abundance of sugary and heavy foods, which deplete our energy and increase our waist size.
It is crucial to understand the effect of stress on the body, especially in terms of how our food is digested. When we understand the delicate relationship between stress and digestion, we can head into the holidays with no fear of sluggish and exhausted-filled days and what we may see as unavoidable weight gain.
