Stress Reduction May Help People Lose Weight

Reducing stress could help people lose weight, according to a University of Florida study in the journal BBA Molecular and Cell Biology of Lipids. Chronic stress promotes production of betatrophin, a protein that reduces the body’s ability to break down fat. These findings were found in this study involving animal metabolism, and further research is needed to study the effect of betatrophin in humans. This however provides an interesting insight into how reducing chronic stress might help people lose weight. Also reported in HealthDay News.
