Stress and weight : Streas can contribute to weight gain. First of all people may eat more when stressed and be less motivated to exercise. Because cortisol levels rise in stress this can impair the way your body handles calories causing more conversion to fat. If you are taking an anti-depressant many of these drugs are associated with weight gain. Talk to yor doctor.
