I was catching up with a friend the other night after a long time. We tend to have very structured catch ups – Life, family, boys, diet/health/weight is the order it tends to go.

She was talking about doing everything to lose those last few kilos. You know the ones, the ones that JUST WON’T BUDGE no matter how healthy you’re eating and how much exercise you’re doing.

Disclosure: I’m not a health professional - but do you know what it is that may be holding back your weightloss? Stress. Yes, stress. I know this sounds like when you’re angry and someone says those horrid and unhelpful two words, “calm down”, but unfortunately this is the reality.
