Orem, Utah (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
A new study of 58 women conducted by researchers at Ohio State University studied the impact of stress on metabolism after eating a high-fat meal equivalent to a double patty burger and french fries from a fast food restaurant, about 930 calories and 60 grams of fat. Researchers measured each woman’s resting metabolism for 20 minutes every hour for 7 hours, conducting the study twice on each woman.
Results showed that women who had experienced a stressful event in their lives during the previous 24 hours burned an average of 104 fewer calories than women who had not experienced any recent stress. The women who were stressed also had an insulin spike after eating that leveled out to match the non-stressed women within 90 minutes. The resulting change in metabolism could lead to gaining 11 pounds in a single year.
The impact of stress on metabolism was heightened in women who had a history of depression. The combination of depression and recent stress initiated a spike in triglyceride levels immediately following the high-fat meal. High concentrations of triglycerides in the blood increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Experts at NutriGold emphasize that stress often cannot be avoided, but the impact of stress on obesity can be mitigated by making healthy lifestyle choices and by supplementation.
