454: Meditation, Weight Loss, Focus & Motivation

Feb 15, 2018

What does meditation have to do with weight loss? Anything?

I say with strong conviction: a lot!

First and foremost, meditation decreases cortisol levels. Chronically elevated cortisol levels impair decision making, increase hunger, increase cravings, impair sleep and blunt insulin responsiveness.

But: meditation takes time. It’s hard. Most people suck at it. Those are the most common objections I hear.

If you’ve ever had those frustrations or if you’ve wondered about meditation, you will want to hear this episode!
