Stress Counteracts Exercise

Published måndag 11 december 2006 kl 11.33

New Swedish research indicates that long-term stress can reverse the positive effects of physical exercise and a good diet.

The doctoral dissertation by physician and nutritionist Stefan Branth of Uppsala University Hospital concludes that stress can cause disturbances in the metabolism similar to diabetes. Branth tells the newspaper “Uppsala Nya Tidning” that this is the first time that a controlled study has shown that long-term stress can lead to obesity, heightened blood sugar levels, and other negative consequences.

Part of the study included a group of sailboat racers.
