Tips to Stop Being Fat, Sick, and Stressed

Stress can lead to overeating and weight gain, therefore, it is essential to find ways to relieve stress without overeating. Here are some suggestions:
Exercise: Physical exercise can be very effective in relieving stress. Even going out to get some fresh air and doing some light physical exercise, like walking to the shops, can help.
Identify the causes: Try to identify the underlying causes of your stress. Group the possible reasons for your stress into those with a practical solution, those that will get better anyway given time, and those you can’t do anything about. Try to let go of those in the second and third groups
2. Make Healthy Changes to Your Diet
Here are some suggestions:
