Does stress burn calories?

Thursday, April 11, 2013

If stress burns calories then I will be super thin by next week. My grandson, age 14, went missing on Tuesday at 3pm. I was have crazy out of my mind with worry. He was found this evening, Thursday about 8:30pm in another state. How did he get there? I don't know. Who shaved his head? I don't know. He said there was an explosion and his hair got burned so he did the cut himself. He only has a patch on the top of his head....he looks like a skin head. This is our autistic kid; too smart for his own good and dumb as a door knob when it comes to life. God was good and HIS angel really worked over time to keep him safe. So Does stress burn calories? I certainly hope so.

    Stress releases cortisol and that makes your body store fat. Sorry but no it does not burn fat. Glad that your grandson is safe and sound

  sorry for the cause of your stress, but research shows that stress actually increases weight by messing with your hormone balance. you don't necessarily eat more, but your body holds on tighter to the calories/pounds that you already have. glad your grandson is home safe.
