How Stress Can Impact Weight Loss (Plus More Listener Questions!)

Blog Single


In today’s episode of the podcast, Michael and Adee answer some great questions from our listeners!

Questions include:

  • How do you deal with injury after being a professional athlete, including any shifts needed with nutrition? 
  • If the only time you can work out is very early in the morning, is it better to get up and head to the gym — or should you prioritize getting enough sleep? 
  • Can high levels of stress impact weight loss?

After hearing Michael and Adee’s responses to these questions, we know you will walk away with actionable tips you can use immediately. Enjoy!
