Meditation for weight loss? It sounds too easy, because it’s not about counting calories or working out to exhaustion. But there have been many research studies that have shown a connection between our stress hormones and weight gain. Cortisol, the stress hormone, directly affects weight gain and fat storage.
Jon Gabriel, creator of The Gabriel Method, used mind-body techniques to lose over 200 pounds. He calls it “inside out weight loss” and preaches that we need to reduce stress and balance our hormones to lose weight. Meditation has been shown in numerous studies to help people manage stress and emotional difficulties, which can help us conquer cravings. Gabriel calls this the ripple effect. Try to incorporate this guided meditation into your daily life to reduce stress, increase your mental wellness, and achieve your weight loss goals.
