Skinny Without Willpower

Monday, January 3, 2011


Just read an interesting article on a study performed by dutch researchers on the effects of nagging on heart disease. It states that constantly nagging spouses can increase a persons risk for heart disease by a whopping 300%! Now that's more than any other risk factor I know of, like alcohol or smoking or saturated fats! 

This shouldn't come as a surprise because the person being bombarded with constant nagging would develop a chronic stress situation. And the relation of chronic stress to cortisol production in the body is very well understood. Although cortisol is an important hormone for the regulation of various metabolic functions in the body like blood sugar regulation, immune function and inflammatory response, a constant high level of the same would cause blood sugar imbalances, impair immune response, promote belly fat deposition and inflammation and eventually heart disease. So my suggestion to all the naggers and nagees (is that even a word?) is to take it easy and enjoy life! :)

  1. i've been drinking bird nest soup every night (i only get the homemade kind back at home). the only reason why i drink it is because it's supposed to be good for complexion.

    i’ve been taking the store-bought kind online (e.g. of famous branded only of course) which is directly mailed from Hong Kong. this would be at a more affordable price.
