•chronic stress

•increase steroid and Insulin production

•increase appetite

•portions too large

•store belly fat which produces inflammatory hormones

•liver becomes  inflamed and filled with fat

•secondary to overeating, we are now Insulin Resistant

•Pancreas makes more Insulin, and eventually we get Diabetes

•very hungry

•eat because of  too much of the wrong hormones

•now you are eating because you are stressed

•return to chronic stress
