We tend to eat more sugar and get less sleep which can create multiple imbalances in our bodies and minds. Increased intake of processed sugars and sleep deprivation causes decreased focus, mood changes, increased musculoskeletal pain, digestive disruption and increased cortisol release, adding to belly fat.
