is stress causing you to gain weight?

I was recently asked to be a Wellness expert for Amanda de Cadenet’s The Conversation. Amanda began with a TV program in the U.S based on interviews with interesting and high profile women. After the first season, this has developed into a successful blog and resource for women.
