Stress and anxiety will not allow you to lose weight for several reasons. One of them is that your body secrets cortisol when stressed which in fact will make you gain weight! Also, when stressed, people tend to eat "comfort" foods (sugary and fried foods) which again will make you gain weight. The best thing would be to treat your anxiety first and the weight loss will follow. A mental health specialist will be able to establish an accurate diagnosis and help you. Good luck!
Losing weight is a problem for a lot of people. To lose weight you need to restrict taking food, or to perform regular exercises or to take slimming medications.
If the first 2 methods fail, you may need to take a medication that decreases
appetite under a doctor's supervision.
