Your body doesn’t know when it’s experiencing stress from a relationship, a cut, a fight, a treadmill, or a calorie deficit. Stress is stress is stress, and your body will deal with it however it may. One of the side effects I experienced when I was stressed before my competition was a lack of sleep.
