Hyperactivity of the stress pathways can cause diseases. This research concludes that levels of adiposity and physical activity status does not influence physiological responsiveness to psychological stress. Nevertheless, stress pathway activity in response to food intake can be influenced by increased adiposity but not by increased levels of physical activity.
