Have you ever wondered why you can suddenly store stubborn fat around the belly, even when eating well and exercising?
Today I will tell you!
It is a story of a sometimes difficult relationship between insulin and the adrenal hormone cortisol and what happens when we put these systems under pressure, even if you aren’t aware that you are doing it!
Insulin, Cortisol & Weight Gain
Eating too much carbohydrates causes surges of insulin, depletes your precious glands, increases fat accumulation, and can lead to muscle wastage.
It often coincides with sleep issues, waking tired, struggling with motivation and binge eating.
Ready to get off that particular treadmill?
I’ll admit, there are many complexities to weight loss, and what works for one person won’t work for another. That’s why we treat all our patients as unique and individual, each with their own set of symptoms and underlaying hormonal imbalances.
I hope that you have learned (if you didn’t already know) that if you have a low sugar diet, but still are dealing with chronic stress, then weight loss becomes an issue.
We can help!
