Reduce Stress and Blast Away That Stubborn, Unwanted Belly Fat!!! 07/28/10

Do you find that it is extremely difficult to get rid of that belly fat?

Yep, fat around the mid section can be the toughest weight to lose even if you are doing a ton of cardio and literally refrain from every type of carbohydrate imaginable.

So we know that belly fat is next to impossible to lose, but maybe not.  Fat gain around the mid section is typically due to an overproduction of cortisol.

We all know that stress will wreak havoc on our bodies.  We know that short term – acute stress can lead to weight loss, but did you know that long term – chronic stress can lead to weight gain?

That’s right!!!

The stress hormone cortisol is released when our bodies are under stress.  This stress can be emotional, physical, or chemical and when this stress goes away – the cortisol levels should return to normal.  Too much or too little cortisol can have negative effects on weight loss.

High Cortisol

Chronic stress can lead to high levels of cortisol which affects weight in a variety of ways.

  • Increase cravings of sugars and carbohydrates
  • Increases insulin resistance
  • Decreases metabolism
  • Inadequate sleep
  • Belly Fat

High cortisol leads to a reduction in serotonin in the brain.  Serotonin is one of our “feel good” hormones and when this happens the body begins to crave carbohydrates, sugars, and alcohol.   Consuming these items in large quantities will make it impossible to loose weight.

High cortisol leads to insulin resistance; which means your body must produce more insulin to obtain the same results. More insulin – Means more weight gain.

Our thyroid gland produces thyroid hormones which are responsible for our metabolism.  When the thyroid gland is out of whack weight gain will occur.  High levels of cortisol produce a reduction in the amount of active thyroid that the body can make, slowing your metabolism.

Chronic stress will lead to a decrease in melatonin, a hormone in the brain that helps regulate sleep patterns.  Low levels of melatonin can result in sleep disturbances.  Inadequate rest will result in lack luster work outs or you skipping work outs in general.

Low Cortisol

Ever heard the term “burn out”?  Well, prolonged periods of chronic stress or huge amounts of acute stress can result in our body loosing the ability to produce standard amounts of cortisol.

Low levels of cortisol will result in extreme fatigue, sleep disturbances and overall EXHAUSTION.

The One Wellness Place Stress Balance & Energy supplement is designed to promote healthy cortisol levels which will provide you with necessary energy you need to workout.

Low Cortisol & High Cortisol

That’s right.  You can have both at the same time.  We can be under so much stress that our body’s are reacting like we have high amounts of cortisol, meaning our metabolism is slowing down, we are craving sugars, and all of the other symptoms of high cortisol; but we are burned out so we are actually NOT producing enough cortisol for daily activities leading to EXHAUSTION.
