High Cortisol Hormonal Balance
- 0 Comment
If you’re struggling with hard-to-lose belly fat, you may have high cortisol.
This is the most common hormonal imbalance and also the one that wreaks the most havoc on your health.
Because cortisol is the alpha hormone it holds a lot of sway in how well your other main hormones – thyroid and estrogen in women, thyroid and testosterone in men – function.
High cortisol is the result of chronic stress, an absolute epidemic in our culture.
High cortisol is associated with hard-to-lose belly fat, sugar cravings, and lousy sleep.
Those may sound a little familiar, as may the feeling of wanting to throttle the next person who tells you about the great diet they just discovered.
