Cortisol and Insulin are very different, yet both cause Weight Gain.

December 15, 2017

Cortisol and Insulin are very different, yet both cause Weight Gain.

Insulin is the root cause of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Even though cortisol has the same characteristics as insulin for weight gain they are both different.

The hormone cortisol is the flight to fight hormone, cortisol seems to always get a bad rap, everyone thinks it is horrible and terrible, it is true it will induce weight gain if it is with the wrong foods, let me repeat myself, cortisol will induce fat gain if with the wrong foods, I am sure that is a statement must of you have never heard before.

Cortisol will help your body burn fat, it also will help your body to store fat, so, how do we get to where we are using the benefits of cortisol to help burn fat, cortisol has a dual purpose.

It all depends on what you are eating and when you are eating, when we are fasting we are not eating, your cortisol during fasting is increasing the hormone sensitive Lipase, this hormone helps to burn more fat.

Think about this, we are in that flight or fight mode because we are fasting, so the body is kind of freaking out, that is ok. Because you are fasting there is no food involved, your body then triggers the fat burning hormone, yahoo.

Now if food was involved while you are stressed out, that is a whole different ball game. How many of you have gone through something like stress eating, how many of you gained weight because of stress eating, this is one reason the public is so over weight, all due to stress eating, do you think we live in a stressful environment.

When food is involved our body will store fat, but if food is not present when you are fasting, you don’t have food in your system, so, you are only using the positive benefits of cortisol, you are not using the negative part of the hormone cortisol.

I have said this over and over, the root cause of overweight or obesity is imbalance hormones, you learn how to control your fat storing hormones you then will control your body fat, if you do this using your natural bodies mechanisms it will be long term weight loss. All those supplements and meal replacement drinks, potions and lotions are only short term, if they work, most of them don’t, there are long term health effects going that route, think about this, if all those supplements worked then why are we still one of the fattest countries in the world.

I hope this makes sense, cortisol does have a purpose when it comes to fasting utilization and fat storage.

Conclusion- The essential point is fasting will help you utilize cortisol to your advantage, studies have shown that cortisol does increase when you are fasting about 50%, that was done by the University of Virginia.

The Hormone Cortisol has 2 purposes.

1.Cortisol increases your hormone Sensitive Lipase (when fasting fat burning)

2.Cortisol also increases your hormone Lipoprotein Lipase- when food is involved it stores fat.

The key is learning how to get the positive effects of cortisol to burn that unwanted belly fat or body fat, from what you have read so far, fasting is the way to control your hormones that store fat, what is crazy is this has been known for centuries.

If this makes sense msg us, we can point you in the right direction, the information is free no obligations, we have 2 protocols that we give to our clients that has been helping them lose that unwanted belly fat or body fat, and has made fasting much easier for them.
