Adrenal Body Type, Cortisol & Belly Fat! Dr. Berg

by EzekielDiet.com
Posted on Jan 12, 2018

The Adrenal Body Type, in addition to BELLY FAT has several issues:

Why is my weight loss slow?

This is because your problem is DIFFERENT than other body types.

When your body becomes overwhelmed by stress, it starts to pump out excess cortisol; that belly fat hormone. Fat then builds up in the mid-section more than any other place. But the question is why? Interestingly, the body gets stuck into a stress mode and starts storing potential energy (fat) around the most vital organs, which happen to be around your mid-section – for survival purposes. Your body is going to make sure that it has enough food (stored fat fuel), around the liver, kidneys and heart to keep alive and doesn’t care about appearance, just survival.

To clarify, the REASON why regular dieting and exercise doesn’t work is because….

The problem is not really a weight problem!

It’s a hormone problem!

The adrenal hormone, called cortisol will drive fat to your belly despite what you eat. This is exactly why traditional ways of losing weight make your body type worse. Dieting is starving to the adrenal body type; too much of the wrong exercise is stress to the adrenal body type. Anything that adds STRESS makes it worse. This is why even those sit-ups never worked – because contracting your abdominal muscles does NOT lower cortisol. We need to re-focus your efforts on LOWERING CORTISOL!


The Three Stages of the Adrenal Body

The adrenal body type starts to see fat accumulating in your mid-section first, then the top of your upper back will develop a fat pad because your body is trying to compensate from the belly fat pulling you forward. Adrenal types start craving chocolate and salt and even carbs. If you can envision being chased by a lion and the body reactions that would occur over time; it will make sense. For example, digestion and reproduction slow causing constipation and a decreased libido. You might start feeling bloating or even acid reflux as this stems from a stress response. The heart even works harder – this is one of the reasons why sleep is poor – your body never rests. And your memory will suffer because when stress depletes oxygen to the brain.

By Stage 3, your muscles in your legs start to be used as fuel. Actually this fuel is turned into fat around your belly. So over time your legs get smaller and you eventually lose your butt. Where does all this protein fuel go? The fat goes to your belly of course. Your adrenals don’t care what you look like – it’s all about survival.
