Adrenal formation of fat deposits: in the upper back and at the base of the back neck + on the face (and therefore it is round and red) + fat on the abdomen, hanging over the hips + relatively thin arms and legs.
The main reason?
Cortisol is one of the fat-forming hormones, and its main trigger is STRESS. Do not misunderstand me, cortisol is necessary and important: in healthy people it is elevated in the morning, and decreases in the evening. This is necessary so that seratonin can turn into melatonin, which promotes good sleep. However, cortisol imbalance hurts us!
High cortisol is usually expressed in elevated blood sugar and its imbalance. The ketogenic state, as we already know, on the contrary lowers insulin and sugar. But cortisol inhibits ketosis, so first of all you should work on the sources of chronic stress in your life.
Our favorite cortisol is the main cause and symptom of TAS.
It happens like this:
Excess stress - stress accumulation - a jump in cortisol, which is the most powerful non-dietary factor for unstable sugar - cortisol and insulin swing a sugar swing - a vicious circle, the adrenal glands are tired.
Solution: remove stress.
But ... we are all in permanent stress. That is, we all have adrenal glands "tired" (very generalized, but you caught the point).
What is the characteristic of TAS (Tired Adrenal Syndrome)? Chronic fatigue and depression. When you can not wake up and work without coffee, sugar and energy drinks and live a day on willpower.
