Toxins and Lack of Nutrients Cause Weight Gain – Raymond Francis
You must first understand why you would get weight gain with adrenal fatigue and how it all works.
There is a condition of hypercortisolism that is high cortisol. The adrenal gland has an outside and an inside. The outside makes cortisol, the stress hormone. There is a condition called Cushing’s syndrome. It is is high cortisol. Hypercortisolism means too much cortisol. It does not develop quickly. It is the same with adrenal fatigue, it starts at a certain point and it gradually gets worse and worse. Just like you have insulin resistance, pre-diabetic and then eventually a diabetic.
It all depends on what is happening with your insulin and cortisol hormones.
• Acute Stress (Short Term) – lowers insulin, which means you may lose weight.
• Chronic Stress (Long Term) – increases insulin, which converts glucose into fat. You would gain weight.
The body‘s response to long-term stress is to spike cortisol and adrenaline. Cortisol has the potential to increase insulin, which releases glucose from your liver and dumps that stored sugar into your bloodstream. Insulin has to take it into storage as fat. That is why some people gain weight.
