Why Stress (Cortisol) Makes You Fat (Spikes Insulin)

Why Stress (Cortisol) Makes You Fat (Spikes Insulin)

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Why Stress (Cortisol) Makes You Fat (Spikes Insulin)?

so we’re going to talk about how stress
can actually make you fat okay now I’ve had some diabetics tests
or blood sugars when they go through stress and it definitely increases the
blood sugar so let’s talk about why so the body’s response to stress is it
spikes cortisol so it will also elevate adrenaline now cortisol another name for
it is glucocorticoid okay so it has something to do with glucose it has the
potential to significantly raise your blood sugars so here you are you’re on
the ketogenic diet you’re not eating any carbs you’re even fasting and your blood
glucose goes up because you’re stressed interesting also trauma will do it too I
remember when I was riding my bike and my chain locked up I went to over the
handlebars on the cement going 30 miles an hour next thing you know I’m laying
there in a state of shock and you know I was like craving sweets like crazy and
incredibly thirsty because my blood sugar you know went up and then insulin
kicked in it went right down I end up with like low blood sugar I was like
what’s happening here so cortisol will raise your blood
sugars significantly it will also release glucose from your liver okay so
we have this stored sugar in the liver it can dump the stored sugar when you’re
under stress so it ends up in your bloodstream right so then insulin has to
come in and take it and put it it’s into storage also it deaminates what does
that mean deaminates well there’s a little word in there emanate which has
to do with amino acids it basically takes apart amino acids it breaks down
protein and it turns it into glucose it’s called gluconeogenesis the creation
of new glucose from something else it could be from ketones it could be from
fat it could be from protein but with cortisol it will tend to break down your
proteins this is why women specifically after
menopause get atrophy they start losing their muscle mass when they get older
and it just turns into fat and then the blood glucose goes up so it’s not a good
situation also cortisol decreases insulin sensitivity and this is what
will lead to insulin resistance which will then cause the body to make more
insulin to make more fat to make a slower metabolism it’s a vicious cycle
also cortisol will drive the storage of fat to your midsection or to your
viscera around the organs in the midsection and the liver so this is why
people that have a lot of stress end up with midsection weight skinny legs
because the body is extracting and breaking their protein from the thigh
muscle the quadricep and the gluteal muscles in your butt and it turns that
into sugar and then to convert it to fat around your midsection so now you know
the mechanism between stress and belly fat if you have not seen my main video
on stress I put it right here check it out

1:19 How stress affects your health 

Today we’re going to talk about how stress can actually make you fat. I’ve had some diabetics test their blood sugars when they go through stress, and stress seems to elevate the blood sugars, but why? 

Your body’s response to stress is spiking cortisol. Cortisol has the potential to significantly raise your blood sugars. You could be on the keto diet and doing everything right, but your blood sugars are still going up. This could be because of stress or trauma. 

Stress side effects on weight loss:

• Cortisol can release glucose from your liver.
• It deaminates protein, which means it basically breaks down protein and turns it into glucose. 
• Cortisol can lower your insulin sensitivity, which can lead to inulin resistance. 
• Cortisol will drive the storage of fat to your midsection. This could be why people with a lot of stress end up with weight gain around their midsection.

Can you guess this huge hidden source of stress? 

Timestamps 
0:06 The hidden source stress
0:13 Sensationalism 
1:36 Do we really need to be informed of negativity 24/7? 
2:12 Try this experiment 

Today we’re going to talk about the number 1 source of stress that you may not think of. 

The #1 source of hidden stress is the news. TV, radio, the web, and magazines—all of these news outlets could be causing you stress. 

Sensationalism: The use of shocking stories at the expense of accuracy to provoke interest. 

Get the newspaper, and try to find some good news. Yes, we need to be informed. But do we really need to be informed of the negativity 24/7 everywhere we go? 

All of this negativity all of the time may not be good for your health. Consider trying this simple experiment on yourself. Limit the amount of bad news you expose yourself to. As you do this, refocus on some good news instead. I believe your health may actually improve.

Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into the cause-effect relationship of your body issues. It’s free and very enlightening.

Dr. Berg talks about a hidden stress secret that has to do with the environment a person is exposed to. Environment is a very important aspect for adrenals, sanity and stress levels (which can cause environmental stress). There are so many things in the environment that can trigger stress such as watching tv, internet, at work. People need to set up their own space and isolate these stress related factors in order to relax and have a stress relief. So the focus should be to think about future (not the past) and imagine beautiful things that can happen in life. Stress management techniques could involve writing, drawing, going for a walk, helping someone.

Dr. Berg discusses environmental stress. He gives you things to do to control your environment.
