New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with What Determines If You Lose or Gain Weight With Stress?
have you ever wondered why some people lose weight when they experience stress yet other people gain weight when they go through stress we’re gonna talk about exactly why that is there’s two hormones involved one is cortisol and the other is insulin insulin is the hormone that converts glucose into fat it will store the excess glucose as fat okay cortisol is a stress hormone it’s activated by stress and what that does is it mobilizes glucose it will increase blood sugar okay it’ll break down the stored glucose and the liver and the muscles and it also converts protein and fat into glucose but here’s the big point acute stress or short-term stress inhibits insulin it lowers insulin so you have the situation we have all this glucose in the blood so the body can use it because you’re being chased by the tiger because if you had high insulin that would not be good for survival because it would lower your fuel that you needed to get away from the attacker or the lion that’s chasing you so short term acute stress it decreases insulin okay so that means that you would lose weight because insulin is not increased but long-term chronic stress it will increase insulin and this is why some people gain weight with core salt it all depends on what’s happening with insulin now if someone takes prednisone which is a synthetic version of cortisol they will definitely gain weight and I noticed too when people are chronically stressed mentally they will gain weight eventually because what happens they’re generating mobilizing so much glucose and they’re not using that glucose because it’s all a mental stress they’re not physically using up the glucose they will tend to get fat because the insulin starts to increase because the body also does not want a lot of sugar in the blood so it gets it out of there and it gets stored as fat and as a side note it’s always very important for those people who go through a lot of mental stress exercise on a regular basis not only is that good for fitness but it’s also good to keep the sugar burned off from the spike from the cortisol all right so I hope that answered the question and I will see you in the next video so if you want to get notified with all my content click the notification bell next to subscribed

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about what determines if you lose or gain weight with stress. It all depends on what is happening with insulin.
• Cortisol – a stress hormone that mobilizes glucose and it will increase blood sugar. It will break down the stored glucose in the liver and muscles and converts protein and fat into glucose.
Acute Stress (Short Term) – lowers insulin
Chronic Stress (Long Term) – increases insulin
• Insulin – This is the hormone that converts glucose into fat.
