It was interesting to learn about cortisol, 'the stress hormone'. The last few years have been very stressful for me. It's shown up as a weight gain, mostly in my stomach area. It feels like I was unconscious through all of the stress I was going through. I was also drinking a lot. I managed to get the drinking under control but then I relied on the sugar. I'd quit eating sugar years ago but started again. The weight piled on. Thankfully, due to learning about cortisol and the fact I'm a 'mixed burner' I think I can get back on track. I've always been an emotional eater but with the information provided here, I am more aware and focused on getting my weight lessened.
