Cortisol, Stress and Muffins

And by muffins we mean muffin tops. As in that extra tummy that spills over jeans that are too tight. Not something any of us want, but we deal. So why is it that belly fat is the last to go? We exercise and our legs look great and our arms tone up, but our tummies still stay the same. Stress. 

When we are stressed, our bodies produce three hormones, one of which is cortisol. This hormone is responsible for getting your body back to normal after it has experienced stress. The problem is when we experience chronic stress, which our high-paced lifestyles tend to throw at us, these cortisol levels go up, but never go back down.

When your cortisol levels are high, your body hoards the fats you eat. Not only that, it takes fat from healthier areas, like your hip and butt and move it to your tummy. And of course, your tummy has more cortisol receptors, Hello Muffin Top! This ab flab then leads to more cortisol production because it has higher concentrations of an enzyme that converts inactive cortisone to active cortisol. 

The more belly fat you have the more belly fat you will have.

That is a scary thought.

So what to do? De-stress your routine. I know what you’re thinking. You don’t have time to de-stress. But studies have shown that 10 minutes of meditation a day can reduce your cortisol levels by up to 60% when done consistently.


Not to mention adding reflexology into the mix. Through the process of relaxation through reflexology, the body is more capable of dealing with stress placed on it by daily living. Reflexology releases feel-good hormones that help to improve blood and lymph circulation, increase nerve supply to the cells and release toxins from the body’s tissues. Most importantly reflexology supports self-healing which is the only-long term cure for belly fat. Bodies need the ability to take on stress, and get rid of it just as easily.

I am lucky I found your blog, I am on diet and exercise right now and I notice that there is an improvement over my arms and legs but in my tummy there is no improvement. I have no idea that stress can make my tummy bigger and bigger. Now I’m reading your blog, I will try to de-stress myself. I will try your suggestion of 10 mins meditation a day. I am hoping that it will work on me.
