Can stress really make you fat?


Stress affects people in many different ways but did you know that living in a chronic state of “fight or flight” can cause your waistline to expand?


You see, our stress response was designed perfectly for “back in the day” when our ancestors were coming head to head with hungry tigers! But these days most stresses neither require us to run or fight.


Any stressful situation will trigger the adrenal glands to pour out stress hormones; for short-term stress both adrenalin and cortisol will be secreted. If the stress continues then cortisol will remain elevated and it is this that can cause havoc with weight management.

One action of cortisol is to mobilise sugar stored in the liver so as to increase levels of circulating glucose – providing energy to run or fight. However, as most of this glucose will not be needed for sedentary, day-to- day stresses, it gets converted to fat and dumped, typically around your middle as fat – a distribution pattern known as central adiposity.


Tis is why many people can struggle to lose weight or even gain weight despite watching their calorie intake. Cortisol imbalances will also disrupt your sleep, making you more susceptible to feeling stressed and, bizarrely, can also lead to cravings for fattening foods, especially foods containing sugar, fat and salt – a real vicious cycle!


Cortisol is not just responsive to stress; sugar, alcohol, refined grains and processed foods can all raise levels too. Plus just one strong coffee can increase blood cortisol levels by 25% in an hour. So reducing foods that stimulate cortisol release is one of the best ways to manage stress hormone levels and beat the bulge.
