Cortisol is a hormone essential for many bodily functions. During times of physical, emotional or mental stress however, the hormone can be secreted excessively, and its normal release patterns disturbed. This in turn can lead to appetite stimulation and weight gain.
The cortisol can also cause the new weight to be deposited in the belly or abdominal region which can be detrimental to health and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Have you ever been asked if you are pregnant and you are not pregnant?
