The hormone in your body that actually craves fatty foods

July 19th, 2004

By Claudia Lopez : eCureMe Staff Reporter

In the ever growing world of dietary supplements, the market is generally dominated by pills that help to burn the fat you already have. Most of these work in your metabolism to help speed it up - the theory being that if you speed up your metabolism, you will burn your stored fat and those extra little friends that have been hanging around since your valentine box of chocolates will start falling off.


But why do we need such things? Can’t we control ourselves? Why can’t we control our urges to eat unreal amounts of food when we are depressed or stressed out? Like everythng is, it’s all chemical.

There is a hormone inside your body called Cortisol that actually makes you crave fatty foods when you get stressed out. The higher level of stress you have, the higher the level of Cortisol is activated in your body, and the greater need there is to consume fatty foods.

For dieters and weight conscious people, the Cortisol hormones primarily store fat in your stomach and in your backside.

While supplements such as Corti Slim are coming out promising to suppress your Cortisol levels, there is a much easier way to go about decreasing your weight gain. Ease up o the stress. 40 percent of Americans are obese and overweight because they are so stressed out.

Does a Big Mac really make you smile? After you eat a bag of Dorritos, do you feel better? Well, you might. The reason for this is that the cortisol hormone has been satisfied and the fat stored in your body has covered up the stress, but not removed it.

In fact, many of the supplements that you may be taking now for weight loss may be causing you, in the end, the gain even more weight. The speed causes you not to eat as much, and without that extra food with your accelerated pace, your blood sugar lowers and your ability to deal with stress decreases.

So how do you break this cycle? Everything is prevention. You need to gain some form of self control with your eating. Taking supplements helps, but if you want to cure your addictions to things your body knows is bad for you, things such as meditation,, exercise, Yoga and drinking plenty of water and juices throughout these hot months should keep you from reaching for the fat.

If you know what the problem is, there might be a way for you to cure it!

Good Luck.
