Stress can make you Fat!

Fat in the abdominal area functions differently than fat elsewhere in the body as it contains a greater blood supply as well as more cellular receptors for cortisol (a stress hormone). Our cortisol levels rise and fall throughout the day, but when you are under chronic stress it stays elevated,  Cortisol isn’t metabolized well. With alot of stress and high levels of cortisol more fat is dumped in the abdominal area. Fat cells in this region are very sensitive to cortisol, and they tend to grow in size when they hook up with this hormone.
