Emotional Eating and Cortisol Levels
Do you often emotionally eat when you are stressed, tired, bored or watching television? Do you find that no matter how much you sleep you are always tired? You may be struggling with a cortisol imbalance that is fueled by emotional eating. Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by your adrenal gland, and emotional eating, dieting, starvation, not eating enough, eating too much, overexercising, inflammation, poor digestion and much more can increase or decrease your cortisol production. This can leave you feeling puffy, bloated, tired, brain fogged, craving sweets or salty foods, having increased or decreased appetite levels, low sex drive, moodiness and more. I often find there is a connection to the emotional eating/diet cycle and cortisol imbalances. Watch here to learn more.
