How Stress Makes You Fat1. Stressor Hypothalamus: responds to stsres by secreting corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH), which travels through the capillaries to the pituitary gland Pituitary gland: reacts to the CRH by releasing adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) Adrenal glands: respond to the ACTH by flooding the bloodstream with two stsres hormones, epinephrine (commonly called adrenaline) and cortisol2. Adrenaline Adrenaline switches on the body’s primordial fight-or-flight response.- Heart rate and pulse quicken to send extra blood to the muscles and organs.- Bronchial tubes dilate to accept extra oxygen to feed the brain and keep us alert.- Blood vessels constrict to stem bleeding in case of an injury.3. Cortisol Cortisol and adrenaline release fat and sugar (glucose) into the bloodstream for use as energy to deal with the stsresor in an emergency. That works perfectly during short-term stsres.4. Cortisol cortisol can also signal your cells to store as much fat as possible and inhibit the body from releasing fat to burn as energy. This occurs when cortisol levels remain high due to long term mental stsresors. Chronically elevated cortisol disrupts the body’s metabolic control system: Muscle breaks down, blood sugar rises, appetite increases, and you get fat! What’s worse, the fat tends to accumulate in the abdominal region and on the artery walls because visceral fat, which resides behind the abdominal muscles, has more cortisol receptors than does fat located just under the skin.
