There is a common sequence that leads to weight gain once we eat sugar and become addicted to it.
- Sugar spikes Cortisol overnight while we are in bed
- If Cortisol spikes overnight- we don’t sleep well, which makes us crave sugary/high foods the next day to increase our energy
- Cortisol makes our body gain weight differently and it is often that “hard to lose” type of weight.
- Cortisol creates the Menopausal “muffin top” around the stomach area
The roller coaster and emotional eating around this cycle manifests itself in the following outcomes and realizations.
- That Muffin top you’re experiencing won’t go away without solving the hormonal issues. With Cortisol spiking overnight, it interrupts our sleep.
- Poor quality of sleep starts to become the norm (waking up multiple times) and causes you to become easily agitated the next day. You’re less able to manage stress and this results in feeling tired and dragged down by unwanted pounds.
- The quickest but NOT easiest solution is cutting out food. Food and beverages like pop, juice, alcohol, cakes, breads, chips, popcorn, and even too much fruit can be harmful. Cutting out sugars will naturally lower cortisol and likely release weight easier, but maybe not to the degree you want. So again, we advise taking this to the next step or hormonal treatment.
- The overall problem is that this eating has become a habit and has resulted from years of the bad eating cycles. Cutting out these foods can feel like deprivation, but really - it’s just detoxing your body from sugars. Eventually you will break the cycle and not crave sugars any longer.
