Fat Loss Handbrake: Stress

Cortisol is a hormone released by the adrenal glands in response to a stress trigger. Its job is to protect the body and its vital organs from attack, and does so by holding fat and fluid around these areas, especially the midsection (aka Visceral Fat).

This is a great evolutionary defence mechanism if you were being chased by a Saber Tooth Tiger, but in this day and age, our stress triggers are usually work deadlines, family pressures, financial strain etc that are far less immediately life threatening. Problem is, the body cannot tell the difference.

While we can’t always control the stressors around us, we can regulate our responses to those triggers. Daily stress management, adequate quality sleep and reducing inflammation are all very effective ways we can control cortisol and reduce excessive exposure.


Switch Nutrition ADRENAL SWITCH is a fantastic tool for this. It contains a powerful blend of adaptogenic herbs, nutrients and amino acids that help the body restore balance from stress, reduce cortisol, fight inflammation, improve sleep and help you recover faster from training.
