Belly fat is one of the things that has most of the generation sad about. It leaves them with self-esteem issues and sadly more often than not, it is not even their fault.
In most cases, belly fat is caused by hormonal changes, especially by adrenal hormones like cortisol.
Cortisol is one of the flight-or-fight hormone. In stressful situations, it causes the individual to react quick and fast and decisively. In normal situations however, it makes their bodies hoard fat and water, causing bloating and fluid retention.
Belly fat is one of the many things excess cortisol levels cause.
And we all hate that. But hey, it is an evolutionary price we pay for faster reflexes during times of stress.
But the key question all you gen-y kids must be asking is “all that is fine, but how do we get rid of it?”
Well we might not have a replacement as good as cortisol, but we do have something that might burn the fat it helps store. That ought to make you all #instaworthy.
