Stress less = Get leaner

If you haven’t heard of CORTISOL before count yourself lucky, because it’s one hectic son of a bitch. Acute rises in this stress hormone is beneficial; helps you get shit done! But if your parasympathetic nervous system doesn’t kick in enough to bring cortisol down to non ‘fight or flight’ levels, this chronic high exposure could have some. Not very nice health effects… Actually pretty much everything in your body if effected by chronic high cortisol. One of them being the effect of body fat.

A good I info sheet detailing some steps is below.

http://teeccino.com/building_optimal_health/148/Six-Tips-To-Reduce-The-Stress-Hormone,-Cortisol.html

A simple blood test will determine if your are high. I went to my GP and asked to have my cortisol tested. Mine are fucking of course, high.

I definitely don’t get much fat loss response from exercise, but I do notice if I back off on my exercise, I’m a little trimmer.

If you favour cardio like me, you’re better off breaking it up into smaller more frequent sessions. I was doing 8.5km a few times a week, now switching to 5km more often.

And simply, Of course, doing things that de-stress you, I’m lazy and also buzzed a lot of time so meditation is actually difficult for me bc it’s not ‘active’ so getting on your tube and doing a tai chi session or listening to theta brain wave meditation while in bed works for me.

I try to take down time when ever i can, because I feel like I need it, I burn out if I don’t.

Being o a high fruit, high raw diet makes me feel less stressed in my conscious mind. I try not to take supplements unless necessary, so next time I’m back at my herbalist I will see if there’s anything I could have temporarily to help lower cortisol.

Something to think about: The Earth is 4.6 billion years old. Let’s scale that to 46 years. We have been here for 4 hours. Our industrial revolution began 1 minute ago. In that time, we have destroyed more than 50% of the world’s forests.
This isn’t sustainable.

Rant. Am. I crazy.

Ok so lately Iv been going through some weird mood stuff. Just super anxiety and feeling a bit nuts.

I thought maybe my hormones were out of whack, it’s very slowly gotten worse and I’m here now thinking it’s got to be my horomes because I’m due right now for my period and I feel like I’m fucking insane!

Maybe I’m pregnant?

Maybe it’s a thyroid thing?
I was told when I was little I had borderline hypothyroidism by a gp. I had iodine treatment yonks ago from a natruopath who said I had suboptimal thyroid (a sluggish thyroid ) I had some weightloss without changing anything - about 6kgs which to me was like sunshine amazing bc nothing I did made a change to my weight. The weight has stayed off and I havnt gained any weight recently it’s just the mood. I don’t feel right.

I’ve found some helpful info on the net - I don’t really feel like doctors can help me - so putting into place the stuff which I will share later, and I’m also going to get a sensativity/allergy test done.

Wish me luck. I hope I sort this shit out before I just go bat shit crazy.

UPDATE: had a sensativity test done, though it was a very different test to what I thought it would be, bad on biofeedback from acupressure points in my hands she was able to tell me things that were happening inside my body :::I will post a pick of the print outs::: also getting a comprehensive blood test on my thyroid hormones tmro. Wish me luck :-)
