How to Lower Cortisol Levels and Lose Weight
Sugar is your biggest cortisol enemy, and along with it is inflammation. Some people are just ignorant of the fact that our diet can contribute to inflammation.
Processed foods take your inflammation levels through the roof. And when you can’t balance hormones, and you can’t control your cravings, you are on the train to weight gain. Here are some foods that contribute to inflammation:
- High sugar and high glycemic foods like refined grain products, snacks, and sugary drinks
- Refined and trans fats
So, what can and should you do? To begin with, start consuming more micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and antioxidants. Increase your fiber intake, as fiber balances blood sugar. And consume healthy fats instead of trans fats. Here are some foods you should include in your diet: fatty fish, whole grains, dark leafy greens (spinach, kale), broccoli, beets, ginger, turmeric, nuts (walnuts, nuts, almonds, pecans, cashews, and pistachios), soy, tomatoes, onion, garlic, berries, peppers, and olive oil.
