Factors to Consider
Prolonged or chronic stress increases the cortisol levels in the body. The “stress” hormone, when constantly activated, can lead to elevated blood sugar, insulin resistance, increased appetite, it reduces how your body burns fat and increases fat storage. With weight gain being most prominent around the abdomen.
Weight gain and the increase in fat is typically caused by a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle. But additional factors also influence how much fat we store and where we store it.
Changes in hormones, particularly for women, lead to an increase of fat around the mid-section. Pregnancy and Menopause are the big contributors to the increase in the fat layer around the waist.
As we age, our metabolism changes as we start to lose muscle mass and our body lays down more fat.
