Body Types


Adrenal Body

Stress or trauma based weight gain in the belly due to stress. Adrenal gland sits on top of the kidney and is responsible for producing cortisol .Cortisol is known as the belly fat hormone. Adrenal glands adapt the body to stress. They adapt and change the body physiology to cope and manage stress. Responsible for fight or flight response. Our bodies are not equipped to handle sustained or prolonged stress. Physical, mental and emotional stress. Over time it burns the adrenals out. Pregnancies, surgeries and other trauma are prolonged stress on the body and  cause you to typically  store fat around the midsection, with skinny legs.
