As is known, when a person feels stressed, the person’s body will produce a lot of the hormone cortisol. The hormone cortisol or commonly referred to as the stress hormone can trigger high hunger even though the actual condition of the body does not require food intake.
High cortisol levels in the body will have an effect on fat accumulation which not only causes fat and distended stomach, but can be the cause of various diseases and adverse health problems.
