Let’s talk about the real reason why you lost your butt and gained a belly: high cortisol. Excessive cortisol can break down the quadriceps and the gluteus maximus.

Cortisol is a stress hormone and a survival hormone. It tends to keep your sugar levels available for quick energy. It can also rob amino acids from the quadriceps and the gluteus maximus to convert to glucose. The sugar is then converted to fat with the help of insulin.

During this process, you can develop muscle atrophy. Muscle atrophy can look very similar to cellulite, but it’s really a loss of muscle fiber.

Top causes of high cortisol:
• Prednisone
• Menopause
• High stress
• A tumor
• Birth control pills
• Sarcopenia
• Inactivity
• Low back pain

What you can do:
1. Talk to your doctor about a natural alternative to prednisone (adaptogens and vitamin D)
2. Reduce your stress (do physical work or exercise and avoid overtraining)
3. Do the keto diet and intermittent fasting
4. Get plenty of key nutrients (potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B1)
5. Get plenty of sleep
6. Limit things that stimulate the adrenals and limit your exposure to EMF
