Carbs Unveiled: A Key Player in Taming Stress Hormones

November 19, 20231 min read

Mastering the Dance: How Carbs Influence Your Stress Hormones

Carbohydrates, often misunderstood, hold a secret power—they can influence the levels of cortisol, your body's stress conductor. Unraveling this connection is vital for maintaining a balanced cortisol slope and safeguarding against the pitfalls of chronic stress.

Picture this: a diet too low in carbs prompts your body to kick cortisol production into overdrive. Why? To convert precious muscle tissue into blood sugar. The result? An unhealthy cortisol slope, with elevated levels lingering into the evening, setting the stage for weight gain, fatigue, mood swings, and the looming threat of disorders like diabetes.

Timing is everything, and dinner emerges as the opportune moment to introduce healthy, complex carbs. This strategic move aligns with the goal of fostering the lowest cortisol levels in the evening, paving the way for a restful night.
