The Drs: Cinnamon Chocolate Milk Recipe Reduces Belly Fat
Christy is a mother of five-year-old triplets who is constantly juggling emails and phone calls, and says she is stressed from morning to night. She travels for work, and when she’s at home the kids are clamoring for attention. She’ll fall asleep if she sits on the couch too long.
She’s self-conscious about her body, which she feels has gotten out of control. She asked if stress is what is keeping her from managing her belly.
The Doctors: Body Fat Saliva Test
Pharmacist Dr. Mark Gonzales met with Christy to see what role stress is playing in her physiology. The Med Specialties Saliva Test Kit is an at-home test you can use to evaluate your Cortisol levels.
Dr. Gonzales said weight gain and inability to lose weight are some of the symptoms of high Cortisol levels. You do multiple test samples throughout the day to gauge your results.
Dr. Mark Gonzales: Cortisol Saliva Test
Christy and Dr. Gonzales were in the audience to talk about this test. Christy said she is stressed right now thinking about the work emails and phone messages that will be waiting for her when she’s done at the show.
Dr. Gonzales said the test just takes four saliva samples, and Christy’s tests showed her levels were highest in the evening, after work. It was 50% higher than what’s considered normal, and that high Cortisol causes retention of Visceral Fat, leading to cravings for sugar and caffeine.
