Dr Oz: Stress Hormone Cortisol Number One Reason For Belly Fat
Most people would think the number one cause of belly fat has something to do with diet, but Dr. Oz said the number one factor on your belly fat is actually stress. Studies have shown most diets fail because the person is unable to keep control of the stress hormone cortisol.
Dr. Shawn Talbott said it is impossible to ask people to avoid stress but said there is a way to trick the body so the cortisol levels come down naturally, meaning you will be less hungry.
Dr Oz: Relora Supplement Reduces Morning Stress, Belly Fat
Many of us feel stress from the minute we wake up in the morning. We are often rushing to get ready for work, to pack a lunch, to get the kids on the school bus, to beat the traffic jam and to just make it to work on time, all within the span of a few hours in the morning, which means this is the time your cortisol levels are the highest.
Dr. Talbott said it is important to lower cortisol levels as quickly as possible because if the levels stay too high we will constantly be getting the message to eat more and store the fat in our bellies. He suggested taking Relora, a supplement that can help lower your stress and cut down on belly fat. Get the facts about Relora below.

Dr. Talbott suggested drinking tart cherry juice before bed to lower the stress levels.
