Hormones & Belly Fat

Here is a nice article from Shape magazine about balancing some of the key hormones associated with abdominal fat accumulation (belly fat gain).

PDF scan from Jan/Feb 2016 issue = Shape Hormone Balance JanFeb2016

I’m quoted in the article about how stress, cortisol, sleep, and enzymes like HSD can all be related to whether you gain or lose belly fat.

If you’re interested, here are some other recent Shape articles to help you get a jump on “weight loss season” and a good start to 2016:
