How Insulin and Cortisol Affect Your Body Composition






 
Talking about insulin and cortisol?or in simpler terms, carbs and stress?has finally become part of the conversation about body composition in earnest. We?ve begun to recognize that getting lean is not as simple as ?calories in versus calories out.?
 

 
Now, the argument has shifted to, ?Which matters more, calories or hormones"?
 
Is your biggest battle with calories or with hormones" Some will argue to their grave that a calorie is a calorie is a calorie, and that so long as you burn more than you eat, then you?ll lose weight. Others believe you can forget about calories, eat all of the bacon, skip the bread, and you’ll see big changes.
 
So which one truly matters more" It?s funny how this polarity of ideas always rules the Internet. Of course, the answer is never that black or white. Where changing your body composition is concerned, the right answer is that both calories and hormones matter. They both matter big time.
 
There is no denying a fundamental law: a calorie deficit needs to exist in order for your metabolism to dip into stored energy. But how you get there?how you create that deficit and how you play with your metabolism day after day to keep it from adapting and slowing down, not to mention manage cravings, energy, and appetite surges that can occur when you blindly cut calories?that has everything to do with hormones.
 
If you?ve spent any time reading about this stuff on the Internet, surely you?ve seen many an expert preach that one particular hormone is ?the one.? The Big Mama. The only one that matters. Just manage this one hormone, and you?re golden.
 

 
For a while that one hormone was insulin. Then it was leptin. More recently others have taken center stage. The thing is, they all matter. Everything from commonly known hormones like insulin and cortisol, down to immune-signaling molecules that you?ve probably never heard of, like Il-6 and Il-15, play a role in your body composition.
 
One thing is certain: you can?t be expected to know how to manipulate every metabolic messenger with every bite of food you take. In my office, we?re down to the nitty gritty, shifting immune systems, sprucing up more subtle hormone activity. However, for most of you reading this, simply having a better understanding of two of your main metabolic hormones?insulin and cortisol?will be tremendously helpful toward reaching your physique goals in a healthy way. Here?s why:
 

You have a lot of control over these two hormones. While you likely can?t move the needle a whole lot on your thyroid with food alone, or you may not understand the nuances of IL-6 enough to tweak that in your favor repeatedly, but you do know how to mediate your body?s stress levels. You know that by taking time to de-stress, by getting enough sleep, and by eating certain foods, you feel better and less stressed. That?s you managing your insulin and cortisol levels.
These hormones talk to you...
