Stress Hormones, Survival, Fasting, and Fat Loss with Dr. Carrie Jones [Smart Simple Nutrition Made Simple Podcast Episode #62]
In this podcast Carrie will discuss how stressors impact our natural hormonal rhythms and why our present day lifestyles can set us up for hormonal sabotage, cause us to store body fat, decrease energy, and a plethora of other symptoms.
“Everyone vilifies cortisol, but actually cortisol helps your blood sugar, is anti-inflammatory to a point and it actually helps to trigger your own T cells that have been tagged as autoimmune to be killed. So if your cortisol rhythm is dysfunctional you can actually increase your risk for autoimmunity or you can increase the autoimmune symptoms you already have.” – Dr. Carrie Jones
Additionally, Ben Brown and Carrie Jones will talk about their personal experience with implementing a Fasting Mimicking Diet as they were both coincidentally are on day 5 (the last day, thank goodness!!) at the time of this recording.
