When the adrenals are under stress, this causes a rise in cortisol levels which in turn signals your body to hold on to its fat reserve. To put it simply, stress of the adrenals will normally equal weight gain and/or the inability to lose weight.
I’m just wondering about this part since I’m the opposite: I can’t stop losing weight. It’s not as bad as it was, but I have been plateauing, then dropping another half pound or pound, plateau, drop, etc., yet I know I have adrenal fatigue because I have all of the symptoms. I have also had thyroid levels on the lower end in the past, although I don’t have insurance so I haven’t tested them in a year and a half or so.
Can it also have an opposite effect? I’ve just been trying not to worry about it and have figured it will all work itself out eventually, but my skinny jeans that were so skinny that I bruised my freaking tailbone sitting in them for too long a few months ago are now too big for me…I can slip them off without even undoing the buttons :p
