Perché ingrassiamo se siamo stressati?

Facciamo un passo indietro nell’evoluzione.

Siamo ominidi, stiamo cacciando da un’ora una belva feroce, siamo stanchi, digiuni e sotto stress. 
Le ghiandole surrenali producono cortisolo: grazie a questo ormone, muscoli e grasso vengono convertiti in zucchero, pronto all’uso, da riversare nel sangue.
Quando finisce la battaglia, i livelli di cortisolo scendono. Fine.

Al giorno d’oggi le nostre battaglie emotive possono durare all’infinito senza ucciderci, ma rendendoci la vita impossibile. Ora come allora, il cortisolo degrada muscoli e grasso e ne fa glucosio da riversare nel sangue. Solo che non c’è alcun nemico da affrontare fisicamente (anche se la tentazione è tanta🤬) e non siamo affatto digiuni, anzi. Quindi ricaptiamo lo zucchero dal sangue e lo ripotiamo indietro. Nel muscolo? Magari! Lo riportiamo nelle cellule adipose per lo più nei distretti superiori, addome, tronco, collo.

Quindi che fare? La risposta richiederebbe più di due righe, ma in linea di massima: ridurre al minimo gli zuccheri semplici, dormire il giusto, fare attività fisica…e (a meno che non si stia combattendo contro un orso) prendere la vita con più filosofia!
