Although I love eating Paleo and the mental and physical improvements I have experienced, there is one that I am having trouble with. I am naturally a pear shape, and have always had a flat stomach. I experienced severe bloating on SAD and giving up grains/gluten has helped this problem immensely but I now have belly fat that I have never had before. I have lost from all other parts of my body except for this area, when it is usually the other way around! I have suspected an adrenal fatigue/cortisol issue, as I over worked and over exercised this summer, but have been cutting way back (only weight training 2x a week now) and getting lots of good sleep.
Has anyone had success in getting rid of their cortisol belly? How long did it take? For someone who has never carried any weight in my midsection its very frustrating!
(I'M female, my BMI is 21)
