There are 3 primary fat storing hormones: insulin, cortisol and estrogen.
Insulin is produced in the pancreas and it is elevated with the high carbohydrate diets we eat.
Cortisol is produced in the adrenal gland in response to stress.
Ladies, it is not fair, but estrogen from the ovaries causes fat deposition.
Great news...there are 6 primary fat burning hormones: testosterone, thyroxine, growth hormone, glucagon, adrenaline, insulin-like growth factor.
