Things like stress, dieting, and lack of sleep can lead to massive increases in cortisol levels, which can make you gain belly fat at a much faster rate than normal.
Enter: HSD (11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase-1)
This is an enzyme that "turns on" cortisol within your fat cells causing you to store fat at an alarming rate.
When this enzyme is activated your body will simply NOT release fat, even if you're in a calorie deficit.
In other words, if you gain fat when you're under stress, it means you have very high HSD levels making it almost impossible for you to lose body fat.
But what about folks like me that lose weight when we're stressed out?
It's usually muscle loss.
In fact, I recently lost 10 pounds of scale weight, while gaining fat around my belly and lower back when going through a stressful business decision.
A clear indication that I definitely lost some quality muscle.
Stressful situations in life happen to ALL of us.
Some people lose weight… some people gain it.
But either way it's a losing battle if you don't get a grip on your HSD levels.
The good news is I've already gained back 4 "good" pounds just by getting my nutrition plan in line, which can reduce fat-storing HSD if you know what you're doing.
Recent research into compounds known as flavenoids proves HSD can be blocked naturally just by making the right food choices.
In fact, there is one food in particular that contains a unique substance known as ploymethoxylated flavenoids (or PMFs), which reduces HSD activity 500% more than other flavenoids.
Nutritionist and researcher Janet Hradil has discovered a 3 Phase Hormonal Solution that specifically addresses getting control of HSD by using certain foods that contain substances like PMFs.
It's called Trouble Spot Nutrition because it's designed to eliminate hormone related fat storage, while using a diet that contains specific foods that melt away "trouble spot" fat.

If you're getting a bit older and you're finding it harder and harder to lose weight… getting control of your HSD, and your hormones, should be one of your top priorities.
Trouble Spot Nutrition is specifically designed to achieve this goal.
