Cortisol only increases body fat when it’s “out of time.”
Chronic stress is the villain.
For millions of years, the glucocorticoid rhythm has been subservient to light — powered by LEO, a Light-Entrained Oscillator, namely,our Sun.
Then Mr. Edison invented Indoor Light, and the glucocorticoid rhythm was highjacked by FEO, a Food-Entrained Oscillator.
The LEO is calibrated to Heart Time (11:00 am-1:00 pm) and the “clear light of noon.”
Light achieves maximum transparency between the hours of 11:30 am and noon.
The FEO is calibrated to Liver Time (1:00-3:00 am) and the “witching hour” (referring to the long hours of the ancient Chaldean clock).
Not one, but 2, cortical “peaks” occur in the early morning.
The first cortical “peak” is powered by glucose from the liver.
It’s designed to get us out of bed for breakfast and “break the glucose fast.”
The second cortical “peak” happens 30 to 45 minutes later — the CAR, aka Cortical Awakening Response.
Response to what? Your daily grind. Your daily hassles. With your boss. With your spouse. With your bills. With the IRS. With your mom. With your dad. With your son. With your daughter.
