    The Effect of Cortisol on your Gut – elevated cortisol levels preferentially direct body fat to your stomach, instead of your butt or your thighs. This “central obesity” is often correlated with obesity, high blood pressure, poor insulin levels, and can lead to heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, and kidney disease.
