Adrenal Body Type and Adrenal Hormones

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 08/31/2023

The Adrenal Body Type is characterized by individuals who tend to store excess weight in the abdominal area, often referred to as "apple-shaped." People with this body type may experience imbalances in adrenal hormones, such as cortisol, which can be influenced by stress and lifestyle factors.

Cortisol is a stress hormone that, when elevated for prolonged periods, may lead to increased abdominal fat deposition and difficulties in losing weight.


To better understand how your body responds to stress and its impact on weight management, it's essential to check which body type you have. Identifying your body type can provide valuable insights into your unique health needs and help you tailor your diet, exercise, and stress management strategies to support overall well-being.

Consulting with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian can also provide personalized guidance and recommendations based on your body type and health goals.
