Chronic stress and a high-fat, high-sugar diet decrease stimulation adrenaline receptors involved in burning fat and reducing appetite notes a recent paper.
The receptors are called beta-adrenergic receptors.Stress plus High-Fat, High-Sugar Diet Reduces Noradrenaline
Stress combined with a high-fat, high-sugar diet reduces noradrenaline found in body fat
Stress in mice fed a high-fat, high-sugar diet decreased the amount of noradrenaline found in body fat.
Adrenaline Levels Reduced
Adrenaline levels lower in mice fed a high-fructose diet
Adrenaline levels found in the blood were also found to be reduced in mice fed a high-fat, high-sugar diet.
