    Would anyone know the answer to this.

    I've long tried to get around the excessive fluffy fat which accumulates around my waistline when trying to lose weight via exercise. Particularly cardio. I'm not sure how to lose weight when I have a hypercortisol condition.

    I understand how to eat but it's the exercise I'm interested in now. What are the best exercises for someone with hypercortisol due to the initial stages of CFS if I want to lose weight.

    I do not believe that exercise has any significant effect on weight, and if you have ME I would not recommend exercise at all.

    I know that you say you understand how to eat, but it was cutting out gluten and reducing grains and sugar that made my excess fat and weight melt away without effort. Nothing else had worked.

    I'm not sure if you're on the right forum??

    You say you're in the "initial stages", which makes me think you're talking about something else entirely (I never knew my "initial stages" were that - never expected to be sick so long). How long have you been ill?

    How do you know you have hypercortisol? Have you had a 24 hour saliva cortisol test done? I have learned never to assume anything btw.

    The best exercise for hypercortisolism is lots of sleep.
