3 Hormones That Are Hurting Your Weight Loss Efforts

You have always done everything the same… You have not changed ANYTHING! So why are you having such a hard time losing weight? In fact, you are gaining it! Have you ever thought about your hormones?

I hear this all the time from women that I personally work with. To be honest, when I turned 33, I started to experience it myself! But it doesn’t have to be that way. Just because you are getting older, doesn’t mean that you should expect weight gain.

Do you remember that old saying “If I even look at a piece a cake, I gain weight.” Or “Moment on the lips, lifetime on the hips.” But if you start now by making healthy choices, start to exercise and stay MOTIVATED to do it, you to can reverse the effects of hormones by correcting them!

Estrogen– The female hormone that gives us our body, our shapes and extra fat in places that men don’t have. If you get my drift. Men do you have estrogen but a much lower level.

However, you can have too much by estrogen in your body. Extra amounts of estrogen cause our fat cells to become larger. Therefore, gives us more junk in the trunk in those areas. (Think butt, thighs, tata’s, midsection).

If your estrogen levels are too high, it could be because your body is just very good at producing it. It could also come from the foods that we eat, the products that we use, and the air that we breathe. These toxins increase the estrogen in throws off your insulin levels which causes us to gain weight.

Eat a ton of vegetables, fiber, soy beans, wheat bran, fruit.

Check with your doctor and make sure you are getting adequate vitamins.

Insulin– When we are overweight or “skinny fat” insulin becomes off balance. Insulin is the energy from the foods that we ate that we actually did not burn up, so therefore it is stored as fat. Having this imbalance over time will break your glucose regulator. When that happens you will get blood sugar highs and lows.
