Are Your Hormones Making You Fat?
Do you catch yourself wondering if your hormones are to blame for putting on weight? Find yourself thinking things like ‘I’ve got a slow metabolism’, or ‘I’m just getting older’.
Are you fed up of feeling like you’re playing a losing game?
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Watch the video to find out how hormonal changes can be managed for weight loss, well-being and total health.
In a nutshell:
Hormones are responsible for a lot of different processes in our body INCLUDING fat storage. Truth: as women age, our hormones play a more pivotal role in fat loss and weight loss.
They’re also the annoying reason a middle-aged guy can bang out a routine at the gym, eat cleanish for a few weeks and look ripped, but you can’t shift the bulge. Who else has felt frustrated by a well-meaning partner when they suggest you eat less? They just DON’T GET IT!
But are hormones solely responsible for weight loss woes? It’s likely that something is wrong with your nutrition and your exercise. Maybe you’re not quite eating right for fat loss. Maybe your activity levels are just not quite at the right pitch.
The interesting thing is that food and exercise is linked to your hormonal health and vice versa.
So if you eat right and make positive lifestyle changes you can rebalance your hormones which leads to better results, whatever your goals are.
Essentially, weight loss does still come down to ‘calories in, calories out’, but we need to be more clever about it in our 30’s and 40’s and start to look at the bigger picture.
- If your oestrogen levels are raised, you’re going to find it harder to lose fat around the tummy, the hips, the back of your arms—the classic female trouble spots.
- If your insulin and cortisol levels are raised, you’re going to find it harder to lose fat around the belly as well.
Bottom line: our hormones can and DO play a role in body composition and total well-being.
So what can you do about it?
The good news is that you can tackle hormonal imbalances through lifestyle change, diet, and supplementation.
(The even better news is that it involves a lot of ME time and pampering. What’s not to love about that idea? Book me on a plane to a retreat right now!)
What we need to do is work out, first of all, where it’s going wrong and then create a roadmap to reverse it.
(I work with each of my clients individually, using a combination of assessments and clinical testing, if appropriate, to discover their unique hormonal and metabolic profile. This advanced preventative medicine strategy is something that enables women to finally take control of their health KNOWING exactly what they need to do to stay in great shape. No more guesswork!)
Managing metabolic and hormonal imbalances is usually done through:
- Nutrition and supplementation
- Cutting down on sugar
- Lifestyle Change, including suitable exercise, getting enough sleep and making sure we have time to chill out too
- Stress management (getting rid of stress in our lives? Give me a hell yes!)
