Hormones and weight loss

Did you know that your hormones can stop you from losing weight?

There are nine key hormones that can impact your weight loss efforts and research is producing evidence that the mixture of a hectic lifestyle and the food that we have become used to eating is knocking those hormones out of balance. 

Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers and instigate changes within the body.  They control everything from the rate at which you burn calories, whether the body starts to breakdown fat or muscle tissue, right through to how you feel at any given moment in time.

Different foods impact how and when hormones are released and how they work with each other.  For example, if you’ve eaten a lot of carbohydrates and sugars then this will have an effect on your insulin levels.  If you’ve had a lot of stress in your life, then your stress hormone cortisol is affected. 

Whatever the trigger, be it your eating habits, your hectic lifestyle or lack of exercise, what happens is your body becomes much better at storing fat than burning it.  The good news is that the right type of food and the right type of exercise can affect the ratios of hormones in your body and trigger the response necessary to create a fat burning environment.

If you’re struggling to lose weight or you’re struggling to lose weight from certain parts of your body such as the back of your arms, your tummy or maybe your hips or your bottom you’ve come to the right place.  Over the coming weeks I’ll be sharing a mixture of eating, exercise and lifestyle tips to help you transform your body shape.

Until next time.
