Discovering these 5 Hormonal Blocks changed my life…
Why am I going to put on weight? And why is it so difficult to take it away?
You should know that hormonal imbalances influence weight loss and weight gain and may be part of the problem or maybe even the entire problem if you put weight on quickly and have a hard time getting it off.
In reality, such hormonal imbalances can make it difficult to lose weight right away!
With the aim of taking off some extra weight, several individuals try different diets and workout programs. Sometimes when results are not forthcoming, it can be stressful, which can end with giving up all together.
What many individuals do not know is that there can be many underlying health conditions that inhibit attempts at weight loss.
Not only that, but in addition to unhealthy diets and lack of exercise, these same problems may actually be the cause of weight gain in the first place.
It is very likely that hormone imbalances and other deficiencies may be the cause. We also get phone calls from patients who are asking for support because no matter what they do, the pounds continue packing on. Sadly, several of them have asked their doctor for support, only to be told that they only need to eat less and exercise more, period. Not only does this contribute to feelings of guilt, but also helplessness and can be very demoralizing.
Common Hormonal Imbalances
Insulin resistance is a disease in which millions of Americans are affected and many don’t even know they have it. Insulin is a pancreas-made hormone and it is activated while we feed. Its main role is to serve as a key to unlocking the cells so that our food can bring in glucose (blood sugar) and give us energy. Insulin also controls levels of sugar in the blood.
What happens is that the cells become immune to insulin themselves and can’t use it like they should. This causes blood sugar levels to remain elevated in the bloodstream (up to 7 times higher than normal), impacting the metabolism because it prevents the ability of the body to metabolize fats.
Higher levels of insulin signal that more fat is stored in the body, especially around the abdominal region. This specific fat (also called visceral fat) is detrimental to health and can cause disease of the fatty liver and elevated levels of inflammation. This can contribute to many serious illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
High triglycerides, a form of cholesterol (and one of the causes of insulin resistance), contribute greatly to cardiovascular diseases and can increase the risk of death for a person over time. In fact, belly fat often releases higher triglyceride levels into the system, so it becomes a double
The two main causes of insulin resistance, along with not having enough exercise, are consuming a diet high in refined foods and sugars. Not only does a bad diet contribute to obesity, but it also causes an imbalance in the gut microbiome’s health.
Insulin resistance, also referred to as Metabolic Syndrome, can also lead to Syndrome X. This happens when there is high blood pressure, high levels of glucose, elevated cholesterol, and excess abdominal fat in a person. These conditions are a recipe for illness and, if not resolved at their root cause, will almost definitely lead to a life of poor health and early death.
Another of the common hormonal imbalances that influence weight loss is thyroid hormones. In the United States, one in five women and one in ten men reportedly have an underactive thyroid gland, known as Hypothyroidism. Weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, depression, anxiety, high blood pressure and more are symptoms.
People also eat well and exercise and do all the right things for their health, but if the thyroid is poorly functioning, it causes the whole metabolism to be sluggish, making it possible for weight gain, often in short periods of time. Hypothyroidism makes it much more difficult, even with good diet and exercise, to lose weight
