5 Steps to Hormone Health and Weight Loss

weight lossOur hormone health affects our bodies in many ways, but one specific way is an increase in weight. Hormonally challenged women to gain weight around the middle between the armpits and the top of the thighs. Often their arms are average, their legs are standard, and from the neck up, they look great! Hormonally challenged men gain weight around their waist and often are on their way to developing breasts!

Estrogen is produced in our fat cells. Estrogen increases fat cells. As a result, more estrogen is produced and so on and so on.

Breaking the Estrogen cycle and then going on an excellent weight management program needs to occur.

Evaluate your hormones.

Find out the ratio of estrogen to progesterone presently in your body. If out of balance, we call that estrogen dominance, then you will likely have or currently be gaining weight around your middle.

Begin is an estrogen-lowering program.

That will include, of course, increasing your progesterone levels with bio-identical progesterone cream. But hormone balancing was never all about progesterone. Modulating and balancing estrogens, if found to be out of balance with progesterone, is equally essential to your weight loss program.

An estrogen-lowering program will include the following:

– Increase your fibre intake. That happens in two ways: 1. Eat as much as possible by choosing fruits, vegetables and whole grains as your high. Fibre carbohydrate choices, and then add a fibre supplement (Fiber Source 7) to consume 30 to 50 grams daily.
– Increase the indoles (cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower) in your diet. That also happens in two ways: Eat as much as possible and supplement with an indole-3-carbinol supplement (EllagiGuard). Target 3 servings a day.

– Increase the essential fatty acids (EFAs) in your diet. They are essential because the body does not make them. They help balance prostaglandin production in the body and thus help regulate estrogens.

– Increase your overall nutrition by taking extra vitamin C (Super C Crystals) and a concentrated fruit and vegetable supplement (Fruit and Vegetable Essence).

Eat 40/30/30.

Incorporate a new way of approaching meals purposing to eat Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats in a balanced way at each meal. When we eat balanced meals, our weight will normalize, our energy levels will increase, and our hormones will be in balance. More information is available in the book “The Formula” by J & G Daoust.

Get Moving.

Develop a great exercise program with the help of someone who knows what they are doing. Tailor a program, especially for you, that you can do and are willing to keep. Most of us must think about keeping our bodies moving and staying active for the rest of our lives. Couch potatoes rarely are healthy.
