Did you know that excess weight around your waist is one of the signs that you’re undergoing a hormonal imbalance?
In addition to that, an extra belly fat in your abdomen may also indicate that you have high estrogen, low testosterone, low DHEA (a hormone of the adrenal glands), high insulin and high cortisol that sets a risky stage for aging, increasing the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
With numerous alarming health issues indicated above, the stubborn fat that sticks in the tummy must be rid off right away! To successfully do this, one should switch to living a healthy lifestyle by starting the day with a proper diet, exercise, sleep and of course, motivation.
But before anything else, you have to understand that one of the most important factors in order to obtain the ideal weight you’ve ever dreamed of is by to boosting your hormones and ensure that your hormones are in balance. Hormonal balance improves every aspect of your life. According to James Leigh Hunt:
“The groundwork of all happiness is health.”
Have you ever wondered how healthy hormones promote ideal weight? Here’s how:
Healthy Balance Hormones promote ideal weight by:
- Strengthening your balance appetite so you won’t be very thin.
- Helping you resist your cravings.
- Helping your metabolism work to keep your body at a healthy weight.
- Helping you feel more energetic without stress or anxiety.
- Helping your mood to be elevated.
- Helping you have a deep, restful, rejuvenating sleep every night.
- Helping you have a sharp mind.
To maintain a balance hormone and to gain an ideal weight, it is recommended that you do the following:
- Avoid vitamins and supplements. It will affect your hormonal balance.
- Eat miracle foods. (Those are vegetables and fruits).
- Don’t take antidepressants. It may affect your weight.
- Avoid uncooked vegetables from the Brassica family, known as goitrogens can cause hypothyroidism or an underproduction of the thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism can result in a number of symptoms including weight gain, loss of appetite, fatigue, premature, loss of memory, and depression.
- Consider good fats. There are also good fats that play an important role in the Hormonal Health Diet. These fats are unsaturated fats, and they help the body produce hormones such as cholecystokinin, leptin, and glucagon-like peptide-1.
As defined by many, “hormones are chemical messengers that regulate processes in our body. They are one factor in causing obesity. The hormones leptin and insulin, sex hormones and growth hormone influence our appetite, metabolism (the rate at which our body burns kilojoules for energy), and body fat distribution.”
That is how important maintaining healthy hormones is in overall wellness. With its several roles in your body, you need to keep it healthy so your body won’t develop serious illnesses.
Indeed, hormones play a key role in weight loss management. If you just take care of your body and make your hormones balance, you’ll become a healthy individual not worrying about belly fats. If you want to stay healthy, be mindful of your diet by eating nutritious and healthy foods suited to your metabolism, take proper exercise, have enough sleep, and acquire positive mindset.
Don’t wait that one of your hormones will be at risk due to your unhealthy lifestyle. Because once one of your hormones will be out of balance, it will affect all the others. As what Dr. Isaacs reminds us:
“All your hormones affect one another.”
