Hormones and Weight Gain Are They Related?

Hormones play a critical role in our lives. These little guys are responsible for how we respond to food, stress, sleep, exercise, etc. They even play a role in our metabolism, if we feel hungry or full, our mood and how we use food for fuel or if it is stored as fat or burned for energy.

The phrase hormone imbalance has been thrown around a lot lately as it seems that as we age, women in particular, our hormones play a massive role in our body’s ability to stay lean and healthy.

So many things play into “hormonal imbalance” that it can be difficult for individuals to figure out precisely what is going on, leaving them feeling helpless in the aging process.

3 key sensations many medical providers track to determine how on or off track an individual’s hormone levels are can give you as the reader, insight. The 3 sensations are hunger, energy and cravings (HEC).

Each individual is unique!

If your 3 key sensations are off, you can’t shed unwanted pounds. This makes sense if you are experiencing intense cravings, substantial emotional swings and zapped energy; chances are you will have difficulty eating correctly and exercising adequately.

There are things you can do to regain balance and take back control of your body and weight.

Three tips:

  1. Record your energy, hunger and craving levels. These can give a person a ton of insight. You are craving food at night or a shot of mid-afternoon caffeine. By paying attention to these things, you can begin to tweak and refine your diet, exercise and sleep until you feel better and better all day long.
  2. If HEC is out of balance and your hunger and cravings are high and your energy is low, for example, many suggest this can be corrected by increasing your protein intake by 20-30 grams a day. Protein is an excellent macronutrient, stabilizes blood sugar, keeps you full, and helps you build lean muscle mass.
  3. Once your HEC is balanced, you can begin to experiment with carbohydrates. Unfortunately, they have gotten a really bad reputation, but the truth is we need carbohydrates. If we eat them in the right amounts, paired with the right food, and at the right time of day, carbohydrates can move us closer to the body we want.

Everyone is different; some individuals require more carbohydrates than others. As you experiment, you’ll have to pay attention to your HEC to easily course-correct it if necessary.

So what happens if your hormones are balanced and you still can’t shed the weight?

That is when working more intelligently, not harder, becomes a great option.

Each of us has a certain percentage of diet and exercise-resistant fat. It is different for each of us. That is why two individuals who are the same gender and eat and exercise the same can have very other bodies.

At Bodify, we talk to 100s of men and women during our complimentary consultations who struggle with shedding diet and exercise-resistant fat.

Hormonal shifts can leave you feeling like you have lost control over your body.

At Bodify we talk to thousands of individuals looking for a solution to diet and exercise-resistant fat. One of the biggest complaints we hear from aging women is that their body is shifting in ways they are not happy about, and it seems to be getting harder and harder to shed fat and have a desirable body.

Sometimes women even articulate that the old changes in eating and exercise used to give them results immediately. Now, even with weeks or months of diet and exercise changes, things are not changing.

How frustrating, we know!

Hormonal shifts can wreak havoc on a woman emotionally and alter her body in ways she never anticipated.

Women will alter their diets, and work out like crazy at the gym only to find their less-than-favorite body parts are getting fatter and fatter versus improving.

It’s overwhelming and frustrating. There comes a time when you can’t keep fighting what is going on, and you need an outside solution that works, is effective, safe, and is permanent.

It’s not your fault; you need to stop beating yourself up. Some things are out of your control, and it’s ok to look for a solution that will allow you to feel more confident in your skin.

At Bodify we believe that when you feel great in your skin, you impact the world in more meaningful ways.

We’ve all had those tough days where we feel less than beautiful, and we can all readily admit when that happens, it impacts how we treat others and ourselves.

So stop the madness and book a complimentary consultation at Bodify to see if CoolSculpting is your solution!

We have a sneaking suspicion if you are a woman with stubborn fat and going through less-than-fun hormonal shifts, it is the ideal solution that will allow you to regain confidence and get your body back!
