We all know that losing weight and keeping it off is difficult despite all the best efforts with diets and exercise.
What most don’t know is that an undetected hormone imbalance can be the hidden culprit, sabotaging your hard work to stay slim. Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin and where your body stores fat
Daily stress at home and work, poor diet, lack of proper exercise, medications and inadequate sleep can shift our hormones out of fat burning mode and into fat storing mode.
Weight gain caused by hormone imbalance can occur at any age and affects men and women equally. Signs and symptoms of your hormones being in fat storing mode are:
- Weight gain with belly fat
- Fluid Retention
- Sugar/food cravings
- Sluggish metabolism
- Cellulite on thighs & buttocks
- Fatigue and depression
- High body mass index (BMI)
- Indigestion, gas, and/or bloating
The good news is that a major part of our initial consultation and evaluation involves determining your hormone imbalance and placing you in the appropriate program. This will naturally switch on your fat burning hormones, jump-start your metabolism and get you losing weight for life.
