Weight Loss Resistance
It’s that time of year where we dread pulling out our summer clothes. And even worse, we try to find a swim suit that we feel confident in and when we don’t, we just decide we won’t wear one anymore. Every part of our body feels like it’s on display from head to toe and there’s not a lot of room left for error. We promise ourselves that this is the year we will lose the weight for good. However for many Americans this struggle repeats itself year after year. You begin an exercise program and a diet only to see little or no results. If you have tried to lose weight only to be frustrated with your results then fat may in fact not be your fault. It may not be your diet, or exercise program or your ability to be compliant with those programs. It may have more to do with your physiology or more specifically speaking it may be your hormones.
For a long time it was believed that weight loss was a matter of calories in verses calories expended. If that was the case, then how do you explain the skinny person that eats the refrigerator apposed from the overweight person that exercises two hours a day, starves themselves and only loses a pound? You see, what determines weight gain or your ability to lose weight is your metabolism, and what controls your metabolism is your hormones. Fluctuations in your hormones can have a severe impact on your weight loss goals. There are hundreds of hormones in the body that perform various functions but 6 hormones are directly linked to fat burning and 3 are linked to fat storing.
What you do on a daily basis either activates fat storing or fat burning hormones, the types of foods you eat, the type of exercise you perform, and even the way you deal with stress. The key is to activate your fat burning hormones to work for you and to decrease the amount of times you activate your fat storing hormones. What we have also found is there are four main culprits that suppress fat burning hormones; adrenal fatigue, thyroid dysfunction, liver toxicity and blood sugar imbalances. These can be evaluated on blood or saliva tests and supported by supplementation to get your body working for you instead of against you during this weight loss season.
