Lose Weight Without Exercise Guide:
If you’re ready to finally reach your goal of successful, long-term weight loss then you need to identify what has contributed to your weight gain in the first place….
Today we are going to focus on the first of the four types and that is . . . understanding hormonal imbalances and how they can contribute to weight gain.
There are two main types of hormonal imbalances that contribute to weight gain and hinder weight loss for both men and women.
• Oestrogen dominance (excessive oestrogen – AKA Hormonal Imbalances)
• Low thyroid function or hypothyroidism
Let’s look at each individually . . .
Type #1 = Oestrogen Dominance (Hormonal Imbalances)
Excessive oestrogen levels can be caused by: an imbalance between oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone – this is usually caused by …
• Synthetic hormone treatment such as the contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy (HRT),
• An excessive presence of fat cells especially around the tummy (fat cells release oestrogen)
• The consumption of or exposure to chemicals that mimic oestrogen in the body (otherwise known as xenoestrogens such as plastics, pesticides etc.).
If you are suffering from oestrogen dominance you may also notice some of these following hormone imbalance symptoms:
Hormone Imbalance Symptoms:
• heart palpitations
• food cravings
• fluid retention
• Digestive problems
• foggy thinking
• migraines and
• irregular menses.
Unfortunately with oestrogen imbalance, it will be difficult for you to lose weight.
High amounts of oestrogen contribute to insulin resistance and also contribute to the development of adipose tissue (fat around your tummy).
This is where it’s important to have specialised tests completed to see where your Progesterone, Testosterone and your 3 Oestrogen levels are . . . Did you know there are 3 different types of Oestrogens.
The best way to have them tested is by urine.
Type #2 = Hypothyroidism And Weight Loss
Hypothyroidism or a sluggish thyroid function can also be caused by stress, a history of certain viral infections, an iodine deficiency and or the consumption of or exposure to certain chemicals that are known to block thyroid function (such as bromide which is found in various soft drinks and imported flour products etc.).
Low thyroid function or hypothyroidism symptoms also include fatigue, cold hands and feet, dry skin, poor digestion, constipation and depression.
If you have hypothyroidism or low thyroid function, – your metabolic rate will be lowered.
Hypothyroidism Signs And Symptoms
This means your cells don’t require as much energy as someone with a normal thyroid function, unfortunately any excess food you consume will be stored as fat.
If you have a hormonal imbalance and want to know how to burn fat naturally while also addressing the underlying cause of your weight gain, you can follow these tips to get started NOW:
Hypothyroidism and Weight Loss
Weight loss tips for men and women with Hormonal Imbalances including Oestrogen Dominance and or Hypothyroidism:
• Reduce stress levels by taking up gentle exercise such as walking or yoga, learn how to meditate and how to include mindfulness techniques into your daily life. Also there are some great herbs that can help. Ask Domenic at your next consultation.
• Speak to your healthcare practitioner about natural alternatives to the contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy.
• Aim for visceral fat loss (Fat around the abdomen) by reducing your intake of processed foods and increasing your intake of foods for fat loss such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds and organic meats.
• Minimise your exposure to oestrogenic chemicals by purchasing organic produce, organic meats, avoiding the use of plastic water bottles and re-heating your food in glass rather than plastic containers.
• Speak to your healthcare practitioner about an iodine supplement should you be experiencing iodine deficiency. There’s a simple test you can do to work out if you may have an iodine deficiency.
• Minimise your exposure to chemicals that block thyroid function by avoiding the consumption of all soft-drinks, imported dried goods such as flours, grains etc and tap water. Instead increase your intake of filtered pure water (fluoride free; fluoride blocks thyroid function) and organic local whole grains and other dried goods. Also avoid using toothpastes that contain fluoride and avoid using products that contain chlorine (bleach) to clean your home. Instead choose natural toothpastes that are free from fluoride and use natural products such as vinegar and essential oils to clean your home.
• Eat coconut oil for fat loss; coconut oil helps to increase thyroid function, reduce insulin resistance and increase fat burning. You can use coconut oil to cook with, include it in your healthy baking and add it to smoothies.
