Hormones play a major role in all bodily functions; they control appetite, your mood and can affect weight and how you gain or lose it. 

As you age, your hormone balance begins to change and your ability to lose weight can become impared drastically. 

Changing your lifestyle will help you maintain a better balance of hormones in your body which will translate into you being able to lose weight and keep it off. 

Try these 3 top tips for hormone support

  • Control your stress 

  • When you have a lot of stress in your life it causes cortisol levels to spike. When cortisol in your body increases so does your appetite and also shifts the body's metabolism to store fat instead of burning it. Leading to long term complications like obesity. 

  • Always get 7 hours of sleep a night 

  • Sleep influences the hormones that regulate your appetite ghrelin and leptin. When you aren't getting an adequate amount of sleep, these hormones are unable to do their job correctly and you have those unwanted cravings. Which as we all know, giving into these cravings makes you quickly gain weight.   

  • Always include protein and fats in your diet 

  • Eating protein and fats increases the production of the hormones that control your appetite and make you feel full. Which will translate to not only numbers on the scale, but also will help your general well being. No one likes feeling hungry all the time.
