Hormone Imbalance and Healthy Weight Management

I often have clients come to me saying, “I’ve tried everything and I simply can’t lose weight! I eat fairly well and exercise regularly and still struggle to maintain a healthy weight”. Many diets for women simply do not work because they fail to address the root cause of weight gain.

Root Causes for weight loss resistance may include:

-Low functioning thyroid
Low Testosterone levels
Estrogen Dominance
Imbalanced levels of cortisol

Also, if you experience any of the following symptoms there may be issues directly related to Estrogen dominance.

-Fluid retention
-Depression
-Foggy Thinking
-Issues with short term memory
-Impaired blood sugar control
-Uterine Fibroids
-Uterine Cysts
-Fibrocystic breasts
-Extreme mood swings

Here are a few things you can do to get your hormones back in balance

Add B vitamins daily
-Increase your intake of healthy fats, especially omega 3 Fatty Accid
– Limit Alcohol and Coffee intake
-Increase Magnesium-rich foods such as dark leafy greens and dark chocolate
