Although losing weight is in no way an easy process, there are some hormones which make us gain weight that can be “turned off”. Shutting off these hormones is possible, and we’re going to show you how.
Here are 6 ways to “turn off” your weight gain hormones:
Consuming grains often can slow down your thyroid hormone production, which almost always results in weigh gain. Check your thyroid hormone levels more often and try to reduce the consumption of grains.
Reduce stress and drink less coffee
One or two cups of coffee per day is fine, but anything more than that can raise the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) and make you gain weight faster. Constant stress can do the same, so try to limit your caffeine consumption and learn how to relax in order to lose weight.
Eliminate soy products from your diet
Soy products can block the estrogen production in the body and throw your hormones off balance, so make sure not to eat them often.
Less dairy products
According to some experts, animal milk is supposed to raise young animals, but not humans. This is why the world is experiencing accelerated development of teenagers which creates numerous problems.
Sugar is basically nothing more than empty calories. Stop consuming it altogether to turn off the weight gain hormones and start losing weight.
Consume more protein
Increase your protein intake to start building muscle and make your body burn more fat in the process.
