Losing weight is everyone’s dream. But, many of us come through absurd obstacles which hinders your path and thus, you are not able to achieve what you want. Hormones play a major role in your weight. You might be doing everything right, but if hormones don’t help you, then your weight will not drop down. So, before digging deep into the topic of how to balance hormones to lose weight, we first need to find out, which hormones help us to lose weight and which all we need to tap on.
Do you know that if insulin is not being converted into energy and just being stored in your body, then it will contribute to fat content of your body? Thus, you should concentrate on such food products which will be utilized for energy, rather than such food products, which are only being stored in the body. Also, stress, thyroid and sex hormones also contribute equally in building fat.
Following given are some of the best ways, where you would know how to balance your hormones and it will help you to lose weight.
1. Consume more and more Protein
Your diet should be filled with more and more protein content. Because, protein is something which will help in energy usage in your body. Protein will be utilized by the body during the activities and thus, it is no longer stored in the body as a fat. A protein rich diet should contain legumes, green leafy vegetables and more and more green items in your diet.
2. Maximize Usage of HIIT
HIIT is High intensity interval training. This is a kind of training, where you need to exercise at an increased pace for 30-40 seconds and then, do some slow exercises for some time and then, again continue with your high intensity exercise. So, this is mostly switching between high intensity and low intensity exercise. High intensity exercise will prove to be extremely beneficial for burning the fat and regulating the overall hormonal balance in your body.
3. Ditch Alcohol
This is the perfect time to say goodbye to your alcohol cravings. Alcohol is the worst thing you can do to your body. Alcohol contains too much of sugar, which is the major reason for increased insulin content in your body. Also, alcohol makes the sugar to be retained in your body, which actually gets stored rather than being utilized by the body. So, withdraw alcohol and welcome a healthy you very soon.
4. Quit Smoking
Most of the people say that they smoke because, they are stressed. And, do you know that stress is a major effect caused by body fat. Because of stress, you are tempted to eat many addictive and adulterated food. This can make you satisfied and full, but will also increase the sugar and fat content in your body. Thus, give up on smoking as early as possible.
5. Eat Purslane
Purslane is an excellent source of protein, Omega 3 and melatonin in your body. This is something which will give you loads of energy and you can later conserve the energy and use it for the normal activities. The bonus is that, the energy derived from purslane does not get stored in your body and thus, will not contribute to the fat accumulation and later, increased weight.
6. Eliminate Gluten and Dairy
Gluten and dairy are some of the most intolerant food products. As per the research, gluten and dairy will contribute more and more fat and thus, weight gain in your body. They are also one of the major causes of intolerance and thus, results in stress, anxiety and all the other mental disorders.
7. Limit Fructose Intake
Fructose is the metabolically high sugar. This goes straight to your liver and never tells your brain that you are full. So, you keep on eating without realizing that you are overeating. Also, fructose triggers insulin and leptin resistance in your body.
8. Sleep Sleep
Sleep is one of the easiest and fastest ways to lose weight. Because more and more you sleep, your cortisol and insulin levels are in check. Thus, you might not realize that you are sleeping, but it is actually burning your fats.
9. Fast Fast
What you can also do is try keeping a mini fasting. I have friends who keep fasting for 1 day and that is perfect with their metabolism. It regulates your body activities and also, you will feel much more energized and active at the same time.
Constipation is the worst thing, if you trying to lose weight. This creates unnecessary blockage in your system. Thus, what you can do is that eat such food items, which will keep your system healthy and kicking.
