So, one small hormonal imbalance can have you over the edge, no, that does not mean you can reach for the potato chips or that you don’t need to exercise, but maybe you could have your hormone levels check or try this!
What is Hormone Resetting?
Hormones are something that ever multicellular organism produces to orchestrate the way your mind and body behaves. They are an essential part of how you get energized, store fat, combat stress, and maintain muscle. Dr. Natasha Turner released a book called “The Supercharged Hormone Diet.” The basis is that you need to reset your hormones to get your body back on track.
“If you don’t add hormonal balance to that formula you will diet and exercise until you are blue in the face, you will not be able to lose weight or keep it off,” says Dr. Turner
How do you do it?
Start off with a detox! There, of course, is a lot to address when It comes to your hormones sleep, exercise, meal frequency, snacking, etc. So, the first thing you should put focus on is flushing the toxins out of your system. Having a healthy digestive system is important for your body, when your digestive tract becomes irritated it sets the balance of your hormones way off, encouraging random food cravings.
So first things first, detox your body. A healthy way to detox would be to start off the morning with a glass of warm water with honey and lemon, then after an hour have a mono fruit juice or one of the many detox juice recipes we have on our site. Then, have lunch as normally, and another juice. Before each juice or meal have a glass of warm water with lemon. It is important that even during a detox that you do not deprive yourself of food, this does much more harm than good. Nourish your body, and it will nourish you.
Avoid foods that have a high glycemic index, avoid foods like carbs, sugar, soda, baked goods, pasta, and anything processed. Nourish your body with fruits and vegetables, oatmeal, beans, nuts, etc. Drink at least eight glasses of water each day.
Targeting Specific areas on the body
It is impossible to spot reduce fat, no matter what anyone says it will not happen, what you can do is help it along though.
Too much cortisol could be a large reason why you accumulate fat in the abdomen area. Try consuming holy basil, spinach, citrus, beans, and barley.
Back fat is linked to high insulin levels. Foods containing conjugated linoleic acid such as milk, yogurt, and cheese will help. As well as whole grains and green Vegetables.
This could be due to high levels of estrogen. Cruciferous vegetable such as broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage will be very effective. Chia seeds, flax, and sesame seeds will help to reduce estrogen in the blood stream, and pomegranates and red grapes will help as well.
According to the doctor eating twice as much fat and protein as you do carbs will help to reset your hormones, and it will also keep you feeling fuller for a longer period. This will reduce the number of food cravings and binges that you have each day.
