4 Signs that a Hormonal Imbalance Is Keeping You From Losing Weight
Weight loss is not only dependent on the common lifestyle changes, like diets and exercise routines, but can also be highly dependent on biological factors.?A hormonal imbalance is one biological factor that can stop anyone from losing weight and looking and feeling their best.
Could a hormonal imbalance be keeping you from losing weight??Here are 4 key indicators to consider:
Weight Increases During Hormonal Flare Ups
Have you noticed an increase in weight during hormonal flare ups, such as puberty, pregnancy, or around menopause? If so, then it’s possible that a hormonal imbalance is keeping you from being able to lose the weight and you could continue to see increases in weight during future hormonal flare ups, regardless of diet or exercise.
Do you notice that your body doesn’t burn food quite as fast as other people? Your family and friends can eat whatever they want but if you consume a couple extra calories then you immediately gain weight. If this sounds like you then you could be dealing with a slow metabolism caused by a hormonal imbalance.
Decreased Energy and/or Sex Drive
Are you gaining weight but also noticing that you have a decreased sex drive and/or a significant decrease in energy? If so, then your weight gains could be associated with hormonal imbalances that are also impacting other important areas of your life. Getting your hormones under control can improve other areas of your life, not just your weight.
No Progress or Results from Workouts
Ever wonder why no matter how hard you work out you just can’t get the results you think you should??If you’re exercising regularly but not seeing positive results, like lost inches in your waist and increased strength and endurance, then there’s a good chance that a hormonal imbalance is keeping you from seeing the progress.
