Hormones for faster weight loss

Hormones for faster weight loss

Your hormones are incredibly important as they are involved in the transportation of messages from your organs to the cells of your body.

There are even some hormones that can help you achieve faster weight loss. Here are 2 examples:

Leptin for faster weight loss

Leptin is used by your body to communicate with your brain to tell it how much fat you are carrying and whether you are hungry or not.

This particular hormone is almost constantly being produced, although in varying amounts.

When your leptin levels are low you are more likely to feel hungry and will need feeding, which will cause your leptin levels to rise resulting in this need to feed stopping.

If you are overweight it may be due to low leptin levels, so you may want to try increasing them.

For a start you cannot increase your leptin levels by cutting the fat from your diet. Leptin is actually produced in your fat cells so the opposite will occur.

What you need to do is increase the amount of good fats you consume, while ridding your diet of those bad fats.

This means you should increase the amount of fish, avocados, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and nuts.

The following tips will help boost your leptin levels too:

  1. Get some sunlight
  2. Get plenty of sleep
  3. Get moving
  4. Take time to relax

Reduce cortisol for weight loss

Cortisol is known as the ‘stress hormone’ as it tends to increase production when you are stressed or are anxious about something.

Unfortunately when your cortisol levels are high you are more likely to feel hungry, which is why you need to get your stress levels under control.

Cortisol production can also be triggered by an increase in insulin, particularly when eating foods such as white bread, white pasta, white rice, white sugar or other refined grains, so it is perhaps best that you avoid such food types.

One final issue with cortisol production is that it tends to increase the amount of belly fat you carry, which is bad news as an increase in belly fat can lead to an increase in numerous health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and cancer.

Here are some tips to reduce the amount of cortisol you produce:

  1. Cut out caffeine
  2. Keep your blood sugar levels stable
  3. Exercise and stay fit
  4. Take time to relax
  5. Get plenty of sleep

Did you notice that both sets of tips involve similar ideas? This is because good health and weight loss can only be achieved through a healthy diet, regular exercise and plenty of rest.

If you can’t achieve these 3 simple tasks then you will never reach your weight loss goals.
