Weight Gain & Hormonal Imbalance Treatment

According to the National Institutes For Health (NIH), treatment for metabolic syndrome as it relates to hormones and weight gain is:

  • Reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes
  • Implement lifestyle changes
  • Start taking medicines to help reduce your blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, and blood sugar
  • Lose weight (lose between 7% and 10% of your current weight which means you will need to eliminate 500-1,000 calories per day)
  • Exercise for at least 30 minutes 5-7 times per week
  • Take daily low-dose aspirin in addition to other medications you need
  • Stop smoking

Hormones and weight gain

According to EndocrineWeb, hormone imbalance symptoms in women can be as high as 10% for the thyroid hormone deficiency called Hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism typically includes the following problems:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Lethargy
  • Dry skin
  • Cold intolerance
  • Voice change
  • Change in menses
  • Muscle cramps

It was mentioned previously that you may have to reduce your calorie intake by 500-1,000 calories per day.  That seems like a lot of calories, right?

Your biggest enemy is empty calories.  The good news is you can do something about that very easily.

Hormones and weight gain

You may not choose these food items, but you see how easy it is to wipe out a lot of calories with minimal effort (I hope).  Let’s face it, hormones and weight gain just plain suck.

If you think you have metabolic syndrome or hypothyroidism, it’s time to seek out hormonal imbalance treatment.  The risk for heart disease and Type Diabetes goes way up if you don’t take care of it now.

And of course, weight loss over 40 is a huge challenge too when you have imbalances in your hormones.  I’d love to send you my FREE Report, “Depressed About Losing Weight”.  Just type in your name and email address in the box below.

You can win the battle against hormones and weight gain, but don’t get discouraged and quit.
