There is nothing damaging to your weight loss strives as your body’s continuous need to keep its fat accumulations. If you give your body any sign that nutrients or calories are insufficient, or if you consume high amounts of fat for your activity level, it will keep your fat.
But there is no need for worry because you can fight against your organism’s natural tendencies and trigger your fat burning hormones.
WHAT ARE FAT BURNING AND FAT STORING HORMONES?
Testosterone is the hormone which is charged for burning fat in our body. This is why the men have much lower body fat level than women.
Estrogen, insulin and cortisol are the fat storing hormones. It is well known that estrogen is the female sex hormone. It can cause storing fat in order to prepare your body for pregnancy. Cortisol is also named as stress hormone. If you are in flight or fight mode often, or hurrying up to catch deadlines, or having too many tasks, it is very possible that cortisol is causing your body to store extra fat.
Raising your testosterone levels and reducing your fat storing hormones is crucial for weight loss. Follow these three steps in order to achieve that.
STEP 1: BOOST TESTOSTERONE
Testosterone is the solution to extra estrogen. Yet, don’t use unnatural options such as testosterone injections or medications. You can stimulate your body to release testosterone naturally by doing weight workouts and implementing endurance training.
STEP 2: STAVE OFF INSULIN RESISTANCE
If your body becomes insulin resistant, you will notice that your fat accumulations are increased. Consuming high amounts of sugar will surely lead to insulin resistance. Today, the people are very likely to develop insulin resistance because of the high amounts of sugar in the food and drinks.
You should minimize the sugar intake through your diet as much as you can.
STEP 3: STOP EXCESS CORTISOL PRODUCTION
Disabling the development of excess cortisol is the last step in this process. This is the most important step and if you don’t implement it you will have a little layer of stomach fat even after completing the first 2 steps.
You should know that cortisol is released as a result of mental, physical and emotional stress. You should avoid all three sources of stress.
You can implement the relaxation methods like yoga, meditation and mindfulness. You will be able to manage stress while reducing the physical symptoms of stress that promote cortisol generation.
If your efforts to lose fat don’t give any results, it may not be your fault. It is a well known fact that the hormones have a crucial role in fat storing and burning. Follow these steps and you will help your body to burn more fat.
