5 Tips on deactivating your fat storing hormones to burn fat and lose weight
Did you know why despite dieting you may keep gaining weight? The key to losing weight is to know how to deactivate your fat storing hormones and to counter all the factors contributing to your gaining weight. Just as your body consists of hormones that burn fat; it also contains hormones that contribute to storage of fat. And if you have to lose weight effectively, then the fat storing hormones should be deactivated.
Here are five tips to help you deactivate you fat storing hormones which will definitely help you lose weight.
1 Fat Burning Hormones versus Fat Storing Hormones
Starving or not eating doesn’t really do anything for you, instead you may gain more weight.This is a common problem with many overweight persons, who feel that despite of their low intake of calories, they still gain weight. Why?
When you stop consuming calories, your fat burning hormones go into slow drive. Visceral fat especially collected around your abdominal area is the most stubborn and can only be burnt through intelligent fat burning strategies initiated by correct hormone activation or deactivation. The correct time of a good cardio is important too. The three main hormones contributing to fat storage are cortisol, estrogen and insulin resistance.
2 Reduce Cortisol, the Stress Producing Hormone
Nutrition is full of contradictions. While coffee in some studies is associated to fat loss, it is one of the main ingredients of cortisol the hormone that increases stress. As weird as it may sound, stress in some people may trigger appetite cravings. These cravings are directly linked to increased cortisol levels, simply because you may not be eating.
The only way to reduce cortisol levels is to practice de-stressing methods such as exercise and mediation. Also ensure a healthy and wholesome diet consisting of lean meat, fatty fish and nuts full of omega 3, fruits and vegetables to provide you with a good amount of fiber. Get a good dose of vitamin c and ensure you have a good night’s sleep.
