New year’s resolutions that are specific accomplish one of two things: They target the motive behind what you’re trying to achieve, and (more importantly) allow for a perfectly tailored plan to make resolutions become a reality. To achieve good health is by far one of the most universal goals for Americans today, with a specific emphasis on weight loss in particular.
FIGURE OUT THE CAUSE BEHIND YOUR WEIGHT GAIN.
As many are well aware, weight loss journeys aren’t always easy to embark on. Factors contributing to one’s current overweight or obese status can include your inactivity, poor diet, exposed environment, disease and drug use – but what many don’t realize, though, is how much hormonal imbalance can factor in when trying to shed those unwanted pounds, which affects both men and women.
A few key symptoms categorize hormonal imbalance, like hot flashes, depression and fatigue. Since a large part of our health is determined by what stage of life we are in, women experiencing menopause and perimenopause are also at a higher risk. Aside from these, weight gain is the most obvious – and most experienced – symptom. When you do have a hormonal imbalance, it can still seem impossible to lose weight, even with the proper exercise routine and diet.
The good news? There is a solution to this problem, which by no means reflects upon you as a person (blame science, instead!). Recent studies show that balancing specific metabolic hormones and reducing overall inflammation in the body are critical to losing weight in a long-term stretch. But weight loss isn’t the only reason to consider treatment for hormonal imbalances – it also impacts your risk for all chronic disease processes, including diabetes, thyroid disease and heart disease.
IF YOUR WEIGHT GAIN IS HORMONE RELATED…
- 1. CONSULT A MEDICAL WEIGHT-LOSS CENTER THAT SPECIALIZES IN HORMONAL IMBALANCES.
Be picky! With so many weight-loss tricks, tips, fads, and diets that plague the internet, it’s easy to fall for one that may not be beneficial, trustworthy or even helpful – which is why you should seek help from a certified weight-loss center that focuses specifically on hormone treatments. These specialists understand the science behind weight gain brought on by hormonal imbalances. They don’t just focus on calorie counting or a strict diet – instead, they create the “correct” hormonal chemistry for fat burning and healthy cell metabolism to happen.
- 2. PICK A WEIGHT-LOSS PLAN THAT WORKS FOR YOU.
Once you’ve met with your weight-loss consultant, it’s time for both of you to figure out a hormonal-centered weight loss program that achieves the best results, makes you feel comfortable and works with your makeup. A metabolic hormone balancing plan involves balancing the three weight-loss hormones: Ghrelin (the hunger hormone), leptin (the appetite suppresser), and cortisol (the stress hormone that makes your body hold onto fat). Getting a handle on these three components results in a quick and permanent weight loss, making you feel less hungry and more satisfied, all while limiting cravings.
NY Health & Wellness offers an array of programs that primarily focus on hormones, backed up by a knowledgeable and experienced staff that conduct scientifically sound methods. Their motto is simple and captures their stance: “Weight loss is not a math problem (calorie intake), but a chemistry problem (hormone balancing)”. Two methods in particular that have resulted in tons of positive and successful results, and catered to specific needs of clients are: The 2-week detox plan, which is designed to eliminate inflammation; and the 6-week “hormone balancing food plan” which resets the hormones of women in menopause that make it impossible to lose weight.
