You’ve tried it all. New exercises, new diet fads, juicing – you name it! But you still can’t seem to get rid of that stubborn belly fat. Losing weight can be stressful when you’re working hard and not seeing your desired results. However, what you need to understand is that losing stubborn fat is different from just losing weight normally.

It’s not what you eat and how much you exercise that matters. Losing stubborn weight involves balancing your hormones, and understanding which hormones are involved. It’s about creating the correct hormonal chemistry for fat burning and healthy cell metabolism to occur. Losing stubborn weight can be much easier than you think. You just need to understand how hormones work before you can see results.

Getting to Know Your Hormones

Understanding your hormones and they work is a huge part of weight loss success. How can you make them work for you? All you need to do is balance them! With a little help, your hormones will turn your body into an amazing, fat-burning machine.

There are three hormones that are crucial to getting rid of stubborn weight: ghrelin, leptin and cortisol. Understanding these three hormones will help you lose your stubborn weight and keep it off.

  • Ghrelin – This is known as the hunger hormone. If you think skipping meals can help you lose weight, you are highly mistaken. When you skip a meal, your ghrelin levels rise and you feel so hungry that you end up binge-eating your next meal with unhealthy foods. This can actually cause you to gain more weight instead of losing it.
  • Leptin – This hormone signals your brain when to stop eating. However, leptin decreases as you age, which prevents you from receiving the proper signals to stop eating when you should.
  • Cortisol – Known as the stress hormone, cortisol makes your body hold on to stubborn fat around your mid-section when you’re stressed, making it harder for you to lose stubborn fat. It also signals cravings of sweet and salty foods during stressful situations, making you eat unhealthier foods.

Balancing these three hormones is the key to getting rid of your stubborn weight. You will lose belly fat, feel less hungry, eliminate cravings, feel energized and significantly improve your health. However, imbalanced hormones are not the only things preventing you from losing weight.

Inflammation

According to recent studies, continuous weight gain is the result of a cycle of inflammation. High levels of fat and imbalanced hormones put your body in a state of stress, especially if you are going through menopause. This causes your immune system to kick into high gear and increase inflammation. The increase in inflammation and stress causes your body to store more fat, continuing the cycle and making it harder to lose weight. When a more favorable chemistry is created, weight loss and fat burning occurs. Reducing inflammation in your body will help you get rid of your stubborn fat, especially if you are going through menopause and having hormonal fluctuations.
