Hormones and Fat Loss: Delicious Healthy Foods To Lose Weight And Boost Your Fat Loss Hormones Naturally
Is it difficult for you to eat sufficient protein each day? I can totally sympathize.
Always eating enough protein and the right kinds of protein seems to require a lot of planning as well as extra money since it’s not going to be cheap. Have you seen how much organic grass fed chicken’s breasts cost?
This may be the what you’re looking for. It’s called Anabolic Cooking. You should know this if you’re working on toning your muscles.
Do you know that what most of what you eat determines how you look? Over 80% of the game is diet and nutrition, not fitness.
Take a glance at my favorite cook book (typically I eat most of my food raw but when I do cook, I go by this guide):
By understanding our biological functions, we can regulate our body size and shed fat more naturally. Some hormones are responsible for gaining and losing weight.
Thyroid, insulin, serotonin, cortisol and leptin are hormones that enable our bodies to use and store fat. Understanding how these hormones work can help you with your fat loss and offer permanent weight change.
If you have lots of extra fat on your body, it can cause additional problems such as diabetes, cancer, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and other tons of diseases. Not a good situation. Fat is where toxins store. Get rid of the fat, get rid of the poisons and toxins.
Everybody wants to lose weight in order to look good but we should do so in order to be healthier and live longer. Remember it’s not always about our sex appeal.
Hormones That Impact Fat Loss:
The insulin hormone regulates blood sugar. High ranges of insulin, often resulting from higher carbohydrate, minimal protein diets (low-fat diets) result in excessive weight gain.
As we become fatter, our cells turn out to be even more resistant to insulin, so our body produces more and we get fatter. It’s just an endless cycle.
The cortisol hormone helps with stress control. High insulin levels contribute to your cortisol secretion. Cortisol then drops your dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a hormone responsible for growing muscle mass.
Muscle mass contributes to fat loss as it increases fat burning and reduces insulin levels in the body.
This hormone is produced by our body fat and signals the your brain to let you know when to eat and when we are full. Some people don’t receive the signals sent by the leptin, making your produce more of this and making your resistant to leptin.The outcome is increased food cravings. If you want to control your leptin levels consider the hcg diet as well as ingesting colostrum.
Another hormone that signals us when we are satiated and no longer hungry. Low serotonin levels can result in lethargy, depression and even craving for sugars that can lead to even more obesity.
Eating foods low in proteins will decrease serotonin levels and could lead to other health issues.
Low production of thyroid hormones reduces our calorie consumption and limits us from gaining more muscle.
Food is Medicine: Healthy Foods To Lose Weight
In order to bring your hormones back to balance, you need to have a diet plan with proper nutrition, engage your body in strength training and, most importantly, have enough rest.The foods to include in your diet can be prepared into scrumptious meals rather easily.
Your diet should include high proteins, fats and complex carbohydrates. Refined sugars and junk foods are on the no-no list.
Protein, compared to fats and carbohydrates, has twice as much of a thermic effect because they are much harder to process.
Copious amounts of high quality water will help you to lose weight too as it helps to flush out and cleanse the body of toxins. Proteins (which are just amino acid chains) and high quality fats help you feel fuller much longer than carbs.
Examples of metabolism boosting proteins are wild fish and other seafoods. Wild fish is much more nutritious than farm raised fish because farm raised fish lack nutrients and the flesh is more contaminated with toxins and pollutions.
Lean meats coming from wild game and grass-fed beef. Avoid feedlot raised beef because they are frequently given growth hormones and antibiotics.
Try to avoid frying these eggs. Consider free range poultry more since they are healthier.
Healthy fats coming from organic grass fed animals, Omega 6 and Omega 3, should have a ratio of 2:1 or 3:1. Ideally, it should be 1:1 ratio, but it’s harder to achieve.Great fats are in the foods listed above.
The average North American consumes 500 grams of carbohydrates per day. Reducing your carb intake to 50 grams can greatly reduce your health risks. Remember excessive carbs contribute to cancer, heart diseases and just about every known health problem.
You will shed lots of fat, especially around your stomach and core.
Your body needs unprocessed carbs. Those with high fiber will assist and regulate your metabolism. All carbohydrates turn into sugar when processed. However, complex carbs have the essential vitamins, minerals and fiber you need.
How about this for starters: Grilled fillet of beef tenderloin or salmon steak with steamed broccoli and carrots on the side. A glass of red wine would certainly be good for you too.
