Are hormonal imbalances part of the reason you're overweight ?
What is a Hormonal Imbalance ?
Hormones — such as estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin — are extremely important chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your overall health. Hormones are secreted by various glands and organs including your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and pancreas. Fluctuations in certain hormone levels may contribute to stubborn belly fat, weight gain, sluggishness, stress, a lagging libido, sugar cravings, and health problems.
Conventional treatments for hormonal imbalances usually include synthetic hormone replacement therapies, birth control pills, insulin injections, thyroid medications and more. Unfortunately, for the majority of people suffering from hormonal disorders, relying on these types of synthetic treatments for the rest of their lives and also causes a higher risk for serious side effects such as stroke, osteoporosis, anxiety, reproductive problems.
The good news is there are ways to balance your hormones naturally. A balanced diet, controlled portions, healthy lifestyle, regular exercise, managing stress and adequate sleep can do wonders in balancing these hormones and help in weight reduction.
Common Hormonal Problems that cause weight gain are :
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (

1. PCOS or Polycystic Ovaries syndrome Program
Do you suffer from irregular period and weight gain? Do you have sugar craving and your diet efforts are going in vain? You might suffer from PCOS but you don’t know: Between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 women of childbearing age have PCOS.
What is PCOS?
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or having many small cysts in the ovaries is a condition in which a woman's levels of the sex hormones estrogens and progesterone are out of balance. PCOS can affect a women's menstrual cycle, fertility, cardiac function, and body shape.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of PCOS typically start soon after a woman begins to menstruate for the first time. The type and severity of symptoms varies from person to person. The most common characteristic of PCOS is irregular menstrual periods.
The symptoms vary from woman to woman. Some of the symptoms of PCOS include:
- Infertility (not able to get pregnant) because of not ovulating
- Weight gain or obesity, usually with extra weight and fat around the waist or the abdomen
- Absent or irregular menstrual periods
- Excessive hair growth on the face, chest, stomach
- Acne, oily skin, thinning hair

Even a 10% loss of your body weight can restore a normal period and make your cycle more regular.
2. Thyroid Problem
The thyroid gland is a 2-inch butterfly-shaped organ located at the front of the neck. Though the thyroid is small, it is a major gland in the endocrine system and affects nearly every organ in the body. It regulates fat and carbohydrate metabolism, respiration, body temperature, brain development, cholesterol levels, the heart and nervous system, blood calcium levels, menstrual cycles, skin integrity.
The most common thyroid condition is hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. The lack of this hormone can slow down metabolism and cause fatigue, dry skin and hair, and difficulty in concentrating. Most people with hypothyroidism tend to experience abnormal weight gain and difficulty in losing weight until hormone levels stabilize.
How to lose weight with hypothyroidism?
The reduced levels of thyroid hormone hamper body’s ability to burn calories at a normal rate. This makes shedding excess weight difficult but NOT impossible. The most effective way of losing weight would be a combination of diet and exercise to regulate metabolism and burn calories.
