Is hormonal imbalance the reason behind your kilos?

Have you ever wondered why stubborn extra kilos seem to only hold on to a certain area of your body? While the typical weight-loss programmes recommend lowering calorie intake and exercising more, there’s actually a lot more to it than just maintaining a calorie deficit!

Hormones greatly influence your weight and fat distribution, and you can accumulate fat despite dieting – to be honest, dieting could even worsen your hormonal profile.

This is a more common issue than you might think. It's because we live in a world that is not the hormones’ best friend. Our bodies suffer daily – with pesticides, polluted air, and various chemicals in products. We can’t really run away from that. If you're having a tough time shedding those extra kilos, it's time for you to take a look at your hormones. Follow the article to learn how!

Estrogen hormone levels

How hormones affect fat distribution

Hormonal imbalances can be recognised pretty easily. You see, hormones are chemical messengers that are released by glands and travel through the bloodstream to other parts of the body. They regulate many different functions in the body, including digestion, metabolism, mood, and fat cells.

Some hormones favour belly fat, while others promote fat accumulation on the hips & thighs. Depending on your body shape, you can determine the cause behind your weight-loss struggles. We suggest you address hormonal imbalances if you want to get the most out of your diet and exercise regimen.


Pear-shaped body = estrogen dominance

If your body fat is accumulating predominantly on your hips, thighs, and buttocks, you might be dealing with estrogen dominance. Estrogen is known as the female hormone and is in charge of reproductive health, metabolism, and mood. But it also prefers to store the fat cells in the hip and thigh area.

That is why when your estrogen levels are higher than normal, you may experience more obvious weight gain in that area, or you might have problems losing that fat.

What can you do?

In order to slim down the pear-shaped body, you’ll need more than just a lifestyle change, as your body has a hard time flushing out excess estrogen. That’s why we recommend Estrogen Slimming Support, the only triple estrogen detox that supports the elimination of excess estrogen by:

  • strengthening the liver;
  • supporting the gut; and
  • balancing estrogen levels.


Apple-shaped body

Are you finding it impossible to lose fat in your midsection? There are two hormones that regulate this type of fat accumulation, so it’s important you figure out which category you fit in. This should be easy, as one is related to your (peri)menopausal stage.

= Menopause

During menopause – but even way before that in the perimenopausal stage – your estrogen levels start to decline. Lower estrogen levels shift the fat distribution from the hips and thighs to the abdomen area, giving you that apple-shaped body.

You may also experience a decrease in lean body mass, furthering your weight gain and inability to lose that weight.

What can you do?

This is a natural course in a woman’s life, but you can still enjoy a comfortable and confident (peri)menopausal stage. MenoPause Slimming Support provides relief during the estrogen drop, while:

  • promoting weight loss for an apple-shaped body;
  • supporting weight control; and
  • boosting digestion.

= Cortisol

However, if you’re not going through (peri)menopause, the reason behind that tummy could be stress. When you’re under physical or mental pressure, cortisol – the stress hormone – is released. To prepare your body for a response to a stressful situation, cortisol favours the immediate use of glucose instead of storing it, which causes high blood sugar.

Prolonged stress can lead to continuously elevated cortisol and blood sugar levels, resulting in a “stress belly,” something you won’t be able to get rid of until you, well... relax.

What can you do?

Lose the belly fat faster by managing your stress and elevated blood sugar levels with Cortisol & Glucose Slimming Support and its 4-in-1 action that:

  • boosts the body’s ability to use stored fat;
  • kick-starts weight loss;
  • promotes emotional stability and sleep; and
  • improves overall well-being.

Rectangle body shape = thyroid imbalance

Dry skin and lack of energy and focus, accompanied by fat accumulation all over the body, are sure signs of a sluggish thyroid function. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that produces thyroid hormones.

Thyroid hormones are in charge of the body’s metabolic rate, so when your thyroid isn’t producing enough of them, your metabolism slows down, and you start accumulating fat everywhere, giving you the rectangle body shape!

What can you do?

Balance your thyroid hormones and boost your metabolism! We suggest Thyroid Slimming Support, the innovative formula that addresses symptoms of a sluggish thyroid by:

  • balancing thyroid hormones & their production;
  • promoting weight loss for a rectangle body shape;
  • strengthening hair & skin health; and
  • boosting energy & improving concentration.
