Are Hormones Making You Fat?

Hormone is a complex system that controls every function that you perform on a daily basis.

Abdominal fat can be a result of hormone imbalance. The opposite is also true - stomach fat can cause hormone imbalance. However, "apple" people are at increased risk for heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

You can quickly determine whether you fall into the "apple" category category by taking the size of your waist and waist. Use these numbers to determine your health risks.

Step 1: Take your waist measurement on your belly button. Don't suck it - just relax your posture.

Step 2: Take a hip measurement at the widest part of your waist, usually at the bottom of the zipper on your jeans.

Step 3: Just look at your waist size. For women, 89 centimeters or 35 inches puts you in the higher risk category for heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. For men, this number is 102 centimeters or 40 inches.

Step 4: Calculate the waist-to-hip ratio (WHR). Divide your waist measurement with your hip measurement. True - the larger number becomes smaller. 0.9 or less for men, or 0.8 or less for women, lowers your risk of disease.

If you fall into the rising category of either or both of these tests, you can lower your risk with the following healthy living plan guidelines:

Regular exercise:

  • Keep it short - all exercises can be done in 30 to 40 minutes - 3 times a week. If you don't think you have the time, ask "what's your health value?"

  • Do resistance training. Give your endurance exercise your maximum effort each time. Use the weight of obstacles that compel you to do only the lowest - the last representative should be the last you can do. And, make sure the rest is between short exercises.

  • Use interval training for your cardio session. It takes less time and provides a great reward for getting a hip and hip measurement into a healthy zone.

  • Hire a personal trainer to learn how to exercise properly.

Eat the right things, most of the time:

  • Within 45 minutes of work, get protein combined with carbohydrate snacks to supplement your muscle tissue and energy stores.

  • Eat protein every time you eat.

  • Eat every 3 to 4 hours to maintain blood sugar and stress hormones in a healthy environment.

  • Eat breakfast.

  • Balance your protein with high carbohydrate and low fat carbohydrates.

  • Drink water - 8 to 10 glasses a day.

  • Finish consuming a variety of brightly colored vegetables.

Managing stress in your life:

  • Regular exercise and eating whole foods that are not processed will begin the process, but there is more you can do to maintain belly fat.

  • Get quality sleep every night. Get a good night's sleep, preferably before 11pm, sleep in a cool dark room and keep the bedroom free from computers or TV.

  • Get into the habit of going through the motions to get your stress hormones lower.

  • Practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, progressive relaxation, yoga or regular meditation.

  • Surround yourself with positive people that make you happy.
