One SOLITARY HORMONE controls EVERY OTHER WEIGHT LOSS HORMONE

 
Did you know that there's ONE solitary hormone that pretty much controls EVERY other weight loss hormone in your body, and your ability to burn fataltogether?
In fact, when you have this ONE hormone on your side, fat loss truthfully couldn't get easier.
 
When you don't, however, losing even asingle poundcan become virtually impossible.
The hormone? Leptin. And here's the unfortunate news: Just abouteveryoneis unknowingly fighting a losing battle with leptin each and every time they attempt to lose weight.

Statistics and Facts:

8 reasons you might have hit a plateau with weight loss:

Losing weight is confusing enough without all the gimmicks and conflicting advice, but what's the deal when your weight loss efforts suddenly stall?
 
Vibrant health, a strong build, and effortless weight management are a natural outcome when hormone levels are healthy. However, there are many lifestyle factors that can impact our hormones and keep us from reaching our goals.
 
Here are 8 reasons you might have hit a plateau with your weight loss efforts:
 
1. You're doing too much cardio.

Your GI tract is MUCH more than digestion

Unfortunately, many people think of their gut solely as the mechanism by which your body digests food, which is at best an extreme oversimplification, and at worst an ideology massively contributing to the health problems, weight loss struggles, and auto-immune disorders of millions world-wide.

In reality, your GI tract is MUCH more than a digestion center; in fact, it is quite literally yoursecond brainas well as being “home” to 80% of your immune system.

You see, within your gut reside roughly 100 TRILLION living bacteria…

Lesson in Leptin

What Causes Leptin Resistance - Are you having trouble losing weight?
 
Before I tell you how to stop this cycle, we need to know what causes it. Themaincause is blood sugar surges caused by excess carbohydrate intake, especially refined, processed carbohydrates that breakdown into sugar quickly. You may be thinking, this sounds like the same main cause of insulin resistance.  What disrupts one disrupts the other. Insulin resistance usually comes after leptin resistance, so the earlier you can turn it around the better, but it’s never too late.

The single most important fat buring hormone

You may have just seen me talking on a TBN national show about leptin the weight loss hormone. Well, I'm here to talk to you about the single most important fat-burning hormone in your body. Its name is leptin, and in fact, leptin is such a dominant, critically important hormone that it literally controls every other weight loss hormone in your body…andyour ability to burn fat as a whole. In my book Happy The New Sexy, I explain how 40 million Americans are suffering from a hormone imbalance.

EAT THIS SWEET FOR BRAIN HEALTH

You may have heard about the fat-burning benefits associated with dark chocolate due to it’s theobromine content. Theobromine, a bitter alkaloid found naturally in dark chocolate, has been shown to suppress appetite and mobilize fatty acids to be burned as energy (without the stimulatory side effects of caffeine).
That said, what you may not know or realize is that dark chocolate can also boost your brain health as well! It’s true, as dark chocolate is rich in antioxidant flavonoids, which help to fight against oxidative stress that deteriorates brain tissue over time.

GI health

In reality, your GI tract is MUCH more than a digestion center; in fact, it is quite literally yoursecond brainas well as being “home” to 80% of your immune system.
Several new studies are finding a link between the gut bacteria, brain chemistry and mental health. Even though in its beginning stages, this exciting new field of research holds a lot of promise.Bacteria cells in the human body outnumber huuman cells ten to one.  The average human carries around about five pounds of bacteria, mostly in their gut.

Reduce your chance of Breast Cancer

My initial intention to go to naturopathic school was to help people prevent illness and stay healthy. To Reduce your chance of breast cancer, you need to watch that you don't become estrogen dominate.
 

            Estrogen caused cell proliferation and cell growth. Estrogen dominance in this day     and age in my opinion comes from many places, but the most common are:

Leptin Resistance

I will be talking about Leptin on TBN This week. Here is what I am going to cover should you miss the show. If you want more information you can order my new book Happy The New Sexy.
What Leptin Is
Leptinis our weight loss  hormone secreted by our fat cells. It is what  tells you you’re full. (Its opposite hormone is calledghrelin, which tells you you’re hungry. You can remember this because the word ghrelin sounds like a stomach growling.) Because leptin is secreted by fat cells, you produce more leptin as your weight increases.
