What’s more important calories or hormones? This is a frequently asked, question, particularly when it comes to weight control.
Though there isn’t a simple answer to that question, hormones are major players when it comes to hunger, satiety, weight control and cravings. However calories do count, but what matters when it comes to dieting? Well they both count, calories influence hormones and hormones influence calories.
At Metabolic Balance we are experts in helping people balance hormones and regulate metabolism with personalized nutrition. Find out how at my free webinar scheduled for June 17, @ 5pm PST. Limited availability and open to Canadian residents only. Click here to register and find out more.
When hormones are properly controlled, the hormonal influences on metabolism reduce and even eliminate the compensatory eating reactions typical of a dieting metabolism.
In other words, your metabolism is like a disagreeable friend who is never satisfied and always wants things to be different. If you want to understand your metabolism you need to learn to play its game and be ready to make it happy.
If you decide to eat less and exercise more (and rely on willpower), good luck to ya! Your metabolism will compensate for this by increasing your hunger, lowering your energy and increasing your cravings!
Exercising a lot and NOT eating in a way to sustain calorie output is not the answer. And cutting out fat isn’t the answer because it’s the very thing that actually helps to BALANCE hormones.
Intense exercise will impact cortisol. Cortisol, will impact insulin, which will lead to more cravings and erratic energy. Plus, these hormones impact your sex hormones estrogen and progesterone, which can lead to cramping, bloating, headaches and mood swings.
This is why we need to eat in a way that supports hormone health.
Inside the metabolic reset program our meal plans are designed to optimize your fat burning hormones and in turn, you’ll feel balanced – with your hunger, energy and cravings.
But what about calories?
In a “calories first” approach, these compensatory reactions (hunger, energy and cravings) will get worse. This is the reason people are unable to stay on “eat less, exercise more” programs.
In fact, 66% of people, who use the popular calorie driven mantra of “eat less, exercise more,” end up fatter two years later than they were before they started the diet.
Switching to a hormone balance approach is really not that hard it just takes some understanding about the metabolism. At metabolic balance we are experts at getting back to balance.
You may not be aware, but you have direct access to what is going on with your major metabolic hormones via biofeedback signals.
Hunger, cravings, and energy levels are all dramatically influenced by hormones and getting these in check is what we do best inside the metabolic balance reset program
