Hormone #1 : Thyroid Hormone - functions for energy and metabolism. An under active thyroid slows down metabolism which can make you gain weight even if you don't eat much. Sufferers experience fatigue, high triglyceride level, dry skin and hair, hair loss, menstrual problems, memory disturbances and weight gain.
Hormone #2 : INSULIN - a low fat diet but full of carbohydrates causes overproduction of insulin. These bad carbs are white bread, white rice, pasta, and starchy vegetables. When there's too much insulin, you gain weight and have increased risk of diseases. Excess insulin has become our main hormonal problem. If you are wondering wether or not you are producing too much insulin, look at your belly. If you can't see your abs, then your pancreas is secreting too much insulin.Get it?
Hormone #3 : GLUCAGON - another hormone secreted by the pancreas but does the opposite of Insulin. It MELTS FAT! When Glucagon metabolizes fat into energy, you lose weight.When you eat, you produce insulin and insulin inhibits glucagon. When you don't eat, glucagon is produced and you burn fat, and lose weight. So stay on a diet low in sugar and high in natural fats. And Exercise! Follow me for the rest of the important hormones.
