While this can sounds like a bummer, there’s also a big opportunity here for changing the game for yourself!
When you understand these 2 key aspects behind why your hormonal imbalances are contributing to your weight issues, you’ll shift your mindset and learn how to shift the pattern!
#1 – The Scientific Reason:
At the root of all period problems, there’s an imbalance with estrogen. Most often, estrogen dominance is in play, meaning that your estrogen levels are way too high in comparison to progesterone. In addition to causing the period problems, high estrogen levels are connected to water retention and weight gain.
Bottom line: You need to get your estrogen levels balanced in order to really be able to lose weight.
#2 – The Practical Reason:
Aside from all the hormonal implications occurring behind the scenes, let’s be honest –
When your hormones are out of whack and your period is suffering, you are practically not able to implement any kind of weight-loss routine. You might start out with noble efforts in the beginning of your cycle, but once that second half of your cycle starts – the luteal, pre-menstrual phase – you are doomed to failure!
If your period is symptomatic, you’re going to crave sweets and salty stuff and all the things you don’t want to be eating for weight loss. You’ll also be way too tired to work out, so any exercise efforts will fail.
Bottom line: consistency is a big challenge when your hormones are not balanced. Address your period problems first, and the weight loss will come easily.
