How thyroid problems affect your weight

When those extra kilos suddenly start piling up, it's easy to feel frustrated and blame unhealthy food choices. But guess what? Hormonal imbalances play a major role in why you can’t zip up your fave dress anymore. 

You see, hormones work together to keep your body (and weight!) healthy. Unfortunately, we live in an environment that takes a toll on your hormonal balance. Stress, not enough sleep, pollution, and chemicals all affect your hormone levels. 

And when this happens, you might experience inexplicable weight gain. Continue reading to learn more about the topic and what you can do about it. 

Deciphering the hormone-weight connection

This is how hormonal imbalances impact your weight 

Let’s first unravel the mystery of hormonal weight gain. We’ve all had those moments when you don’t really watch what you eat and skip your exercise plan for a few months. Your body starts piling up the extra calories, and you start gaining kilos over time. That’s “normal” weight gain

Then there’s the tricky hormonal weight gain. In this case, it sadly doesn’t matter that you’ve been going to Zumba classes four times a week or staying on track with a balanced diet. That’s because most hormone imbalances slow down many bodily functions, including metabolism and fat burning. 

With a slower metabolism, your body can’t use up the calories as well as before, and it starts accumulating fat. Plus, the cravings for sweets and junk food really don’t help. 

But hormones don’t only control your weight. They also control where that weight goes. The extra fat may end up on your tummy, your arms, maybe all over. 

One thing is certain. No matter how much cardio you do or how many salads are on your menu, when your hormones are out of balance, you’ll have a hard time slimming down. 

The connection between weight gain and a slow thyroid 

Your overall health is connected to many hormones, but thyroid hormones are one of the most important ones when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight.  

Let’s explain. 

It all starts in your thyroid, an endocrine gland that produces thyroid hormones. These hormones control how fast your metabolism works. Basically, how fast your body converts food into energy. 

But as we said, we live in a fast-paced and polluted world. This can severely disrupt how your thyroid works and how many hormones it produces. When thyroid function is disrupted, fewer hormones are released, causing every process in the body to slow down. You’re always tired, you can’t concentrate, and you might start noticing that your skin is getting drier and drier

And your metabolism is working way below its optimal levels! This means the body can’t efficiently convert food into energy, resulting in fat accumulation all over the body even when you’re only eating salads. 

Fortunately, there is something you can do about it. And you can start right now! 

Here’s how you can stop thyroid weight gain 

Yes, you can actually prevent thyroid weight gain. Good news, right?  

Taking care of your body is vital because all that stress, ultra-processed foods and even the hidden chemicals in your makeup can mess with your hormone health. 

While we know you can’t imagine getting rid of your beauty products, we encourage you to nourish your body through whole foods and exercise. And try to get at least 8 hours of beauty sleep every night. These small steps can help protect your thyroid and overall health. 

But what about when you’re already dealing with a slow thyroid? Here’s how Thyroid Balance can help.
