Keep gaining weight? Blame excess oestrogen!
Do you keep gaining weight, despite a rather healthy diet and regular exercise?
For women, hormonal imbalances are mostly caused by elevated levels of oestrogen.
If weight gain, accumulated fat in your hips, thighs and buttocks,problems sleeping, difficulties managing stress and bloating are some of your regular struggles, you’ll be glad to find out you can do something about it!
Let's look at what's going on in our bodies and what we can do about it!
What is oestrogen
Oestrogen is a hormone that in females helps develop and maintain both reproductive and female characteristics, such as breasts and hips. It also contributes to cognitive health and the function of the cardiovascular system.
What does oestrogen do?
1. Stores fat in the body
Oestrogen slows down your metabolism, but it also increases fat storage. When oestrogen levels are elevated, but progesterone levels are low (progesterone is a hormone released by the ovaries), this will lead to a vicious circle. Body fat releases some oestrogen (in addition to storing it), which further promotes the accumulation of those extra pounds.
2. Retains water
Oestrogen is the main reason most women feel bloated during their period. This problem can be attributed to the imbalance between oestrogen and progesterone. If there is an excess of oestrogen, the capillary walls will allow more water to pass through.
3. It increases the desire for comfort food
Just before our period, we often have an unstoppable craving for fatty and sweet foods.
This, too, is part of the great reproductive plan: the body is trying to accumulate fat so there will be more chances to get pregnant, to maintain the pregnancy until delivery and then energy for breastfeeding.
If we give in to these cravings, we can kiss goodbye to our dream physique!
4. Causes sleep problems
Lack of sleep has been shown to be associated with weight gain or weight-loss problems. According to a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, up to 67% of women said that they had a sleeping problem at least a few nights per month!
Again, an imbalance of sex hormones can be blamed!
How to achieve hormonal balance
Sadly, endocrine disruptors and chemicals that act as oestrogen in our body are virtually unavoidable in our environment; they can be found in drinking water, in plastic bottles, in our cosmetics, our cleaning products, even in our food.
What we can do, however, is make sure that excess oestrogen is removed from the body.
