The key elements to losing weight are of course good nutrition and exercise.
However, as a hormone doctor I’m very aware that hormones have a huge impact on our ability to lose weight and how fast we gain weight. Many women I see tell me that they noticed considerable weight gain after menopausal in the perimenopause.
I am someone who has always struggle to lose weight and find that I can put on weight very easily and it takes a very long time to come off. One of the reasons I do the work I do, is because I’m fascinated by hormones and the human body. By mastering my hormones such as looking at my oestrogen dominance and healing that, and also managing my cortisol better and treating insulin resistance early, I have seen huge changes in my weight.
With weight changes also comes in increase sense of vitality and confidence and a much-improved quality of life.
