Not all weight gain is a result of eating too much and lack of exercise.
Sure, for some women, eating more calories than they’re burning is the exact reason they’re gaining weight, but for far too many others, hormonal misfires are the real hidden culprit.
And that’s when things get tricky.
The following misfires can contribute to weight gain…even if you’re eating well and exercising consistently:
- High Leptin
- High Estrogen
- High Cortisol
- Low Growth Hormone
- Low Thyroid
- Imbalanced Testosterone
- High Insulin
And the only way to determine if any one of these misfires is causing your weight gain is to test for it.
But guess what?
Most traditional physicians won’t even consider these factors.
Sure, they’ll take some samples and run some tests (like, if you really, really, really push them to do it), but likely they’ll confirm that everything is ‘normal’ and tell you to just eat better or exercise more.
But you’re already doing that. And it’s not working. Ughhhhh!
What you need is a comprehensive hormonal assessment like the DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) to help you determine what’s really going on under the surface. LISTEN HERE for a full explanation of the test and why I love using with my clients so much!
The DUTCH looks at all your hormone levels and delivers a clear picture of exactly what is happening in your body so we can more easily determine the right course of action to take to heal your hormones. It helps us answer questions like: Are you making estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone? How much? If you’re making enough, is your body processing them in a way that makes you feel great or crappy?
If you think that your hormones might be getting in the way of you feeling your absolute best, let me and my team of coaches help. One of our coaching options begins with a DUTCH test to guide our nutrition and exercise programming so that it is most effective for your specific needs and goals.
To learn more about the DUTCH test and our unique approach to nutrition and weight loss coaching, book a discovery call to learn more about the program and determine the best course of action for you. The cost of a discovery call is $39 as we only want serious applicants to apply. (If you end up signing up, this amount will be applied to your program.) Once you submit your payment, you will receive a link via email to schedule your call.
P.S. If you’re not interested in hormone testing, you can still work with a coach to help you find balance within your diet and exercise habits. If you’re ready to sign up for macro coaching ONLY (no hormone testing), you can do so HERE. Once you sign up, you’ll receive details on how to connect with your coach to get started. (A discovery call is optional; not required.)
