How To Balance Your Hormones Naturally

Six Signs That Your Hormones Are Out of Sync

You might be experiencing a number of these symptoms:

1. Weight gain - especially around your middle

2. Low energy – you struggle to get out of bed and / or have an energy crash in the afternoon

3. Food cravings - particularly for carbohydrates

4. Trouble sleeping – you can’t get to sleep and / or wake during the night

5. Mood swings

6. You feel HANGRY!

How to help rebalance your hormones:

Include Protein

Eating an adequate amount of protein helps to reduce levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin which keeps you feeling fuller for longer. Eggs are a great choice especially for breakfast.

Avoid Refined Carbohydrates

White fluffy foods like white bread, pasta, biscuits and cakes cause a rapid rise and then a fall in levels of blood sugar which can disrupt the hormone insulin and also have a corresponding effect on energy levels.

Eat Healthy Fats

Omega 3 fats found in oily fish and nuts and seeds not only help to stabilise blood sugar but are also good for the brain and can help improve mood and concentration.

Manage Stress

Perhaps easier said than done! But high or persistent stress can play havoc with your hormone balance so consider adding a stress busting activity into your day such as a walk, yoga or reading a book.

Sleep

Lack of sleep can impact appetite, mood and energy so it is important to have a routine that will help with sleep. E.g. no caffeine after 2pm, no phones or tablets for 2 – 3 hours before bed, eat 3 hours before retiring and go to bed and wake up at roughly the same time every day.

These are just a few of the symptoms and solutions that I will be addressing on my Be A Hormone Boss online programme that starts on 10th June.
