I Can't Lose Weight, Could it be my Hormones?

I can’t lose weight…could it be my hormones?

Absolutely!

Hormones are chemical messages produced by the liver, thyroid, adrenals, and ovaries. If these glands aren’t operating well, hormonal imbalance occurs.  This imbalance can cause weight to accumulate around certain body parts—this is why we carry unwanted body weight in different places according to our own unique glandular weakness.

Thankfully, you can repair your metabolism. First, we identify the culprit—the root cause of your hormonal imbalance. Then, once we have identified your unique imbalance we can create a food and exercise plan that will help your hormones work with you and not against you.

Different body types need different solutions. Take the body quiz to find out what your body type is.Lose weight, feel great and enjoy lasting weight loss.

Lose weight, and feel great this spring!

Cheers to your hormonal health!
