The obesity rates are evergrowing and are estimated to 32.2% for men and 35.5 for women, amongst Americans. Some of the most promising diets now are the ketogenic diet, the carnivore diet, and intermittent fasting. But do they work for everyone?
A new diet started to gain a broad audience. The Hormone Diet. It outlines that some imbalances in the level of the hormones can make the body stagnate from losing weight. In what consists this diet? The short answer is that helped by specific foods, we can get the ‘antagonist’ hormones cooperate with our diet plan. These imbalances can cause substantial difficulties in building muscles and torching calories.
There are a few differences between the hormone diets available, but all of them have the same target.
Hormones are ‘messengers’ in the bloodstream. They have one of the most significant chemical roles for a well functioning of the organism. This is how you can make your hormones act following your weight goal.
The 3 Steps of The Hormone Diet
According to the book ‘The Hormone Diet: A 3-Step Program to Help You Lose Weigh, Gain Strength, and Live Younger Longer’, available on Amazon, a few steps are getting you closer the body you want.
The first step is the ‘detox’ phase. Remove certain foods and beverages that challenge your hormone levels, like red meat, cow’s milk and milk byproducts (such as cheese or yogurts) sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. Besides, add some replacements: fruits, vegetables, poultry, dairy products from sheep and goats, plant-based milk, and fish.
The step two recommends giving up on refined grains, artificial sweeteners, and processed foods.
In step three, the reader is advised to prioritise the cardiovascular and strength training workout in daily life.
Observations: The diet cuts off some of the daily calories sources, as most of them are empty of any nutritional value( alcohol, sugary beverages, processed food, etc.). Instead, it tops up our plate with plenty of fibers, vitamins, and minerals that are vital to our health. Together with a decent amount of exercises, it can lead to the desired outcomes (weight loss) and also have plenty of benefits for our general health and well-being.
