http://jenspringer.com/4-pillars-webinar My BioIdentical Hormone Weight Gain & How I Lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks. Got a story to tell you! Grab a pen, pad, and something to drink especially if you are a woman that cannot lose A POUND OF WEIGHT!
If you are concerned you’re gaining weight for no reason, this is an important video for weight gain and weight loss due to hormones.
Few years we were exposed to mold. It affected me with my hormones. Neurological problems, panic attacks, anxiety, feeling crazy, thyroid out the window and severe hormone problems.
Adrenals out the window too, adrenal fatigue.
With a lot of research and my own practitioner experience with a MS in Nutrition, BS Environmental Science, and AS in Massage Therapy.
I knew there were something going on, one doesn’t lose weight and feel crazy for no reason.
One of my physicians gave me a mega dose of bioidentical progesterone at 200 mg / day. I gained a pound a week! All progesterone turned into estrogen and weight gain was so bad I gained 30 pounds of fat.
Weight gain not due eating. I eat vegetables, proteins, complex carbohydrates that are all low glycemic. The weight gain was NOT due to diet. No sugar, no sugar drinks.
The scale every week was going up a pound. I surrendered myself to the 30 pounds because I was sleeping better, not feeling as crazy, and stopped tremoring.
6 months went by and I found a different physician. He explained to me that ALL of the progesterone was turning into estrogen. Estrogen affects blood sugar by increasing insulin and also lowers thyroid function. Sugar increases in the blood and FAT STORES in the belly.
It was tough!!! The dose of progesterone was lowered and was paired with chrysin. My progesterone and testosterone was low and estrogen was high. I stopped gaining weight immediately after the lower dose w/ progesterone and chrysin.
Every few months I tried to lose weight and I’d feel crazy due to hormones releasing during weight loss. Sleep problems, anxiety, and feeling crazy.
Then I started estrogen detoxification for 1.5 years SLOWLY every day, EVERY DAY and being mindful about diet no eating anything possibly estrogenic. No soy or pomegranates. No ginger, cinnamon, turmeric for me either. Lots of spice can act estrogenic affect too.
I would keep detoxing then I would try to lose the bioidentical hormone weight gain and I would feel crazy again. The weight I gained for no logical reason!
It took 2 years of detoxing estrogen before I could lose any weight. I would test the waters.
January 1st 2018 I said ENOUGH of the weight. I remembered when I easily maintained weight and I did that.
Lunch 4 pm
Dinner 8 pm
Snack 12 am (because of hypoglycemia)
No snacking in between meals. No drinks with calories. Body will use the fuel from previous meals and will help balance leptin levels.
This intermittant fasting thing started working really well and SLASHED calories to 1100-1200 a day.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 1100 to 1200 calories on the 12-4-4-4 meal times with low glycemic (55 and under) foods.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday normal calories and still low glycemic foods. Sometimes I do 12-4-4-4 and sometimes I snack. Not super ridgid.
My BioIdentical Hormone Weight Gain & How I Lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks
1. Intermittent fasting
2. Calorie slashing
3. Glycemic Index under 55
Log all foods in the glycemic index to watch the GI and calories. Daily glycemic average is between 35-45. Very important to keep insulin levels low to lose weight.
These are a few things you can try, we are all different.
More videos on how to detox extrogen and low glycemic but this can get you started.
You are not alone if you have gained weight on bioidentical hormones, progesterone can become estrogen so easily.
