HOW ARE YOUR FAT CELLS AFFECTING YOUR HORMONE HEALTH?
Why is your body fat so much of a problem now than when you were younger?
Body fat has been found to be an endocrine organ and can control certain things in your body, just like other glands do.
Body fat can control:
- Inflammation all over your body
- Your appetite
- Your metabolism
- How you use energy
- How much body fat is stored on your body. Your body fat wants more body fat!
- Your blood sugar regulation which can put a stop on fat burning
There are more toxins to deal with now such as EMF’s, computers, mobile phones, more cars on the roads, more processed foods lacking nutrients and vitamins and artificial ingredients.
The food industry gets more complicated by the day and there is so much information on the internet about what foods to eat and avoid, which diet to follow and why.
No wonder that fat on your body is becoming an issue.
You do need some fat on your body. It is needed to:
Cushion your organs
To line all the cells in your body
To make hormones
To store vitamins
For brain health
To store energy
But, like anything in life, there can be too much of a good thing. You want the Goldilocks effect, not too little and not too much!
During perimenopause, fat cells can increase naturally.
It can just appear as if overnight!
Yes, annoying right.
A women’s body naturally wants to hold onto fat, it’s made that way.
When your hormone levels decline, your body will want to hold onto fat even more because fat can make your hormones.
Some of us will have more fat than others.
You can work with your hormones to help reduce body fat effectively.
One thing that you can do is to increase your protein intake.
Women need more protein in menopause to help keep muscle mass and keep metabolism high and in fat burning mode.

You have a different body now and so need to make a few changes to be able to maintain your weight.
