How To Trigger Your Fat Burning Hormones

Why aren’t you burning fat?

If you are like a lot of our patients, you have been frustrated by the increasingly difficult task of burning fat. Is this due to aging?

I hear a lot of complaints from patients like:

“I work out, and work out, and work out, and I still have this stubborn belly fat!”

“No matter how much I diet, or starve myself, I still can’t seem to lose these saddle bags!”

“I’m too busy to work out, and I just keep getting fatter.”

“I used to be so fit. Now, I work out twice as much, and eat half the food, and I am fatter than I’ve ever been.”

“Once I turned 40, it was impossible to get rid of this belly fat!”

“No matter how much I work out, I can’t get rid of this cellulite!”

The fact is, that if your fat burning hormones aren’t being triggered, then you will not burn fat. So, what are the reasons that your fat burning hormones are not being released? Below are just a few:

1. Stress – Stress is the #1 contributing factor to every single illness, and it also makes us fat. When you are stressed, your adrenal glands release cortisol. Cortisol is also known as “the belly fat hormone.”

2. Caffeine – Sorry to say, but caffeine makes us fat. It causes cortisol to be released, and it is super acidic. The body functions best when your pH is alkaline – not acidic.

3. Over-eating and Under-eating – when we over/under eat, we confuse the body. If the body thinks you’re starving, then it will store fat.

4. Refined sugar – Soda, candy, donuts, snack bars, processed food… all full of refined sugar. Yes, refined sugar makes us fat – still…

5. Alcohol – they don’t call it a beer belly for no reason. Alcohol breaks down into sugar very quickly, and also causes cortisol to be released in the body.

6. Refined carbs – white bread, white pasta, white flour tortillas, cereal, bagels, donuts… All of the complex carbohydrates that slow the uptake of sugar into your bloodstream are removed, in the process of making flour white. Eat whole grains – not processed, refined grains.

7. Skipping meals – starving makes your body store fat.

8. No exercise – or the wrong type of exercise – If your muscles aren’t sore, you’re probably not releasing fat burning hormones when you exercise.

9. Toxicity – face it – we live in a toxic environment, with a toxic air, food, and water supply. Your body stores toxins in your fat cells. It’s important to detoxify your body on a regular basis, if you want to lose fat.

10. Poor Sleeping Habits – If you’re not getting 6-8 hours/night of uninterrupted sleep, you will store fat as a result.

11. Pain – Being in pain makes you store fat. Chronic pain means you’ve stored a lot of fat!

How many of you were reading through that list, thinking “Yep! I do all of those things. No wonder I’m not burning fat! Now I know this information, I will change everything today, and make better choices, so I can burn this fat, and have a healthier body!”

How many of you were thinking “I’m not doing too badly. I eat pretty healthily. I could cut back on caffeine and alcohol, though. I wonder if I’m doing the right type of exercise.”?

How about “Stress?! No matter what I do, I will not be able to get rid of my stress! My job, my kids, my aging parents, the economy, politics… Even if I did stop eating donuts, and drinking coffee, and martinis, I will never get rid of my stress, and this affects my sleep habits. What can I do?”

And, how about “I have a stressful life, I will never give up my coffee, I don’t have time to exercise, and if I don’t have a martini when I get home, I simply can’t unwind. What can I do?”
