What is the HormoneSync for WeightLoss Program?
While poor diet and lack of exercise are key factors that can lead to weigh gain, certain underlying hormonal causes may also play a role. In fact, science has uncovered several strong links between your hormones, hunger, cravings, body fat and weight loss. When unbalanced, your hormones can work against weight loss.
With age, imbalances of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and thyroid hormones can contribute to creeping body fat and difficulty shedding weight. Stress, poor sleep and eating the wrong foods can increase cortisol (a stress hormone) and insulin levels, making it easier to put on weight, especially around the abdomen. Imbalances in one or more of these hormones can drive hunger and cravings, decrease muscle, lower your metabolism and encourage your cells to store fat more readily.
The HormoneSync for WeightLoss Program is a medically-supervised program that assesses hormones that could be affecting your weight, and, if appropriate, balances hormone levels using customized bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Our program provides a customized meal plan that’s realistic for you, expert one-on-one diet coaching and the accountability of frequent follow up meetings.
