Whoa! Steady girl. . .
Posted by Andrea Nakayama
Have you ever felt like you’re eating beautifully, exercising regularly, taking care of yourself in all the ways you know how and yet still the number on the scale is tipping higher and higher each time you step on its platform?
Maybe you’ve tried several cleanses and detoxes and if you’re not starving yourself, you watch or listen to every single person around you broadcasting their weight loss successes and while, yes, you feel more clean and clear and maybe even a little less bloated, not a pound has been shed from your body.
Perhaps you hold strict rules for yourself. You’re committed to your health and to aging gracefully and indeed, you are! And yet, if you go to a party and even look at a piece of cake, it seems your waist thickens.
These are some telltale signs.
Signs of what?
Signs that it’s not just your weight that’s tipping the scale, but something deep inside your body as well. It’s your hormones.
Whenever I’m leading a group through a program and someone has hit this plateau ~ no matter what their age or weight ~ I know (at least if they’re working within the parameters that I’ve constructed), that their hormones have shifted out of balance, tipped the scale, and are creating an internal environment that makes weight management an uphill battle. The worst.
And hormone havoc doesn’t just affect your metabolism. . . .
Think about your skin, your hair, your mood, your energy, your sleep and more.
Remember puberty? (Either your own or your kids?) There’s a lot going on in there resulting in all sorts of unusual changes and behaviors and it literally all comes down to a cacophony of shifting hormones.
But I’m not here to leave you hanging on hormonal harmony hopelessness.
Time and again I’m committed to offering you understanding and solutions.
So please join me next Tuesday, October 9th, for a free class called:

Functional Nutrition in Practice
In a recent discussion with some Full Body Systems graduates, I asked them to describe what nutrition means to them. Some answers identified the bioindividual approach to care that I teach in Full Body Systems—to go slow and meet patients where they are with their needs for dietary change. And some others discussed nutrients directly—like […]Read More
The Chemistry of Coffee
Although caffeine is found in over 100 plants worldwide, its effects are most potent in coffee. This potency stems from coffee’s high concentration of two other stimulants–theophylline and theobromine. Like caffeine, these two other stimulants are classified as alkaloid compounds that naturally occur in both plants and animals. Coffee is primarily consumed for its mood […]Read More
