Are you having a hard time losing weight? Even with regular exercise, you might find that it is difficult to lose weight and keep it off for good. This can be due to a hormonal imbalance and inflammation in your body.

• High estrogen levels can lead to weight gain. Women may experience high levels of estrogen naturally or because of consuming or being exposed to a variety of external sources. These include certain types of medication, such as birth control pills as well as foods that have been injected with growth hormones or are not properly cleaned of pesticides. Using plastics and being exposed to heavy metals can also mimic the properties of estrogen, causing the body to produce more of this hormone.

• Low testosterone levels can also lead to weight gain. That is because this hormone significantly impacts the metabolism, so lower testosterone levels can cause the metabolism to slow down, making it harder to maintain a healthy weight. This also makes it difficult to build muscle mass and feel motivated to exercise. Low testosterone levels can also occur naturally or be caused by short-term or long-term illnesses, medications (like opioids), alcohol abuse, inflammatory conditions, and more.

• Thyroid issues may also be to blame for weight gain. Even if your thyroid is in the normal range, other numbers that influence your thyroid function may not be optimized. This includes the T3, T4, Reverse T3, and antibody TPO, which is why it is important to undergo detailed testing. If these other numbers are not optimized, your thyroid may not be functioning properly. This can slow down your metabolism, lower your energy levels, negatively impact your gut, and make it more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

• An Inflammatory Diet also significantly impacts the body’s ability to lose weight. A diet that is high in sugars, processed foods, and fried foods can cause insulin resistance—which makes the cells unable to absorb blood sugar and utilize it for energy. As a result, the pancreas produces more insulin, which causes blood sugar levels to rise. This can cause the body to store extra fat while increasing the risk of developing prediabetes and diabetes.
