What kinds of things affect hormones and cause weight management issues?
Most people gain weight from years of eating foods that are full of chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives, as well as making poor food choices, and practicing other unhealthy lifestyle habits. It's not only how MUCH people eat that makes them gain weight, but what they are eating, the quality of food, and WHEN they are eating also causes contributes.
You also have to consider other habits like, emotions & stress, sleep habits, fluid intake, movement, environmental toxins, and even medical conditions.
Issues in any of these areas can lead to hormonal imbalance. Our hormones work on the buddy system - when one is out of whack, it's like a domino effect - they all start to topple.
Hence, we gain (or are unable to lose), and typically we want a quick fix or a miracle pill, which is what our society conditions us to think and do.
Supplements can help you get back on the right track, however they can't do all the work for you. They are a tool, and can aid and assist your body with certain processes, but in the end, without making a lifetime commitment to proper nutrition, exercise and a healthy mindset, most people will gain their weight back as soon as they stop taking a supplement.
