I have been diagnosed with insulin and leptin resistance...What is does hormone resistance mean? And how does it contribute to weight loss?
Hormone resistance is an impaired response of the body to a hormone or hormones.
The best way to fight hormone resistance in regards to weight loss is through making healthy lifestyle choices.
The good news is that both leptin and insulin are somewhat interactive. You can improve their performance by losing weight and eating a healthier diet. Getting active will cause your body to break down more body fat. In the process, you make your cells more sensitive to, and less resistant, to these hormones. In addition, reducing the amount of food you eat with added sugars, including beverages, will result in fewer calories consumed and a better shot at avoiding the fructose-caused form of hormone resistance.
