Despite what we’ve been told, the number on the scale isn’t always a simple reflection of the number of calories we consume vs. the number we burn. Often the real key to losing what may be unwanted belly fat, and gaining energy, clarity, and a better mood lies with your hormones. Out of whack hormones—thyroid, cortisol, testosterone, and estrogen—can contribute to weight gain and strongly affect your ability to lose weight.
According to research, in women, weight loss resistance is nearly always hormonal. Research has also shown a strong connection between low testosterone, elevated estrogen levels, and weight gain in men.
At Forum health, we use sophisticated tests that tell us the exact balance of your hormones. With this knowledge we create a program that addresses your specific needs, bringing you back in balance and helping you achieve, and maintain, a healthy weight.
