Diet And Hormones

What we eat has a direct affect on how we feel. This is because your body assimilates the food that you consume and turns it into fuel and uses the nutrients to create what your body requires. Food to our body is like gas to a car–we need it to function.

Your hormones (Testosterone, Progesterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Cortisol, Growth Hormone, etc.) are all created from the food you eat. Following a Paleolithic diet (vegetables, fruit, meat, poultry, eggs, fish) and enduring that the food is organic ensures your body can make healthy hormones. Avoid or minimize sugar, alcohol, caffeine, dairy products, smoking, breads, pastas, and cereals. These all affect your body’s ability to make hormones and keep a hormonal balance.

Hormone balancing is important to feeling and looking your best long term. Following a healthy diet and lifestyle will maximize the benefits that you get from bio-identical hormones.
