Hormones can make us look and feel younger but also over worked and tired – they are what keeps and renew many aspects of our body – its not just testosterone or estrogen which are commonly known hormones by the average person; insulin and thyroid also are in this category – imbalance of hormones can also result in issues like hair thinning and bad quality skin as well as dulling of the eyes (you will know if you paid enough attention).
So what are the ways to naturally reset and balance the hormone system in men and women?
One very powerful method is by eating a certain diet; this diet does not really have a name, but is often referred to as the protein diet; and it involved eating only lean protein and dark green leafy greens, nothing else. All sugars are banned in this diet, and sugar is defined as fat, carbs, alcohol, sauces, fruit and everything that even remotely tastes like sugar – so everything is banned except lean meats, centered around beef (but not minced meat unless you mince it yourself and know that there is no added fat).
Beef is the priority meat over the other meats, but you can still have lamb, chicken, duck and even white fish (not salmon and other similar fish however as they are very fatty) – remember, you can’t have the skin parts of these as they also have fat.
So why is fat the enemy?
Fat is not the enemy – but the body uses the fat and sugars and even carbs to create hormones in the body; this affects the body if you have been eating a certain pattern of sugars which create a hormone imbalance – one powerful way to correct it is to stop eating all forms of fat – even one drop of fat will restart the hormone production and we want the internal hormone system to stay quiet for long enough (1 to 6 months and even up to a year for serious cases) so that the body adjusts itself to normal and balanced.
Its not that eating fat, carbs and sugars is bad; but often over consumption will lead the body to so many issues in the body, the only natural way is to fully stop eating all fats and sugars until the body resets – it is like fasting, but for the full hormone system of the body; in fasting, you give a rest to your stomach and don’t eat anything for a certain amount of time, this helps renew the stomach, with this diet, you help renew the hormone system as the body will be craving sugars and fat to produce hormone, but you are not providing it, and allowing the body to rest rather than always be flooded with all kinds of fats and sugars; if it is has nothing to do, it starts renewing itself and repairing anything that needed repairing but was not able to due to constant flow of sugar.
Another reason fat and sugar are removed from the diet, is that, they are the foods that inflammation feeds from; and inflammation is the root cause of most diseases; if this is handles well, inflammation simply cannot occur.
The best thing about this diet is – you look great after the diet. You lose weight too! But this is not the goal of this diet, just a side affect of not eating all those sugars and carbs.
