Appearance, well-being and especially hormonal health significantly depends on a person’s lifestyle. There is no rash on the skin and no excess weight when hormones are functioning normally; a healthy person has a good mood, is energetic, productive, does not overeat, can easily get rid of stress. A healthy lifestyle does not mean going to the gym once a week, ordering healthy food delivery, or starving yourself hoping for a slim figure. To be healthy, you need to love yourself, take care of your body and especially your hormones throughout your life.
The main rules that must be followed in order to have a healthy hormonal system:
Do not follow strict diets.
No organ, especially the organ of the hormonal system, will be healthier if a person begins to starve. A strict diet is not the way to health, success and self-improvement. It is necessary to follow a healthy diet, because the necessary substances and vitamins enter the body with healthy food. Famous models, actors, in order to look good and have a slim figure, do not follow strict diets or exhausting training, but regularly do check-ups and make sure that they have a normal level of hormones.
Be sure to have breakfast. It is this meal that has a positive effect on insulin and cortisol, which gives energy for the rest of the day. Eat something healthy and nutritious: oatmeal, pasta, fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, eggs, and drink fresh juices.
Eat 3-5 times a day. Also, try not to drink while eating; drink a glass of water, coffee or tea 15-25 minutes before a meal or an hour after.
Also, drink enough water, it is recommended to drink 1.5-2 liters per day, because any hormone cannot function properly if the body is dehydrated.
Also, it is better not to eat 3-4 hours before bedtime. Also, don’t eat too much fatty food for dinner. Not overeating before bed has a positive effect not only on insulin, but also on melatonin and hormones of hunger and satiety, so it will be easier for you to fall asleep at night and wake up in the morning, you will not feel tired and excessively sleepy.
Give up harmful semi-finished products, carbonated sweet drinks, flour products.
Almonds are good for hormones. These nuts contain fatty oils, protein substances, various vitamins, and fiber. A small handful of eaten nuts or adding them to porridge, yogurt will have a positive effect on sex hormones, stress hormones and aldosterone.
Avocado is a very high-calorie fruit, but very useful for steroid hormones, because it contains a huge amount of vitamins (A, B, C, E, K, P), as well as healthy fats that are quickly absorbed by the body.
By following these two tips, you can normalize the functioning of your hormones. But remember that if you have thyroid hormone deficiency or menopause, you should contact your doctor to prescribe medication, for example, Eltroxin (Levothyroxine) or Climara (Estradiol).
