Lose Weight Without Exercise or Calorie Restriction?

 A must-read breakthrough...

Sounds too good to be true, but that is exactly what researchers at the medical center of the esteemed University degli Studi, Naples, Italy, found and reported this year in a large, peer reviewed study.

"In a woman's life, menopause is characterized by significant physiological changes often associated with an increase in body mass and obesity associated sickness."

Numerous studies have described the effect of hormone deficiencies in aging, energy run down, and obesity in menopausal women.  The aim of this study was to determine whether obese, but otherwise healthy menopausal women, who underwent hormone replacement therapy could lose weight without changing their diet or sedentary life style.

In the group treated with natural, bio-Identical hormones, a significant drop in free fat mass was found without the addition of exercise or calorie restriction.  However, what researchers also found was that it was most important what type of hormone replacement therapy was used.  In a study by O'Sullivan et al, the participants taking synthetic, drug hormone therapy actually gained weight!

The results are important because they have a practical implication for prevention and/or treatment of obesity, as well as its associated illnesses.

If you have suffered the agony of calorie deprivation (dieting), but have failed to achieve any kind of fat reduction, this article pertains to you.  While eating less addresses some of the underlying causes of weight gain, the high failure rate of dieting is partially attributable to the severe alteration in hormone levels that occur as part of normal aging.  It's no wonder that without correcting these imbalances, losing weight can be extremely frustrating, if not impossible.

Let a quick, but comprehensive blood test we offer at The Renewal Point reveal whether you have imbalances.  If we find any, we are then able to determine the exact type and amount of bio-identical hormones that are right for you!

Before concluding, I want to point out that while this article addresses just how effective bio-identical hormones can be on their own, at The Renewal Point, we always recommend additional lifestyle changes, such as a healthy nutrition and exercise.  After treating thousands of patients, we have found that the combination of Bio-identical Hormone Balancing, Nutrition, Physical Conditioning, and Toxin Elimination are the Four Cornerstones of Health.

Women often put themselves last on their list of priorities, but I encourage you to make your own health and happiness one of your New Year's Resolutions this year ~ you deserve it!
