How your hormones make you gain weight

Hi, I'm Tina!

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

Not all weight gain is a result of eating too much.

Sure, for some women, eating more calories than they’re burning is the exact reason they’re gaining weight, but for far too many others, hormonal misfires are the real hidden culprit.

And that’s when things get tricky. 

The following misfires can contribute to weight gain…even if you’re eating well and exercising consistently:

  • High Leptin
  • High Estrogen
  • High Cortisol
  • Low Growth Hormone
  • Low Thyroid
  • Imbalanced Testosterone
  • High Insulin

And the only way to determine if any one of these misfires is causing your weight gain is to test for it.

But guess what? 

Most traditional physicians won’t even consider these factors. 

Sure, they’ll take some samples and run some tests (like, if you really, really, really push them to do it) but likely they’ll confirm that everything is ‘normal’ and tell you to just eat better or exercise more. 

But you’re already doing that. And it’s not working. What a waste! 

What you need is a comprehensive hormonal assessment like the DUTCH test to help you determine what’s really going on under the surface.

This test looks at all your hormone levels and delivers a clear and accurate picture of exactly what is happening in your body so we can more easily determine the right course of action to take to heal your hormones.

If you think that your hormones might be getting in the way of you feeling your absolute best, let me and my team of coaches help. Our 1:1 coaching begins with a DUTCH test to guide our nutrition and exercise programming so that it is most effective for your specific needs and goals.

To learn more about the DUTCH test and our unique approach to nutrition and weight loss coaching, apply for 1:1 coaching or, better yet, book a discovery call to learn more about the program and determine the best course of action for you.
