Hormonal Profiles and Body Types
There is a very commonly believed myth about weight loss — that the sole reason for slow weight loss is because you eat too much and don’t exercise enough.
The truth, though, is that weight loss is all about hormones and metabolism. Hormones control metabolism, and metabolism determines how fast you are able to burn fat off of your body.
There are four body types or shapes, and each is associated with a particular hormone-producing organ.
Someone with a sagging belly has an adrenal type of body. The adrenal gland sits on top of the kidneys, and its purpose is to help you cope and deal with stress.
The adrenal gland produces the hormone cortisol. When there’s too much cortisol, the body tells the fat to go in and around your belly. That’s because you have vital organs in your belly — liver, kidney, pancreas — and your body under stress uses fat as the main fuel source to keep these organs alive.
Someone who has weight on their hips, thighs and a stomach pouch — is an ovary / oestrogen body type. Ovaries can make oestrogen, and oestrogen creates a lining of fat as cellulite and deposits it around the pelvis.
This type has problems associated with the menstrual cycle. In menopause, the ovary type can turn into the adrenal type.
Someone who has a pot belly has a liver type of body. The liver leaks fluid into a sack around the belly, causing the belly to protrude.
Someone with fat distributed equally all over their body is a thyroid type. The thyroid gland controls every cell in the body and regulates metabolic rate.
