5 FACTORS AFFECTING GROWTH HORMONE
What is growth hormone?
Growth hormone is an anabolic hormone naturally produced in the pituitary gland.
Why is it important?
Growth hormone is responsible for stimulating the growth and repair of every tissue in the body, along with releasing fat from fat cells.
Here are the 5 FACTORS AFFECTING GROWTH HORMONE
1. Quality of sleep
This is the most important factor of growth hormone because Up to 80% of the growth hormone is secreted at night, between 11 pm and 1 am.
2. Other Hormones
This could be in the form of trouble falling asleep to hot flashes and night sweats.
If the liver is overworking or backed up, you will have trouble falling or staying asleep.
As Stress-Reduced Fat Loss Practitioners, we recommend keeping at least 12 hours between dinner and breakfast for any person. We don’t consider this a fast. We consider this foundational.
Fasting usually starts at 14 hours or more. For ladies, we recommend only fasting on alternating days. As a lady, if you fast too often you will throw your hormones off.
So it is a practice to give your digestive system a break for 12 hours between dinner and breakfast.
Hope this tip helps you.more
How well is your digestion?
On my journey to become a Stress-Reduced Fat Loss Practitioner we use 2 different tests to understand and improve a client's digestion. When you think of losing weight you probably don't think of digestion. Most people just think of exercise and the foods that they eat. But digestion and sleep are 2 of the most important things for losing weight and dropping body fat.
Digestion includes the following:
How well food is chewed
How healthy the gut is
How well the gut absorbs nutrients
How well do we eliminate wastes
I am a fast eater so I have to be intentional about taking my time and slow down when I eat.
Knowing the 4 things above, which one do you need to work on to improve your digestion?
Fruit is a great snack.
Here are a few things that may help you when eating fruit.
1 One piece of fruit per day is best.
Fruit is a simple sugar so it raises your insulin more than a complex carb (examples of complex carbs are rice, sweet potatoes, quinoa).
2 Have fruit during the day instead of in the evening.
3 Eat fruit by itself. Don't eat it with protein because it will not digest well.
4 Fruits with thinner skin are better for you. Example berries
Hope these tips about fruit help you on your journey.

The top 3 hormones that are the biggest problem for people in North America.
When these 3 hormones are out of balance, losing bodyfat is extremely hard or nearly impossible.
What are these three hormones' and what cause them to get out of control?

When insulin is out of control we store fat in our love handles....more
