 Hormones: What You Can Do To Control Them?

When people are focused on weight loss most of them think of diets and exercise to accomplish their goals. What many people miss is how important your Hormones are when trying to drop those pounds. Not only can they affect how your body uses the foods you eat, the chemicals needed to burn fat and increase your metabolism are directly affected by your hormones.

So without getting to technical here is one area that affects your hormones and what you can do to counteract any negative effects.

Toxins and chemicals from outside sources can have a major effect on your body and hormones. So doing what you can to avoid pesticides and harsh, toxic chemicals in the foods you eat will be a great help with your weight loss goals.

Some people would say “just eat all Organic foods…”

This may sounds good, but the truth is it is very hard to accomplish. Anyone who has tried it quickly finds out how expensive it can be. Thankfully, it is not necessary to eat everything organic. The two following lists will help you decide what foods to get Organic and what foods will be fine farmed traditionally.

First we will start off with the food that should be purchased organic when possible. These are known to be highly sprayed with pesticides or contain higher levels of toxins. All of that will mess up your hormones, damage your DNA and have negative effects to your body on a cellular level. So we recommend buying these organic.

These are known as the Dirty Dozen:

  1. Nectarines
  2. Celery
  3. Apples
  4. Lettuce
  5. Strawberries
  6. Grapes
  7. Blueberries
  8. Peaches
  9. Potatoes
  10. Bell Peppers
  11. Cucumbers
  12. Spinach

Next we have a list of foods do not have to be sprayed as much as the list above and buying non-organic is fine and will save you a lot of your hard earned cash.

Here are the Clean Fifteen:

  1. Onions
  2. Asparagus
  3. Avocados
  4. Watermelon
  5. Cantaloupe
  6. Yams
  7. Coconuts
  8. Sweet Potatoes
  9. Kiwis
  10. Squash
  11. Eggplant
  12. Pineapple
  13. Oranges
  14. Peas
  15. Cabbage

You may want to write then down, print out this list or save it to your phone or tablet so you will have them with you on your next trip to the store.
