Module 2: How Changes In Oestrogen & Progesterone Affect Your Metabolism

This post discusses Oestrogen & Progesterone . If you would like to know more about the 6 Week Weight Loss Program scroll down further on this page.


Oestrogen & Progesterone

  • From your mid-30′s, progesterone levels are the first sex hormones to decline. The result is a disequilibrium of oestrogen to progesterone commonly referred to as“oestrogen dominance.”
  • Too much oestrogen with too little progesterone is responsible for the symptoms of hormone imbalance such as sleep disturbances, foggy thinking and abdominal weight gain.
  • A decrease in oestrogen can cause your body to tolerate processed carbohydrates such as pasta and breads less effectively which leads to blood sugar imbalances, increased fat storage and difficulty in losing weight.
  • Fat cells bring about oestrogen production while an elevated oestrogen level slow down metabolism.
  • Your body’s hormones are like a seesaw. When they’re perfectly balanced, your bodyworks as it should. But when they’re unbalanced, your body may begin experiencing the effects of oestrogen dominance with symptoms such as high stress and weight gain.

Stop listening to people who tell you that following a weight loss plan means a life of deprivation. 
Instead, understand that it is the START of finding more energy and vitality and getting your life back on track.

Oestrogen is vital for a woman's health and when it is too high, it can cause with gain around the stomach area, as well as hips and bum.

While high oestrogen levels are an issue for peri-menopausal women...

A drop in oestrogen in post-menopausal women can also contribute to weight gain.

Balancing your hormones is the key to looking and feeling great after 45!

The goal is to work to rebalance your oestrogen and progesterone levels.

I help you lose weight by addressing your hormones & how they affect your weight loss efforts

Why oestrogen and progesterone should be in balance

Hormonal imbalance affects the logical decision making centres in your brain, heightens the stress response and can make you feel emotionally imbalanced and is often the cause of excessive responses such as anger, irritability, teariness or anxiety. Constant reactivity leads to depression and mood swings. 

Getting hormones into harmony can help curb these excessive responses.



You are one step away from starting your own weight loss journey following my step-by-step, proven program for identifying  what foods work with your body and what does not in order to achieve a leaner, happier you in just 6 weeks.

3 tips to get you started now ... 

1. Every day products that you may be using, such as certain perfumes, plastics and personal care products. Some of these products may mimic oestrogen and make your body think it has high oestrogen levels, causing weight gain. To limit your exposure, try making the switch to natural cleaning products as well as personal care products and avoid plastics as much as possible.

2. Support a healthy gut. Oestrogen can be produced and metabolised in your gut. If you have an imbalance in your gut bacteria, you oestrogen production may be affected. To help support and maintain a healthy gut, ensure you eat plenty of fibre from fermented foods and green leafy vegetables. 

3. Dietary advice to improve and prevent hormonal imbalance. Foods which assist hormonal balance are foods which contain the necessary nutrients for hormone metabolism, particularly cruciferous family such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts, asparagus, bok choy, Chinese vegetables and cabbage are also powerful hormone regulators. Fibre rich foods assist in the correct elimination of metabolised hormones broken down by the liver. Refined sugars are known to disrupt glandular balance while saturated fats from fried foods, highly processed foods, and margarines can increase oxidation which can worsen the physical symptoms of hormonal imbalance. 

Hormones That Are Also Discussed In The 6 Week Weight Loss Program

  • Cortisol: the stress hormone that causes blood sugar spikes and development of belly fat.
  • check
    Insulin: if your body is unable to use glucose from your food efficiently, the sugar builds up in your blood, which can lead to weight 
  • check
    Thyroid: an unexplained change in weight is one of the most common signs of poor thyroid function.
  • check
    Leptin: High levels of Leptin and leptin resistance can contribute to obesity. If you are trying to lose weight, chances are you may be leptin resistance. If you can’t seem to stick to weight loss programs or find it difficult to lose weight, chances are you are leptin resistant.
