October 16, 2017 10:00
Hormones influence many different processes in your body, including metabolism, sleep, and changes in mood. When your hormones are off balance, your health starts deteriorating, and the risk of various health conditions (such as diabetes and heart disease) increases. Hormone imbalance is becoming more and more common these days, and poor diet is often to blame for this problem.
Changes in diet and lifestyle may help bring hormone levels back to normal, but if they don’t, the problem may be more serious and requires professional medical help.
So, here’s what can help stabilize your hormone levels:
1. Consume enough protein.
Eating enough protein is vital for the health of your muscles, bones, skin, and your body in general. Protein also affects hormones responsible for appetite and satiety, such as ghrelin, PYY, and GLP-1. It’s recommended to consume 20-30 grams of protein at every meal.
