3 things that mess with hormones (and screw up fatloss)

Ready for the magic secret to effortless fatloss?

Oops! There isn't one.

No matter how much I wish it weren't true, you can't get around one basic truth about losing fat...

Calories count...

You need to eat fewer calories than your body needs if you want to fit back into your "skinny jeans."

However, you can create the perfect calorie deficit and still end up with little or no fatloss results!...

...If your hormones get messed up.

You see, hormones are the chemical messengers in your body that direct traffic. And if they get their signals crossed, they can do all kinds of stuff you don't want them to do...

Like hold on to trapped fat...

Here my top 3 picks for things you can do to make sure you keep those suckers doing their jobs properly...

1. Avoid Excessive Sugar

This may seem obvious. Yet it's not just about calories...

You could eat precisely the right amount of calories to theoretically put you in the fat burning zone, yet still be frustrated with your results...

That's because all the sugar is messing up a hormone called insulin.

Insulin is a bit like your body's own personal Fedex. It picks up packages--nutrients like protein, carbs and fat--and delivers them to your cells. You NEED insulin to live, thrive and perform at your best. But too much sugar sends the system out of whack. Packages start getting delivered to all the wrong places.

You start storing more energy as fat because you've become "insulin resistant" and your lean tissues aren't answering the door anymore when the delivery guy comes calling -- EVEN IF you are in a calorie deficit!...

2. Wind Down Early

Normally, levels of the stress hormone cortisol drop at night, which helps you wind down and sleep. But becoming anxious or tense in the evening -- like when you work late or check emails before bed -- means your cortisol levels keep surging.

High cortisol prevents the release of melatonin--the "sleepy hormone." And that's bad for two reasons.

First, some studies have linked insufficient melatonin with weight gain or hindered fatloss...

Also, when you sleep, levels of a hunger-related hormone called leptin surge, signaling to your body that you don't need to eat. Toss and turn all night, and your body won't produce the right amount of leptin--so you'll feel extra hungry the next day and be more prone to weight gain

3. Get Enough Exercise

Without regular exercise, your body won't produce and release the optimal amount of endorphins. They're the "feel-good" chemicals that make you feel positive and alert.

They also keep your immune system functioning well and increase levels of sex hormones so you score a libido lift. The more you move, the more endorphins your body will produce.

If you need some inspiration you're in luck...

[...Unfortunately for the guys though... this is only for the ladies!...]

My good friend Shawna K just released a brand new program called Female Fat Loss Over 40.

BTW - She's in her 50s and has the smokin' hot body of a woman in her 20s!

Shawna's system is based on scientific principles, designed to help manipulate hormones to create the perfect backdrop for women over 40 to burn massive calories quickly, and keep the weight off permanently.

She also develops your lean muscle tone. So you increase your metabolic rate, plus you shape beautiful curves in all the right places so you look fantastic in just about anything!...

And there's no excuse for ever missing a workout because they only take about 20 minutes, they're easy to follow, and Shawna guides you from start to finish with full-length instructional videos!

Listen, Shawna understands the unique issues of menopausal women and all it's challenges. She's worked with hundreds of women in this age category and has had shocking results.

I can't think of a single reason why ANY woman 40 or older would want to skip this opportunity ...
