2. Estrogen Imbalance

There are many women with an overabundance of estrogen. An excess of estrogen usually shows up as excess weight around the hips and the waist, your body’s way of protecting a fetus, should you become pregnant.

When you exercise to excess or exercise on a daily basis, you are using up your progesterone and allowing your estrogen to dominate your hormones.

Balance your hormones naturally by exercising, but not to excess, or try exercising every other day.

Also, avoid those omega-6 fats like peanut, soybean or other vegetable oils, use coconut oil instead and be sure you are getting enough rest.
