Don’t these sound familiar? You bet! So here’s my suggestion:
If you want to get better: if you want to lose weight, keep your hair, stop the mood swings, end the bloating, sleep better, and have more energy, you first need to have your hormone levels checked so you can restore balance.
After I saw my doctor and had my hormone levels checked, I began adopting a series of lifestyle changes. Serious issues require serious actions. There is no way around it. But the rewards are well worth the work! (Read about how I started turning my life around in “I thought I had my life under control.”)
Here’s a partial list of my lifestyle modifications. I tweak them as I go along, and not all of them will be forever, but for now they are working for me. You will likely discover your own list of changes that work best for you.
