4. You’re not eating organic.
Hormones dictate how efficient your body is at using energy from the foods you eat. Everyday your body tries to balance your reproductive, thyroid and growth hormones, appetite, insulin and hunger hormones (leptin and ghrelin) to keep you lean and energized. However, those tasks can become increasingly more difficult to your body as hormone residues from non-organic produce disrupts your body’s natural balance. To give your metabolism an advantage try to eat as much organic foods as you can (3) and reduce your exposure to pesticides.
