Steroid hormones must be balanced for healthy metabolism. Fat loss depends on testosterone levels both in men and women. This article, cited below, explains the importance of testosterone for fat loss.
Testosterone is commonly associated with male sexual health and body building, but studies indicate that it plays an important part in the metabolism of fat.
If you have hormone imbalance, you can get back in balance with diet and supplements. The key is to know your starting point. If you are overweight, it is almost a certainty that you are low in testosterone. If you sleep poorly or not enough, the certainty increases. Fat loss happens naturally when you sleep well, eat well, and keep your testosterone levels up.
Great pointer, eh?
