When it comes to exercise, nutrition and medicine, it has long been assumed that women are just smaller versions of men. Common sense would tell you this is not true... but in spite of this, very little research has been done specifically on women in these areas. This seems crazy given women make up about 50% of the population.
Limi Power is specialist in women's training and nutrition to support your hormonal balance and give you the chance to reach your full potential. We are working with your body, not against it.
Importance of Hormon Balance
Hormones are chemical messengers that help to regulate our mental, physical and emotional health. For example, they play an important role in controlling our appetite, weight and mood. They help control many of the body’s processes including metabolism and reproduction. Certain medical conditions (such as PCOS or thyroid disorders), age and lifestyle or dietary patterns can cause an imbalance in hormones.
Eating the right amount of different nutrients, including macronutrients (fats, carbs and protein) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) is important to help our body to create the right amount of hormones.
Possible signs of a hormonal imbalance include:
Irregular or infrequent periods
Unintended weight gain or loss
Fatigue and low energy levels
Decreased sex drive
Water retention or a feeling of ‘puffiness’
Excess hair growth
Hot flushes or night sweats
(Peri) Meno Pause
Many women think it is normal to gain weight and having a challenging time, with hormonal changes.
Working with us can support you to make dietary changes that optimise your health and wellbeing in this stage of life, including preserving lean muscle mass, eating anti-inflammatory foods and reduce your risk of developing metabolic conditions such as high cholesterol, insulin resistance or impaired glucose tolerance..
