If you look at the accompanying photo, it should be clear that Emma is making a declaration.


So pay attention pal.


I use something called โ€˜reality mathโ€™ first and foremost when I am on my quest for learning and education.


Nothing beats real world experience and results.


Iโ€™ve been harping on now for 7 years that weight loss and muscle building is more about the hormones of your body than anything else.


Yet, so many canโ€™t overcome the strong tide of โ€˜calories in, calories outโ€™.


Here are a few simple instances of hormones running the showโ€ฆ


-What causes one to overeat with stress eating? Is it the calories that cause you to eat too much or eat foods that donโ€™t serve the body? Nope, itโ€™s hormones and a desire for the body to get out of the stressed state, so it turns to food as a drug to have a calming effect. Stress causes hormones to spike, that the body doesnโ€™t find all that pleasant so it looks for something to soothe it and bam, stress eating.


-Speaking of stress eating, cortisol, your main alertness hormone, can be used to build or to burn. When we are in a rested state and sleeping well, cortisol will help to burn body fat. When we are in a fatigued and stressed state, cortisol will cause us to gain fat. Two different effects, same hormone.


-What causes kids to grow? The calories they eat? Nope. Itโ€™s growth hormone. Growth hormone and growth rate will determine appetite. For kids, growth hormone makes them grow taller, for adults, insulin makes us grow wider.


-Lastly, if you wanted to know the one thing that you should add in now if leaning up for the summer was your goal, Iโ€™d unequivocally say โ€˜better and/or more sleepโ€™. Why? Because it regulates all hormones and stress responses within the body.


There you go, a little reality math for you.


Connect the dots, rewire your brain.
