Is low progesterone causing WEIGHT GAIN?! As you know, the hormonal balance in a woman’s body is so crucial to overall health. Often times we overlook the importance it plays in a healthy weight as well. Our hormones are like a SYMPHONY, when one is off it can ruin the whole thing.
Let’s talk about the causes of low progesterone:

- Low body weight (anovulation)
Here are the SIGNS:
- Weight Gain

So what can you do about it? First, have a good MD. Second, eat lots of healthy fats, proteins, leafy greens, etc. Exercise, STRESS LESS, eat more foods with zinc, like shellfish, and increase your intake of vitamins B and C, which are necessary for maintaining progesterone levels.
