Hormones play a role in every process of the body. That includes how fat is stored and where it settles. According to Marla Ahlgrimm, your hormones may be the reason you can’t lose those last few inches from your waist.
Marla Ahlgrimm explains thyroid hormones are the body’s energy conversion overlords. The three types of thyroid hormone must function as one in order for metabolism to do its fat-burning magic.

Likewise, growth hormone and acetylcholine work as metabolisms pit crew, rebuilding and repairing of muscle tissue overnight.
