For people who have a weight-induced hormonal imbalance or are in the obese category, losing weight becomes the first and foremost goal in achieving a healthier body.
In people with conditions such as thyroid, polycystic ovary syndrome, and other hormonal problems, weight loss becomes quite hard due to endocrine disruption.
People who suffer from these conditions can exercise the same amounts as a normal person, but end up not getting any results, in contrast to normal people who would see results.
We bring you five exercises that will hit the scale and help you lose weight.
