Weight Loss

There is a HUGE amount of conflicting information out there about weight loss. So let’s explain a few things:

For you to successfully lose weight, two things have to happen:

» Your body’s metabolism needs to be working efficiently
» You need a program that is right for you!!

What slows down your metabolism?

We call them METABOLIC ROAD BLOCKS. They include:

Insulin Resistance – results in high Insulin levels which cause weight gain and inhibit fat-burning hormones

Stress – ongoing stress promotes hormones such as Cortisol which inhibit fat burning and lead to muscle breakdown and increased fat stores.

Allergies – food and environmental allergens will affect the immune, digestive and hormone systems, thus limiting weight loss and promoting fat storage.

Toxicity – an overloaded liver will be inefficient in several of its functions, including fat burning, promoting good digestion and removing fat-promoting hormones.

Nutritional factors – to maintain a healthy metabolism, you must have adequate levels of B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, essential fatty acids and thyroid nutrients such as iodine and selenium.

Hormones – typically, people with weight issues may have a basic hormone imbalance. The major hormones involved in weight loss or gain are thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones, insulin, oestrogen and progesterone. For weight loss to be effective and LONG-TERM, we need to address the balance between all of these hormones.

Biochemical imbalances -many people have ‘glitches’ or weaknesses in their energy production and fat-burning processes in the body. They may also have nutrient or amino acid deficiencies which reduce their ability to metabolise and transport fats. The result is a slower metabolism and weight gain.

What are the essential components for weight loss?

  • A healthy eating plan that suits YOU and your lifestyle
  • Correcting nutritional deficiencies
  • Correcting biochemical ‘glitches’
  • Removal of allergens
  • Some regular exercise – aerobic and resistance
  • Stress management
  • Gentle detoxification and reduction of toxic exposure
  • Restoration of hormone balance and levels
  • Balancing of blood glucose levels and reducing insulin resistance
  • Addressing emotional issues hindering weight loss
  • Having a good weight loss coach.
