There are many factors that contribute to weight gain, and one factor that is most overlooked by traditional diets is excess toxins in the body. More simply put, people often have difficulty losing weight because their bodies are full of toxins. The more toxins you take in or get exposed to every day, the more toxins you store as fat cells in the body. Toxins stored in fat cells are difficult to get rid of through dieting alone. You must first detoxify the body. When the body is overloaded with toxins, the body transfers its energy away from burning calories and uses that energy to work harder to detoxify the body. In other words, the body does not have the energy to burn calories. However, when the body is efficiently detoxifying and getting rid of toxins, the energy can be used to burn fat. In my new book Lose Weight Without Dieting or Working Out! I provide a 3-part system that starts with detoxification as the first step in helping you shed pounds.
Simply put, traditional diets so often don’t work because they don’t address the toxic waste in the body. Counting calories does not detoxify and cleanse the body. Weight loss won’t be permanent if your body’s systems are sluggish or impacted with waste matter or toxins. You must first rid your body of toxins if you want to get rid of excess fat in the body.
I believe the most effective weight-loss programs should focus on both fat loss and detoxification. Detoxification, which is the process of removing toxins from the body, is critical to losing fat because many of the toxins the body holds onto are stored in fat cells. So, by getting rid of toxins, you get rid of the fat cells in your body.Read more
If you want to lose weight in 2013, the BEST thing you can do is to STOP DIETING! Every year, about 20 new diets come out, but yet obesity rates continue to increase year after year. There is a very good reason that there are more diets introduced every year….that’s because it’s a billion dollar industry. Unfortunately, for 95% of the people on a diet, they’ll slowly gain all the weight back when they go off that diet! Don’t be a part of the 95 percent of people who lose weight on a diet and then gain all the weight back in three to five years.
You cannot lose weight permanently by strictly following any special diet, by taking a weight-loss pill, or by following a grueling exercise regimen. The good news is that anyone can lose weight and stay slim if he or she just understands, addresses, and corrects the hidden causes of weight gain. In order to succeed in the battle of the bulge, you have to realize that losing weight PERMANENTLY involves a “LIFESTYLE CHANGE” and NOT a new diet! (more…)Read more
We all know what belly fat is; we see it every day when we walk out of the house. Although it is very common, most people do not know that belly fat is the most dangerous fat on the body. Belly fat, known as visceral fat, is located behind your abdominal wall and surrounds your internal organs. Visceral fat typically shows as the belly fat/spare tire around the waist and mid-section. Even thin people can begin to store excess weight around the stomach and midsection. Visceral fat contains toxins and substances that are harmful to our health and can affect the nervous system and the endocrine (hormonal) system, which ends up affecting metabolism and appetite.
Most people do not know that belly fat is the most dangerous fat on the body. Because of where it’s located around the delicate organs, it has the potential to destroy good health, or worse yet, kill you. Because belly fat resides within striking distance of your heart, liver, and other organs, it is to blame for many health conditions. According to a 2006 study published in the journal Obesity, visceral fat is a significant predictor of early death. In other words, visceral fat means you have an increased risk for a shortened life. Even if you removed visceral fat via liposuction, it may cause you to look physically better, but it does little for improving your health because the dangers of visceral fat would still exist for you. The good news is that even a minimal amount of physical activity and dietary changes will go a long way in shrinking visceral fat.
Studies have shown that exposing yourself to an excessive amount of environmental toxins increases belly fat. Thus, a very effective way to address this visceral fat/belly fat is to eliminate toxins from the body. Detoxifying the body and eliminating toxins can be accomplished through various detoxification methods. Detoxification is a total-body cleansing process that removes toxins from the body. Detoxification is critical to losing fat because many of the toxins the body holds onto are stored in fat cells. In my new book, Lose Weight Without Dieting or Working Out!. I share ten ways to detoxify the body including Colonics, Saunas, Body Brushing and many others so that you can reduce the toxic overload and reduce belly fat.
