Root Cause Weight Loss

Weight Loss Blocks Image

There is a reason why a 'one size fits all' diet, calorie counting, and exercise don't work for permanent weight loss. I created this blog compilation, so that you can discover why the answer to your weight woes, is to first stop focusing on your weight and instead put your health first.

Right now your body is holding on to fat for a reason. And that's to get your attention. Your body speaks to you through symptoms. Your extra body fat is not the cause of you being overweight, it's a symptom.

I repeat, your extra body fat is a symptom, not a cause.

If you keep fighting the symptom, you are actually just driving the cause in deeper and making things worse.

Weight loss is rarely as simple as 'eat less & move more'. There are 8 physiological blocks to weight loss that have nothing at all to do with calories or exercise. In this blog compilation, I've summarized and compiled them with links to learn more.

Digestive System - When you can't digest your food properly, it contributes to the overgrowth of bad bacteria and nutrient deficiencies. This leads to cravings, an overburdened liver (and pancreas) and eventually trouble with elimination and blood sugar too.

Sex Hormones - When your hormones are out of balance, it causes mood swings, emotional eating, bloating, water retention, cravings and both digestive & elimination stress.

Elimination System - When you can't go to the bathroom properly, you can;t eliminate toxins, and this overburdens your liver. This increases estrogen dominance, compromises the thyroid and makes it unsafe to release stored body fat.

Sluggish Liver - A sluggish liver cannot optimally balance hormones or safely break down fat. Both fat digestion and peristalsis are compromised, leading to constipation and even more internally generated toxicity - which sets the stage for to inflammation.

Inflammation - Unresolved digestive issues eventually become more severe and chronic, causing leaky gut syndrome and then systemic inflammation. Leaky gut causes food sensitivities and autoimmunity, muscle and joint pain (kinda hard to exercise), water retention (feels like fat) and increasing severity of digestive issues.

Nervous System - When a person is chronically stressed, this shuts down the digestive and elimination system and triggers excessive cortisol, leading to inflammation and eventually adrenal burn out. Exercise will be to no avail and will actually make the situation worse.

Endocrine System - People who have endured a lot of chronic stress, whether from life situations or health struggles (such as the previously mentioned ones and others), can end up with adrenal fatigue and symptoms of low thyroid. making for a very slow metabolism.

Blood Sugar - Blood sugar symptoms show that one is sliding down the slippery slope of insulin resistance. This puts the body in a state where it pretty much wants to store everything you eat as fat. You need to get out of this state before your body will release the weight.

By now, you probably get that it's probably more than one organ or body system imbalance that has come together to culminate into your weight loss resistance. That's why a 'one size fits all' diet, calorie counting, and exercise don't work for permanent weight loss. Your unique combination of body system imbalances, must be addressed simultaneously to achieve optimal health. By putting your health first, you can end your struggles with your weight as well!
