The obesity epidemic is still increasing, but the efforts to lose weight are declining. Weight loss is rarely successful when done in the traditional manner of trying to simply consume fewer calories, and many are simply giving up hope! Obesity is associated with an increase in all health problems, and is a very serious matter.
It’s now becoming apparent that gaining a healthy gut microbiome – having a healthy balance of bacteria in the intestines – is essential for the successful and permanent loss of excess body fat. As well, dealing with the high body burden of environmental toxicants is equally important for permanent weight management. Environmental pollutants actually alter metabolism so that fat is accumulated, which is why they are now labeled “obesegens.”
Successful weight loss and maintenance of a healthy weight requires detoxing the body, improving gut health, getting proper sleep to nurture our Circadian Rhythm, managing stress, increasing physical activity, and having all essential nutrients onboard so as to enable the body’s metabolic machinery to function optimally – to successfully burn fat!
This isn’t a simple process, but it is worth the effort – as living a life of optimized health brings with it a level joy and exuberance otherwise unattainable!
