Natural Health Weight-Loss Centers is now NutriMost Castleton.
Nothing changed, but the name.
The media bombards everyone with the image of health and fitness they think is ideal. Weight loss programs are abundant. The problem is these programs try to squeeze you into a box and mold you to the one-size-fits-all image of health. We each are unique as is our expression of life and health. Let’s look at the main focus of the top weightloss and diet programs. Then discuss how breakthrough technology allows a customized plan to be created for you.
You have to count calories to lose weight. The majority of weight loss and diet programs have this principle at their core. If you lower caloric intake and increase your activity level, you will lose weight. Is this true? Absolutely! The common solution is to either plan a diet with certain foods to restrict your daily calories or provide pre-packaged food from a box. Here is the problem regardless which path you take to get there: You will gain your lost weight right back. As you lower your caloric intake, your metabolism begins to slow. It has less work to do. Your body needs calories to fuel it so it will burn fat, muscle, etc. The problem appears after the weight is
lost. Eventually you will go back to eating a normal, sustainable amount of food each day. Since your metabolism has nearly bottomed out though, it can’t process all the food you are eating. Those calories get stored right back as fat.
Calories are not the key to losing weight. The most effective way to lose fat is balancing hormones, neurotransmitters, detoxifying the body and balancing vitamins and minerals in a way to get you into an incredible fat burning zone. Technology allows every cause of your
weight gain to be determined and corrected including: metabolism, fat burning, fat storage, appetite, microbes, detoxification, and hormonal regulation. Since all of the factors concerning weight are being corrected, once you have achieved your target weight, your metabolism and weight set point are reset. This system creates a personalized and customized means to lose fat permanently.
Some people choose to lose weight to have better health or look stunning at the pool. Did you know there is a financial reward for losing weight? Now that obesity is affecting more than 72 million adults in the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are researching the link from extra body weight to diabetes and heart disease.
They found that an obese person has almost $1,500 more in medical costs each year than someone in a healthy weight range. Being overweight increases risk for many health conditions causing more visits to the doctor’s office and more medications.
Many life insurance plans require a physical exam and the results can cost you a fortune in premiums. Some companies look strictly at BMI or body mass to determine if a lifestyle surcharge should be applied to the premium. While the majority of life insurance policies are
under group or company names, no one can be certain what the future may bring regarding policy renewals and cost.
Barbara O’Neill, a professor and specialist in finance resource management at Rutgers University, says “studies have found that discrimination based on weight in the work place is more prevalent for women than men, especially white women in professional occupations.” Although many people wouldn’t associate wages and promotions with obesity, there is definitely a correlation, especially in a tough economic environment.
Don’t procrastinate on your weight loss attempts. The best time to start is right now. Let your wallet gain a little weight while you start transforming your life and your health.
Based on the World Health Organization’s 2012 Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Report
Are you struggling to lose weight, especially around the abdomen, hips, and thighs? Carrying excess fat in these areas is a strong sign of a hormone imbalance. Unfortunately, no amount of exercise or dieting can correct the problem unless balance is restored. Hormones are in
charge of all facets of weight gain and loss: They control your metabolism, fat storage, fat burning, your cravings, etc. The hormone imbalance is caused by something called endocrine disrupting chemicals, or EDCs. They are prevalent all over and have been found to be so directly connected to obesity that the World Health Organization has labeled that subset as “obesogens.”
Any substance that interferes with the function of the hormone, or endocrine, system and negatively affects health is an endocrine disruptor. There are nearly 800 different chemicals that fit this description. “Obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome are due to disruption of the energy storage-energy balance endocrine system.” A new class of endocrine disrupting chemicals, “obesogens,” includes the substances shown to alter components of the hormonal system that control weight gain such as adipose tissue, the brain, the liver, the pancreas, skeletal muscle, and the gastrointestinal tract. The chemicals also interrupt functionality of metabolism, fat storage, bone development, and the immune system.
As of 2007, 30% of Americans were clinically obese and 65% were overweight. Additionally, it is estimated that more than 6 out of 10 children are either already obese or will be later in life. Although obesity is a result of genetic, behavioral, and environmental components, it is ultimately controlled by the endocrine system. If there are disrupting chemicals preventing communication regulating fat development, hunger, pleasure-related reward mechanisms, fat burning, insulin, and body weight; no amount of exercise and diet can correct the problem. “Obesogens” can increase the number of fat cells, change the reward center of the brain to affect appetite, alter food metabolism, change insulin sensitivity, etc. These disruptions cause imbalance in the hormone system and change set points predisposing people to obesity.
Data suggests exposure to BPA (in plastics), several pesticides, air pollution, lead, nicotine, MSG, and many pharmaceuticals lead to altered cholesterol metabolism and weight gain. Many shampoos and hair products, toothpaste, soaps, and lotions contain chemicals as
solvents, preservatives, plasticizers, antimicrobials, and fragrances. Medical drugs for contraception, hormone therapies, fat regulators, beta-blockers, anti-depressants, and anti-biotics are made with endocrine disrupting chemicals. Household cleaners, toys, electronics, furniture, building materials, paints, paper, clothing, lawn & garden supplies, and pesticides contain elements that cause imbalance in the body’s hormone system. These chemicals are powerful inducers of adipogenesis (fat formation) increasing weight gain and obesity.
Health, hormones, and your ideal weight can all be restored. Determining the exact endocrine imbalances can be done with advanced technology. Correcting the underlying cause allows the body to clear out toxins, burn excess adipose (fat), and restore balance to hormones, microbes, and neurotransmitters.
