It’s Not Your Fault!
Most people don’t understand the body and how it functions! The body is a highly complex organism that is ALWAYS striving to reach homeostasis. That’s another word for balance!
The topic of weight loss is on just about everyone’s mind. Whether you have a little to lose, a lot to use, or are striving to maintain, you are always thinking about it. This is because we are immersed in a sea of weight loss advertisements! “Eat this,” “Come to this gym,”, “Take this amazing supplement”, “Get this procedure done”, etc., etc., but does any of it work?
For the most part – NO! And why is that? Because non of these do anything to correct the REAL problem!
Let’s step back and consider how the body works. Most people think of two things when it comes to weight loss, DIET and EXCERCISE, or calories in versus calories out, but this is not true! But how can that be, you say? Well we all know people who can eat anything and everything and not gain an ounce! As well as folks that are always on a strict diet, and not losing an ounce! What’s up with that? Obviously there is more to the story!
It has to do with hormones! But before we get into how that works, we must go back and look at cellular inflammation, (discussed in an earlier posting). Hormones are the way the body communicates between organs and systems, to maintain homeostasis! When the cell membranes get inflamed, that affects the cell’s hormone receptors, causing the cell to become “deaf”, unable to sense or respond to the hormone signals that are presented to it.
The components of the cell membrane.
Simplified example, when your brain senses (hypothalamus) too much sugar in the blood, it tells your pancreas to generate more insulin, which enters your blood and signals your cells to let the sugar inside to burn it for fuel. However if the cell membrane is inflamed, the cell doesn’t “hear” the signal and ignores it. This causes a feedback system to come into play causing more insulin to be secreted because the sugar level didn’t subside. And because one of the things that causes cellular inflammation is SUGAR, this becomes a runaway situation – Diabetes!
There are two main things that the body can use for energy, sugar and fat (also protein in an emergency situation), and fat is the preferred source. Guess what – burning fat for energy is controlled by a hormone! A hormone called Leptin, which is actually generated by fat tissue! So the more fat you have in your body, the greater the Leptin generation, and you remain thin! What a system!
Leptin was first discovered by Jeffery Friedman in 1994. People said “we can be rich if this will cause people to lose weight!” But it didn’t work, obese people already had high levels of leptin due to their high levels of fat!
If your cells are inflamed, they don’t get the memo, because their receptors are blunted, and you remain overweight, no matter what you do! This is why people have such problems losing weight, because they are not addressing the cause – Cellular Inflammation“.
So what causes cellular inflammation? Three things, bad fats, toxins and SUGAR. If we eliminate, or drastically reduce our exposure to these, and provide the correct nutrients to the body, the cells will heal and we will lose the weight! (Homeostasis) How simple is that! The difficult part is doing it because we are immersed in a sea of toxins, and our common foods are full of bad fats and sugars! Yes, it may be difficult, but certainly NOT impossible!
There exists a cellular healing diet and correct supplementation that will expedite the process of cellular healing, and weight loss. Also the mitigation of ALL chronic diseases that we currently are suffering from, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer! And when you combine this with proper exercise, and the proper spiritual health, (body, mind, spirit) things really start happening!
