What we’ve realized, after asking hundreds of patients what they think the root cause of their weight gain may be, we have found out that they have no idea. Most of the time we hear things like, they are eating too much and moving too little. Don't we all wish it was that simple!
The truth is, there are 8 root causes of weight gain.
But before we pull back the curtain on how to correct these causes let’s take a brief look of what he are up against.
So in order to lose weight and gain health you must address the root cause of your weight gain and have the correct accountability and support. Let us show you how blueprint to weight loss provides both.
When it comes down to it, we have to get down to the basics and address the root causes that we are about to discuss to achieve the permanent weight loss desired. Over the course of our program we will be teaching your mind and body how to burn fat instead of sugar, eliminate the cravings and lower stress while increasing energy.
So let’s expose the 8 root causes of your weight gain so we can show you exactly what to do about them so your weight loss efforts and goals become permanent.
With our three phases of care approach we will address Candida, Toxicity, Thyroid, Hunger Hormones, Sleep, Stress, Brain-Based Food Cravings, and Food Management.
The thyroid has a big job. The hormones it secretes help maintain a healthy heart rate, maintain healthy skin, and play a crucial role in your metabolism. When the gland is sluggish, due to candida, as we just discussed, it can rob you of your energy, dry out your skin, and make your joints ache. Those are all undesirable symptoms, but what we’re specifically talking about here is that it can cause dramatic weight gain.
When we mentioned hormones in this program we are not talking about progesterone, testosterone and estrogen. Although they do play a role in weight gain, but ghrelin, leptin, adiponectin, insulin and cortisol are hormones that truly are the missing link when it comes to achieving permanent weight loss. These hormones give us feedback on things like the feeling of fullness, appetite, energy balance, and fat storage.
Research suggests an association between sleep restriction and negative changes in metabolism. In adults, sleeping 4 hours a night, compared to 8-10 hours a night, appears to increase hunger and appetite particularly for calorie-dense foods high in carbohydrates.
Experts have agreed that stress management is a critical part of weight loss regimens, particularly in those who have a busy life with jobs, families and other responsiblities. Another overlooked aspect of stress and weight loss is not just the emotional stress, its the oxidative stress as well. As fat storage expands when the body gets inflamed so we of course address the stress inflammation response in our program.
Brain Based Food Cravings
We have been raised to think that food cravings come from a simple desire to eat that specific food. But most of the time, it’s a signal from your body that there is a deficiency of some sort, a nutritional need or an imbalance in your body and/or brain chemistry.
You will see just how easy it can be to get your clean eating on track. Whether you want to lose a few pounds or get back to your ideal weight, eating proper portions is as important as eating the right foods.
