What happens to the average American’s weight as they age? They tend to put on more weight year after year. When that happens, the first thing they do is look at diet and make changes. That’s a great first step! Next, they start working out more, which is another important thing to do for your health.
However, when you change your diet and work out, but don’t lose weight, you will feel discouraged. Then, you resort to different types of diets, calorie restriction, and longer exercise routines.
It’s easy to feel like a failure and that you simply aren’t working hard enough to get results. You’ve seen other people get results from similar efforts, but you just can’t lose the weight.
There is another explanation of why you are holding onto weight, instead of releasing it. Cell inflammation can be the reason you’re not seeing the scales move.
Here’s how inflammation can keep you from reaching your goals.
Hormones Affect Weight Loss
Every cell in your body has two layers of fat on the outside and countless receptors for all of your hormones, all of your nutrients, all of your emotions. Do you know the hormone that tells your body to burn fat for fuel? It’s called Leptin.
How Cell Inflammation Inhibits Leptin Production
What does cell inflammation and leptin have to do with each other? When your cells get inflamed, your hormones get burnt out and they can’t work anymore. It’s kind of like when you’re talking on the cell phone and you lose the call. It’s not because your phone’s a piece of trash. The problem was the reception.
If your leptin receptor is working properly, your body is screaming to burn fat for fuel. However, when the receptor is burnt out, the body can’t get the message. The body can’t burn fat for fuel because the receptor isn’t getting the signal. As you can see, this has nothing to do with all those diets you’ve been keeping.
What Causes Cellular Inflammation?
Cellular inflammation could be the reason you’re not losing weight, no matter what you do. To combat this issue, you must identify what’s causing the inflammation and remove it from your daily routine.
There are the top three causes of cellular inflammation:
Toxins are the number one cause of the inflammation that causes hormone resistance, which prevents weight loss.
2. Sugars and Grains
Sugar has already been proven to lead to inflammation in the body. However, grains can be a culprit as well, because it turns into sugar in your body in about four seconds. One study showed that people who drank one can of soda every day for six months had higher levels of uric acid. Those levels triggered inflammation in the body.
3. Bad Fats
Eating bad fats such as margarine, shortening, vegetable oils, commercially fed beef, can cause inflammation. HEALTHY fat is the #1 most lacking ingredient in the SAD standard American diet.
In order to reduce cellular inflammation, you need to change what you are eating and your environment. I offer a cellular detox to help my clients figure out what’s causing their body to respond with inflammation and implement the changes they need to make.
I hope that right now you feel like this huge emotional burden has been lifted off of you as you realize that your weight problems can be solved. When you have the right tools and knowledge, you can increase your health.
