Is weight loss alluding you despite your best efforts? Weight loss comes easiest when tackling it on four fronts: healthy diet, exercise, studying your family genetics, and understanding your specific biology.
What we eat has a profound impact on our health, most notably our waistlines. If your body is lacking in sufficient nutrients, it has a branching effect on your wellness. Poor diets lead to:
Hypertension and high cholesterol
At Palm Beach Health Center, we can analyze your diet's impact on you by testing your nutrition. Doing so can lend insight into improving your diet, which may decrease the challenges you've been facing.
Additionally, diets and hormones go hand-in-hand. The food and drinks you consume can either promote or degrade the production of crucial hormones, primarily affecting sex hormones.
Suppose you eat well, aren't predisposed to obesity, and your hormones are balanced. You may still wonder why you can't shed a few pounds. A reason for this may be due to insufficient physical exertion.
Working a 9-5 desk job not only can aggravate your spine, causing you to need chiropractic adjustments, it can make it hard to find gym time. To live a healthy life, the average adult should exercise for a half-hour daily. Those seeking to lose weight strive for an hour or more. If it's easier, break up your workout into 30-minute intervals to fit it into your schedule.
Insulin, cortisol, testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen are all directly affected by each dietary decision we make. Insulin fluctuations can lead to diabetic concerns. Low or high cortisol levels may trigger depression. Lastly, hormonal dysfunction has many complications, one of them being weight gain.
We have many avenues in which to treat hormone imbalance. Regardless of age, each phase of life brings new stress to the body. Frequently, the stress results in a deficiency which hormonal replacement therapy can naturally correct with bioidentical alternatives.
Over countless studies, researchers and scientists show that hundreds of genetically inherited genes can predispose people to obesity. Until last year, there has been no clear-cut treatment form. However, the FDA did approve a possible solution in 2020, so hope remains for a breakthrough.
Metabolisms perform two key functions, anabolic and catabolic. Catabolic functions break down, and anabolic builds up. As we eat, it becomes broken down, and the output is energy. Energy comes in the form of fats and glucose (sugar).
Diets play a key role in metabolic speed, which affects weight. As fat breaks down, the body uses some energy immediately while the lion share is stored to use later. So, consuming fat directly leads to weight gain.
Limiting fat alone is not enough, though, as large meals will slow your body's speed to process food. A healthy diet consists of a balance between calories in and calories out. To lose weight, you'll need to expend more calories than you intake.
To recap, to speed up your metabolism in efforts to lose weight, you'll need to:
Consume a balanced diet
Exercise at least an hour a day
Ensure you have hormone balance
Have a clean genetical health report
The reason we mention all of these other concerns is to make you aware of the possibility that your weight gain is a result of something greater. Therefore, to address your primary concern, we need to address the issue at the source.
Tackling the source of the dysfunction is what sets us apart. Instead of issuing weight loss supplements or fad diets that starve you of nutrients, we correct issues holistically. Without medicine, we generate efficient and lasting results in many of our patients. We invite you to experience the difference firsthand.
