For years, you have been trying to improve your weight, but despite your best efforts, your body just does not want to cooperate. You have invested so much time and money trying many diet and exercise regimens, yet none has helped. You lose the weight and then reach that miserable plateau. "Experts" offer advice, which are contradictory at best. And if you don't lose weight, the assumption is that you are simply "not trying hard enough", or "you are eating too much, or "it's your fault", or told to "eat less, exercise more" ... the list goes on.
Sound familiar? You're not alone.
Here's some sobering stats:
In the 1960s, the average American male between the ages of 40 and 45 weighed 169 lbs.
In 2000, that weight was 196 lbs, nearly 30 lbs heavier.
Today, nationwide, roughly two out of three U.S. adults are overweight or obese (69 percent).
One out of three is obese (36 percent).
One out of six children and adolescents ages 2 to 19 are obese and one out of three are overweight or obese.
Most people still believe that managing body weight is simply a matter of calories in (via diet) and calories out (via exercise). Plenty of people who are obese and are in need to lose weight say they are sick and tired of being told to eat less and exercise more. Well, they would be right...and for good reason: A growing body of research finds lifestyle and behavioral modifications often are not enough to help someone drop a significant amount of weight and keep it off.
Ignoring these biological factors and continuing to rely on behavioral modification (e.g., eat less, exercise more) will result in failure to achieve long lasting and sustainable weight loss.
Then, why are we gaining weight faster than ever before?
Join us on Thursday October 13 where I take you on a journey and deconstruct the issues behind weight loss. You will learn:
Why following mainstream recommendations of reducing calories or carbohydrates, or even increasing the intensity of exercise, can negatively impact your weight (and health) in the long run.
How calorie counting and overexercising can stress your body, leading to disruption in blood sugar balance and adrenal function, accelerating weight gain.
It doesn't matter how much you exercise or don't eat, cortisol at the wrong time puts your body into survival mode, facilitating fat storage.
(This is a biggy): The role of hormones in weight management and why do women gain so much unwanted weight after menopause.
The role of sleep in weight loss (Yeap...I bet you didn't know that sleep plays a HUGE role). Sleep is regulated by the cortisol patterns during the day. We look into how to reset your body's natural sleep-wake cycle. This alone can have drastic effects on managing body weight.
Why 80% to 95% of weight loss patients fail to keep their weight off long-term by following most trendy weight loss centers and doctors’ recommendations.
Why I believe that your focus should be only on WHY you gained weight and not HOW to lose it.
See you October 13,
