3 Factors Affecting Your Weight

Are you struggling to lose the extra few pounds and you’ve tried everything?

 

As a health professional I look at the big picture… what is really going on around you.

We tend to focus only on the problem for example “I need to lose weight”, “Look at this tummy fat”  etc.

Take a step back and say… what would be a solution to this problem?  Is it really more exercise or do you really need to change other areas of your life?

Below are some key areas… which ones do you need to hone your focus?

What is going on Physically?

  • Inflammation
  • Genetics
  • Metabolism (inherited, age, gender)
  • Thyroid Function

What is going on in your Lifestyle?

  • Diet – Do you have addictions with certain foods?  Eating every 3-4 hours, (cereal and coffee is not a breakfast)
  • Exercise
  • Stress – Cortisol response
  • General Health – Sleep, Relationships, Work/Personal, Feeling Happy

What is going on in your brain a.k.a Physiological Factors?

  • Self-Discipline
  • Self-Image
  • Self-Control
  • Body Image
  • Traumatic Experience
  • Personality Issues
  • Mental Health (anorexia, bulimia, depression)

If you find one or more of these areas then it should be a wake up call to focus on it and improve it!

When is the last time you had a blood work up including: CBC, Hormone – Testosterone/Estrogen, HGH, DHEA profiles
Blood Pressure is the most important in how well you’re doing

Other studies to consider are: Nuclear Study w/EKG, CRP – C Reactive Protein, Homocysteine, Thyroid, T1,T3, T4 levels, Food Sensitivities different from Allergies.  You would be surprised (wheat, wheat gluten, dairy, among others)

Hidden Factors are part of the above 3 Factors.

  • Fatigue is the root of all disease  aka Metabolic Burnout
  • Do you have an old bed or pillow?
  • Medications are a huge factor because side-effects are true people!!   Ask your doctor how to lower them!   One of them might be insomnia.
  • Do you eat foods with High Fructose Corn Syrup, Hydrogenated Oils, Trans Fats, Wheat Gluten.
  • Have you ever done at least a 3 day Detox then 7-day Detox  to help your Liver and Digestive Tract.
  • Candidiasis or Leaky Gut Syndrome?
  • Side Note: Healthy People don’t use medical drugs, get fat or see doctors all the time.

All these factors have a solution and as a health professional I’m here to assist you.
