After 25 years in the Nutritional Supplement Industry I have seen so many diets come and go. I don’t and never did believe that one size fits all.
Most of the participates in all my weight loss seminars/groups have always thought the reason everyone gains weight is because they eat more and exercise less, everyone believed that calories in vs calorie burned equation for weight loss made sense. But as time went on this did not hold true.
Most people have watched The Biggest Loser several years ago and witnessed some people lost 20 pounds in a week. This included tough motivating trainers, strict meals plans and killer work outs but overtime 13 of the 14 contestants gained on average 66% of the weight they’d lost and some became heavier than when they were on the show.
Finding answers to the weight-loss puzzle has never been more critical. The vast majority of North Americans are overweight with nearly 40% being clinically obese. We all know that excess body fat increases the risk of serious health problems, including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, depression, major cancers and even fertility problems. A 2017 study found that obesity now drives more early preventable deaths in the U.S. than smoking. This has fueled the weight-loss industry worth $72 billion, selling everything from diet pills, meals and expensive gym memberships. Research is showing that the key to weight loss appears to be highly personalized rather than just jumping on a trendy diet. And although weight-loss will never be easy for anyone the evidence is mounting that it’s possible for anyone to reach a healthy weight. People just need to find their best way there.
Dieting has been a preoccupation for over a hundred years. The Grapefruit Diet was very popular in the 1930’s and the reason is people would eat a half grapefruit with every meal because the grapefruit contained fat-burning enzymes. One of the reasons our BeautyBodyHome Beauty & Wellness Detox Kit has Digestive Detox as an important part of the plan. Digestive Detox contains all the enzymes (and so much more) to breakdown proteins, fats & carbohydrates. Taken 30 minutes prior to your meals Digestive Detox does so much more has the enzymes are only one part of the amazing ingredients. One of the main ingredients in Digestive Detox is Lipase which breaks down fat.
Losing weight and keeping it off is hard, but it is possible and when people do it, their lives are changed for the better.
Weight Gain & Chemicals
There is a link between weight gain and chemicals we are exposed to everyday. Substances like (BPA) bisphenol A found in linings of canned goods and cash register receipts, the flame retardants in sofa and mattresses, the pesticides residues on our food and the phthalates found in plastics and cosmetics. These chemicals mimic human hormones and wreaking havoc while driving fat storage. Chemicals can disrupt hormones and metabolism which can contribute to disease. Scientist today are also exploring how the microbiome – the trillions of bacteria that live inside and on the surface of the human body, may be influencing how the body metabolizes what we eat.
It is my belief and has been for over 25 years in business that digesting your food and eliminating the toxins our body doesn’t use is an important combination to assist your body in losing weight naturally. If you don’t digest your meal and you are not able to break it down, then the body will store that meal. If you don’t eliminate properly everyday then the body will store those toxins as well.
