Why Am I Overweight?
Ask yourself these questions:
- How does the body function?
- Do you have to get healthy to lose weight or do you have to lose weight to get healthy?
Well, let’s go over some basic facts.
The truth is a healthy person cannot be overweight. That’s right, I’ll say it again. A healthy person cannot be overweight! The human body operates, heals, regenerates and fights diseases with proper nutrition NOT medication. Many years prior, we were able to gain the proper nutrition from our foods however, today is a totally different story. Our soil in North America alone is depleted by 55%. In addition to that they are typically doused with chemicals such as pesticides and preservatives. What that means is that the foods we grow do not have the sufficient amount of nutrients to properly nourish the human body. So 90% of the population will need quality supplements to give their body the proper amount of nutrition it needs to maintain true wellness.
There is a major controversy regarding Politically Correct Nutrition. There is a lot of false information about what foods to eat. The key is education. The more knowledge you gain about the foods you consume, the less you have to depend on listening to advertisements that make false claims about what is good and nutritious for you.
The Diet Trends
How many “diets” have you been on? South Beach Diet? Atkins Diet? Weight Watchers Diet? The Cookie Diet? What do these ALL have in common? They do not correct the underlying health condition that made you overweight in the first place. If this is not detected and corrected with nutrition, you will not receive the health benefits from great nutrition and you will gain the weight back because you are looking at the wrong target. The target is not to lose weight but merely to get healthy. The weight will come off and most importantly, STAY off!
Everyone’s body is different and that is where we come in. We have a unique method of evaluating a patient and from there, we can pin point where any health issue is coming from. After the problem is found,we can tailor a nutritional program for your body type and not a “one-size-fits-all” diet.
Handling your health in this way can offer many more health benefits along with losing weight. Some of those benefits include, an increase in natural energy, quality organ function, mental clarity, improvement in hair & skin appearance, normalizing blood pressure, normalizing cholesterol, stabilizing blood sugar and metabolism, balancing hormones, etc.
