–4– 5 Reasons You Can’t Lose Weight!
Battling excess weight can be one of the most frustrating, challenging, and emotionally draining experiences on earth. Despite the numerous diets, exercise regimens, and magic pills for weight loss, Americans continue to grow larger and larger year after year. More than two thirds of the adult population and one third of our children are now overweight. Obesity rates have tripled since the 1960s.
I believe that most overweight people are actually naturally thin. The body is complex and designed to maintain healthiness. The body is smarter than any diet pill or fad diet on the market.
If you just change your eating habits to align with your body’s natural ability to heal, stay slim, and have energy, you will never have to worry about weight again.
The truth is that nobody wants to be fat. Excess weight is due to a combination of factors that are often outside of one’s control, such as genetics, hormonal imbalances, or the poor quality Standard American Diet (SAD) readily available to us. It isn’t your fault that you have problems with your weight. Even if you have enough willpower to keep yourself from eating when your brain tells you that you’re hungry, you still may not be able to lose weight. There are so many other factors in play that cause you to gain weight. Until you understand the real reasons you gain weight, you will never be able to lose weight permanently. The key is to learn to naturally speed up your body’s fat-burning capabilities to help you lose weight effortlessly and get healthy.
The good news is that anyone can lose weight and stay slim if he or she just understands, addresses, and corrects the hidden causes of weight gain. In order to succeed in the battle of the bulge, you have to realize that losing weight involves a major lifestyle change.
There is no one simple reason why an individual may have trouble with his or her weight; in most cases, there are several reasons. I will share five reasons with you so you can understand how to assist your own body in becoming naturally thin and healthy.
–5– Reason #1: You Have Toxic Overload in Your Body Traditional diets so often don’t work because they don’t address the toxic waste in the body.
Simply counting calories does not detoxify and cleanse the body. Weight loss won’t be permanent if your body’s systems are sluggish or impacted with waste matter or if your organs are not functioning at peak performance. You must first rid your body of toxins to ensure that your body can best metabolize the food you eat without leaving excess waste which results in weight gain.
I was coaching a client a few weeks ago and she asked me a very poignant question: “JJ, why am I always sick and what’s making me fat?” I said, “That is the not the question of the day, but the question of the century.” Toxins make us fat and sick! And they are the missing piece to the puzzle as to why we can’t lose weight and why we feel unhealthy and tired!
What Are Toxins?
A toxin is any substance that irritates or creates harmful effects in the body or mind. Toxins are everywhere, and we are unknowingly filling our bodies with them every day. There are two types of toxins: environmental toxins and internal toxins.
Environmental toxins are found outside the body/mind and include pollutants, smog, medications, hormones/birth control pills, medications, household cleaners, food additives, pesticides.
Internal toxins are found inside the body/mind and include bacterial/yeast/fungal overgrowth, parasite infections, chronic worry or fear, food allergies, and dental or medical implants such as implants from cosmetic surgeries, joint replacements, or mercury dental fillings.
We live in a sea of toxins. You cannot avoid them, but you can help your body get rid of some of them. Every person on the planet contains residues of toxic chemicals or metals in their tissues.
Some 80,000 new chemicals have been introduced since the turn of the twentieth century, and most have never been tested for safety or for how they interact in the human body. Our air is –6– toxic; our water is polluted; our food is depleted of nutrients and packed with poisonous chemicals and hormones. Not only that, but our minds and hearts often get polluted also.
Toxins create a heavy burden in the body, which causes many of the body’s systems to malfunction. The buildup of toxins overwhelms the body’s vital organs and other systems, creating an array of health issues including fatigue, memory loss, premature aging, skin eruptions/acne, depression, arthritis, hormone imbalances, chronic fatigue, anxiety, emotional disorders, muscle and joint pain, cancers, heart disease, and much, much more.
As I gained weight in my thirties, I learned that although my metabolism was beginning to slow due to aging, that wasn’t the real reason why I couldn’t lose weight. I learned that my excess weight was not all fat; some of it was waste in my body—excess toxic waste caused by years of poor eating, leading to fluid retention and intestinal waste matter in my colon.
There’s no delicate way of putting this, but to some extent, we’re all toxic, which is one of the biggest reasons so many people are overweight. Just because you are overweight does not guarantee that you have toxic overload, and just because you are thin does not mean that you do not have a toxic overload. We have to evaluate our toxic overload individually regardless of whether we are slim or fat. However, it is rare that an overweight person who rids the body of excess toxins does not lose weight. Please know that getting rid of the fat by exercising or dieting doesn’t necessarily get rid of the toxins. Toxins just get reabsorbed by your body, creating new fat cells, which hinder your ability to lose weight permanently.
Toxic Overload in Your Body Toxic overload refers to the level of toxins found in tissues of the human body by analysis of the blood and urine. Toxins are stored in almost every tissue in the body including fat, skeletal muscle, bones, tendons, joints/ligaments, and visceral organs.
When the body is properly nourished and detoxified, its organs operate at peak performance.
However, whenever our elimination channels become clogged due to toxic overload and poor diet, we should follow a comprehensive detoxification program to improve its functioning.
First, to get a sense of what the toxic load is in your body, take the How Toxic Are You? quiz.
How Toxic Are You Quiz?
If you are dealing with fatigue, weight gain, chronic disease, inability to focus, or accelerated aging, you will want to take this quiz to determine if toxic overload in your body is the underlying cause. Take this quiz and score your results to gain a sense of how much toxic burden you’re carrying in your body.
Read each question and give yourself 1 point for every yes answer.
Do you crave sweets, breads, pasta, white rice, and/or potatoes?
Do you eat processed foods (TV dinners, lunch meat) or fast foods at least three times a week?
Do you drink caffeinated beverages like coffee and tea more than twice daily?
Do you drink diets sodas or use artificial sweeteners at least once a day?
Do you sleep less than eight hours per day?
Do you drink less than 64 ounces of good, clean water daily?
Are you very sensitive to smoke, chemicals, or fumes in the environment?
Have you or are you taking antibiotics, antidepressants, or other medications?
Do you or have you taken birth control pills or other estrogens, such as hormone replacement therapy?
Do you have frequent yeast infections?
Do you have “silver” dental fillings?
Do you use commercial household cleaners, cosmetics, or deodorants?
Do you eat non-organic vegetables, fruits, or meat?
Have you ever smoked or been exposed to secondhand smoke?
Are you overweight or do you have cellulite fat deposits?
–8– Does your occupation expose you to environmental toxins?
Do you live in a major metropolitan city or near a big airport?
Do you feel tired, fatigued, or sluggish throughout the day?
Do you have difficulty concentrating or focusing?
Do you suffer bloating, indigestion, or frequent gas after eating?
Do you get more than two colds or the flu per year?
Do you have reoccurring congestion, sinus issues, or postnasal drip?
Do you sometimes notice bad breath, a coated tongue, or strong-smelling urine?
Do you have puffy eyes or dark circles under your eyes?
Are you often sad or depressed?
Do you often feel anxious, antsy, or stressed?
Do you have acne, breakouts, rashes, or hives?
Do you have less than one bowel movement per day and/or get constipated occasionally?
Do you have insomnia or trouble getting restful sleep?
Do you get blurred vision or itchy, burning eyes?
The higher your score, the greater the potential toxic burden you may be carrying and the more you may benefit from a detoxification and cleansing program. If you scored 20 or higher, you will significantly benefit from detoxifying your body, which could lead to weight loss and improved health and vitality. If you scored between 5 and 19, you may benefit from a detoxification program for improved health and vitality. If you scored below 5, you might actually be free of toxic overload in the body and living a very healthy, toxin-free life. Good for you!
Signs of toxic overload in the body include the following:
Bloating and gas Constipation Indigestion Low energy /fatigue Brain fog/Depression
