REBOOT YOUR HORMONES:
This represents the best new science in the fight against overweight/ obesity research and without a doubt one of the most critical. Shifting your fat making and fat burning hormones to work for you rather than against you is the key to effective and sustainable fat loss.
Insulin and leptin are two major players in obesity.
Insulin, known as the fat making hormone, is released by the pancreas to help our bodies process sugar. When we eat sugar or sugar producing foods (like starches or grains) we release glucose in our blood stream.
Insulin tells our cells to pick up glucose and either burn it for energy or store it for fat. Leptin is the master fat burning hormone. Secreted by fat cells, leptin tells your brain when to burn fat. When your body goes into starvation mode, as with most diets, your leptin levels automatically drop. This tells your brain to hold on to its fat storage for survival. It also tells your brain that you are hungry and to eat more food to replenish your fuel supplies. This explains why it is so hard to lose weight on low calorie diets and why you feel hungry all the time.
The consumption of too much sugar, starch or grains, low fat foods, processed foods, or too little protein, fat, or fiber can result in an unhealthy elevation of insulin, which can cause us to be insulin resistant. In effect, we burn out our cells ability to detect insulin, causing our pancreas to make even more. Insulin resistance is a key feature of metabolic syndrome and type II diabetes. But perhaps the most damaging effects that chronic levels of insulin has on obesity, is it’s domino effect on our fat burning hormones.
High insulin levels in the body can block the leptin receptors in the brain and we also can become leptin resistant. This can shut down the burning of fat. So you can see the vicious cycle being created in your body. Too many simple carbohydrates- high insulin – insulin resistance – accumulation of more fat and leptin resistance – less burning of fat and constant state of hunger.
If insulin and leptin resistance are not corrected, you have no chance of achieving sustainable fat loss.
The major contributors to insulin and leptin are poor food choices, chronic inflammation poor gut health and malnourishment
REBOOTING IS ABOUT providing right blends of foods that will best support the healthy production and use of insulin and leptin while eliminating the bad foods that can throw them out of balance.
- It takes fat to burn fat! So add good fats to every meal.
- Studies have shown that healthy fats help the release of leptin.
- Healthy fats can slow down digestion and help control the release of insulin.
- Healthy fat in the diet can help reduce hunger.
- Essential fatty acids can boost your metabolic rate.
- Old fat or (subcutaneous fat) stored around the belly, thighs, and butt, can’t burn efficiently without healthy dietary fats
- Moderate your protein intake. Excessive protein is broken down into sugar, which can contribute to insulin resistance.
- Eliminate sugar, grains and other high sugar producing carbohydrates! This is required in order to help curb the body’s overproduction if insulin. This will help correct both insulin and leptin resistance.
- Eliminate trans fats! Trans fats are chemically altered unsaturated fats. They can increase inflammation, obesity, and risk of heart disease while promoting a carb burning metabolism. Trans fats are found in foods like shortening, margarine, processed foods, snack foods and fried foods.
REBOOT YOUR LIFE
Rebooting your metabolism is about making food choices that help support the body’s normal energy-producing, fat-burning, muscle-building functions. Our bodies were designed to burn fat as our primary source of fuel, but our modern diets have greatly compromised that function resulting in the escalating numbers of overweight/obese individuals. And these numbers continue to grow in spite of a robust, sixty billion dollar a year diet and weight loss industry. It almost seems like the more we diet, the fatter and sicker we become. In fact, over 95% of everyone who loses weight by dieting, gains more back than when they started.
Science has finally broken the code on this phenomenon. It turns out that fat loss has as much or more to do with hormones than calorie-in, calorie-out. Hormones are signaling molecules that trigger specific cells into action. They regulate virtually every aspect of your body’s day-to-day functioning. In the case of fat-burning your body makes a hormone that regulates when and how much fat should be converted to energy.
