We have found that losing weight can be incredibly easy when the body is healthy.
Most people think that they need to lose weight in order to be healthy. It is the opposite: YOU NEED TO BE HEALTHY IN ORDER TO LOSE WEIGHT!
So are you tired of the stubborn belly fat? Are you tired of weight loss programs that don’t work?
The way to lose weight is by turning ON the 6 fat burning hormones: thyroid hormones, growth hormones, insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), testosterone, glucagon, and adrenalin (my favorite one to turn on). In order to turn the fat burning hormones on we have to turn OFF the 3 fat-making hormones; estrogen, insulin, and cortisol.
There are 2 major reasons why your body will not turn on fat burning hormones: 1.) Food Intolerances and 2.) Organ/Gland mal-function.
1. Food Intolerances:
The vast majority of Americans have food intolerances and have no idea. Food intolerances turn on cortisol, estrogen and insulin. The most advanced way of determining food intolerances is with an AlCat test. The AlCat test will tell you exactly what foods your body does really well with and what foods it doesn’t. You will be amazed at how much better you will feel after following the AlCat guidelines. Many people notice more energy, better focus, less gray hair, clean digestion, and less stress overall. Many individuals experience a overall feeling of well-being without urges to consume sweets or salts.
2. Organ/Gland mal-function:
There are four body types that show up with weight gain: adrenal, ovary, thyroid and liver. Determining your body type or types give us the proper direction in your course of care.
With ADRENAL body type you will have a sagging belly. In the OVARY body types you will have fat collected on the hips and thighs. The THYROID body type will collect fat all over the body. And the LIVER type will have a protruding “beer” belly.
The fat that your body collects is a sign of organ or gland stress. Once the stress is removed from the mal-functioning organ or gland the body can turn on the fat burning hormones and then its time to get the new wardrobe!
