There are so many strategies to lose weight. How do you choose? What is the fastest and how do you get the biggest bang for your buck? If you are going to diet and want to lose quickly, there is a way to combine several strategies and reach your ideal weight quicker. You first must know what causes weight gain, what strategies work the best and how to combine them.
Factors that Cause Weight Gain
Toxins cause inflammation and inflammation causes weight gain, and immune, hormone and nervous system disruption. Toxins can be herbicides and pesticides on food. Personal care and cleaning products can contain chemicals that are “obesogens” that can change your hormones and make you gain weight.
Eating All Day and at the Wrong Time
Intermittent fasting is all the rage right now and for a good reason. Working with your body’s biological clock and giving it a rest has been shown to enable blood sugar regulation and weight loss. There are many methods, however the most popular is 16: 8 which is 16 hours of fasting and eating within an 8-hour window.
Too Many Calories
Calorie restriction is an approach used in Longevity Medicine to clean out old, dead cells, change your metabolism and make new cells. Some diets mimic fasting and restrict calories so you live off your fat, lower inflammation, blood sugar and insulin resistance and if done with the right supplements, you can maintain muscle. Sometimes you need a very low calorie count to get where you want to go.
Too Much Fat, Too Many Carbs
Restricting carbohydrates has been very popular for a long time and if you want more rapid and dramatic weight loss, restricting fats and carbohydrates is a winning formula. Eating mostly low calorie vegetables, lean protein and low glycemic fruit makes this more well rounded and tolerable.
Our food has been altered and stress, chemicals and processed foods and additives have damaged our gut lining. This makes it hard for us to digest food and the damaged lining allows partially broken down food to enter and the body mounts an immune response against the food. This causes inflammation which causes weight gain. Eliminating the offending foods for a few weeks or more enables the gut to heal and your body releases weight and inflammation.
