Healing Your Metabolism is the First Step to Sustainable Weight Loss!
Losing Weight & the Importance of Metabolism
The countless years many of us spend dieting and overexercising to achieve optimal wellness and our “happy naked body” take a negative toll on the very organs & systems that were designed to keep us healthy. With everyone putting in their “two cents” regarding what approach is best, no wonder our quest to be “happy naked” looks like an EKG report; the lose-gain-lose-gain cycle that seems never-ending. Each time we attempt to lose weight again, we try a new approach, which ends up backfiring because it just further damages our metabolism.
In the simplest of definitions, metabolism is the chemical reactions in the body’s cells that change food into energy. Your metabolism increases whenever you eat, digest, or store food. No wonder skipping meals and not eating on a routine schedule slows down your metabolism!
The chemical reactions involved in the metabolic process are controlled by hormones. Our lifestyle habits influence these hormones & have a positive or negative effect on our ability to lose weight and keep it off. Skipping meals, eliminating food groups, not getting enough sleep, stress, getting on and off the diet hamster wheel, and overexercising all cause the organs which secrete these hormones involved in the metabolic process to become dysfunctional. Hence the reason, healing your metabolism is the first step in achieving and maintaining weight & fat loss.
