Getting Fat and can’t Lose the Weight?

Are you getting fatter and fatter, diet after diet and still not loosing the weight? Or after you finally manage to lose those few unwanted pounds you find that they have creeped right back onto your belly and hips plus a few more additional pounds, who told them they could bring friends?

Obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer, and type 2 diabetes. During the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in obssesity in the United States.  Changes in diet and exercise in the last several decades are believed to be at the root of the problem but what if it’s not that simple? What if it’s not just calories in and calories burned, then what? A growing number of researchers have discovered that toxic chemicals may be affecting  our metabolism and confusing our bodies in the effort to maintain a healthy weight.

Chemicals found in our food, home and work environments, and products we buy have been implicated in effects on metabolism.  Phthalates are plasticizers and fragrance carriers found in many products and building materials, including PVC/ vinyl items such as flooring and shower curtains, as well as in cleaners and personal care products. These have been shown to impair testosterone production and is strongly associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome in men. Studies show that phthalates directly affect key regulators of fat metabolism.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a building block of polycarbonate plastic and a component of food can linings. It is known to be estrogenic and to affect thyroid function, and laboratory research suggests exposure may result in weight gain. Some laboratory research found that especially in females BPA exposure can lead to higher weight gain and increased fat deposits.  Analyses of BPA in U.S. residents have linked higher exposure to a greater likelihood of diabetes and heart disease.

Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic Chemicals. Chemicals that last a long time in the environment and build up in our bodies are known as persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic chemicals (also called PBTs or POPs).  Some of these chemicals have been banned for many years but are still commonly found in the environment, in food, and in people. Some are still in use like flame retardants and Teflon. Studies have associeated persistent toxic chemicals with obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol. Toxic chemicals that can cause obesity, cancer, reproductive problems, and learning disabilities are in the products we use every day.   Disturbing news isn’t it? Basically the body responds to the build up of toxic impurities by trying to protect itself in many ways, including manufacturing and storing fat as a means of containing impurities and insulating itself from them.

Adequate hydration with purified water helps the body maintain the ideal, slightly alkaline, state which is critically important to health and to enable the body to cleanse out some of the toxic impurities. None of our bodily systems function properly if we keep it in a constant state of dehydration. Most people have the concept that if it’s liquid and you drink it that it will hydrate your body, WRONG!!! Remember water helps maintain your bodies ph balance and if you drink beverages such as sodas, coffee you are just adding to the acidic levels and not balancing it out. Your body must somehow deal with the chronic acidification and one of the first places it looks for a buffer is the calcium in our bones, increasing risk for osteoporosis.

How many people would like to have a second chance with their health? How many people sick with diabetes, cancer, heart disease would go back and change the things they eat if they could have the chance at a do over? Why is it that we wait until we are sick before we see that we could have done better by our eating habits. I believe most people would but just don’t know where to start or how to go about it.

Think of your body as a high performance race car, you want your car to perform well and win races right? You wouldn’t put regular gas in your expensive race car and then expect it to perform at its best and win races would you? Your body should be treated the same way, after all you will only have this one body and if you don’t feed it what it needs it will break down and quit performing at it’s peak. You need to cleanse all the toxins from your body, all that gunk and garbage that is stuck to the walls of your colon and all the toxins stored in your fat cells ( even skinny people have fat cells).
