The Biggest Losers… Post TV study…
Why “the winners” all relapsed and put their weight back
A 6 year study of this popular TV reality program on weight loss is a real breakthrough and helps prove our strategy; that long term success requires addressing the hormonal issues that affect metabolism and cravings!
We start with the Liberate Yourself program itself and then we recommend you talk with your Naturopath or us to see what support they need around the program to address other underlying issues.
What most people don’t realize is that when we lose weight (or when we exercise) our insulin levels rise to protect us from starvation. Insulin causes food cravings to inspire us to eat more…So as we reduce our food or increase our exercise the body responds by increasing insulin production to make us feel hungry and eat more……GREAT!!!
In the case of Diabetes we want to increase insulin so we recommend exercise to help keep insulin high and glucose low. In the case of dieters this is not ideal, as the insulin rises so will hunger and the need to eat more!
Also, Research shows that when Vitamin D levels are low in the body, the hormone that helps turn off your appetite doesn’t function and you feel hungry, no matter how much you eat.
In 2009, researchers at the University of Minnesota found that those who have enough Vitamin D tend to lose more weight than those with low levels. Low Vitamin D is also associated with increased diabetes risk.
Fortunately, we can help!
Berberine 1 capsule twice daily may eliminate cravings by lowering insulin levels
Vitamin D 2000 IU daily may help to switch off a perpetual hunger
Once you get past these issues then consider that you may also have neurotransmitter-deficiency which causes cravings and if not addressed may cause anyone to eat their way back into their weight even if the metabolism is nicely balanced.
Will power is not enough 99% of the time to manage what is actually a nutrient/biochemical deficiency. If you want long term success then assess yourself.
to see what neurotransmitters you may be low in, or request a consultation to assess your specific needs.
