Dr. T here,
Happy New Year to all.
Now is the time for realizing the best year of our lives.
One of the goals that patients tell me they have is losing weight and getting healthier.
Here are three proven methods to lose weight in 2015:
1. Eat More High Quality, Unprocessed Food
Yes, MORE food. It is a losing battle to restrict calories drastically, and in the end we are bound to just gain back this weight or more once we stop this restricted approach. There are many hormonal and behavioral reasons for this failure.
Besides, who wants to go through the torture of unappealing, low calorie meals.
There is another way. Let’s eat to balance our hormones and endocrine system. Let’s reestablish our energy balance system and get in fat burning mode. In my practice we have many resources to help our patients lose weight while eating more and not having cravings.
2. Move More And Train Less
Yes, it is extremely important for us to be physically active. However, hours and hours of cardio is not necessary and could be detrimental to weight loss, or possibly cause us to lose lean muscle instead! It is much better to do a type of exercise called “Interval Training”.
If we incorporate these brief High Intensity bouts 2-3 times a week for 12-20 minutes only, we will lower our stress response and facilitate weight loss and improve our insulin sensitivity, and reduce hunger. And yes, we should see a weight reduction of 1-2 pounds a week.
We hold on to excess body weight and adipose tissue when we have impaired hormonal systems, Gut absorption issues, and poorly functioning liver enzymatic systems. We accumulate these toxins when we are exposed to them in food, air, water, and other environmental exposures. Once we reduce our exposure to these toxins our bodies will allow us to lose fat more readily.
So, eat more, exercise less, and reduce toxic exposure.
Make 2015 your best year ever.
To your health,
Dr. T – The Diabesity Doc
