"Don’t Diet: They Always Fail."
WE HAVE all experienced that slight feeling of apprehension as we step onto the scale to check our weight. We get that uneasy feeling in the pit of our stomachs before the scale reveals to us that number we are dreading to see. Then there are those feelings of failure that begin to creep in, because we have been trying so hard to stick to a diet that makes us feel tired and hungry. Even though we don’t see the number on the scale we want, we still cling to hopes of losing weight, only to become more frustrated. For many of us, this may be our second or third diet where we have lost 10lb, 20lb or more, only to gain back the weight we lost in a rather short period of time. Or we have lost some weight and can’t seem to lose the remaining pounds in those areas that it just seems to stick to our bodies, in places where the fat just won’t come off. You may be a woman in your 30s, 40s or 50+ who has lost and gained that same 10lbs three or four times. Except, each time you lose it and gain it back, you also gain another 5lb. By now you need to lose 25lb or more and the fat is now in places on your body it wasn’t in before. For men in their 40s and over, excess fat is often stored in the belly area and no amount of dieting will help lose that fat. We all have those stubborn areas of our body where the fat just will not come off.
DIETS DON’T WORK –IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT
The truth is, there is a real problem with diets and it’s not your fault when your diet fails. The reason we are unable to lose weight, or why we regain the weight we have already lost over and over again in a short period of time, is physiological. Diets and exercise will not release the problem area, fat reserves or reshape your body.
The answer lies within a single gland in our bodies, the hypothalamus. It is like the brain of the brain, it controls weight, hunger and metabolism. When the hypothalamus is off balance or turned off, the fat you eat becomes stored fat in areas of the body you find hard to lose. Also, your body has no access to this stored fat; it can’t be used by the body for daily energy. Dieting does not address or fix the problem of an off balance hypothalamus, dieting only addresses the symptoms.
UNDERSTANDING THE TYPES OF FAT
When trying to lose weight and keep it off, it is important to understand the different types of fat. When you diet, you loose fat, fluid and muscle. With some diets, you can lose both fat and too much muscle. Dieting can starve the body; it will pull from any part of it to survive. One of the easiest sources of energy for the body is our muscles. It is not easy to replace muscle once it is lost. The amount of muscle mass you have affects your metabolism. The more muscle mass you have, the higher your metabolism. Losing muscle is very unhealthy to the body and can weaken your body’s structural system.
The hypothalamus controls how the fat you consume is used by the body. If the hypothalamus is off balance, the body is not using the fat you consume properly and you then develop too much abnormal fat (stored fat). This can lead to weight gain and obesity.
WHAT TURNS OFF THE HYPOTHALAMUS
There are many factors that can affect the hypothalamus, to cause it to be off balance. Some of these factors are stress, pregnancy, menopause, eating certain foods, food additives like monosodium glutamate, high fructose sugar, and hydrogenated oils, to name a few.
The only way to fix the hypothalamus is to reset your body’s metabolism. Then you can truly address the real physiological causes of weight gain, obesity and inability to lose weight.
FIXING THE HYPOTHALAMUS
When the hypothalamus is functioning properly, the fat you eat is kept in the body as normal fat – ‘good fat’ – and burned off as energy. The only way to lose abnormal fat (stored fat) is to reset your metabolism so your body will function effectively. You will then lose abnormal fat, reshape your body, are less hungry, and have more everyday energy. Your body will then burn stored fat as energy and reset your body’s metabolism to a more well balanced healthy system. Consider your body to be like a thermostat, where you set your weight similar to setting the temperature in a room. Let’s say your thermostat is set at 75° and it is cold outside. The temperature in the room will drop to 65° because of the cold. When the room gets cold the thermostat ‘resets’ and will warm the room back up to 75° because that is where the thermostat is set originally. So when you diet, initially it is like being cold, you will lose weight, but because your hypothalamus has not been reset, eventually you will regain the weight you lost or even more. To make weight loss permanent, you must reset your hypothalamus.
YOU CAN ACHIEVE PERMANENT WEIGHT LOSS
Achieving permanent weight loss is not as impossible as you may have once believed. First, you need to reset your hypothalamus, which requires the use of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and then couple it with a diet protocol for a period of no less than three weeks. HCG is a natural water-based hormone that helps the hypothalamus gland control your metabolic rate. Once you reset your hypothalamus, you will then be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat. Your hypothalamus will no longer be off balance and your body will function normally, burning normal fat as energy. And, as a result, you will then be able to maintain your new healthier weight.
