Why Do Most Diets May Fail?
Why Do Most Diets May Fail? VERY IMPORTANT
• Most diets cause loss of lean muscle which can slow down metabolism. This results in excessive weight gain. Most of the time the person will gain back their weight back and add on more pounds. This is called Yo-Yo dieting.
• Stress and Depression are well known to cause emotional over-eating.
• Those who are overweight, obese, and diabetic or have thyroid conditions are more than likely Leptin Resistant. If you are Leptin Resistant YOU CANNOT LOSE WEIGHT.
What is Leptin Resistance?
Leptin is a hormone made in your fat cells and is needed to control metabolism and hunger. Leptin resistance occurs when the hypothalamus gland in the brain is unable to receive a signal that you are full, thus chronic weight gain occurs. Highly processed sugary foods such as High Fructose Corn Syrup cause the pancreas to produce large levels of Insulin. Elevated Insulin levels cause fat storage which leads to Leptin resistance and facilitates chronic weight gain.
Long Term Factors in Weight Gain
Slower metabolism, Aging/Declining hormones, prolonged stress, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, medications, genetics, emotional issues, skipping breakfast and hunger are factors that stand in the way of a successful weight loss program.
The point is…….If you are Leptin Resistant or have low L Carnitine levels you will have to make changes to keep weight off permanently. If you make the changes we share with you the long term solution you are looking for will happen and when corrected you will burn calories like you did long ago.
