Weight Loss Resistance Due To Hormones And Toxicity

In order for your body to lose weight, the hormones insulin and leptin must be doing their work.  Insulin is in place to control sugar and fat storage levels in the body and leptin’s job is the burning of fat.  If these hormones and the mechanisms that are there to utilize them isn’t working, you will be unable to lose weight and extremely prone to packing it on.

There are two reasons these hormones begin to fail in your body:

  • The over-consumption of sugar and processed grains
  • Toxicity

Toxicity is perhaps the greatest problem in the fight to lose weight.  When toxins enter your body they have an affinity for fat cells, due to the fact that they are fat soluble.  When the toxins attach to the outer cell membrane which is made of a lipid bi-layer (two layers of fat), it causes the cells to continually release Leptin.  And when Leptin is elevated too often, just like Insulin in Type II Diabetes, the receptors burn out and the message is not heard.  Leptin is the hormone that tells the brain to burn fat for energy, therefore, weight gain that does not respond to exercise or diet is inevitably due to Leptin resistance.

The toxins also cause the release of chemicals called cytokines that damage Leptin receptors in the brain (hypothalamus).  Once the receptors to Leptin have been damaged, Weight Loss Resistance is only the first of many problems.

Your body makes an extremely important hormone called MSH (Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone).  MSH is produced in the hypothalamus by Leptin, and it controls nerve, hormone, cytokine functions, skin and mucus membrane defenses, as well as controlls the production of endorphins and melatonin.  If your brain cannot hear Leptin (Leptin Resistance) you will eventually become MSH deficient.

What does this mean?  It means that every immune and hormone response in your body will be altered.  This leads to so many different diseases like depression, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and fibro-myalgia, just to name a few.

This science of Weight Loss Resistance will bring us out of the dark ages of extreme dieting and exercise not only for those who cannot lose weight, but also for those who are challenged with chronic illness.

You find yourself on medications, chasing symptoms on a never-ending downward spiral.

Most people equate  weight loss with aerobic exercising, jogging, running stepping, bouncing, etc.  The truth is after their first five to ten pounds of losing weight, their hormone mechanisms begins to work against them.  Because of this, they must continue to invest even more time to maintain just the five or tend pounds that they originally lost.

The good news is the proper exercise to lose weight only takes minutes and in our class we will demonstrate how with even the busiest of schedules this can be accomplished.
