Why am I not loosing weight? – Your healthy diet may be to blame

loosing weight

Are you following all of the weight loss rules and not loosing weight – counting calories, counting carbohydrates, exercising – and yet you are still struggling with those stubborn extra pounds? To make things worse, are you also experiencing a fatigue, achiness and bloating? Your healthy diet may be to blame!

If you are experiencing a losing battle of the bulge and chronic health issues, it’s no wonder you are frustrated. I hear this over and over. I wonder if I will ever feel better and will I ever get this stubborn weight off? Guess what? All of these symptoms can often be traced back to what you eat. Often the culprits are the very foods you’re eating in an effort to be healthy. The reason may be food intolerance. I talked last week about food intolerance. It is a negative reaction to certain foods that can sabotage your health by triggering inflammation and causing a host of nasty symptoms.

Unlike food allergies that are acute and severe, food intolerances can be difficult to pinpoint. If someone with a peanut allergy eats peanuts, she/he can go into anaphylactic shock and immediately need medical attention – this type of reaction is acute and severe. Someone with a food intolerance, on the other hand, will experience subtle symptoms that can worsen over time.

Food intolerances fire up your immune system just like food allergies do, but their effect is more subtle and symptoms may not appear for several hours or even days, after you’ve eaten a highly reactive food. So you may not make the connection between, say, the egg-white omelet you had for breakfast and that late-afternoon splitting headache. Food intolerances develop when you repeatedly eat a highly reactive food, one that you react to. The reactive action is not the same for everyone. Different people react to different foods. Food intolerances can trigger a leaky gut, immune reactions and inflammation, and they can also stall fast fat loss.

Food intolerances trigger numerous symptoms. If you recognize even one of these symptoms, you could be suffering from a food intolerance. Digestive trouble – bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, sleep issues – fatigue, insomnia, restlessness, waking during the night, congestion, sneezing and coughing, muscle aches and joint pain, dark circles under your eyes, dull, lifeless hair, skin problems, including acne and rosacea, mood problems – lack of focus, brain fog, depression, anxiety or irritability, poor or unsteady energy, premature aging, weight gain or inability to lose weight. This is a long list and so many of us probably experience some of these symptoms and have no idea to what they are related.

Because food intolerances trigger an immune reaction, they can also cause inflammation. Chronic inflammation is connected to just about every disease on the planet, from dementia to cancer. Inflammation also makes fat loss impossible. So what do we do about it? Like most of what I have been talking about for years is We must take charge of our health. To do this we have to know our individual needs as we can determine by doing the Micronutrient blood testing. This test lets us know what deficiencies we have and how to replenish them. Next we can test for food intolerances. This is a laboratory test looking at a long list of possibilities to zero in on what we are intolerant to, so that we can eliminate them. Next we can decrease inflammation caused by these intolerances by receiving our Magnetic Resonance Therapy.

To summarize if you are not loosing weight:

  • Decrease inflammation for disease prevention and to allow our bodies to do their job, be strong and healthy
  • Know what our bodies need and replace deficiencies
  • Know what our bodies are intolerant of and eliminate them

This all sounds complicated but the more we learn and understand our own specific needs the more this review and self examination becomes a way of life. Understanding that we are all different and that the traditional health care approach of same old, same old and one size fits all is not a good fit anymore. As well we don’t want to wait to be sick. We want to promote health.
