If you are one of the millions of people who constantly struggle with your weight and are always on some type of diet or exercise program to help fight the battle of the bulge, this book will be very helpful to you.
Many people spend half their life dieting yet they still can’t lose any weight. Some wonder why they spend so much time exercising with little or no results to show. Others claim they do a good job of dieting and exercising, but are still unable to reach their desired weight loss goals. With so much dieting and exercise we should be seeing more positive results. Unfortunately, here in America, problems with weight gain and obesity are a growing concern.
Most people think diet and exercise are all that’s involved when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. But diet and exercise may not be the only pieces of this puzzle.
There could be another factor we haven’t looked at before — Stress!
Stress may be part of the problem that’s holding back your results. Is there heavy stress in your life? Do you always feel fatigued and run down? Are you constantly on the go? Do you suffer from headaches, indigestion, bloating, constipation, allergies, PMS, menopause, arthritis, diabetes and low blood sugar? Do you get enough sleep each night? If you’re answering yes to this short list of questions there is a good chance that stress is overwhelming your body and triggering hormonal responses that are working against all your good dieting and exercise effort. It’s also a possibility that your diet and exercise programs may be triggering the wrong hormonal response and triggering your body to store fat rather than burn fat.
All we have heard about for the last 25 years has been how many calories we need to burn to lose weight. What we are starting to realize is that it doesn’t necessarily matter how many calories we burn each day if we are always burning calories from the wrong source. Let me explain, the human body can burn calories from carbohydrates, proteins or fats. The biggest problem for most people who are unsuccessful with their weight loss efforts is that they are constantly burning calories from carbohydrates and proteins (lean muscle) and not from fats.
The key is triggering your body to burn fat and not store fat! Some hormones trigger our body to burn fat, some hormones trigger our body to store fat and some hormones trigger our body to burn carbohydrates and proteins. If you’re trying to lose weight it would be smarter to trigger your body to produce more of the hormones that burn fat rather than storing fat.
This is what you will learn as you read this book. You will learn the type of diet to follow in order to help produce hormones that will burn fat. You will learn the type of workout routine that will help you burn calories from stored body fat. Most importantly, you will learn the overwhelming effect stress has on your body’s ability to either burn fat or store fat.
The final point I want to make known as you read this book is that not only do I want to help you get thinner, I want to help you become healthier. There are a lot of unhealthy skinny people out and about. Fortunately, the suggestions outlined in this book will help us not only lose weight, by regulating our hormones, it will also move us closer to overall better health.
We are not all the same, but when our body is bombarded with various symptoms (signals), it is letting us know that something inside isn’t working or functioning properly. The amazing thing is that as we focus on getting our bodies healthier and back in balance, it is much easier for the body to drop those unwanted pounds.
I want to wish you the best of luck as you strive towards a leaner and healthier body and I hope you can follow the actions steps suggested at the end of each chapter.
