Underlying Contributors to Weight Gain
High caloric intake and low physical activity are well-known causes of weight gain. Many of our clients seeking to lose weight, however, are active people with healthy diets and exercise routines who come to us complaining of stubborn fat or unexplained weight gain.
When we dig deeper, we often find our clients are experiencing indicators of thyroid imbalances, fluid retention, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), constipation, inflammation or menopause complications- all issues which can present visibly with weight gain. Other common conditions we address when helping clients with weight loss are depression, anxiety, stress, diabetes and even side effects of certain medications.
3 secrets to long-term weight loss
Most people find it difficult to lose weight especially as they get older. You may have tried diets before and haven’t kept up with them, or you lost weight but didn’t create habits you could stick to long-term. No matter the cause our expert nutritionists, personal trainers & holistic practitioners are here to help.
We’ve done research to isolate techniques that will help our clients lose weight fast. We’ve found three important & related keys to weight loss:
- Sustainable weight loss starts at the cellular level.
Studies have shown there is a connection between cellular inflammation and hormone imbalances. Focusing your weight loss plan to reduce cellular inflammation by flushing toxins out of cells will improve cellular health & help you lose weight quickly.
- Hormone receptors are key to weight loss.
Healthy cells are more receptive to insulin and leptin, two hormones that regulate energy storage in the body. When your cellular health improves then hormone receptors work more effectively—helping you lose more weight.
- Long-term hormone imbalances have detrimental effects on the endocrine system.
When one part of the endocrine system malfunctions (such as when there is a thyroid disorder), other parts of the system overcompensate to balance hormones in the body. Balancing your endocrine system will create sustainable results. Your hormones will also be balanced so cellular health is preserved—leading to sustainable weight loss.
