Everyone knows at this point that obesity and chronic disease in the United States is at an all time high. But what people don't talk about very much is the inability of people to make lasting lifestyle changes rather than play the dieting game.
Our culture and media is permeated with diets and quick fixes. Most diets, to an extent, work, but only for a limited amount of time. The issue is, when people get off these diets, they go back to their old eating habits or make up for their so called forced restriction, only to put the weight back on and start what inevitably becomes a viscous cycle.
We realize that weight gain is not only caused by poor eating choices, but also by functional physiological issues. Historical assessments and precise laboratory analysis are a necessary component of getting to the underlying issues of weight gain. When our organ systems are working the way that they should be, generally, weight is a non-issue.
Issues that may be contributing to your inability to lose weight:
- Thyroid irregularity
- Hormone imbalance
- Adrenal dysfunction
- Food sensitivities
- Intestinal hyperpermeability
Many nutritionists can give you their assessments and protocols, but without proper functional laboratory analysis and data, they can only truly give you a one-size fits all approach. Losing weight and keeping it off does not need to be so difficult. With the proper guidance and information, you will not only look like a new person, but also truly feel like a new person.
