In the USA, obesity is one of the major health concerns among Americans.
Aside from obesity, there are a lot of people who may not be technically obese, but are generally unhappy with their weight and would like to shed some excess or stubborn fat. While there is no perfect body size, people can choose to keep any weight they prefer, provided they stay healthy.
About 65% of adults and 15% of children and adolescents in the US are either overweight or obese. Out of these, 53% are willing to lose weight. In fact, Americans spend $20 billion on weight loss products every year.
The weight problem can be primarily attributed to the junk food culture. Also, American diets are heavier on caloric content than the majority of cultures. The average American consumes about 3,600 calories per day – which is near twice the recommended intake, (2,000 calories for women and 2,500 for men).
The irony of this whole thing is that while the caloric intake is high, there is little to no physical activity among millions of Americans, so the calories ‘keep sitting on each other’ with fewer calories burnt away.
From the above, we can loosely agree that the simplest way to control weight is either to limit caloric intake or increase physical activity or maintain/adopt a good measure of both.
What you are doing wrong about weight loss.
First of all, it must be noted that there is no “size fits all” weight loss solution or program. Humans have different body structures, and what might for Amanda, wouldn’t work for Barry. While some people resort to dieting, others resort to work out or even surgical means to achieve quick and rapid results.
What a lot of people seem to forget is how to maintain a certain desired weight, once they get there. Meaning, when we get to a certain desired weight, most people cannot sustain it and usually slump back to their old habits that put them above their desired weight in the first place.
Below are a few things we are getting wrong in our quest to lose weight loss:
- Making the “workout” a license to eat whatever, irrespective of caloric components.
- Limiting caloric food intake while increasing or not equally reducing caloric drink intake.
- Not practicing mindful eating.
- Not practicing portion control.
- Sticking to a particular workout routine without varying it.
- Not paying attention to toxicity.
As stated earlier, the simplest approach to losing weight are dieting and exercising. That being said, there are some internal processes such as metabolism and oxidation that can affect how fast or how effective a dieting or workout program might be for individuals. These internal processes are inversely affected by other internal and external factors. When the effort put to improve your lifestyle doesn’t result in the desired outcome of weight loss, toxicity may be at play as an underlying condition.
Simply put, toxicity is the degree to which a substance (a toxin or poison) can harm the body. Exposure to potentially harmful chemicals is so widespread that toxins can be stored in your fat cells, interfering with hormone receptors to block the important messages that hormones carry to your cells.
It is alarming that not much is said about how toxins can affect one’s weight. It’s high time we begin this conversation and place a spotlight on the effect of toxicity in the human body. Toxins can be found almost everywhere: in the air, we breathe, in our food, in our water, in household products we use, and even in the clothes we wear.
While we have limited control over the toxins we are exposed to, we can minimise/flush them out by adopting lifestyles that reduce our contact with toxic substances. Paying close attention to the products you choose, where you spend time, and what you put into your body can make a big difference.”
The science behind weight and toxicity
The toxic build-up from lifestyles, consumer products, and other toxic substances in our environment, may be what’s hindering our weight. And this is how it happens:
Your body must dispose of fat deposits through a series of complicated metabolic pathways.
When you diet, you take in fewer calories than your body needs. Because of this deficit, your body turns to fat reserves for energy to carry you forward. The by-products of fat metabolism leave your body:
- As water, through your skin (when you sweat) and your kidneys (when you urinate).
- As carbon dioxide, through your lungs (when you breathe out).
When you work out, your muscles first burn through stored glycogen for energy. Exercise also increases your respiratory rate, so more carbon dioxide leaves your body when you work out.
In essence, fat is converted into energy for use for the body or into carbon dioxide and leaves our body.
In the event of toxicity, it affects our hormones and insulin levels in and of itself and alters our metabolism and our body’s ability to maintain proper blood sugar levels, and this leads to weight gain. While we can prevent toxicity to a certain degree by paying attention to components of personal care products, cosmetics, cleaning products etc. we have to focus on whole foods, 100% healthy nutrition and detoxification so that our bodies may release the excess toxins and weight.
