Overcome Weight Loss Resistance!
Have you tried to get the weight off and it just won't budge? I can relate. I was sixty pounds overweight and still have to watch it or the pounds pack on. Recently, my weight had been creeping up and I just couldn’t understand why. I’ve been doing what I always do; Functional Fitness combined with sensible eating. After six months of really trying, I decided enough was enough, it was time to visit the doctor and so I went to the endocrinologist. Thank goodness I went and wish I’d gone sooner. Could you have the disease that causes weight loss resistance? Physician’s Assistant, Kimberly Shapiro reveals some surprising reasons you’re struggling to lose weight and when to see your doctor.
If you’re trying to lose weight, don’t give up! Here’s another important reason to lose weight.
Fat tissue creates chronic inflammation in your cells. The more excessive adipose tissue (fat) you carry, the higher the level of inflammation and the lower your immune system will be. Fat makes you older. Aging is not a disease. Aging is damage to your body cells. When you take in more than you burn off, you’re feeding age damaging fat cells to your body. Stress ages your body as well. That’s why the first thing you should do is find a way to release stress. For me yoga was the first step. At sixty pounds overweight, I needed a yoga that didn’t involve contorting into a pretzel and that’s how Beginners Dynamic Yoga for Stress Release and Weight Loss was developed. It’s the first step to getting the weight off. Tune in next week for the second step and you’ll be looking and feeling younger! Do you have a special event you want to look and feel younger for? Let me know. I’ll help you get there!
