Weight Loss (Obesity)
Four Winds Nutrition recommends a simple yet efficient program!
There are basic keys to achieving this goal.
1. Start with an Attitude Adjustment
Stress and unresolved emotional issues can also contribute to weight gain. Many people eat to feed emotional needs. Stress also releases hormones from the adrenals like cortisol, which causes a breakdown of muscle tissue and can contribute to creating fat deposits. Stress can also cause a release of other chemicals which create food cravings and otherwise upset the body's biochemistry.
Keeping an emotional journal where you can write down your feelings when you are having the desire to eat junk food or otherwise fail to take care of your body, can help you identify and fulfill your real emotional needs. Cravings for sugar and sweets often signals a lack of joy or "sweetness" in one's life. Finding ways to bring more joy into your life can help fulfill those emotional needs in more constructive ways.
Supplements that help you deal with stress more effectively can also be beneficial. These include Nature's Cortisol, which helps reduce stress levels and inhibits excess cortisol production. This can be particularly helpful where there is abdominal fat due to stress. Along with Nature's Cortisol, other options are Nutri-Calm and Adrenal Support. These also help reduce stress levels. Nutri-Calm helps a person who is always running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, while Adrenal Support can rebuild the adrenals of those who are "burned-out" and addicted to stimulants like caffeine.
Depression may also be involved in weight problems and food cravings. 5-HTP can help increase serotonin levels, which can reduce appetite and improve mood. Remember that cortisol is also released in response to chronic inflammation, so a supplement like Thai-Go that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties can also help to reduce cortisol output. Reducing inflammation also increases metabolism and helps leptin, the fat burning hormone, work more efficiently.
Sometimes, it seems that food cravings are our worst enemy when trying to change our diet. Therefore, supplements that reduce appetite or specific food cravings may also be helpful as part of a weight loss program. Garcinia Combination boosts metabolism. Stixated helps with sugar cravings and hunger.
Cravings for sugar are signs of blood sugar problems and usually indicate that the diet is lacking fat and protein. Licorice Root and Super Algae are two supplements that can control blood sugar levels and reduce the cravings for sweets. Addiction to sugar and other simple carbohydrates is a big problem for some people, so it is also helpful to substitute a healthier form of sweets,. For instance, xylitol-sweetened chocolate bars, gum or mints can satisfy the occasional cravings for sweets without causing the blood sugar spikes that lead to weight gain. Bulk xylitol may be substituted in equal amounts for refined sugar, but not in yeast breads.
