Ever Wonder Why You Are Always Hungry?

Toxic Overload

 

Over the past several decades our environment has become increasingly more toxic. There are thousands of toxic chemicals that we are exposed to from our air, water and food supplies. We also consume an ever growing list of toxins every day such as: artificial sweeteners, MSG, caffeine, over the- counter medications, alcohol, nicotine and damaged fats. The body also produces toxins as a by-product of normal cellular functions.

The accumulation of these toxins creates a total toxic overload. Our bodies are able to counteract, neutralize and remove a certain level of toxins; however, when we ingest, inhale or are exposed to more toxins than the body can handle, toxicity occurs.

When these toxins accumulate in the body excessive oxidative stress occurs and this can threaten our health by damaging DNA. Damaged DNA is the catalyst for cancer and birth defects.

You may be burdened by any of the common symptoms of toxicity or a combination of a variety of them, such as: headaches, fatigue, joint pains, insomnia, mood changes, weakened immune system, or chronic GI issues.  This total toxic overload has been implicated in a variety of diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, allergies, asthma, skin conditions, mental illness, hypertension, gastritis, kidney disease and obesity.

Toxins May Be Disrupting Your Weight and Turning Off Your Metabolic Engine

All these toxins affect our ability to lose weight because we store most of the toxins in our body (in our fat).

When you burn off the fat, the toxins come out, and IF they aren’t processed properly, they can cause additional problems.

In addition, our total toxic load can frustrate attempts at weight loss by impairing two key metabolic organs – the liver and the thyroid – and by damaging our energy-burning factories – the mitochondria.

I’m not giving you this information to frighten you, but rather to make you aware of what is going on inside you and around you so that you can see how important it is to minimize your exposure to toxins and maximize your excretion of them.

People with a higher BMI (body mass index) store more toxins because they generally have more fat. Those toxins interfere with many aspects of metabolism, including reducing thyroid hormone levels and increasing excretion of thyroid hormones by the liver.

Ever Wonder Why You Are Always Hungry?

Besides directly lowering thyroid hormone levels, breaking down your mitochondria, disturbing your metabolic rate, and inhibiting fat burning, toxins can damage the mechanisms by which hormonal signals control your appetite and eating behavior.

Leptin is the hormone that tells your brain you are full. Toxins (heavy metals such as mercury and chemicals) block these signals. Over time, your brain becomes resistant to the effects of leptin, making you hungry all the time. So exposure to toxins can increase your appetite.

All this is proof that toxins have a serious effect on whether or not you gain weight and your ability to lose it.

However, there is good news. For anyone overweight or concerned about toxins, I strongly recommend going through a detoxification program.

I truly believe that environmental toxins cause unnecessary weight gain, and learning how to eliminate those toxins in a healthy way is very important.

That is why, I recommend doing a gentle detox every 3 to 4 months. 

I offer a REAL FOOD CLEANSE in which you will eat real, seasonal food every couple of hours.

Most people begin to experience all or some of the following after only one week:

  • Better digestion and elimination
  • Fewer symptoms of chronic illness
  • Improved concentration, mental focus, and clarity
  • Improved mood and increased equanimity
  • Increased energy and sense of well-being
  • Less congestion and fewer allergic symptoms
  • Less fluid retention
  • Less joint pain
  • Increased sense of peace and relaxation

To join the 10 Day Real Food Spring Cleanse, simply use this link:

It’s not a long commitment. Within 5 to 7 days, you’ll see your body transform.

However, if you stay with the program for 10 days, you’ll get a deeper experience of the rejuvenation that detoxification can bring.
