What is the source of most weight gain issues?

The cause of most weight issues in our modern society, particularly in the U.S. is often an insulin dysfunction. A diet grossly disproportionate in its share of carbohydrates and sugars — such as in breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice and corn — causes the pancreas to produce an overabundance of insulin, which stays in the system and puts the blood sugar level in a negative balance.Even worse, is the amount of people with hyperinsulinemia who eventually end up with insulin resistance, Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, and Type II Diabetes.

An overproduction of insulin leads to hypoglycemia and hyperinsulinemia, which in turn induces constant sugar cravings and weight gain. Insulin’s primary function is to regulate blood sugar levels however it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat (triglycerides) into the fat cells. Even worse, it “locks” the fat in the fat cell, preventing it to be used as a source of energy. Now, because the blood sugar has dropped (and we can’t access the fat as a fuel source) it creates “sugar cravings” and the vicious cycle begins again. In other words, an overabundance of insulin causes weight gain.

We coach our patients back to health by showing them how to induce the body’s ability to digest sugars properly by regulating insulin levels. How? By giving the pancreas a well-deserved break and by limiting simple and complex carbs until the weight loss goal is achieved. We also provide our patients the knowledge to keep those pounds off forever, and reset the metabolism using techniques and scientific knowledge that result in fat loss while sparing muscle mass.

Our protocol, which helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue, promotes fat loss by getting the body to burn its fat reserves while sparring muscle tissue. This protocol is using the body’s own natural ability to heal itself and return to its natural radiance and balanced state of health.

The principles behind our protocol are scientific, reproducible, and effective. Simply put, we help the body learn to live off of its own fat reserves! The body employs energy from three reserves: glycogen (carbohydrate), protein and fats. It starts with simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and, once depleted, turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy. A person not in need of weight loss typically has approximately 1-2% of their body’s reserves from carbs, approximately 19% from their muscle mass and 79% of their body reserves from fat.

Simple and complex carbohydrates can prevent weight loss. The body stores approximately three days of carbohydrates. Because of this, our protocol has a beginning and an end. Until 100% of the weight loss goal is achieved, we restrict sugars (simple and complex). Why? Because, as long as sugar is being consumed, the body is not burning fat. It’s as simple as that. Remember, the first source of energy is derived from glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves. The main principle is to deplete the glycogen (carbohydrate) reserves completely in order to compel the body to turn to its fat reserve to burn calories.

How do we get the body to burn its fat reserves and not its muscle mass reserves, if both are depleted simultaneously? First, by providing the body with foods that have a high-protein value, complete with 8 essential amino acids, 97% absorbable, which make them biologically complete proteins.

Second, we supplement with nutrient-rich supplements which are key ingredients in muscle building and electrolytes to replace those normally found in foods restricted on the protocol.You will feel energized, look vibrant and feel strong. It’s no wonder, given the opportunity for the body’s natural ability to heal itself and showcase its innate and ingenious powers, the body will return the favor with unparalleled force, radiance and beauty.

On average, women lose weight at the rate of 3 to 4 pounds per week; men lose 4 to 7 pounds per week.

With this program you will achieve:

  • Quick weight loss without sacrificing muscle mass.
  • An understanding of how food affects and is utilized by the body, including what causes fat storage.
  • Improved skin tone by providing the skin nutrients it needs.
  • Utilization of stored fat for energy usually by day 7 —fat, (along with cellulite) that contains chemical toxins.Improved energy, appetite control, and reduced cravings —usually on day 6 or 7.
  • Improved blood sugar, cholesterol levels, and reduced blood pressure.
