Weighing Your Options

It’s no surprise that most people are constantly fighting with their jeans to fit.  We eat more, exercise less, rely on packaged foods rather than whole foods and have higher stress levels than ever before. Most importantly, we have ignored the messages our body’s are trying to tell us. We have lost the ability to distinguish the signals of failing health and then get surprised when an illness pops up. We then expect that someone else should fix us, and get frustrated when it takes too long or can’t find the answers to your health dilemna.
At what point do we take responsibility for our own health.
Statistic Canada reports that “during the 2007-to-2009 period, just under 38% of adults were at a healthy weight. About 1% were underweight, 37% were overweight and 24% were obese.” The overweight and obese percentages have increased since these reports.  According to a health survey conducted by the University of Ottawa, the latest analysis shows that 48% of adults were overweight (with a BMI of 25 to 29.9) and 26% were obese (with a BMI of 30 and over).
With these high numbers comes a slew of weight loss programs, products, gadgets, pills, potions and surgeries. Although there are many products and methods to help one lose the weight, in general a one-sized fits all approach to weight loss just doesn’t cut it.
 It’s very simple. We all gain it in different ways, how can we expect to lose it in the same way.
There are many weight loss programs that help one to dramatically lose the weight. It comes off faster than anyone could imagine. Unfortunately, weight is not the only thing that comes off. Being on such a low calorie diet can cause hair loss, nail loss, and general loss of health. Simply put, the body goes into starvation mode called Ketosis. This occurs when our glycogen stores run out and our body begins to produce ketones for energy. During this time, we feel less hungry and eventually our metabolic rate slows down. High ketone levels can be toxic, making the blood more acidic. With this elevated level, damage can occur to the kidneys and liver.
These quick fix diets are a recipe for disaster.
The key to weightloss is working with a health practitioner who can work with your individual metabolic needs, create a program that suits your lifestyle and one that takes into consideration your emotional, and physical state.
