There is a lot of talk as to what to do for weight loss and no shortage of information in Alpharetta. So what information is right? If you want weight loss in Alpharetta is it through diet, exercise, supplements, fasting, juicing, detox? The truth is if you want weight loss all of these methods may help, you have to find the one that is right for you. This alone may not be easy task to undertake alone. You may want the help and experience of a healthcare practitioner for weight loss in Alpharetta.
At Holistic Health Center in Alpharetta we can help you attain your weight loss goals. Now depending on where your sticking point is will determine how quickly you see results with weight loss. Many times a lack of exercise is one of the causes of a lack of weight loss yet sometimes a person is too tired to exercise or in too much pain. In this case a person’s pain levels must be addressed before an exercise regimen can be implemented and weight loss can be attained. Sometimes a person is suffering from anxiety or depression and this is effecting their desire to want to go outside and exercise or leading to them overeating keeping them from attaining weight loss. In this case a person’s biochemistry must be supported with therapeutic grade nutritional products to help them to start feeling better which will then allow them to want to be seen in a gym or have the desire to go outside to exercise as well as control their binge eating. Also another reason for a lack of weight loss for people in Alpharetta is toxic build up in the tissues. The Environmental Protection Agency tells us we come into contact with eighty thousand toxins in our food, air and water every week. This does not include any additional things we do such as smoking, alcohol, drugs or medications. So whether you live in Alpharetta or anywhere on the earth, chances are you are toxic on some level. So what? Why does this matter and what does this have to do with weight loss? The answer is – a lot.
When toxins enter the body if you are unable to completely eliminate them they get stored in the tissues of the body. The body then surrounds the toxins with fat and water. So the more toxic a person’s body is, the fat and water they’re going to carry around. Has anyone seen the classic “beer belly”? I think we can all agree that alcohol is a toxin, right? When you look at someone with a beer belly does it look like all fat or all water? Or does it look more like a combination of both? The body surrounds these toxins with fat and water to insulate the rest of the body tissues from these toxins, a protection mechanism. You can sweat as much as you want and diet as much as you want yet the body will not let go of the fat and water around these toxins. The only way I have found to rid one’s self of this extra fat and water to achieve weight loss is through detoxification.
This is detoxification of the body’s tissues specifically through the liver and kidneys. At Holistic Health Center in Alpharetta we have a cleanse we use to help accomplish this to aid patients in the detoxification process and achieve weight loss. Once the toxins are removed from the body then the body can sweat out the water and burn up the fat leading to weight loss. This is not a run to the bathroom type cleanse either. The cleanse consists of meal replacement shakes to help ensure the body is being properly fueled for the detoxification process as well as cleansing drinks to help the liver and kidneys to mobilize toxins out of the body tissues. Although there is some restriction on what is eaten during the cleanse this is to ensure that the body has enough food and nutrients to stay properly fueled and that no extra goes to fat storage so weight loss is maximized. The fasting days are designed to give the body a chance to tap into its stored fuel supply, the fat storage. People typically note feeling the best on the fasting days. Fat is a more efficient fuel source per gram burned then carbohydrate however it does take longer to break down. Mostly people note in addition to weight loss, feeling lighter, having more energy, improved sleep, clothes fitting better and an overall increased enjoyment for life.
Toxins can not only affect a person’s ability for weight loss yet they can also cause hormones not to work right on cells, leave one feeling sluggish and lethargic, lead to depression and an overall lack of desire.
