Weight Loss

Weight Loss and Fitness

Frustrated because you’re putting on pounds and don’t know why? It’s time to shed the weight, look and feel great, and discover A NEW WAY TO AGE. 

Generally, an imbalance of energy is the culprit causing weight gain and obesity. To keep a healthy balance of energy, you must take in equal amounts of energy as you put out. The “in” is the amount of calories or energy you get from food and drinks. The “out” is the amount of energy you expend, like during physical activity. When you take in more calories than you use, over time the pounds add on. There are many contributing factors to an energy imbalance. The most obvious is an inactive lifestyle combined with unhealthy foods and overeating. But blaming poor nutrition and inactivity is only scratching the surface of this very weighty issue.

How Aging May Affect Your Weight

Your age could be negatively affecting your weight. As we get older, our hormones such as testosterone and DHEA decline, which may lead to an increase in body fat. At the same time, our thyroid levels drop, slowing down the metabolism. Advancing age is also associated with reduced insulin sensitivity, which may impact appetite control. These changes happen at the same time when people are often becoming less active, further reducing their energy output. 

And then, there’s stress, food allergies, and toxins. We live with them every day. Faced with stressful situations, our adrenal hormones surge and our bodies go into survival mode, slowing down our digestion. Chronic stress can result in more unwanted pounds. There’s also the growing number of food allergies that can potentially cause inflammation, destabilizing insulin and blood sugar levels, contributing to fat accumulation. 

Not to mention the connection between weight gain and toxic overload. The chemicals we ingest daily is worrying, from processed foods filled with additives to preservatives, artificial ingredients, and more. Once in our system, these substances may cause digestive disorders, leading us right back to those unwanted pounds. 

Weight gain is more than an aesthetic concern — it can have serious effects on your health. Being overweight is linked to many chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, diabetes, and several types of cancer.

Achieving and Maintaining a Healthy Weight

But luckily there is good news. You can regain your energy balance, and achieve a healthy weight. It’s all about managing the multiplicity of molecular factors at the cellular level that stand between you and successful weight loss. Integrative medicine offers a wide variety of approaches, depending on your individual needs. 

A healthy diet, nutrition, and regular exercise are all essential. In order to address any hormone imbalances, your weight management plan may include Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), when you take hormones identical to the ones produced by the human body. Taking science-based weight loss supplements may also help you achieve your goals. And remember, Forever Health is a great resource to find the supplements you need, from formulas that prevent fat cells from developing, to those that boost your metabolism, curb your appetite, and more.
