While the title may seem simple, and it is… keeping weight off is not about just:
- Taking a diet pill
- Exercising for an hour every day
- Calorie cutting
It is more about intermittent fasting to keep insulin down.
Combating weight gain, or losing weight, is not easy. We are told so many conflicting views it is hard to sort out the beneficial information from the useless. Many of us have tried to cut back on our intake, and have even succeeded in losing some weight, but in a few short weeks have gained it all again.
Weight gain (or loss), is about the balance of our hormones, and the two biggest impactors in this subtle dance, are insulin and cortisol.
Understanding how to make the food choices that will benefit us, when faced with a buffet table, is more easily sustained when we can understand ‘why’ certain choices are better than others. Why does insulin play such a big role and why do I gain weight when I am stressed?
The 4 brief explanations linked below, will help you understand more about what goes on in the cells that adds weight to our hips…or bum, and what we can do to combat this challenge.
Faced with choices, many of us become paralysed by the sheer magnitude of differing views and end up doing nothing, but if one can make just ONE change, intermittent fasting and in so doing, addressing insulin, is the first on the list.
The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting:
2020 has taught us that none of us is immune to tragedy and health susceptibility with the COVID pandemic, and according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the top five comorbidities are hypertension, obesity, chronic lung conditions like TB, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma and cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and cardiovascular conditions like coronary heart disease, congenital heart disease …
One of the most impactful changes we each can make for ourselves is to lose weight, but despite the profound benefits of doing this, the practicalities are challenging.
At the end of 2020, I sent out a series of short, lunchtime lectures to help you understand how insulin (even if you are not diabetic) negatively impacts health and weight gain.
Thank you for your feedback, and here is the series of lectures. Starting with the one on intermittent fasting. If you are like me you may want to just jump into the best practical solution but the other three lectures are worth going through to help you understand why intermittent fasting is so beneficial. Enjoy and please connect with me if you have any questions.
The previous 3 lectures that will help you make the necessary weight loss changes are as follows:
In addition. As mentioned in the lecture, here is the link for the full weight loss course at the special price. You pay only 15 dollars, but for a limited time. This offer ends on the 23 February 2021
Have fun, and please connect with me if you have preferences for other lunchtime lectures.
