What are the main factors in the Rapid Metabolic Weight Loss Program?
Addressing Stubborn Weight
Weight loss is not as simple as ‘calories in, calories out’! We all know the basic principle of metabolism, however, in the presence of metabolic imbalances, the body is in survival mode and switches to a “fat storage” bank, using calories from essential muscle and other tissue. This muscle burning creates a vicious cycle of stress and stubborn weight, typically seen on the midsection and thighs. In today’s lifestyle, the equation is not always what you “take in” versus what you “burn off”, but more so what your body hangs on to.
Maintaining Lean Muscle
To off-set the muscle eating effects (as mentioned above), supporting and stimulating lean muscles with adequate protein and exercise is essential. We need to preserve muscle mass by increasing protein consumption as high as 0.5-1.0 gm of protein per/lb of body weight while adding 15-30 minutes of weight or resistance training a few times a week. Maintaining lean muscle also helps to burn fat in the long run.
Regulating Blood Sugar
Dietary changes include limiting sucrose, carbohydrates with a high glycemic index (anything over 50), and high fructose corn syrup. These create a rapid sugar and insulin spike and then a rapid crash, which causes your cells to store fat and signals you to eat more. Constant elevated insulin tells the body you’re in “trouble”, causing fat cells to shut down and go into protection mode. This starts the vicious muscle eating cycle, making it impossible to burn fat. This is why insulin testing is part of our metabolic program.
Addressing Metabolic Imbalances
Consistent action brings consistent results. Successfully training your body to burn fat and keep it off must include balancing appetite, food cravings and binge eating, which are triggered by stress, and hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances. We know that 90% of overweight people struggle with hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances. These imbalances affect every system in the body, and are made even worse with Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Wellbutrin, etc. Your hormone levels may be tested and treated with our Bio-Identical Hormone therapy.
Regulating Stress and Emotions
Desire, direction and the right metabolic support replaces the struggle with willpower and self-control. A body at peace does not gain weight, and in order to truly be successful, your emotional component through our Science of Optimal Happiness program will be considered as part of your treatment.
EnerChanges’ weight loss program addresses all of these concerns and produces consistent, long-lasting weight loss results. Even for those who have become frustrated, having tried diet after diet and have still been unable to lose weight or keep it off, our weight loss program offers long-term retraining of fat cells that has shown consistent safe, rapid and comfortable fat loss.
