You might be surprised how weight loss programs negatively effect weight loss!
What are the Causes of Obesity?
1. Genetics? These determine body shape, bone density, muscle mass etc. Just because you have family members with obesity it does not mean that is your destiny. Because weight loss programs are so heavily promoted they probably have been on many diets which make people get fatter each time, because they never learn how to do Responsive or Intuitive Eating or follow the inner belly wisdom when eating.
A very small percentage of bodies are actually genetically large. An example is the Samoan people, they are large but that doesn’t mean they have to be over weight or have "obesity" and they can be very healthy. Their bone density and muscle mass is also larger so their % body fat is low. Especially if they are eating being guided by the inner belly wisdom like I teach this website.
2. Organ damage? Damage to the pituitary gland, thyroid, or loss of bodily sensations like taste, etc.can cause obesity. Research shows this is only < 1 % of obese population, not the general population, have these issues & hypo-thyroid can be regulated with medication.
years of weight loss programs or dieting and then overeating when the diet stops eventually causes increase in % body fat which can
feel similar to organ damage.
This can be reversed & healed to a great extent by using Responsive Eating & following the guidance of the body’s inner wisdom being explained in this website.
3. DIETING and weight loss programs can eventually make you fat and create ongoing obesity!
Yep, shocking, I know but completely true. If you have dieted more than once you already see this in your experience.
The Non-diet Approach taught on this site for meal planning, guided by connecting to the belly wisdom is best with people who are deprivation sensitive and have been through many diets.
That is the wisdom and teaching you will get on this website and with the materials recommended here.
Dieting contributes to a Loss of Mental Connection with the body wisdom of hunger/fullness/body cravings-(or not consistent immediate response to hunger). The body adapts by becoming more efficient at storing more and more body fat and creating obesity.
4. NOT EXERCISING, we have a natural “hunger” to be active. The loss of connection with body's natural desire to move or be active results in a loss of muscle mass and core strength.
5. Not getting enough sleep and neuro-chemical or hormonal imbalances
6. STRESS- How you perceive life determines your stress level-What you think can make you hold onto fat!
This can be prevented & corrected with using energy medicine and EFT.
Guess what the statistics are with the success of dieting?
95-98% of dieting attempts fail at sustained weight loss, and most dieters fall into the yo-yo diet cycle.
fails the dieter! Obesity is the end result.
Negative changes in the body from dieting.
All of these negative changes from dieting are reversible using Responsive Eating and Healthy Exercise with some Strength training.
So now that you know the Causes of Obesity you can begin to interrupt this from re-occurring in your life.
All the information on this site is the solution!
It is actually what you knew to do as a baby, it is what you did automatically with food and exercise.
You just got disconnected but now you can return to that wisdom with the guidance of the teachings on this site.
So be encouraged.... the struggle will soon be over!
I was overweight and struggled with weight loss myself.. Use the inner wisdom and weight loss tips I learned about and it will be the missing link for success with any diet plans.
Using EFT for weigh loss can interrupt food cravings & the impulse to eat when you are not hungry. It also can help you change your beliefs & change your body energetics (vibration)!
