Fox Integrated Healthcare has a blueprint to weight loss. It’s a simple, fast, fun weight loss program that allows our patients to have an auto-pilot program with fast, permanent results.
It’s an easy-to-follow weight loss, detoxification, and healthy living program that is very effective. In fact, we see people lose between half a pound and a pound of fat per day.
Are You Ready for REAL Results?
Most weight loss programs out there are great but if you follow up with the participants just three months later, the weight is already starting to come back and they’re discouraged which causes them to just gain more weight.
This typically happens because most weight loss programs don’t address the real root causes of weight gain and aren’t physician supervised or customized to the specific needs of the patient.
So, if you want simple, fast, and permanent weight loss, you have to address the root cause of the weight gain. That’s why our program doesn’t include pills to swallow or any supplements that you have to continue using after you reach your goal.
What we’ve realized after asking hundreds of patients what they think the root cause of their weight gain may be, is that they have no idea. Most of the time we hear things like, they are eating too much and moving too little. We all wish it was that simple!
The 8 Root Causes of Weight Gain
Candida is a fungal infection caused by yeasts. One of the many unwelcome symptoms of Candida overgrowth is weight gain, or the difficulty in losing weight. The imbalance of bad bacteria in the gut caused by Candida yeast can slow down your metabolism and disrupt normal detoxification processes, resulting in stubborn weight gain that refuses to budge. Losing weight can seem like an uphill battle, no matter how little you eat or how much exercise you do each day.
Worst of all, Candida overgrowth can interfere with your appetite, making it difficult to stick to a healthy diet.
Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. During this complex biochemical process, calories in food and beverages are combined with oxygen to release the energy your body needs to function.
Our bodies burn calories in several ways:
- Through the energy required to keep the body functioning at rest; this is known as your basal metabolic rate (BMR). Your BMR is partly determined by the genes you inherit.
- Through everyday activities
- Through exercise
As we age the metabolism naturally slows down. However, there are many effective ways to increase your metabolism no matter what your age. We talk about these ways in our program.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck. It produces hormones that control the speed of your metabolism — the system that helps the body use energy. Thyroid disorders can slow down or rev up metabolism by disrupting the production of thyroid hormones. When hormone levels become too low or too high, you may experience a wide range of symptoms.
An unexplained change in weight is one of the most common signs of a thyroid disorder. Weight gain may signal low levels of thyroid hormones, a condition called hypothyroidism. In contrast, if the thyroid produces more hormones than the body needs, you may lose weight unexpectedly. This is known as hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is far more common.
Changing your diet and focusing on the nutrients that support thyroid function can be greatly effective and benefical to weight loss.
Many women report that changing estrogen levels affect their weight, particularly around menopause. They may notice that they are gaining weight, or that it is more difficult to lose weight. Estrogen levels can be low in women for many reasons.
The most common reason for low estrogen is menopause. Our program addresses hormonal imbalance and how it impacts your weight.
Stress plays a large role in weight gain. While it can make you have less of an appetite at first, long-term “chronic” stress actually boosts your hunger.
Most of us become overeaters when we’re feeling a lot of pressure. This happens thanks to your fight-or-flight response, a.k.a. survival mode — once your body reaches a certain stress level, it does what it feels it needs to. In most cases, that means overeat.
Why? Because your body thinks you’ve used calories to deal with your stress, even though you haven’t. As a result, it thinks you need to replenish those calories, even though you don’t.
Levels of “the stress hormone,” cortisol, rise during tension-filled times. This can turn your overeating into a habit. Because increased levels of the hormone also help cause higher insulin levels, your blood sugar drops and you crave sugary, fatty foods.
6. Brain-Based Food Cravings
How do food cravings work? Our evolutionary history provides some clues.
The hunger loop operates out of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain. The reward system, on the other hand, is located in the center of the brain. It involves many regions of the brain, such as the ventral tegmental area, the nucleus accumbens, and the prefrontal cortex.
The reward circuitry exists to make you feel good when you participate in activities that are important for survival, such as eating. So, when you eat a delicious cheeseburger, especially when you’re hungry, the reward system releases a neurotransmitter called dopamine that triggers feelings of pleasure. The reward pathway is connected to areas associated with memory and behavior. So once you finish your meal and find it pleasurable (reward), your brain will remember this behavior and make sure you repeat it in the future.
The key is understanding how this behavior works and work to rewire yourself to think differently about food and only eat when you’re actually hungry.
A body filled with toxic substances, such as heavy metals, is often confined in a state of weight-loss resistance, wherein the body cannot lose weight. Until toxins are cleared from the body, individuals will struggle to lose weight, regardless of following a strict diet or exercise protocol.
Toxins also make it very difficult to lose weight. Fat cells crammed with toxic compounds don’t function very well. These malfunctioning cells often over-release leptin, which burns out receptors, leading to leptin resistance. Leptin is a hormone that regulates eating and fat burning. Leptin resistance tells our bodies that we need more food and need to store more fat even when there’s plenty of it stockpiled away. This drive to overeat makes losing pounds problematic, especially if the body keeps insisting on hoarding more fat at the same time.
The goal here is to rid your body of toxins, our blueprint addresses this process.
8. Food Management
Healthy eating is one of the best things you can do to prevent and control health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer.
