Each patient has different reasons or causes of their weight issue and therefore each patient will have their own unique solution. Here are some commonalities among stubborn weight cases that I can address in this future doc column:
Your workout! Yes, your workout could be actually aggravating your belly fat issue! Many stubborn weight cases are due to exhausted stress glands, the adrenal. Whipping the tired adrenals with heavy physical workouts increases fat storage and decreases fat burning. Future Doc methods can determine whether or not you’re an “Adrenal” case.
Are you drinking orange juice or eating bananas? O.j. and banana consumption can contribute greatly to overall carbohydrate intake. CARB reduction is a must in nearly every belly fat case. Concentrated sugars, even if in “healthy fruits”, are especially high in bananas and sweet fruit juices such as orange juice.
Whole grain bread! The bread, whole grain or not….quickly converts to sugar in the body which causes more fat production and storage while decreasing fat burning.
I hope that you find these tips helpful and healthful. Please join me Wednesday, September 21 from 5:30-6:30pm at Greenbrier Chiropractic Center for a nutrition seminar discussing “Body Types: Belly Fat & Metabolism.” I will discuss the 4 body type system of weight loss, why people store fat in different places, the 3 most common mistakes trying to lose weight, why exercise and diet may worsen your metabolism, and I will separate out myths from fact on fat burning. You will also learn why sit-ups never work for belly fat and key foods to eat for your body type!
This seminar is free and highly informative for anyone who is struggling with weight and other health issues. They will have complimentary hors d’Ouevres and refreshments. If you have any questions, please call the office at 304-645-6080. This seminar takes place here at Greenbrier Chiropractic Center on Rt 219 N. in Lewisburg, WV. (just 3 minutes north of Walmart).
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and the cause and prevention of disease.
