"Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same." ~ Unknown
Weight is often attributed solely to food intake...or lack thereof. It is true that what you eat, when you eat, and how much you eat can impact weight, but your hormones, thyroid, stress, inflammation, and gut health can negatively impact your metabolism and your ability to lose and maintain a healthy weight.
If I eat right and exercise, shouldn't I be able to control my weight?
Maybe. Weight is affected by more than just food and working out. Hormones and thyroid imbalances can greatly affect your body's ability to store and burn fat. Stress will also cause your body to store fat as a means of protection.
Is inflammation contributing to my weight issues?
Yes! Inflammation is the immune system's corrective response to what it perceives as injury. And this is a great! Inflammation can help us heal. However when inflammation becomes chronic; the body begins attacking itself resulting in autoimmune conditions, weight retention, and weight gain.
Will my body show signs of inflammation?
Yes! Joint pain and achiness, headaches, insomnia, brain fog, depression, irritability, anxiety, food cravings, and light headedness are all signs of inflammation. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, your body will focus its healing abilities and energy to address them rather than working to lose weight.
