The Biggest Losers… Post TV study……
Why the Biggest Losers “winners” relapsed and put their weight back.
A 6 year study of the Biggest Losers, a popular TV reality program on weight loss is a real breakthrough and helps prove our strategy; that long term success requires addressing the hormonal issues that affect metabolism and cravings! Knowing what to do will take the anxiety and worry out of maintaining your goal.
What most people don’t realise is that when we lose weight (or when we exercise) our insulin levels rise to protect us from starvation. Insulin causes food cravings to inspire us to eat more…So as we reduce our food or increase our exercise the body responds by increasing insulin production to make us feel hungry and eat more……GREAT!!!
In the case of Diabetes we want to increase insulin so we recommend exercise to help keep insulin high and glucose low. In the case of dieters this is not ideal, as the insulin rises so will hunger and the need to eat more!
Fortunately, if you are someone who craves carbs then we can support the mechanism to keep insulin low.
- Thorne Berberine-500 1 capsule twice daily. It may eliminate cravings by lowering insulin levels
- Chromium 1mg daily
- Vitamin D 2000 iu daily may help to switch off a perpetual hunger
Once you get past the insulin issue then consider that neurotransmitter-deficiency causes cravings and if not addressed may cause anyone to eat their way back into their weight even if the metabolism is nicely balanced.
Will power is not enough 99% of the time to manage what is actually a nutrient/biochemical deficiency. If you want long term success then request a consultation to assess your specific needs.
