Have you tried to lose weight using all the traditional methods, and failed? Do you have to work harder than others, just to lose a few pounds? Do you gain it back more quickly than you should? Are you always tired, do you struggle to get a good night's sleep? If so, you're not alone and it's not something you're doing wrong.
You might be missing a piece of the puzzle.
For decades, the weight loss industry has been built upon the model: calories-in, calories-out. They say that as long as you consume fewer calories than you burn, you will lose weight.
Sounds logical, right? Just eat less and exercise more and watch the inches fall off. Simple!
The problem is that it quite often doesn't work. If it did, you wouldn't be reading this.
When the calories-in/calories-out model does not work, it usually means that there is something wrong with the most sophisticated, complex machine in the whole universe: the human body and it's internal messengers -- hormones.
Hormones regulate everything from appetite to metabolism. They put you to bed at night and wake you in the morning. They control your heart rate and blood pressure. They calm down anxieties and relieve depression. They help you digest your meals. They fight stress and infections. And they are responsible for the burning and storage of fat.
Now what if your body is not producing a sufficient amount of one of these essential hormones? It happens! We get older and often the body is not as efficient as it used to be. Or maybe you just inherited faulty genes. (Thanks, Mom and Dad). In those cases, we end up wasting a lot of time and effort trying to lose weight that just does not come off, nor will it until we solve the deeper problem. Any and all attempts to lose fat without first restoring your hormones to their proper levels will be in vain.
Jillian Michaels, from NBC's The Biggest Loser, learned that the hard way. She had a hormone imbalance that prevented her from losing weight. She recently wrote:
I have logged many hours in the gym. I have literally worked my butt off for the body that I have.
But that's my point: Despite all of that work, my body still wasn't responding the way it should have, which is when I realized I was missing a piece of the puzzle. Today, it kills me to realize that I could've done half the work to get the body I have, had I just known then what I know now.
Now I know that the solution to living happily and healthily is hormone balance...When I learned how to eat and live in a way that balanced and optimized levels of key hormones, most of my weight-loss battle was won before I even set foot in the gym. (Master Your Metabolism, Crown Publishers , 9).
The reality is that you do not need to lose weight in order to feel good. Instead, you need to feel good in order to lose weight!
You have finally found a weight loss system that will help you do just that -- feel better. We have been treating hormone imbalances for over 23 years. Thousands of our patients have not only lost weight, but have been restored to new life. They have more energy. They sleep better and awake more refreshed. In short, they just feel better. That is when the inches finally fall off, and stay off.
