“Overweight” and “obesity” are both labels for ranges of weight that are greater than what is generally considered healthy for a given height. The terms also identify ranges of weight that have been shown to increase the likelihood of certain diseases and other health problems.
According to the Centres for Disease Control: “For adults, overweight and obesity ranges are determined by using weight and height to calculate a number called the “body mass index” (BMI). BMI is used because, for most people, it correlates with their amount of body fat.”
An adult who has a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight. An adult who has a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese.
However, it’s important to note that BMI isn’t always an accurate indicator if someone is overweight or obese, especially if someone is muscular. The good news is there are three steps to treat obesity naturally, including starting on a healthy diet, doing weekly exercise and using natural supplements.
- Weight gain
- Increased level of body fat
Obesity is an excess of body weight caused
by overconsumption of calories and physical inactivity. Some other causes may include hormonal imbalances, stress, medical conditions, genetics, toxins or a side e ect of medications.
Foods To Eat
High fiber foods: Vegetables, nuts, seeds and berries increase satiety, without increasing calories.
Clean, lean protein: People who eat at least 3 to 4 ounces of protein per meal, such as grass-fed beef, free-range poultry, pastured eggs, wild-caught fish and organic protein powder, tend to feel more satisfied and eat less overall.
Wild-caught fish: Obesity may increase inflammation, so try to include omega-3 fats.
Coconut: Coconut oil and coconut milk contain medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) that your body can easily burn as fat and are less likely to be stored as fat compared to other fats.
Diets: Avoid getting too hungry, which can cause you to overeat later. Eat smaller meals about every 4 hours. Also, a very di erent strategy called intermittent fasting can aid in weight loss where you eat during a 4-8 hour window between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. The ketogenic diet is another popular diet that can aid in weight loss consuming mostly fat, small amounts of protein and little to no carbohydrates.
Foods To Not to Eat
See the liver loving guide for the full list of ingredients. Stick to this plan and if you need to increase your protein then up it according to your body type.
Sugar: Increases hunger and leads to the consumption of empty calories. Processed and junk foods: These foods are meant to be addictive, and the quantity may be hard to control. Wheat and Bread, and all flour items are refinded carbs and turn to glucose more quickly than sugar itself.
Refined flour: Refined products are also addictive and may lead to overeating.
Sweetened beverages: Most people do not account for the calories in the beverages before consuming them, which has a large e ect on weight gain.
Trans and hydrogenated fats: These fats promote inflammation and are only found in foods devoid of any real nutrients. Avoid hydrogenated oils, such
as canola, soybean, cottonseed and vegetable oils, and even some “natural” oils, such as sa lower and sunflower, which can be partially hydrogenated.
What You Can Do to Loss the Potential Energy
1 Green co ee extract (follow product instructions) has been shown to help promote weight loss.
2 CLA (6,000 mg, two times daily) In clinical studies, CLA supports building lean muscle mass and metabolism.
3 Green tea extract (1,500 mg, daily), may increase the body’s ability to burn energy.
4 Rhodiola (500 mg, daily), can help with long-term fat-loss by lowering cortisol and helping your body burn fat for energy.
5 Chromium (500 mcg, daily), helps reduce cravings for sweets and can maintain blood sugar control.
Helpful oils include: Cinnamon and Grapefruit
To use: Using essential oils for obesity can support weight loss and hunger cravings, with grapefruit and cinnamon being the most e ective. Take 2 drops of grapefruit and 1 drop of cinnamon internally for 30 days as part of a weight loss program.
Follow the program outlined by Tania. It works. If it has not worked you have been eating things that are not on the list. Look at your lifestyle and assess the areas that are your weaknesses and then replace them with new healthier options. Exercise is a key component in weight loss. All activity is e ective but interval training (aka burst training) is the fastest way to promote fat loss.
