Adults Benefit From Weight Loss If Overweight or Obese

FattyWhat if you have tried and tried to lose weight and you have some success but always seem to put the weight back on?  You are not alone. I have struggled since college, keeping my weight down. I think in the college years it was unlimited all-you-can-eat cafeteria plus beer!  As I’ve aged, I don’t drink, I eat reasonably well but it is still a struggle.  Why is it hard and is it worth trying to lose weight? 

It is hard for most of us due to the diet we eat. We are eating processed flour carbohydrates that act like sugar and stimulate huge releases of insulin which tells our bodies to store fat. Have you noticed that most weight-loss approaches that work, limit your processed carbohydrates?

The good news in this study: “Lifelong patterns of BMI and cardiovascular phenotype in individuals ages 60-64 in the 1946 British birth cohort study: an epidemiological study”, is that any attempts at weight loss that were successful will reduce your cardiovascular risk.  I should be golden, for all the attempts I have made!

 

If at first you don’t succeed try and try again!

  • When I began working with a naturopath a few months ago, she took me off grains and I lost 15 pounds in a month and a half. While my goal wasn’t to lose weight in and of itself, I couldn’t believe it. Even healthy foods (in my case whole grains, brown rice, quinoa, etc.) need to be eaten in moderation.

    Now if I could just kick my sweet tooth!
