Winning the Weight War
by Extraordinary Health Writers

 

Weight management is an ongoing battle for many people, but your diet and lifestyle can either fight for you or against you when it comes to taming your weight. Truth be told, a typical Western diet and lifestyle can wreak havoc on your weight, but there are ways to help win the weight war.

But just what is a typical Western diet and lifestyle, and how can they work against a healthy weight? Glad you asked! Western diets are characterized by processed foods, including unhealthy carbs, fats and proteins which can also have toxins called obesogens in them that can lead to obesity. Likewise, the Western lifestyle is a stressed-filled one that is short on regular, adequate exercise and sufficient sleep. Combined, these can lead to a sluggish metabolism, imbalanced blood sugar levels, resulting in food cravings and weight gain as well as stress hormones (such as cortisol) which can also lead to overeating and weight gain.

It’s no wonder, then, that many people struggle with achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. However, one way to win the weight war is to consume an organic diet—without prohibited toxins, including those nasty obesogens—and to be sure to include clean proteins to stoke your body’s fat-burning ability and to retain muscle.† Implementing a whole-body, pure detoxification program to prepare your body (including the liver) to work at optimal capacity for overall health and a healthy weight can be beneficial as well.† Likewise, it’s important to balance blood sugar levels to combat out-of-control cravings and weight gain.† Of course, stress management, getting adequate sleep and getting enough exercise are helpful, too.

When it comes to detoxification, some crucial areas to detoxify include the liver, colon, kidneys, lymphatic system as well as muscle tissue and the bloodstream. For example, detoxifying the liver is critical, since the liver is the “chief detoxifier” of the body. However, it’s also important for weight management, since a healthily functioning liver enables a healthy functioning metabolism that properly metabolizes foods eaten.† In fact, the liver is highly involved in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, in storing vitamins and minerals and in many bodily processes such as blood sugar regulation and in hormone levels—all of which impact weight.†

Getting rid of toxins, which can contribute to obesity, is essential—and having an optimally functioning liver helps the body detoxify properly. Unfortunately, the liver and other detoxification organs are often bogged down due to diet and lifestyle patterns. The bottom line is that eliminating those toxins and boosting your body’s natural detoxification system is a necessary part of long-term weight management as well as a healthy metabolism.†

Metabolism and blood sugar levels also play roles in weight management. Many things can slow your metabolism down. For instance, aging—after age 30—decreases muscle and increases fat content for your overall weight and slows down calorie burning. Likewise, stress can chemically and hormonally alter metabolism through stress hormones such as cortisol, opening the door to craving—and eating—junk foods. That’s a double-edged sword, too, since a processed food or junk food diet can put the brakes on your metabolism. Hormonal shifts such as menopause can also slow down metabolism. A clean diet and regular exercise can also go a long way to help rev your metabolism.

And speaking of hormones . . . one hormone, insulin, is key to weight management, since it regulates blood sugar levels in the body. In turn, blood sugar levels affect how hungry and energetic we feel and determine whether we burn fat or store fat—all of which factor into weight.† Avoiding insulin spikes from processed, sugary or unheatlhy carb-filled foods is wise as is eating several healthy small meals a day to keep your insulin levels balanced.

So, if you want to win the weight war this year, then you may want to give these a try!

Metabolism-Boosting Exercises

Not all exercises are the same, and certain exercises are more likely to boost your metabolism than others, including strength training, aerobic workouts and circuit training. Take a look:

Strength Training: Strength training exercises, otherwise known as muscle-building exercises, help to build lean muscles. In turn, lean muscles burn more calories than fatty tissue—even when you’re not exercising—and the more lean muscles you build, the more efficiently your metabolism will function. Some strength training exercises to try include using your own body weight via lunges, pull ups and squats; using free weights and resistance bands.

Aerobic Exercise: Aerobic exercise, also known as cardiovascular exercise, is required in order to burn calories, since it is vigorous exercise which elevates the heart rate for at least 12 minutes at a time. Some aerobic exercises to try include: running, hiking, biking, brisk walking and jumping on a trampoline. They can help make you leaner and stronger, leading to increased metabolism. Try to fit in 30 or 40 minutes of aerobic exercise daily—all at once or in two or three shorter sessions.

Circuit Training: When you combine strength training with aerobic workouts, then you get huge benefits. But to get those benefits in half the time, try circuit training. For example, pick an aerobic exercise such as the elliptical machine for 12 minutes, and then switch to resistance bands. Use them to perform five minutes of upper- or lower-body exercises. Then return to an aerobic exercise for 12 minutes, followed by five minutes of a different form of strength training or different resistance band exercises. In just 34 minutes, you’ve created your own circuit training, covering your bases with both strength training and aerobic exercise. Of course, there are other circuit training options out there, but the possibilities are plenty.

Give that metabolism a boost with one or all of these exercises!
