When looking at weight management in the case of plateaued and stubborn weight loss it is more a matter of energy production and distribution than one of calorie intake.
Decades of studies on how our body mobilises energy by Dr. Richard Johnson, chief of the Division of Renal Diseases and Hypertension at the University of Colorado, are now clearly demonstrating that those who are obese eat more because they have triggered a “fat laying switch” with poor food choices and exercise less because of a low energy state.
The key points of his research have revealed that:
Fructose is found in unnaturally high amounts in
It is also possible, as demonstrated by Dr Johnson’s research, that “under certain conditions – insulin resistance, diabetes, or simply overweight – complex carbohydrates (whole grains, cereals, pasta, potatoes etc.) are converted to fructose. The main marker for this fat making conversion of carbs to fructose is Uric acid."
Uric acid is very simple to test in the blood and an indicator of poor energy conversion leading to fat storing instead of fat burning. The associated symptoms are fatigue and weight gain as well as elevated blood pressure, cardio-vascular diseases and inflammation/pain (the symptoms normally used as markers in metabolic syndrome).
For effective long term weight management (especially when excess weight is stubborn and accompanied by general fatigue and/or insulin resistance) and to positively influence metabolism (energy mobilisation in the cell) it is essential to:
• Detoxify uric acid by doing regular liver and kidney cleansing • Regular fasting of between 12 and 24hours supported by bowel clearing/colonic irrigation. For more information on detoxification and how to use it to support a healthy metabolism contact colonicpracticelondon.co.uk
