If you are struggling with weight loss and diabetes despite eating a good diet and exercising your butt off, it may be the load of toxins in your body interfering with your metabolism.
Any of the following symptoms could a sign that your body is filled with toxins: having bowel movements only every other day or less often, having concentration and memory problems, headaches, fatigue, muscle aches and more.
The old idea that weight gain is simply a matter of calories in-calories-out is falling apart. New evidence shows that weight gain can occur in the absence of excess calorie intake. For example, in a recent study, rats given toxic chemicals gained weight and increased their fat storage without increased caloric intake or decreased exercise. In six months, these rats were 20 percent heavier and had 36% more body fat that rats not exposed to those chemicals.
What this comes down to is that if you are toxic, you can gain weight without eating any more calories or doing any less exercise. Toxins interfere with and slow down metabolism and contribute to weight gain and diabetes. Scientists have shown that toxins cause increases in glucose, cholesterol and slow down your thyroid function. They also may cause an increase in appetite and problems with brain signals that control hunger.
If you don’t feel like eating less calories, or exercising more, why not try to switch to a whole, real foods diet with no funny ingredients you can’t even pronounce and you might just be amazed with the results.
