If you focus on losing weight first and not the health part you may or may not end up healthy. Healthy people do not actually gain weight if you are truly healthy you are not going to be overweight in the first place.
It all depends on what is happening with your insulin and cortisol hormones.
• Acute Stress (Short Term) – lowers insulin, which means you may lose weight.
• Chronic Stress (Long Term) – increases insulin, which converts glucose into fat. You would gain weight.
The body‘s response to long-term stress is to spike cortisol and adrenaline. Cortisol has the potential to increase insulin, which releases glucose from your liver and dumps that stored sugar into your bloodstream. Insulin has to take it into storage as fat. That is why some people gain weight.
We will hear from Dr. Raymond Francis and Sam Tonkin For Mail online.
Raymond Francis, D.Sc., M.Sc., RNC has been called a “brilliant advanced thinker” and has been cited as “one of the few scientists who has achieved a breakthrough understanding of health and disease.”
Raymond is an internationally recognized leader in the field of optimal-health maintenance and a pioneer in transforming our failed disease-care system to a true health-care system. He is a chemist by training, a graduate of M.I.T., a bestselling author, and a world-class speaker.
He has written five breakthrough books, the international bestseller Never Be Sick Again, Never Be Fat Again, Never Fear Cancer Again, Never Feel Old Again, and The Great American Health Hoax.
Toxins and Lack of Nutrients Cause Weight Gain – Raymond Francis
The main cells in your immune system are the white blood cells. Your immune system is also made up of friendly bacteria known collectively is called the microbiome or flora. Those microbes help you in many ways from absorption of nutrients, to recycling of bile, to immune defenses. They’ll make it so there’s just not enough space or food for a pathogen to live.
Our white blood cells actually make enzymes to help break down and kill microbes and pathogens. Our white blood cells generate mucus and inflammation and these pathogens get caught up in this mucus web, it’s like quicksand.
Our immune system has a memory. When there’s a microbe that actually comes back into our body, the immune system actually tags it because it as a memory of that and it can destroy it. So it actually learns over time by being exposed to pathogens. That’s called building up your immune system and this is why as a child it’s not very healthy to keep a child just so utterly sterile that they’re never exposed or they’re never sick. It’s a natural part of building the immune system.
