After a won­der­ful sum­mer season, it is not un­com­mon for many of us to pack on a few ex­tra pounds. Whether you have 5, 15 or 50 pounds to lose – the fall is an ideal time of year to start a new weight loss jour­ney and fi­nally be­come your best self. If you are like many and have tried ev­ery fad diet in the world– it is time to STOP! Yo yo di­et­ing and fluc­tu­a­tions of weight will even­tu­ally lead to a slug­gish metabolism and fur­ther weight gain. The di­ets that are “red flags” and are best to avoid are: • di­ets that rec­om­mend less than 1000 calo­ries/day; • di­ets that com­pletely elim­i­nate one of the three macronu­tri­ents — car­bo­hy­drates, pro­tein or fats; • di­ets that prom­ise long term “rapid” weight loss; • di­ets that offer a magic bul­let ap­proach. What is the an­swer for long term weight loss suc­cess? Hor­monal bal­ance and qual­ity calo­ries! Hor­monal weight loss im­ple­ments a spe­cific ap­proach to eat­ing that al­lows the in­di­vid­ual to lose weight, boost en­ergy and en­ter a dis­ease preven­tion mode. In a nut shell, the ba­sis of hor­monal weight loss bal­ances the in­ter­play be­tween in­sulin (the fat stor­age hor­mone) and glucagon (the hor­mone the breaks down fat) to help the in­di­vid­ual lose weight. Re­search is very clear that los­ing weight is not just a "calo­ries in and calo­ries out" ap­proach. Blood sug­ars and hor­mones are the key to long term suc­cess. Symp­toms you will ex­pe­ri­ence if you are out of hor­monal bal­ance may in­clude; • low en­ergy; • fa­tigue after eat­ing a meal; • su­gar crav­ings (crav­ings are not a sign that you are weak! Rather, they are an in­di­ca­tion that you are hor­mon­ally and bio­chem­i­cally “off” due to faulty food choices); • ex­cess fat stor­age espe­cially around the ab­dom­i­nal region. When picking any weight loss pro­gram, a key ques­tion you should ask your­self is, “Can I see my­self fol­low­ing a ver­sion of this pro­gram within a 5 year pe­riod?” If the an­swer is no, don’t do it! Your weight loss ap­proach should be sus­tain­able and easy to main­tain at any age or any stage. This way, you will hit your goal weight and lose the weight for life!
