Obesity is becoming a wide and scary epidemic. Being overweight used to be a status symbol of the royalty being able to live high on the fat of the land. Now a days, being overweight has no social status and is effecting people all over.
Let’s talk about the Health risks that go along with Obesity. Diabetes is on the rise. With most foods being chemically processed, white flour, white sugar, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oil, it’s a miracle we’re still alive. Our body’s are being de mineralized and malnutrition. We are starving ourselves from real food while gaining weight by the pounds. Our blood sugar is skyrocketing and out of control. We are not feeding our bodies real food to keep it healthy. Body’s are shutting down and the pancreas has quit working on it’s own. There are so many people walking around without even knowing that they are Pre Diabetic or Diabetic. Their health is a walking time bomb and they aren’t even aware of it.
Heart disease is another real concern on the rise. It used to be older people were the ones dropping off dead from Heart attacks. Not any more! Men and women in their early twenty’s are starting to drop off dead from heart attacks. Can it be their bodies are not getting the nutrition it needs? The sales of Energy Drinks are amazing and scary! Our hearts were not meant for that much stimulation. Cancer is another major risk with being obese. It’s plain and simple! We are starving our bodies into being morbidly obese. Our body’s cannot keep up with the demand of staying healthy without getting some proper nutrition to take care of it’s self. Our body’s natural immune system is failing us. We are facing new diseases and silent killers in the new 21st century.
One thing is we need to realize that there is no such thing as a quick weight loss. To much rapid weight loss can cause bad side effects and trick your body into starvation mode and cause you to gain all your weight back that you originally lost, plus a few extra pounds. Reducing calories too low can cause Blood sugar drops that could cause Hypoglycemia. That’s another health concern.
Natural weight loss is the best for your body. Slow and steady. Eating natural food to properly nourish the body is the best way. Eating foods with lots of fiber help the body to fill you up and to help with elimination. Eating a diet with lots of fruits and vegetables help with nourishment for the body. It provides you with all your daily vitamins and minerals. Whole grains, steel cut oats, brown rice, whole wheat pasta and whole grain breads are also good choices for natural food to eat. Avoid staying away from processed foods. No white flour, no white sugar, no white potatoes. Try to make these foods for special occasions only. Protein is also a must in losing weight the natural way. Try sticking to lean meats, such as chicken breast, turkey, extra lean beef, low fat cheese, and eggs. Low fat dairy is also high in protein and calcium which is good for the bones.
Drinking lots of water, at least 64 oz keeps the body’s natural functions regulating. Green tea is very effective in giving the body a little extra caffeine and helping boost up the immune system. Green tea is also know naturally for it’s health benefits of lowering cholesterol and lowering blood pressure, just to name a few. Also when you drink lots of fluids, you flush out old toxins in the body and expel a lot of water weight. Some overweight people hold a lot of water retention in their hands and feet causing edema which can be a health hazard on it’s own. So drink a lot of water and organic green tea and keep the body flushing out the toxins.
When trying to lose weight the natural way, you may wish to take a supplement to help keep the munchies under control. There are a lot of good herbs available that could help with weight loss naturally. Gymnema Sylvestre is one herb touted for maintaining blood sugar levels and making sugary foods taste bland. Kelp is also a great source for nourishing the thyroid naturally. It’s also a great source of Iodine which helps the skin and hair and nails, and aids in natural weight loss. Chickweed and Fennel are good herbs known for naturally flushing out toxins in the body. It gently helps flush the fat out and hydrates the skin.
