Nutrition and lifestyle play crucial roles in the related conditions of pre-diabetes, diabetes, insulin resistance and cancer. A calorie rich diet, a nutrient deficient diet and overuse of medication affect the biochemistry, cell biology and genetics of your metabolism. This can lead to obesity and major health challenges!
Supporting your health through nutrition, effective metabolism, supplement intervention and lifestyle changes is the key to your present and future health! So many people have come to us over the years and we have realized a lot of people making the same dieting mistakes over and over again.
Dieting Mistake #1: Limiting Calorie Intake
This oversimplified equation is problematic because it does not account for biochemical reactions taking place in the body.This can be extremely taxing on your body because most people are nutritionally depleted and over stressed before they even get started! When you cut back on calories, you push your natural biological defenses to their limits and cause biological mechanisms to misfire – signaling the gateways to inflammation, cellular and systematic homeostasis which can lead to higher chances of health risks and uncontrollable weight changes.
Instead of reducing calorie consumption, the best action you can take is to address the underlying causes by nourishing your body with calories from healthy foods that you tolerate! This will also inhibit potential disease and the weight will fall off the scale much quicker.
Dieting Mistake #2: Not Analyzing Blood Tests
You should never start a weight loss plan without first checking your levels of HA1c and C-reactive protein (CRP) through a routine blood test. These two blood markers represent your body’s level of inflammation and oxidative stress.
A1c measures the percentage of hemoglobin that is glycosylated by blood sugar. Glycosylation is the process of glucose (blood sugar) attaching to proteins, which then changes their structure and damages their function. High levels of HA1c increase your chances for diabetes.
C-reactive protein (CRP) also indicates an increase of inflammation in the body which can lead to an increased likelihood of heart disease. If your levels of one or both markers are high, you sure want to address it first before starting any weight loss program.
Taking the right measurements to lower these two markers with nutrition and food supplements will support your goal to gain health and lose weight!
Dieting Mistake #3: Going to the Gym
This theory is based on the assumption that change in body weight is equal to energy intake minus energy expenditure, and is often used to show how the reduction of caloric intake and/or increase in physical activity will result in successful weight loss that can be maintained over the long run.
Unfortunately, science and reality show otherwise. More people are gaining back their weight, no meaningful long term results, and in the long run, the “yo-yo” diet affects their health with a chronic disease like diabetes, cancer, etc.
This model simply doesn’t take into consideration the fact that energy input and expenditure are interdependent and regulated at several biochemical levels based on nutrition.
Instead of increasing physical activity alone, use Chen Ben-Asher’s energy-balanced model for weight management. This will keep your body operating under homeostatic balance instead of depriving yourself of necessary nutrients.Click HERE now to get balanced weight by a board certified functional nutritionist
