Why is it so important to understand the cause of obesity?
Quite simply, if you don’t address the cause, losing weight will be a complete struggle.
In fact, most people fail in their weight loss journey simply because they do not understand why they are overweight. If you don’t know what’s wrong how can you fix it? If you don’t fully understand the reason you are overweight you can patch something here and patch something there, but you will never fully get the results you want. Amazingly enough, this is what the vast majority of weight loss programs do…They try to change a few things without ever addressing the things that are actually causing you to retain body fat.
So what’s the cause of obesity?
It’s your metabolism! Metabolism is the bodily process of converting food into energy. If your body can’t efficiently convert the food you consume into energy you will retain body fat. This is why the main objective of any healthy weight loss plan should be to create an efficient metabolism. To speed it up so that your body will burn the fat! Most weight loss fads promote diet pills, surgery and other harmful weight loss methods. They do not address the cause of an inefficient metabolism, which is why the results they produce do not last.
There are four primary things that cause an inefficient metabolism and therefore should be included in your healthy weight loss plan. Address these four things and you will see weight loss results faster than you ever dreamed possible!
How much water do you drinkIf you are dehydrated you will struggle to lose weight. Hydration is the single greatest factor for producing an lightning fast metabolism. You should be drinking no less than eight-8 ounce glasses of pure water a day. The optimal amount is over 10!
Your eating habits can transform your figureYour body was meant to graze! You were not designed to eat “three square” meals a day! You should be eating six small meals each and every day. Eating like this is optimal for a fast metabolism.
Diet is everythingWithout the optimal diet you will never reach your potential. Ironically enough, most “fad diets” fail the diet test! It is absolutely undeniable that consuming processed food will make you fat. If you want to slim down super fast you need be consuming an organic plant-based diet. This does not mean that you have to be a vegetarian. But you do need to limit your animal protein intake.
Exercise is necessaryYou do not have to kill yourself, but you do need to be active. You should be doing some form of exercise each and every day. Go for long walks; take bike rides; lift weights; run…The possibilities are endless. Exercise provides the stimulation your body needs to burn fat and build muscle and it’s essential for a lean, fit figure!
