Secret to a Healthy Weight Loss

weight-lossA lot of people come to Balanced Wellness because they want to lose weight.

What most people do is cut back on what they eat and increase exercise however this doesn’t always give the desired results. If you are reducing your food intake and going hungry the blood sugar spikes. And then we start to crave food.This makes it harder to go without food making us hungry and crave carbs and sugar. We cave and then end up eating rubbish.

Exercise can be a problem if you have a very stressed Endocrine system. For example running, if the body is already stressed then it will go into crisis mode and will start storing fat. Hormones will start to be produced which can’t be filtered out so the body starts storing these hormones, such as cortisol, in fat cells therefore, people who diet and then force themselves to take part in activities (like running) normally end up putting on more weight!

So what is the secret to weight loss?

You need to make sure that you are ridding the body of toxins as well as ridding the body of fat. If you only focus on trying to get rid of the fat then you usually become unwell as the fat breaks down and toxins are released into the body. This usually ends up in people feeling grotty and getting lots of unwanted colds.

What do you need to do to be a healthy weight?

Get rid of the toxins and get rid of the fat together. The healthiest way to do this is to do a really good detox. There is a number of ways you can do this. You can clean up your diet and make sure that you are not eating any processed food, drinking of plenty of water and increasing organic fruit and vegetable intake.

We offer a very unique cleansing programme called RejuvaDetox at our Chichester centre. This is a deep and powerful cellular detox using an electronic lymphatic machine which cleanses the whole body including the digestion, the liver and the kidneys.

RejuvaDetox cleans out all the unwanted intestinal plaque and toxins in your body, bit like descaling limescale! Whilst on the machine there is an opportunity to discuss emotional difficulties and receive support to work through them and reduce stress in the body.

If you can clean out the toxins, break down the fat, as well as managing stress levels then the weight will stay off!

Vitamin D – The Sunshine Vitamin

SunshineHaving left London when I was 5 years old, I grew up in rural Suffolk, a child of the 70s with the heat wave in 1976 being the hottest summer on record.  TV was limited to Play School after school and Swap Shop on a Saturday morning, which allowed my parents to have a lie in.

My brother, sister and I would spend most of our free time exploring and playing in the great outdoors that was our adventure playground.  Our nearest friends were a cycle ride away, the nearest shop, a farmyard tuck shop, was a 15 minute walk across the fields.  Visits to friend’s birthday parties were a rarity.

We made dens with sun loungers, climbed trees, played badminton of sorts over a make shift net made of garden string, painted pictures outdoors, ran amuck amongst the bales of hay in neighboring fields, and squealed with delight as our gorgeous English Pointer of a dog would tow my younger brother, sister and I across the lawn on his blanket, gripping it between his teeth until his gums bled, such was his devotion to us.
