Happy New Years! Did you make any resolutions this year?
I find it interesting that fitness and weight loss rank second and third right behind spending more time with family. It tops the list however on broken resolutions (with eating healthier as the #5 most broken resolution)
So, what happens in the month of January that takes people from being all fired up about their goals and resolutions breaking them?
One possibility is that the foods themselves (“healthy” or not) are interfering with, and PREVENTING weight loss and motivation to exercise. This is a phenomenon called food intolerance. Food intolerance causes swelling, inflammation, fatigue, cravings as well as a variety of other symptoms one might not necessarily trace back to being food related, like skin disorders, headaches, aches and pains, foggy mindedness, depression, and general malaise. Removing the offending foods can created a quick and surprisingly effective method of reversing unpleasant associated symptoms–which often baffle doctors. (Why every doctor does not run this test as part of an annual physical, I do not know.
The information I gained from getting tested myself has been invaluable. I no longer eat onions, apples, eggs or turkey –and I feel 100 times better than I did before I knew that those specific food were NOT healthy choices for ME! My energy increased dramatically within just a few days, and the bonus was that I lost 8 lbs in the first 3 weeks without even trying.
The results I see in clients is often just as impressive if not more so. I have seen people lose 10lbs in a week, horrible skin conditions (that they had had for years) disappear in three. It is the norm, not the exception, for weight to drop and energy to go up as a result of making some “this not that” tweaks to diet using the information obtained with the Food Intolerance test. It is my TOP recommended test, especially those struggling with low/inconsistent energy and inflammatory conditions.
It is an easy way to to stay on track…making specific, easy, doable, changes that give good, and sometimes even miraculous results.
Sometimes it is the little changes we make that has the biggest impact on overall health. It doesn’t have to be hard.
