You Get Healthy to Lose Weight
“Dr. Don, I just want to let you know how much I appreciate the posts and videos. You have an excellent way of boiling down the mechanisms it took me a lot of reading to understand. I hope it’s ok for me to share with my patients?
BTW I’m an extremely active 43 year old who eats very well and I’ve maintained the same body weight for the last 25 years or so but by making the small changes from your program to get insulin friendly I’m down over 20 lbs and still losing without changing anything else. I wasn’t even trying to lose weight!. Thank you!” Dr. J
You don’t lose weight to get healthy.
You get healthy to lose weight.
The body doesn’t carry “extra body weight” around and especially doesn’t resist healthy efforts to shed it. At least not for no reason that is.
Our bodies will hold onto extra weight do to:
High toxicity load (cellular, systemic, neurotoxic, excitotoxic, heavy metals, estrogen metabolites, etc)
Organ/visceral fat: Liver, pancreas, muscle, etc)
Environmental Estrogens (Xenoestrogens)
Gut problem (leaky gut, irritable bowel, dysbiosis, auto-immune)
Usually, in the work I do with people, I only have to address a few of these issues after about 3-4 months on my program.
Most get a lot better or resolve through lifestyle modifications. If they don’t, then we know there is more to do, like testing or specific protocols.
But not until they have some time and experience incorporating the strategies in the Insulin Friendly Living program.
The body is a DEMAND driven system, not a SUPPLY driven system.
Meaning it’s not what you take but what you make that gets and keeps you healthy.
No medication, supplement, product, or superfood will do it for you, but they can help support you.
Focus on health and getting healthy, and when the body is ready, it will address the “extra body weight” after it has saved your life from the deadly fat.
Make a plan, stick with the program, get some help, and never give up!
You will passively lose your health if you are not actively improving it!
We can do better!
