The True Causes of Being Overweight

The True Causes of Being Overweight

Overeating and not exercising enough are usually thought to be the causes of being too heavy. In reality, the problem is much more complex. For most overweight people the main cause is NOT how much they eat but WHAT they eat and WHEN they eat it. Eating refined, devitalized non-foods cannot be used to build healthy tissues. As a result their bodies cannot perform normal functions. For example, this eating pattern leads to hormonal imbalances, blood sugar fluctuations, imbalances in brain chemistry and, of course, difficulty utilizing fat stores and a decrease in metabolic rate. People who are overweight are actually starving for proper nutrition.

For their bodies to function well, be healthy, be able to lose weight and maintain that weight loss they need to practice three principles:
• Eat whole food, plenty raw and organic. This helps people overcome their nutritional deficiencies and over time puts an end to the starvation.
• Exercise at least 30 minutes 6 days per week.
• Think positive.
