It seems as if in North America 90% of the population is either on a diet or considering some new fangled solution to shed those extra pounds. Is it more exercise and less calories as we have been told for years. It is less carbohydrates and more protein. Regardless of the strategy you are using according to my Yuri Elkaim the author of a new book entitled “The All-Day Fat-Burning Diet” we need to reset our bodies metabolism.
Yes, we have heard this advice before as well, but not in conjunction with what Yuri refers to as a 5 day food cycling formula which includes one day of fasting. In Yuri’s book he discusses what he refers to as “Fat Triggers”.
Fat Trigger #1: Allergenic Foods that Cause Inflammation. What are they usually they are dairy and gluten, Yuri say that everyone that eliminates these foods from their diet will see a change in their waistline.
Fat Trigger#2: A Sedentary Lifestyle and Exercise Extremism. Keep your body moving, but not too much. In other words exercise is very important for your overall bodies health, but excessive exercise is unnecessary and can have adverse effects.
Fat Trigger #3 Toxins. Toxins have an inverse relationship with thyroid hormone function, so as levels of toxins in the body go up, levels of biologically active thyroid hormone, T3, go down.
Fat Trigger #4: Deadly Belly Bugs. Your gut health is the biggest determining factor of your overall health. Microorganisms communicate with your immune system to help keep you healthy. Dysbiosis, is the imbalance of good to bad bacteria–this is a big problem in today’s excessively celan, sugar-laden and antibiotic happy world.
Fat Trigger #5: Sugar Overload. Sugar makes you fat because it’s quickly broken down and its glucose component spikes your blood sugar. As a result, insulin is released to remove all the excess sugar from the blood, and it’s stored in your muscles, liver, and fat cells.
Fat Trigger #6: Too Much “Frankenfood” Much of our ultimate behavior has to do with dopamine centers in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter intimately involved with rewards which leads us to choose the wrong foods that are high in fat and calories but with little nutritional value.
