Most Important Supplements to Correct Weight Loss Deficiencies
This post is the first of three that deals with supplying the body with sufficient nutrition in order to prevent the brain from triggering a starvation response – signaling fat storage rather than burning fat. The body will not be thrown into this state, even on a low caloric intake, when key elements are not missing. The combined collection of information is geared to keep the weight off that was lost and how to correctly go about successful weight loss.
Visualize a search taking place within your body. The cells in the body are desperately seeking essential nutrients in order to perform functionally and rebuild. Do you imagine the long list of required elements and nutrients mysteriously appears from the air you breathe or the water you drink? Now do a mental note of what you eat in a day. And how often is your diet the same old, same old. The appetite center in the brain is only triggered by the need for more energy and something that is still missing for the body to perform and provide the desired energy. Think nutritional value when putting something in your mouth. Is there any? If its white, the answer is no. Consider as well what you are taking into your body from the food that will not serve you optimally such as chemicals, preservatives, harmful dyes, fungicides, pesticides, nitrates and nitrites. For many, conquering weight loss will be one of life’s greatest achievements.
If the body thinks it has been starved it will slow down your metabolism via the thyroid gland to burn less fat and when normal eating patterns return it will continue to store fat until most or all the fat has been put back. Unfortunately this is a very common scenario when an extremely low caloric intake has suddenly occurred as seen with some diet programs. Or you go all day without eating until dinner time. This is nothing short of sabotage. You work so hard and only to see it come back so quickly even though you are now eating far less than before.
The following will include a few suggestions to not only pick up the missing elements in your diet but to also pick up the integrity of the body as a whole and boost your resting metabolic rate – to start burning fat instead of storing it.
Raw vegetable, greens and fruit juice
Key benefits consist of antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, easy digestibility, curbs appetite, alkaline solution, decreases acidity, cleans the lymph system – in fact, a regular protocol of these fluids especially veggie and green juice, will cleanse a body on a cellular level. You will also avoid the extra cost of buying these supplements.
Essential Fatty Acids Cannot be Overstated
Scientists and researchers have stated that their findings show to the extent that all disease is related to a lack of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Refer to the post or our website on Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) for the many indisputable reasons to incorporate sufficient quantities of fish oil and seed oil such as flax oil. Without adequate fats of this nature, we cannot remain healthy and balanced. Cholesterol will imbalance and the glands and organs require these fats for optimum function and for the production of hormones. For this reason it has been said, we are as young or as old as our glands; they produce our hormones. When hormones decline, we age and in many instances well before our time. Fish oil is paramount in protecting your brain mass thereby improving your memory and preventing dementia.
Zinc and Magnesium
Zinc and Magnesium perform many more processes and duties than any other vitamin or mineral: These two minerals are included in individual posts, providing great information as to why you should pay attention to these two elements. Their application is enormous in the body and the lack of either; or the inability of these minerals to travel adequately throughout the body via amino acids, will greatly impact healing processes and your future well being.
Necessary for the thyroid to make thyroid hormone. Review post on the thyroid and adrenal glands. If you have hyperthyroidism or thyroiditis, avoid iodine at this time until balance is restored. However, the thyroid gland requires a tiny amount of iodine daily in order for the thyroid gland to make thyroid hormone. The thyroid gland controls the resting metabolic rate which means, if the thyroid gland is low functioning, you are burning fat very slowly.
L-tyrosine is an amino acid utilized by the thyroid gland but is directly related to producing Dopamine. Enhance your moods and boost thyroid function at the same time.
Caution: For Hyperthyroid, avoid all thyroid stimulants like iodine until the condition is corrected.
B Vitamins – whole food source
Nutritional Flaked Yeast and Tortula are complete B vitamin sources and a complete protein source. These items are generally sold in an inexpensive bulk form. Stress surrounds any weight loss program let alone the day to day demands. B vitamins are critical for adrenal glands especially B5 and are in great demand by the brain and nervous system. If stress is a problem pay attention to B vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, iodine source and magnesium. Because this product is a whole food source, you will absorb far more than from a B supplement pill form. Take 2 tablespoons a day for stress and building up and 2 teaspoons a day for maintenance. Mixes easily in liquid.
This friendly bacteria is a large component of the immune system and recently shown to by used by the thyroid gland – 20% of thyroid gland functioning depends on Probiotics. This form of bacterium is found in the stomach, small intestines, and the large colon to control yeast, fungus, h-pylori, and e-coli throughout the body.
