Weight Loss

mrsavljenje, Weight Loss

Weight loss is an eternal topic.

However, the two most important things related to weight loss are:

  1. How to lose weight healthily
  2. How not to regain weight

One thing connects the other, which means that if you lose weight healthily, you won’t regain it.

There’s also the question of motivation, subconsciousness, and self-sabotage.

Let’s go step by step.

Healthy weight loss involves shedding kilograms and eliminating unhealthy fats from the body.

It’s not just a matter of your body weight (mass), but also a matter of the composition of your body mass.

It’s good to know your body composition, the percentage of body fat, water, muscle mass, mineral mass, and most importantly, the percentage of visceral fat – the fat that accumulates around organs, primarily the intestines.

Visceral fat is dangerous for health.
In this type, there is a high risk of cardiovascular diseases, as fat is more easily transported and appears faster in the blood.

When determining body composition, a doctor must take into account the distribution of water (even a full bladder can alter the result) to ensure accuracy.

Zašto je ovo važno?
It’s important so that you can be sure you’re losing fat and not muscle tissue.
Losing muscle is not an option. Therefore, the weight loss we see on the scale is not accurate and doesn’t tell us whether we are losing weight healthily or rapidly and unhealthily.

Visceral fat forms in the majority of people due to excessive sugar consumption. Of course, high daily calorie intake without expenditure exacerbates the situation.
This often happens because we eat nutritionally empty foods and remain hungry, so we eat again and thus enter a vicious cycle. We eat constantly and are always hungry.
This leads to biochemical confusion that becomes a daily routine over time.

As long as we keep eating something (even small amounts of food), insulin is constantly secreted.
As long as insulin is active, glucagon cannot be active; glucagon is secreted only 5-6 hours after insulin’s action.
And glucagon is the hormone that promotes fat breakdown.

Therefore, it’s important to eat nutritionally rich foods, which are only fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit.
For those of you who think you eat healthily and constantly snack on nuts, especially in sweet combinations (dried fruit, honey…), you are working against your health and can’t lose weight.

Can you eat only these four types of foods (meat, fish, fruit, vegetables) during the day, without additives?
I don’t know, answer that for yourself.

Constant snacking keeps insulin permanently elevated.

Permanently elevated insulin causes the following changes:

  • Increase in triglycerides and fats
  • Increase in triglycerides and fats
  • Increase in stress hormone activity (cortisol)
  • Accumulation of fatty tissue
  • Blood clotting, which can lead to stroke or myocardial infarction
  • Decreased melatonin and sleep disturbances
  • Decreased growth hormone and faster aging
  • Decreased levels of DHEA hormone from which male and female sex hormones are derived – this is why you might experience all hormone imbalances, including decreased libido

I ask you, is this life?

What to do?

There are several diets that are intelligent, high-quality, and expertly designed, but they are diets; they are not individual therapy plans.
Obesity is a disease and it needs treatment.

You cannot cure it without a plan, random experimentation with foods, combinations, rituals, and preparations.
You’ll get lost, you’ll get tired, you’ll give up.

Why does obesity occur?
I have already written an article about obesity, read about the causes of obesity. Read HERE.
That’s just a part.

Everyone has their own cause.
You need to discover it.
And you need to know what to do with those discoveries.

In most people, obesity occurs due to excessive sugar consumption. One of the reasons is nutritionally empty food that causes hunger, which we then compensate for with sweets (seeking energy).

Numerous studies have already been published that prove that body fat doesn’t increase due to excessive fat intake but due to excessive sugar intake.

But how can we reduce sugar intake, stop being addicted?

It needs to be treated biochemically.

That’s why I recommend Metabolic Balance Weight Loss.

What’s it about?

The first step is to visit a doctor who does Metabolic Balance and do specific laboratory tests.
The results of the medical examination and laboratory data are sent to Germany to the Metabolic Balance company, where an individual dietary plan is created.
Your doctor will provide you with the plan along with all explanations and will guide you through follow-up appointments.

The Metabolic Balance individual dietary plan consists of 4 stages:

– Preparation phase that lasts 2 days
– Strict phase that lasts 2 weeks – it’s important to just follow the rules; there’s enough food
– Loose phase where the list of foods expands and gourmet meals are added
– Maintenance phase – a new dietary way that you enjoy, and if needed, you continue to lose weight

All you need to do is define your goal. How much weight do you want? At what weight do you feel best?
The doctor ensures you lose weight healthily and achieve your goal.

In addition, there’s psychological support. Read more about it HERE

Do you also have excess weight?
What are your results?

If you’re within these limits, then it’s okay:
– Waist circumference (around the navel) for women up to 80 cm and for men up to 94 cm
– Serum triglycerides up to 1.7 mmol/L
– Blood pressure up to 130/85 mmHg
– Blood glucose up to 6.4 mmol/L (these are already high values, but within normal laboratory limits)
– HDL cholesterol above 1.0 mmol/L (for men) and above 1.2 mmol/L (for women)

Otherwise, you are a candidate for a stroke or heart attack, and men for impotence.
These are undeniable facts confirmed every day.

Don’t be yet another confirmation, but heal. Weight loss is a fundamental part of healing.

I know, you have a lot of obligations, you live in stress, you’re in middle age when everyone expects something from you (children, partners, family, bosses, friends), and trying to please everyone leaves you no time for yourself.

The most important thing is the first step, which is clarity.
All the facts about the circumstances of your life, your personality, your desires, your health, need to be clearly presented to you. Only then will you have information from which you can make a decision.
When you have clarity, then you can follow the decision you made. Otherwise, no.

First, find out where you are.
Then decide where you’re going. And with whom.

If it’s about weight loss, then:

  • Find out all important information about your blood pressure, weight, percentage of muscle mass, percentage of body fat, triglyceride values, individual risks…
  • Find out what has prevented you from losing weight so far, who is sabotaging you in your subconscious
  • Decide who will guide you through the weight loss process
  • Choose people to surround you who will support you to achieve your goal

Choose holistic weight loss with the Metabolic Balance individual dietary plan and psychological support according to the Mulier method.

Lose weight without side effects like loose skin, withdrawal crises, returning to old habits and losing self-confidence, wasting time and money.

Treat yourself to the fulfillment of the desire to be able to buy the clothes you want.
