Being overweight is more than just a dampener to our self-esteem and energy, it is a risk factor for a myriad of chronic diseases.
Storage of excess body fat can be a result of more than simply how many calories you take in. The balance of intestinal flora can influence how much energy is extracted from our food, and our hormone systems (eg. stress, thyroid, insulin) dictate to our body whether it should store energy or burn it. These factors in turn are influenced by the myriad of factors in our lives from the food we eat, the chemicals we are exposed to, the stress perceived by our bodies, the quality of sleep, physical activity, and periods of fasting. Our psychology is also a big factor in determining our food choices, with eating for reward, emotional eating, social eating, habitual eating all contributing to our dietary intake. Hunger and desire to eat are also influenced both by hunger and satiety signals, which are influenced by what you eat, and may be re-calibrated with time. Establishing new habits and re-balancing our metabolism and microbiome to achieve and sustain your desired body-weight for the long term is naturally not a quick fix crash-diet, but rather a process where we intervene at multiple levels to re-calibrate your biology and your dietary and lifestyle habits.
