NEW THOUGHTS ABOUT OBESITY

We usually think about obesity in terms of calories and exercise, but not every person who makes lifestyle changes are able to lose weight no matter what they do.

The latest thinking is that obesity is related to inflammation in the body as well as micronutrient deficiencies.

Many researchers are connecting the dots when it comes to MICROBIOME (bacteria in the gut) with inflammation and insulin resistance which can lead to increased bidy fat and weight. There are studies that are looking at the role of both prebiotics and probiotics in weight reduction.(there is also an association of heart disease and depression with abnormal bacteria in the intestines)

Also, deficiencies in Vitamin C, Zinc, Iron, Magnesium, CoQ10 and Calcium have been linked to weight gain.

So, yes, diet and exercise and even sometimes prescription medications can help you lose weight but when that doesn’t help, INFLAMMATION should be considered and treated
