1 in 8 hospital admissions of women over 50 due to excess weight

A study of 1,000,000 women in the UK says excess weight responsible for 1 in 8 hospital stays for women over 50 years old

The figures come from the biggest health research project in the UK, which found that obesity-related diseases and ill-health in women were responsible for 2m days in hospital a year.

Your Worst Mistake After the HCG Diet

OK.  You found out where to buy HCG.

Then you bought it and worked your way through the HCG diet.  Maybe you did this yourself or with one of our doctor-supervised weight loss programs.

You’ve lost 20-30-40 pounds with some quick weight loss and now what?

Oh-oh…The HCG diet does not offer a long-term guarantee to stay slim. Indeed, you will completely undermine any successful weight loss by making one common mistake. It is the worst thing you can do.

And the mistake is: Eating Wheat

Yup. When you eat wheat or wheat products you give your body a double whammy of a dietary jolt that you don’t want. The first jolt, and the easiest to understand, comes from the complex carbohydrates that are the darlings of dietitians. The term “complex” just refers to a repeating chain of glucose molecules that comprise the starch in wheat.

The Problem with Wheat Starch

Conventional dietary wisdom advises us to increase our intake of complex carbohydrates such as wheat starch and to reduce our intake of table sugar (sucrose) or other such simple carbohydrates. (A molecule of sucrose contains only two simple sugars – one molecule of glucose and one molecule of fructose).

Here is the problem with wheat starch: It consists of a complex of glucose molecules, together called amylopectin A, that is far easier to digest than any other form of amylopectin. This just means that glucose hits your bloodstream faster when you consume wheat than when you consume other starchy foods such as bananas, beans, or potatoes.

In fact, whole wheat bread causes a greater spike in blood sugar (glucose) than sucrose itself. Eating a sandwich with two slices of whole wheat bread is no different, and often worse, than drinking a can of sugary soda or eating a sugary candy bar.

You probably (hopefully) already know that drinking sodas and eating sugary foods will add unwanted pounds of fat to your body after the hCG diet. Now you know that wheat-based foods will do the same. Indeed, these are the foods that, more than likely, got you into the position of having to do the hCG diet in the first place: breads, pastas, breakfast cereals, bagels, pastries, crackers, tortillas…and all manner of wheat-containing foods regardless of whether they are refined or whole-grain.

Oh, and here is one more kicker about wheat starch that makes it the worst food you can eat for weight-management: the surge in blood glucose (and insulin) from eating wheat causes a 2-hour roller coaster ride of satiety and hunger that continues throughout the day. Hunger hits a couple of hours after a breakfast of cereal and toast, which drives the consumption of lousy snack foods (more wheat!), which results in more hunger a couple of hours later, followed by more snacking, etc., etc. Bad news all around!

The bottom line is that daily consumption of too much wheat, in any form, repeatedly triggers high blood sugar, leading to the accumulation of storage fat. This is the worst mistake that you can make after the HCG diet.

Bad News About Wheat Gluten

Carbohydrates such as the amylopectin A in wheat are bad enough by themselves on weight management. However, the second jolt of the double whammy that you get from wheat comes from its gluten. Gluten is a normal storage protein, from the point of view of the wheat kernel, which has the added property of being sticky or elastic. Breads, bagels, pastas, pastries, and other processed wheat products are basically held together by the gluten they contain. If fact, bagels are famously chewy and dense because they have extra gluten added to them.

Without gluten, a modern jelly donut would be a crumbly mess that could not hold its filling. And pizza dough could never be tossed into the air and come back down intact.

The question of whether gluten causes weight gain, or whether eliminating dietary gluten helps weight loss, is almost moot because it is not a variable that is easily isolated from wheat starch. What we do know is that modern wheat gluten makes bad health worse. Its most debilitating effects probably stem from its ability to make your intestines permeable. Intestines are not supposed to be freely permeable.

The most commonly recognized disorders that can be triggered or made worse by permeable intestines (or ‘leaky gut syndrome’) are: Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Leaky gut syndrome is also at the root of systemic yeast infections, or candidiasis, in men and women.

Candidiasis has now become recognized to be so prevalent that millions of people suffer from a dizzying array of symptoms that are associated with it. Some of the symptoms that are linked to candidiasis include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Heartburn
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Mental fog
  • Allergies
  • Migraines
  • Acne
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease

Although this seems to be a long list of health problems, it is still incomplete. Indeed, many doctors are finally recognizing that a large number of chronic health problems that defy diagnosis and treatment are associated with candidiasis.

Why isn’t obesity on this list? In my opinion, it is only a matter of time before scientists provide firm links from gluten to all of the above inflammatory disorders and, ultimately, to obesity.

Real-Life Example – Weight Loss without HCG

Here’s a lady who lost 100lbs – not by HCG or other medicine, but just by doing the right thing.

Army wife Misty Shaffer lost 100lbs while her man was away on duty.

What a great surprise when he arrived back stateside!

Misty lost her 100lbs – but not by exercising.

She didn’t lose her weight by relying on HCG, green tea or any other kind of weight loss supplement either.

She lost her weight by eating smaller portions, drinking lots of water, and not eating three to four hours before bedtime.

She also avoided her biggest craving—potato chips.

Congratulations Misty.

Our WeightWorks weight loss program – designed by doctors for our Weight Loss Clinics – helps people just like Misty lose weight by doing much the same thing.

We are not exercise crazy.  Going to the gym is good but not the main way to lose weight.

Our doctors and specialists help each patient understand what caused their weight loss and how they can un-do the effects of that cause – with NORMAL BEHAVIORS.

No crazy diets.  Now wacky foods or shakes.  Just normal living… with weight loss as a result.

Oh yea.. for those who really struggle to get started, we let them use HCG since it does help kickstart things (p.s. you can buy HCG here if you want to do the HCG Diet on your own)

Weight loss is easier than you think once you know what caused it.

Find out today – signup for a weight loss consultation and get started with losing your weight – the right way.  Mention this blog and get 50% off the consult too.   :)

Weight Loss without HCG

In our last post, we talked about how using HCG alone for weight loss is not enough.

While that’s true, there are also a whole group of people for whom HCG is not even necessary.

That’s right – many people can lose their weight at home and all on their own, without using HCG or other weight loss supplements.

In fact, MOST PEOPLE can do this.   MOST PEOPLE don’t need a weight loss medicine.

You see, weight loss is very similar to weight gain.

Weight gain comes about because we do too many wrong things too often – eat too much, not exercise enough, etc etc.

Losing weight for most people is just a matter of doing the RIGHT THINGS.

The problem is, it is too hard for most of us to do the right things – avoid the bad habits – without caving in.

We need help, and the best help to have is the kind that gets us on track for doing the right things, and avoiding all of our bad habits.

That sounds easy, but it’s not.

So we make an entire library of targeted doctor coaching sessions available to patients at our weight loss clinics – we call these coaching sessions “Success Therapies”.

Read more about our Success Therapies here, or get started with the power of these sessions by signing up for the special deal we have going on – see the details below:

HCG Alone is not enough

Lots of people come to us wanting a quick solution.

Some of these people just want to buy HCG and do it on their own – no matter what.   IN those cases, we send them to our partner website www.realhcgforweightloss.com

For the others, we start with a doctor consultation to first figure out why they gained the weight in the first place – because if we can correct that, then we’ll solve the problem for good.

Everyone should want a quick weight loss solution… but more importantly, they should want a lasting weight loss solution that tackles THEIR PROBLEM head-on – not a quick fix.

Does that sound right to you?

Then get started with a no-obligation consultation today.  We’ll only ask for a $20 desposit and give that back if you are not 100% satisfied for any reason at all.  No questions asked.

Book your consultation by filling out our weight loss profile questionnaire = click here to do that.

Top Two Secrets of a Weight Loss Clinics Success

The new year is now into its second month and how is your weight?

Maybe you’ve decided not to make any new year’s resolutions about losing weight, figuring that anything you’ve tried last year or the year before didn’t work anyway…

But before you decide that weight loss is impossible for you, give me 5 minutes of your time to give you the top two secrets to weight loss -we have seen this work in 98% of the cases at our weight loss clinics.

First, Secret #2 – – LESS STRESS.

Too much stress in our lives upsets the hormone balance in our bodies  — building up higher-than-normal levels of Adrenaline and Cortisol — and making it nearly impossible to lose weight, no matter what we try.

Excess Adrenaline reduces our body’s fat burning ability, increases fluid retention and makes us hungry.  On top of that, too much Cortisol raises blood sugars, which then raises insulin levels and also makes us hungrier.  Worse yet, Cortisol makes our body favor burning protein for energy instead of fat.

The net result of this hormone imbalance is that we store more fat and gain weight — not lose weight!

But the bigger Secret #1 is what I call the “CONNECTED MIND”.

Here’s what we mean…

You already know that too much cake, ice cream, etc., brings on weight gain.

You also know that second helpings or too many calories in any form kills weight loss.

You know you shouldn’t “justify” or “reward” yourself with food.

Even though we know all of these things, we do them anyway — especially when times get tough.  It’s almost like our minds want us to fail, like we want to self-destruct our weight loss program.

Why?

These types of failures — whether from bad habits, family tradition or personal choice — are often a result of behaviors ingrained in our subconscious, making it hard to act against them.

This “disconnect” between our subconscious ways of thinking (old patterns & habits) and our conscious thoughts (I want to lose weight) is the #1 reason for failure of any weight loss program.

If you look back at your past weight loss failures, then you will agree that you already know this.

Therefore the biggest secret to most weight loss success – even at any weight loss clinic – is what we call the “connected mind”.

Aligning your subconscious / habits / patterns with the weight loss goals of your conscious mind is not nearly so difficult as it sounds.  Even severe cases of “disconnect” can be helped with simple coaching that can be completed at home.

Our experience in our weight loss clinics is that achieving your weight loss potential with Secret #1 is achievable by pretty much anyone who really does want to lose weight.

Still think you need to avoid a new year’s weight loss resolution?  We think setting a goal to lose 20lb by spring is realistic and achievable.

Don’t think so? Then please call us so we can talk.  1-800-552-2533

TOO MUCH STRESS

This is the only one of my 7 insights that was also included on the list of reasons (excuses) for excess weight given by those we meet.

As we mentioned last time, excess stress is actually worse than eating chocolate when it comes to weight gain.

Excess stress messes with our hormones (just like too little sleep), but it also exaggerates our eating and inability to correctly process those foods. Bad news, indeed.

Reason #3 for 95% Weight Loss Failure

NOT ENOUGH SLEEP

Most of us get 5-6 hours of sleep per night. We may stay up late with the TV or get up early for work, but in either case, we’re getting less than the 7-8 hours our bodies need.

When we sleep too little, our bodies don’t have the chance to recover and set our hormones back in balance.

Too little sleep leaves us more lethargic with a slower metabolism, plus the out-of-balance hormones leave us hungrier too.

Reason #4 for 95% Weight Loss Failure

TOO MUCH SUGAR

As Americans, we consume more sugary soda drinks than any other country in the world.

A super-size fountain drink tastes so good going down, but it brings in as many calories as an entire meal! Not only that, but sugars are easier to store as fat than protein or other foods.

Try drinking diet soda to avoid the extra sugars, or even better, switch to non-fizzy drinks – unsweetened green tea and water are especially good for weight management!
