For years you have been told that it is extremely vital that you reduce your weight. There are infinite campaigns aimed at addressing the issue of obesity.

There are reports and blog posts that name obesity as the underlying cause of health issues for conditions and diseases, such as Type 2 Diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancer, hypertension, and a number of other illnesses. This traditional approach to obesity is fallacious.

Obesity is not the cause of bad health; it is a direct result of it. An unhealthy liver has the capacity to impact the body’s inability to burn fat and lose weight in several ways. One example is the famous “pot belly”. The “pot belly”, unlike other mid-section obtrusions, is more elevated and harder than normal. This is because this particular condition is caused by a liver that is leaking fluid into the sac around the abdominal area.

The liver has the capacity to totally heal itself, in most instances, it can take up to 3 years to fully heal; creating a number challenges to losing weight. 

Another important element involved in dealing with effective weight loss is managing stress. There are natural ways to deal with sustained stress, such as acupuncture. Stress plays a major role in the body’s ability or inability to manage its weight.

It is important to understand the physiological distinctions that each person possesses, meaning that each person will respond to certain physical stimuli, such as exercise differently than others.

This is why individual exercise and nutritional plans should be designed for each person. One size fits all does not work in the arena of health.


For a more detailed explanation of the topic of health and weight loss, you can read the book: The 7 Principles of Fat Burning.
