Excess weight and obesity are an epidemic in most industrialized nations. The United States leads the world in the highest percentage of obese individuals. Our culture embraces the causes of obesity while attacking other forms of self-destruction such as smoking and drug abuse. The fact is, however, obesity-related health problems kill more people each year than all other forms of self-abuse combined!
Countless chronic degenerative diseases are either directly linked to excess weight or are compromised and worsened by obesity. Heart disease, type II diabetes, gallbladder disorders, digestive problems, and many forms of cancer are directly linked to obesity.
With obesity on the rise it may be comforting for you to know that with the help of The Institute of Nutritional Science, Be Young Total Health has an amazing weight management program that has been proven to work and is free of all types of scary weight loss pills and drinks! Our weight management program is effective due to its unique ability to focus on each person as an individual and realize that one weight loss program for everyone is absurd.
While the conventional wisdom for the past many decades being that excess weight gain is caused by the consumption of excess calories beyond what the body is able to utilize for energy and bodily function may be true for many, it is completely untrue for the majority of those suffering from moderate to severe obesity. So what is the cause of excess body weight? Obesity is the result of many different potential problems within the body. These problems can be due to a person’s metabolism, their glandular function, excess stress, candida or yeast overgrowth and many other factors. Although there are numerous reasons why an individual may carry excess weight or fail at a weight management program, we will focus on the number one reason why people fail at their weight management goals: they are following the wrong program for them! Now you may ask, “How do I know what the right program is for me?” This can be found by determining your metabolic type.
Science has identified many different metabolic factors that can influence how your body might handle food and the food choices you make. The vast majority of us, however, fall into one of three categories. Each of these categories can produce weight gain, but they must be addressed in distinctly different ways in order to achieve weight loss and ongoing stability.
To help determine an individual’s metabolic type, a series of questions based on symptoms, reactions, and specific physical conditions are asked of each person. This evaluation has been incredibly accurate in determining what type of weight management program will likely produce the best results in the shortest amount of time.
The first metabolic type we see is what we refer to as the calorie sensitive person. These people tend to gain weight mostly around the mid-section due to the consumption of excess calories. These individuals are the classic “eat too much” people and will respond best to a program that controls calorie intake.
The second metabolic type, and the one responsible for the majority of obesity, is called carbohydrate intolerance. These people gain excess weight all over their bodies and can seem to gain an unlimited amount of body weight. They respond to excess carbohydrate ingestion by over-producing a hormone from the pancreas called insulin.
The last major metabolic type is a combination of the previous two factors. These individuals are affected by both calorie and carbohydrate excesses. For these people, we design a program that effectively addresses both calories and carbohydrates at the same time.
All of the weight management programs offered through Be Young contain three phases. Phase One is quite strict, but you will follow it for only a short period of time. This phase is designed to change your body chemistry and improve metabolism. Phase Two is the ongoing weight loss phase and it is the program you will follow for a significant amount of time until your weight management goals have been reached. Phase Three will be the maintenance phase and has been designed to help you maintain your weight loss while you enjoy the foods you like.
Another phase of our programs that set them aside from all others is that we encourage cheating. In fact, we insist on it! Everyone cheats while on a weight loss program. This is human nature. Since we know that you will cheat, we want you to do it the right way.
After you have entered Phase Two of our program, we want you to choose your favorite day of the week and enjoy a favorite meal on that day. However, once you have chosen, the favorite meal must remain on that same day and meal every week. Within that meal, you may eat anything you wish, that’s right ANYTHING and in any amount you wish! The only catch is that you have only two hours to indulge.
Cheating in this manner accomplishes two important things. First, you will know that you are never more than six days away from enjoying any favorite food in any amount. Second, when you bombard the body with high amount of carbohydrates all at once, the chemistry cannot change fast enough to cause major metabolic problems. The offending foods are out of the system before the body knows what happened.
Everyone can manage his or her weight! If you have been frustrated in the past and have a history of failures and setbacks, realize that there is almost certainly a sound reason for your lack of success. Our weight management program is designed to solve these problems while teaching you key lifestyle changes. Our program will put you in control of your weight management life once again!
