Inflammatory Foods make me put on weight! Madonna Guy ND

Thursday, October 26th, 2017
I have a confession to make. I’ve weighed myself every morning for at least 15 years, probably 20 or more, and I have at least 8 years of that on a spreadsheet, so I exactly what happens when I eat certain foods, or drink certain things.  I know that if I drink beer, eat nachos, bread, pasta, pizza – I’ll put on a kilo or two over night and it’ll take days to get rid of if I’m really really good!
Clients are often surprised when they start the weight loss journey how quickly they put on weight if they go to a party, eat out a few nights a week, have friends over several nights in a row… I suppose I’m never surprised.  People are equally surprised and think it’s not normal if the weight goes up a kilo or two with an average western diet…
There are many inflammatory foods these days – which increase your body’s need to store FLUID, which means you gain much more weight than the ‘weight’ of the food.  In other words, that sandwich might only weigh 200g but you might gain a kilo of fluid as well, if grains are inflammatory for you…
Then most inflammatory foods are:
Grains:  glutens, rice (for many people), GMO soy, wheat
Alcohol:  all.  The least inflammatory drink is vodka, soda and lime..  Make it your mantra!!
Sugar:  every 10-13 tsp sugar (1 bottle coke) reduces your immune system by 10%.  10%!!!!!  That’s massive!
GMO Foods/Animal Products:  nearly always require more pesticides, more antibiotics, more vaccines
Non-Purified Water:  chlorine and fluoride slow down your metabolism and can add to thyroid issues
Dairy:  for many people dairy is inflammatory, especially with grains!  (cereal and milk; pizza; cheese on burgers…)   On it’s own often people can handle it.  Organic dairy is often fine as there are less lectins, less hormones, less pesticides (from the foods the cows are eating)
“Life” means I have techniques like HCG, steak days, apple days, products to support faster metabolism and better detox processes up my sleeve and run a round of HCG when I need to…
I believe that part of the reason people are overweight these days is because we don’t weigh ourselves often enough. But how can we maintain health without information? We know so many health issues are challenged with excess weight, it seems like such silly advice for people not to keep an eye on it.
I love our testing.
I love HCG.
I love feeling my correct weight for me.
At New Leaf we can do testing to find out what foods are right for you!  Which weight loss process and/or detoxification process is right for you!
Have a beautiful day everyone!

Weight Loss or Fat Loss? Here at our Wynnum Clininc in Brisbane, we focus on permanent FAT LOSS!

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

If you are after weight loss only, you can do it easily, but it’s not safe to lose muscle!  Therefore we focus on permanent weight loss through aiming to lose only fat in our fat loss programme!

Many people want to lose body fat simply so they look good, however, having a high percentage of body fat is known to be one of the risk factors in just about every chronic disease known to man.  Elevated fat mass also increases muscle aches and pains and reduces energy and causes chronic fatigue and general tiredness.

In Australia and New Zealand, obesity is skyrocketing with 55-65% of men and women currently overweight or obese.  20-25% of children are also overweight or obese.  The good news is that even reducing your body fat by 10% greatly reduces your risk of chronic disease.  We all know it, but here are 5 great reasons to lose weight…

  1. Looking good means feeling great.  Excess body fat can affect your self-esteem.  Meeting a challenge, improving your health and looking better can improve your sense of accomplishment, self-esteem and health in countless ways.  You can do it!
  2. Improved energy levels. Overweight and obese people have much less energy than people who have a healthy body weight. More energy means more vitality.
  3. Reduced risk of developing many chronic diseases. Being overweight dramatically increases your risk of developing a number of chronic diseases. Losing weight and keeping it off improves your long term health!
  4. Healthy ageing. Obesity is related to unhealthy, premature ageing. Consider fat loss a type of “life insurance.”
  5. You can empower yourself.  Losing body fat is an incredibly powerful experience.  You are actualising something that only you have the power to do and only you will truly experience the personal reward.

Our fat loss programme, using regular cellular analysis (to ensure muscle maintenance and fat loss) also includes huge benefits such as:

  • highly discounted tests such as live blood analysis, insulin resistance…
  • highly discounted treatments such as lymphatic drainage massage for moving congestion…
  • highly discounted kinesiology balances for emotional reasons for weight gain – stress, self-sabotage etc
