Do you struggle to lose weight?
Did you know that there are factors beyond calories that determine our weight?
Studies have shown that when people lose weight rapidly, the environmental toxins in their blood can go up. If these are not efficiently eliminated via our detox organs, weight loss stalls e.g. via lowered thyroid function and slower metabolic rate.
So, could increasing fat storage be a protective mechanism the body uses to protect us from these toxins?
And could weight gain be a response to what's happening in our gut microbiome, hormones, and levels of inflammation?
