How Did You Gain Weight?
There are many ways that people gain weight.
Maybe you’re thinking: “Oh, yes? It’s just from eating too much and exercising too little!” But you would be wrong.
New research is coming out daily that is finally breaking the lock-hold on MYTH-information from the Diet Industry that makes BILLIONS of dollars convincing you that something is wrong with you because you weigh more than others.
This is how the Diet Industry blames you for being fat:
- You ate too much
- You didn’t exercise enough
- You ate too much sugar
- You ate too many carbs
But this is what UNBIASED new research is now showing:
- Weight is mostly related to inherited characteristics – just like your hair color and height
- Weight gain as an adult is highly correlated with Abuse, neglect and humiliation as a very young child (birth- 6 years old)
- Exercise (excess) is stressful for your body and doesn’t contribute to permanent loss
- 95% of ALL TYPES OF DIETS, lifestyle changes, restricting any food groups (carbs, sugar) results in regaining weight within 2 months to two years.
- Lack of sleep can cause weight gain (it’s stressful)
- Socio-economically deprived people weigh more than the 1% (except Oprah)
- Suffering from Chronic and “serial” STRESS- being poor, unemployed, abused, struggling economically, lonely, humiliated can damage your metabolism (thyroid disease)
- Negative thoughts about your body and self cause stress that affects your metabolism
- Thyroid conditions are the most under diagnosed and under-treated diseases out of every disorder
- Fat people are discriminated against by their doctors (even when their doctor is heavy)
- Being heavier than what the insurance actuary tables show can actually increase your lifespan, rather than shorten it. Just because you weigh more, doesn’t mean you will have more illness or diseases.
- Many Type2 Diabetics are thin (and stressed)
If you look at the foundational problem of weight gain that unbiased newer research is showing,
it boils down to this:
STRESS is the cause of weight gain
With this information, I hope you will realize that blaming yourself for gaining weight,
or not being able to maintain weight loss is NOT YOUR FAULT.
Most people can remember a stressful time or event that occurred in their lives at the time when their weight started increasing. You don’t get overweight because you eat too much, you eat too much because you are stressed! Eating “comfort food” is our body’s attempt to deal with stress – it’s just a symptom you are stressed.
If you had terrible headaches from a migraine and kept taking pain killers, you realize that NOT going to make the headaches go away. Painkillers are treating a symptom- not the cause. Just like dieting is treating the symptom (binge eating, emotional eating) and not the cause- which is STRESS! In order to stop emotional eating, you MUST deal with the stress that’s causing it! Learning how to eat mindfully is not enough. You need a Stop Stress Eating Program.
Is Chronic STRESS making you overweight?
Everyone has stress sometimes. But some people cope with stress better than others. For those people who can’t manage stress, their lives can be filled with both physical symptoms, unhappiness- AND even WEIGHT GAIN!
What triggers your stress? Your body’s emotional and physical reaction to stress was designed by nature to be short-term to save your life and escape from predators and danger. But then the stress reaction was supposed to stop quickly! The problem is that the way we live our modern lives, stress has become chronic and never turns off: worrying about paying bills on time, relationship problems, working with a boss that’s driving you crazy; caregiver burnout, lack of sleep, listening to the news, driving in traffic, hating your body… Your response to stress can end up being worse that the actual thing that is causing your stress! Chronic stress will make you sick and even fat!
How can the Stop Stress Eating Program help me manage my eating?
If you’ve been on every diet, but always regain the weight you struggled to lose, stop blaming yourself. You don’t overeat from being hungry – you overeat from STRESS! Sometimes you’re not even overeating, but you all of a sudden start gaining weight! It’s your body’s natural response to the hormone cortisol which is released from stress. That’s when you get belly fat.
Think about your life and when you gained weight. The vast majority of people gained weight after or during a stressful time or event in their lives! If you go on a diet it actually causes MORE stress to your body. You need to learn how to manage the stress in your life, which is causes you to over-eat, and binge and slows your metabolism. You need to build your resiliency to stress.
This is a Stop Stress Eating Program plan that doesn’t make you change anything you eat- it helps you stop emotional eating by learning how to manage stressful feelings before grabbing for comfort food. It has been the most successful method for people to gain mastery to stop overeating and manage their weight – and it is achieved with stress relief alone! Eat what you enjoy, and use food as part of your stress relief program.
In just six weeks, using HeartMath’s Stopping Stress Eating Program test participants’ group weight average decreased by an impressive 5.2 pounds, though a number reported approximately 12-pound losses. The average waist circumference dropped 2.1 inches and hip circumference 1.78 inches. Participants also reported increased feelings of calmness. These results were accomplished without any direction in regard to food or exercise but rather focusing on taking care of their emotional well-being first.
emWave Personal Stress Reliever
How do you know if the stress relief practice you do is even working? I’ve found that using a biofeedback kind of device keeps me focused on actually changing the way my heart beats! But you couldn’t tell that if you were not getting the actual measurable readings from your body. Practicing using the the emWave Personal Stress Reliever or Inner Balance is like using biofeedback to SHOW you in REAL TIME how you are able to physically change your body’s physiology and lower stress levels throughout your body.
