  • Metabolic Resilience: The Key to Maintain a Healthy Weight & Health? Part 1

    What does that mean?

    According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition is:

    the capability of a strained body to recover its size and shape after deformation caused especially by compressive stress
    an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change.

    Why am I referring to this word in terms of metabolism?

    Reading this definition makes it quite obvious why metabolic resilience is essential. With continuous “stressors” and their effects on our bodies day to day, effects of our food and of our environment, we need to ensure our bodies’ ability to adapt.

    What happens when it cannot? How does it get overwhelmed to the point that it can’t?

    Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Can we reverse it?

    To understand this, we first have to define some of the common “stressors” and look at their effects. These “stressors” over time, with continued insult and no checks in place, contribute to chronic disease states.

    Here I will describe for you 5 common metabolic stressors, the science of how they affect our health, as well as ways to reduce the effects. I will present this blog post as 2 parts, as it gets a bit technical! In each section, I will lay out an action plan for you to work towards building metabolic flexibility- the key to adapting and recovering- the key to resilience.

  • Do Environmental Toxins Contribute to Weight Gain?

    Did you know that certain chemicals in our personal care products and in the environment around us affect our hormones? They are called endocrine disruptors— some of these are linked to weight gain and obesity. ⁣

    These chemicals contribute to weight gain by increasing the fat storage capacity of fat cells or by increasing the number of fat cells. Also, they may make it harder to maintain a healthy weight by changing hunger and fullness hormones, leading to more eating or by increasing the effects of high fat and high sugar diets.⁣

    ⁣If you and loved ones are looking to protect yourselves from such chemicals, and especially from the metabolic issues and resulting weight gain, read on.
