While there are many metabolically unhealthy people at a “normal” weight, only 5% of obese people can claim to be metabolically healthy (and that’s if we use a very loose definition for “metabolic health”).
7 Sustainable Ways To Lose Weight (Backed by Science)
#1 Improve Gut Health
Gut health links directly to your immune system.
There’s a lot of interaction going on between the bacteria in your gut and the immune system.
Actually, around 70% of the immune system is hosted in the gut.
When not getting enough sleep 2 metabolic hormones controlling hunger & satiation signals – ghrelin & leptin – get disproportionally produced.
The body releases more ghrelin, spiking appetite & less leptin – makes us feel less satiated.
Proteins are essential and are the building blocks for muscle tissue, organs, bones, skin, hair, etc.
Protein-rich meals will keep you full longer and reduce the production of the so-called “hunger hormone” ghrelin.
Hydration is essential for every single process happening in our body.
It’s easy to oversee the signals of dehydration the body sends us.
Symptoms of dehydration are sleepiness, brain fog, feeling hungry, dry mouth, and headache.
It's common to UNDERestimate the amount of food/calories we consume daily.
Done right, a food journal might be your absolute best tool to achieve not just sustainable weight loss but a sustainable lifestyle change.
