Understanding Weight Loss: The Basics

Within the last 12 months, 50% of Americans have tried to lose weight. Obesity is soaring, and bariatric surgeries continue to occur at staggering rates, all because Americans want to improve their overall health. They simply don’t know how.

When crash diets, excessive exercise, and cosmetic procedures don’t work long-term, people regain all the weight, lose hope, and often resort to drastic medical procedures. Thankfully, understanding the science behind weight loss can help you reach your weight loss goals faster and enjoy all the perks of a healthier body.

The science behind weight loss

Your metabolism operates in two fundamental states: anabolism (builds) and catabolism (breaks down). A balance between these two states allows your body to be in homeostasis. When we eat certain foods and participate in certain activities, our metabolism enters an anabolic state, which causes us to gain weight. And when we prioritize other foods and activities, our metabolism enters a catabolic state, which helps us lose weight. Successfully losing weight, and keeping it off, through our program in Washington DC relies on making choices that promote your body’s natural catabolic state.

Importance of a balanced diet

Your body needs a variety of nutrient-dense foods available in Washington DC to function at optimal levels, which is why a balanced diet is the cornerstone of good health. Lean proteins are necessary for building muscle, carbohydrates turn into energy, healthy fats build cell membranes, vitamins regulate cell functioning, and minerals strengthen your bones and teeth.

Furthermore, a balanced diet bolsters your immune system and shields you against many chronic diseases. When you join our Catabolic Awakening™ program, you’ll learn the science of a balanced diet.

No longer will you be fooled by deceitful packaging or fall victim to hidden ingredients in popular foods. You’ll be easily able to walk into any grocery store or order any dish, and know with certainty that the foods you eat contribute to a balanced diet.

Common weight loss myths debunked

With so much conflicting information about weight loss, it’s no wonder that weight loss myths run rampant online, in books, and social circles in Washington DC. To help you navigate the misinformation, here are the six most common weight loss myths and why they’re just plain wrong.

Myth: Starvation is the best way to lose weight.

Fact: Starvation is not a great way to lose weight. Not only is starvation not sustainable long-term, but it actually results in you losing lean muscle mass, tissue, and bone in addition to fat in the beginning. Over time, it also slows down your metabolism, which then causes your body to start storing fat instead.

Myth: All carbs are bad.

Fact: There are three different kinds of carbohydrates: sugars (simple carbohydrates), starches (complex carbohydrates), and fiber (which is also a complex carbohydrate). Simple carbohydrates (like table sugar and naturally occurring sugars found in fruit and dairy) are not good for you because they are digested quickly, cause your blood sugar to spike, and make you feel hungry sooner. However, starches and fiber are digested slowly, have more nutrients in them, and keep you feeling full longer.

Myth: Fat makes you fat.

Fact: Fats are actually an essential part of your diet. They help your body absorb vitamins, lower cholesterol, keep your blood sugar in check, and reduce inflammation. Additionally, fats produce energy, stimulate cell growth, and maintain healthy brain functioning.

Myth: You can eat whatever you want if you exercise.

Fact: While a simple ‘calories in, calories out’ approach may make it seem like you can eat whatever you want as long as you exercise enough, the methodology doesn’t work for most of the population. The amount of exercise needed to burn such large numbers of calories found in calorie-dense foods, like processed snacks and alcohol, is an unsustainable daily habit for most, not to mention that burning calories through exercise gets more difficult as we age.

Myth: You need supplements to lose weight.

Fact: Studies have shown that supplements do not have an effect on calories burned, metabolism, or total weight loss. In fact, many supplements on the market have never been studied in humans, are not regulated by the government, and can even interfere with certain prescribed medications.

Myth: To lose weight, you can’t eat snacks.

Fact: Having the occasional healthy snack can help you lose weight because it helps you curb cravings, feel full longer, activate your metabolism, burn fat, and regulate your blood sugar. Just be sure to reach for whole foods and avoid processed snacks when trying to lose weight.
