CONTENT PROVIDED – “All you have to do is eat less and move more.” Not only is this categorically wrong, but it is extremely frustrating to hear, especially from your doctor.
Unfortunately, your doctor is sharing very old concepts with you. One is needed 17 years dear for the discoveries of scientific research to reach your doctor and change your medical advice. Talk show hosts and internet searches also often turn up incorrect or outdated information.
The problem is that even reliable sources like medical journals often spread bad information. The New England Journal of Medicine reported that “false and scientifically unsupported beliefs about obesity are widespread” in our medical journals.
Ideally, you would find the answers for yourself by studying the 500,000 published scientific papers on the subject, and about 100 new ones published every day. This, however, is a daunting task and not one that many will undertake. Dr. Whit Roberts of jungle offers an alternative.
“You can turn to the experts who have made it their life’s work to study the hundreds of thousands of pages of research or, more likely, to the doctors who follow those experts,” he said.
Roberts, one of those doctors, tells us there are some fascinating facts you’ve probably never heard that can jump-start or sustain your weight-loss efforts. Here you have only three.
By now, you’ve probably heard of intermittent fasting. What you haven’t heard about is chronobiology, or the study of how the rhythms of the sun, moon, and seasons affect the mental, physical, and emotional cycles of our bodies. That study won the researchers the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2017.
Roberts explains that his research has led to a refined understanding of the most effective form of intermittent fasting, adding that it matters when you fast, not just how long you fast.
Apparently, the old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is really true, even though a thousandlions of Americans are jumping. Among the many things you’ll learn as a Jungl weight loss patient is why breakfast is important. Roberts explains that calories eaten in the morning are treated differently by the body than calories eaten at night.
In the morning, your body is preparing for the need for ready energy by converting your food into glycogen, a short-term energy storage molecule. To achieve this, your body burns those hated fat stores. However, it’s a completely different story in the evening. The body prepares for a restful and restorative night’s sleep. Calories eaten at dinner or in the evening are most often stored as fat, a long-term energy storage molecule.
“The take home message (is that) skipping dinner is much more effective than skipping breakfast for weight loss,” Roberts said. “Other things being equal, you’ll lose more weight fasting in the evening than in the morning.”
Two: bad bacteria
A second truth about weight loss straight from the scientific literature is that bad bacteria in the gut cause weight gain. One of Roberts’ patients learned this the hard way. Tory, a 43-year-old woman, went to Jungl after she suddenly started gaining weight. She gained 40 pounds in six months despite dieting.
She went to the doctor and had her hormones and thyroid tested. they were fine He even hired a personal trainer. Nothing I did seemed to make a difference. She just kept gaining weight.
At jungle, Roberts performed a thorough examination including an evaluation of his medical history and tests. He learned that he had had two courses of antibiotics for a severe sinus infection before the weight gain. Those antibiotics had killed off a lot of his good and bad bacteria. As the bacteria colonies grew again, the bad guys gained more ground as he consumed sodas and sugary treats that they preferentially fed on.
Tory underwent a course of healing at Jungl, lost 45 pounds, experienced a huge increase in energy, and saw a dramatic decrease in her anxiety throughout her life. Now, Tory is a huge advocate of Jungl and the therapies and healing modalities offered there.
Three: hidden fat
The third science-backed weight loss fact Roberts shares surprises almost everyone who hears it: The chicken is more fat than the beef. Yes, you and I have been deceived. Eating just one chicken breast every 10 days has been shown to cause significant weight gain, as shown in more than one study. It’s no wonder many are struggling with weight loss as they force down diet-approved chicken breast every day.
jungle helps dispel this misinformation, industry-biased propaganda, and popular myths. This article covers only a few of these. Roberts has developed his proprietary weight loss protocols over his 25 years of practice incorporating evidence-based weight loss methods. If you struggle with stubborn weight, her scientific approach to identifying and correcting the underlying causes of your stubborn weight may be right for you.
Roberts is quick to explain that this stubborn weight can be caused by a much larger variety of conditions beyond the scope of this article. These can include toxins, insomnia, infection, allergies, hormonal imbalances, candida, emotional issues, liver and gallbladder dysfunction, and many more. He and his staff identify and treat all of these possible underlying conditions with their weight loss protocols.
“Testing is the key to uncovering potential underlying issues that are making your weight loss efforts so difficult,” he said.
