    7. 7. Why ARE YOU FAT?• Food delayed sensitivity allergies• Metabolic Syndrome (insulin =fat storage)• Vitamin Deficiencies• Viruses like EBV, HHV6 - Herpes and CMV• Stress, emotional and/or physical (the cortisol connection)• Food Addiction (salt, sugars, fats) via dopamine reward pathway. Using displacement theory in Food Addiction support groups
    8. 8. Foundational Hormone Axis You Are In The Bermuda Triangle of Fat !
    9. 9. Hypothyroidism and FAT • Central nervous system: – Fatigue! – Drowsiness – Poor memory and concentration • Decreased metabolism: – Body weight increases – Heat production goes down – Basal metabolic rate goes down • Gut: decreased activity; constipation • Cardiovascular – decreased cardiac output; blood pressure falls
    10. 10. THYROID – COMMON SYPMTOMS• Weight gain, difficulty losing weight, loss of energy, feeling “sluggish”• Depressed mood, usually not as severe as major depression but may play a part• Low body temperature• PMS• Premature menopause• Losing hair ( alopecia)• Chronic constipation• Decreased memory and brain “fog”• Sleep issues ( too much or too little but not rested)
    11. 11. ADRENALSCommon Symptoms of Adrenal Dysfunction Weight gain, especially in waist hips and thighs ( cortisol response) Crave sugar/starch and sometimes salt Fatigue Low blood pressure which may becomes elevated in middle age Allergies Exercise does not promote weight loss . . . And may even gain! Low blood sugar usually after lunch Muscle loss and flab even with exercise Wakes up every few hours at night Is more hungry during the day if eats breakfast Low or no libido!
    12. 12. FEMALE SEX STEROIDS Hormones make you fat!!! Don’t they? Improves insulin sensitivity ( less cortisol, less fat storage) Improves muscle mass, strength, and metabolism Better muscle mass = increased metabolic rate, and you burn more calories Increased serotonin function which decreases cravings and desires for comfort foods Inhibits MAO enzyme activity, which prolongs activity of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine and helps to decrease appetite Restores normal sleep stages, which lowers cortisol, increases GH (growth hormone), and improves nighttime muscle repair More?
    13. 13. Some Symptoms Of Estradiol Imbalances Weight gain Insomnia Hot flushes or flashes Night sweats Memory, communication, and attention span loss, brain “fog”, depression, and/or anxiety to panic attacks Mood swings Aches and pain Incontinence Digestive disturbances Sensory function loss Ageing skin . . . thinning, wrinkles, sagging
    14. 14. A Word About Progesterone . . . Increases energy and libido Has a calming effect, acting like a benzodiazepine to the brain Enhances mood Regulates fluid balance, sodium mineral balance Balances blood sugar Necessary for fertility Increases energy and libido Helps relieve menopausal symptoms Decreases risk of endometrial cancer and may help protect against breast cancer, fibrocystic breasts, and osteoporosis
    15. 15. Correct Labs: A begining to BalanceAdrenal/Hyperinsulinism 3hr GTT with concomitant insulin blood draws fasting draw for glucose, insulin and cortisol 1hr draw for glucose and insulin 2hr draw for glucose and insulin 3hr draw for glucose, insulin and cortisol

    26. 26. The Law of Conservation of Energy“Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but it can change forms.” Cady’s corollary: “You can’t lose weight if you’re eating more than you can burn.”
    27. 27. Wired Magazine – Nov. 2008: Change in food consumption1969-1971 3,040 calories increased to 3,760 calories per day2001-2003
    28. 28. Current stats on obesity National Center for Health Statistics
    29. 29. The Doc Cady “Candy Bar a Day” Weight Loss Program• 1 lb. of fat = 3,500 kcal (“calories”)• 3,500 / 7 = 500 calories per day – You need to not eat’em, or burn’em • Starving yourself slows your metabolism down, and you lose muscle mass – Therefore: reduce 250 calories; burn 250 calories• 250 calories = no candy bar, or “NO” to 1 & ½ Cokes• 250 calories = ½ - ¾ hour on treadmill• NET = 500 calories per day, or 1 lb. lost per week
    30. 30. Glycemic index• A measure of how fast a carbohydrate triggers a rise in circulating blood sugar.• The higher the number, the greater the blood sugar response.

Stress management. Decent lifestyle.
