  4. 4. The Calorie Myth<br />Calorie: Amount of energy needed of raise 1 gram of water from 14-15 degrees Celsius.<br />In 1930 two American doctors, Newburgh and Johnson, of the University of Michigan, suggested in one of their papers that ”obesity results from a diet too high in calories, rather than from any metabolic deficiency.” <br />They later published studies to retract their findings.<br />
  5. 5. Harvard Studies<br />Less than 7% of weight loss attempts are successful. The typical dieter “ultimately gains 5 pounds over and above his/her starting weight for every diet he/she goes on.”<br />School of Public Health: “Low-fat diets of 1500 calories lost significantly less weight than did low-carb diets of 1800 calories. Over a 12-week period the low-carb group consumed 25,000 more calories, but lost on average 3 more pounds than the low-fat 1500 calorie group.”<br />
  6. 6. Harvard Studies<br />Dr. David Ludwig found that the type of calorie consumed for breakfast can affect the metabolism and the amount of calories consumed later in the day.<br />“Those who ate instant or steel-cut oatmeal for breakfast consumed 81% and 51% more food, respectively, later in the day the group who ate an omelet for breakfast.”<br />
  7. 7. Factors that Affect Weight Loss<br />Non-Caloric Food Choices<br />Hormone Regulation<br />Inflammatory Status<br />Systemic pH<br />Physical Activity<br />
  8. 8. Non-Calorie Food Choices<br />
  9. 9. Hormone Regulation<br />Blood Sugar<br />“Those who ate instant or steel-cut oatmeal for breakfast consumed 81% and 51% more food, respectively, later in the day the group who ate an omelet for breakfast.”<br />

  14. 14. Inflammatory Status<br />"Allergic edema, or water retention, is one of the most misunderstood problems of overweight. It is a reversible disorder of the capillaries...During an allergic reaction, some of the fluid that is part of the blood plasma leaks through the allergically enlarged pores of the temporarily malfunctioning capillaries into the surrounding tissue, causing it to puff up with fluid...When the food of chemical that caused the allergic reaction is no longer present in the body...the 'allergic' fluid that has leaked into the tissues returns to the general circulation...taking with it important pounds of your unnecessary water weight..." -Dr. Marshall Mandell, M.D<br />
  15. 15. Inflammatory Status<br />"It has been clinically observed that maladaptive reactions to foods, chemicals, and inhalants most often produce localized inflammatory edema and toxicity in specific target tissues and/or organs of the body. This reaction compromises the healthy functioning of the local tissues in several ways. First, associated with kinin-mediated inflammatory edema is an often severely lowered oxygen level in the specific reacting tissue. This results in cellular injury, which makes further demands for specific nutrients already in short supply...""To put it another way, each time there exists an acute allergic reaction resulting from a nutritional deficiency, no matter what the specific reaction is, there simultaneously exists an inflammatory edema causing a local reaction. Once this has occurred, a favorable biological state exists for a flareup of infection....more severe allergic sensitivity also results.” -Dr. Wm. Philpott, M.D.<br />

  17. 17. Systemic pH<br />pH is a measurement of the concentration of hydrogen ions in solutions. pH is an abbreviation of is the phrase “potential of Hydrogen.”<br />Measure pH with “litmus” or “hydrion” paper<br />Factors that negatively affect pH: poor sleep, inflammatory foods, low mineral consumption, dehydration, stress, EMP, infections, chemical/metal toxicity, inflammation, etc.<br />
  18. 18. Systemic pH<br />Test pH with first urinary void in the morning. When you are waking up for the day, not when having interrupted sleep.<br />Optimal range: 6.4-7.0<br />Changing pH: <br />High dose calcium lactate or coral calcium taken right before bed<br />Avoid inflammatory foods<br />Go to sleep before 10:30pm<br />Other nutritional/herbal supplementation based on presentation<br />

  21. 21. Physical Activity<br />MAF Method<br />180 – (Age) = Target Heart Rate (high)<br />Example: <br />180 – 62 = 118 (Keep HR between 108-118)<br />You should be able to hold a conversation without “panting” while exercising.<br />Allows for sugar depletion and fat utilization of cells.<br />
  22. 22. Weight Loss Summary<br />1. Eat a natural, whole-food based diet consisting of lean protein, fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, legumes, and healthy fats such as Olive Oil, butter, avocados, etc.<br />2. Eat a high protein breakfast, such as a protein shake or eggs to help regulate hormone activity.<br />3. Eat food high in fiber to normalize blood sugar for hormone regulation.<br />4. Don’t skip meals. Eat regularly and stop eating at least 2-3 hours before bedtime, when your metabolism naturally slows down. This supports hormone activity.<br />5. Monitor and support your systemic pH.<br />6. Increase your lean muscle mass with interval and resistance exercise and by following the MAF method.<br />7. Eliminate sweet beverages (sugar and sugar substitutes). Drink lots of clean water.<br />
