Your Metabolism - Increase it and Lose Weight

Today, due to food processing and especially that done to our edible oils, our Thyroid gland becomes malnutritious and slows down. As it slows down, so does your metabolism.

See these symptoms below, and check if any or all of them fit to your situation.

Cold hands and feet, low body temperature, sensitivity to cold, a feeling of always being chilled, headaches, insomnia, dry skin, puffy eyes, hair loss, brittle nails, joint aches, constipation, mental dullness, fatigue, frequent infections, hoarse voice, ringing in the ears, dizziness, loss of libido, and weight gain, which is sometimes uncontrollable.

If these symptoms fit your situation, you might be suffering from hypothyroidism, or a low functioning of the thyroid gland. A sluggish thyroid means a sluggish metabolism, and that means weight gain no matter what diet you are on.

What can we do?

You may be consuming the wrong oils. Your polyunsaturated oils (soy, corn, . safflower) are now fed to pigs and livestock, as it causes them to gain weight. Corn and soy (and their oils) are now recognized at anti-thyroxin agents. These oils have Linoleic and linolenic acids, long-chain fatty acids, which have an anti-thyroid effect.

What can be done then?

There is a good natural way to stimulate the thyroid gland, and return to your natural and healthy weight. First of all, you must eat sensibly and try at all costs to eliminate the "white toxins" from your diet. These are, refined white sugar, refined white flour and chemically processed (including commercially fried) potato in any form. These also have a detrimental effect on your whole body, not just the thyroid gland.

Next you must change your oil consumption from the polyunsaturated varieties (once considered beneficial for your heart and circulatory systems, but now they are under study research to be culprits for a whole range of human maladies). You may be surprised to learn that the polyunsaturated oils are now fed to livestock, as they are natural anti-thyroxin agents and cause the animals to gain weight quickly!

Eat only VIRGIN or EXTRA-VIRGIN (meaning unprocessed and unadulterated in any way) olive oil, peanut oil, and if you can locate, coconut oil.

Eat these oils in small and logical quantities. If you must eat mayonnaise and other oily sauces, use these oils and make them yourself. With the new food processors, you can make a very delicious mayonnaise in 1 one minute using an egg, a bit of salt, a dash of lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil. Good for your heart and thyroid.

Your thyroid will turn back on, but you need to assist it to lose weight. This means a daily exercise program, a logical diet and banishing from your diet all culprit oils and products. Read food labels more carefully.

Do not be afraid of saturated fats. As long as there are no TRANS FATS included, saturated fats can be very good for you, and helpful for your thyroid. An example of this is peanuts or peanut butter (without any trans fats added).

To achieve a maximum effect from a rejuvenated thyroid gland, follow first of all a quick detox diet This is always beneficial. Next replace your edible fats as advised above, and third, follow a maintenance diet and exercise light program and you will see positive results from the first few days.
