How to Conquer Obesity through Balanced Choices

Aug 17, 2007
Excess fat storage in the body is the result of consuming a greater quantity of acid and toxic calories than the body can properly metabolize and eliminate. When this occurs, the body has no alternative but to store the toxins, along with the excess calories, as fat.

People who have a different genetic makeup, and who eat basically the same diet but do not have a weight problem, tend to burn the excess calories and store the toxins in their organs.

Obese people have a greater risk of becoming ill or of dying from most diseases. They are more apt to become injured or have accidents.

Fat storage around the mid-section, or abdominal obesity, is associated with a high risk of coronary artery disease, which can include high blood pressure, adult onset diabetes, and high levels of fats in the blood.

An overweight problem can be due to eating too many calories, liver congestion, glandular malfunction, and the fluid that the body retains to dilute toxins. The most offending foods are trans fats and sugars. People who eat as little as others but seem to gain weight in spite of this are often deficient in the digestive enzyme lipase, and the food-form minerals chromium, zinc, and selenium.

Lipase is required by the body to digest fat in order to utilize it as energy. Chromium is required for insulin to work efficiently in controlling hunger, regulating energy production, and utilizing fat. The secretion of healthy bile is essential for dissolving and eliminating fat.

In addition to the physical contributors of an overweight problem, there is usually an emotional component that needs to be addressed to achieve a permanent return to the body's ideal weight. "Within every big person is a big emotional issue begging for attention and resolution."

Weight problems are corrected by detoxifying the body through cleansing the colon and liver, and changing to a healthy lifestyle. The body must be made less acid. The best foods that help to do this are fresh vegetable juices made from carrots, celery, spinach, beets, parsley, and a little ginger.

A healthy lifestyle includes adequate regular exercise to activate the lymph system and help burn stored calories, as well as a diet that supplies all the required nutrients and live enzymes. Supplements to clean the colon, plus enzymes and complete protein products are very helpful.

An overweight body is actually starving for wholesome alkaline nutrition. A person with an acidic body cannot lose weight and keep it off. It doesn't matter what diet is tried, the results will only be temporary unless acid/alkaline balance is restored.
