Diet and Exercise
➎ SURPRISING SECRETS TO HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS. ➺ BY ISAAC ELIAZ, MD, LAc, MS
o you ever wonder why some people, no matter how hard they try, just can’t seem to achieve their healthy weight goals? It doesn’t matter what diet and exercise program they follow or how diligent they are—the weight just doesn’t budge. Or worse, they add more fat, rather than burning it. What’s going on? For some people, a wholesome diet and regular exercise can help them reach their weight goals in good time. But for many others, there’s more to the story. The truth is that healthy weight loss often requires an indepth look at issues such as hormone balance, stress, digestive and mitochondrial eﬃciency, inﬂammation, and other factors that play roles in determining how the body metabolizes and utilizes fat. These issues are best assessed with an integrative practitioner who can recommend the right protocol for each person’s individual health goals. To start, however, there are simple ways to support overall health that can also go a long way toward balancing the scales.
