Terrible Toxins are Making You Fat

toxins2Our toxic world is one of the reasons we become overweight.

Toxins are stored in your fat cells and this is one of the primary reasons why many people have trouble maintaining healthy weight or losing excess weight.

Nearly 77,000 known chemicals are in active production and our exposure to these chemicals is greater than at any time in history. Our food supply gets hit with 3,000 added chemicals and more than 10,000 chemicals in the form of solvents, emulsifiers and preservatives are used in food processing and storage.

It’s a rare day that you are not subjected to poor air quality, chemically contaminated food and water, household cleaners, paint fumes, pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides and heavy metals.

Unfortunately when these chemicals find their way into our bodies they can remain there for years, silently causing damage.

This damage can result in the altering of our body’s metabolism, it can create enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and lower our threshold of resistance to chronic disease.

Studies show that we have between 400-800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. These chemicals and heavy metals make up the “total toxic” burden our bodies contain. When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete we begin to store these toxins and this accumulation seriously compromises our health.

In today’s modern world, with the increase of toxins within the environment and foods we eat it is not surprising that many people find themselves at a level of toxicity way past the point that the body’s own natural detoxification system can cope with. Chemicals and toxins build up in the body and cause problems regardless of your body’s weight.

The body retains fats as a way to protect the vital organs in the body from these toxins that we ingest (and create and release into our bodies through stress). When body fat begins to accumulate that usually means that toxins are accumulating too.

Body fat accumulation…especially around the mid-section is a visible sign of toxic build up and could even indicate a liver that is not functioning at peak performance. If your liver gets overloaded toxins begin circulating in your blood making you tired and sluggish.

Toxins can damage your organs and glands cause increased inflammation in your body, headaches, weight gain and generally make you feel “not so good”.

Everything that crosses your lips and enters your digestive system must be used by your body or it must be neutralized and eliminated as a waste product. If it is not eliminated, it is stored in your body and piles up like garbage. Not a pretty picture.

New evidence is emerging regarding the role of the level of toxins in the body as a contributing factor in excess weight. These toxins are stored in the body’s fat cells so people who have a higher body fat percentage store a greater amount of toxins.

Our body reacts to toxins in one of two ways…

First it tries to flush the toxins out and if that fails, it will try to lock the toxins away. If these toxins are building up faster than they can be eliminated, beyond a level with which the body’s detoxification pathways can cope, then the body begins to “dilute’ the amount of circulating toxins in an attempt to protect organs and tissues.

Body fat and water are our body’s way of protecting us from poisonous toxins by diluting them and storing them in water and fat. The majority of toxins are fat soluble so the body will also make new fat cells to store them as far away from vital organs as possible.

The body protects itself by holding onto fat to keep the toxins locked safely away.

The type of fat cells your body uses for this waste storage are particularly stubborn and the body does not give them up easily. This cause many people to have great difficulty in losing weight.

You need to help your body detoxify and give your body a chance to cleanse, repair and strengthen itself.

Guess what? When the toxins disappear so too does that protective layer of fat! That’s a good thing!

If you struggle to take weight off and keep it off, it’s time to toss everything you’ve ever been taught about dieting and exercise and learn what it really takes to win the weight loss battle once and for all.

You can lose that stubborn weight but you’ve got to start by being healthier. “Rebound Free Weight Loss” is your ticket to getting healthier, losing weight and keeping it off forever.
