Essential 1: Maximized Mind
A critical component to losing weight is your mindset. Before you do anything, you need to determine your “why.” Once you determine that, post it everywhere. Put it in your car, write it on your calendar, make yourself post-its and make it visible so you do not forget it. You also want to keep your stress levels low. Prolonged levels of stress have been found to cause an elevation of cortisol in the blood stream which increases abdominal fat. Improve your mindset and create a clean specific plan of action. This is the first step to losing weight.
Essential 2: Maximized Nerve Supply
The inability to lose weight is commonly a nerve condition. Compounded stress and injuries produce pressure on the nerves going to your organs, in many cases your pancreas, thyroid and adrenal glands. When nerves are damaged that go out to your digestive system, and the quality of nutrient absorption is affected. Restoring the integrity of the nervous system and the spinal column is one of the most important factors in balancing hormones and losing weight. Get adjusted— it will allow your body to properly function, balance your body’s hormones, and restore your metabolism.
Essential 3: Nutrition
You need to be aware that our food choices not only impact our health today, but also tomorrow. If we make poor choices, we can feel the impact on our energy levels, immunity, sleep patterns, and weight gain. Quality nutrition, or the nutrition that is ideal for your body, plays a significant role in how our bodies heal and function. The quality of our nutrients is directly responsible for feeding and providing energy for every cell in your body.
Essential 4: Maximized Oxygen and Lean Muscle
Exercise is a necessity for weight loss and healthy living. Burst training, or high intensity, short duration exercise has been found to be great for your heart, and great for your body. Unlike your classic aerobic exercise that puts a lot of stress on your body, this type will actually improve how the body heals and responds to stress along with getting you in the best shape of your life.
Essential 5: Minimized Toxins
We live in a toxic world. Artificial and manufactured toxins are everywhere whether you like it or not. Minimizing toxins is important when trying to lose weight. The chemical stress from these toxins wreaks havoc on your hormones causing weight issues in many people.
