4 New Weight Loss Terms and What You Need To Know

I have spotted some new IMPORTANT stuff I wanted to share today.

I’m trying to remove the confusion which seems to surround the whole area of exercise and nutrition.

This has meant that I have spent a lot more time reading – researching books, scientific journals and the internet.

Every now and then I come across a new word or term which I have never seen before.

They all relate to your health and weight loss efforts.

If you can get your head around this lot then you will have a better idea of what you need to do to lose weight.

So in this article I will share with you 4 new terms relating to weight loss and health, which you will find useful.

1. Diabesity

This one has been popping up on my radar the longest out of this list.

This info relates to type II diabetes or diet controlled diabetes.

Diabesity is a term used to describe a certain type of combination of having diabetes and obesity, 2 for 1 as it were!

The good news is it reversible.

Diabesity can range from mild insulin sensitivity to full on diabetes.

Diabesity is caused mainly by:

Poor lifestyle
Bad diet
Lack of exercise
Environmental toxins
Insulin Resistance

This is the bit you need to understand to control your weight.

Insulin is the worst for people wanting to lose weight.

When you eat anything, your body releases insulin to convert your food to energy (glycogen).

When your diet is packed with sugar, refined carbs (pasta, bread, cereal) your body will slowly start to become resistant to the effects of insulin. Insulin resistance.

This is bad.

Insulin is a massive growth hormone, and makes you fat.

The higher your insulin level is the worse your insulin resistance is.

Insulin resistance can lead to premature aging, cancer, heart disease and a lot more!

The good thing is that Diabesity was caused by your lifestyle it means it can be reversed by changing your lifestyle.

Firstly you should see your doctor and see what he suggests.

The usual advice is to eat less do more.

You then need to look at your nutritional habits and change them for the better by ditching the bad foods, sugary processed foods and switching them for natural, clean whole foods.

Also add more exercise to your life and keep some time free to relax and unwind and you should start to see the effects of Diabesity reverse.

2. Toxic Load

Your toxic load is the amount of “toxins” you are personally exposed to.

The amount you have coming into your body from all sources(Food, air and water), and the length of time you have been exposed to that level.

The higher your toxic load the larger the negative effect it will have on your body.

Our body is not designed to handle all of these toxins that life throws at us and it all adds up until we inevitably crash.

Hundreds of diseases are linked to toxins but the majority of people don’t see the link and therefore do nothing about it.

You can’t live 100% toxic free, it’s impossible but you can do a lot to reduce your toxic load and improve your health.

How to reduce your toxic load:

Eat more organic food
Go on a detox
Switch to green cleaning products like vinegar and baking soda
Aim to drink filtered water
Install an air purifier at home
Aim to use glass instead of plastic containers to store food

3. Endocrine (Hormone) Disruptors

Endocrine disruptor is a term used to describe harmful chemicals which cause a variety of different problems in the endocrine (HORMONE) system – including birth defects, asthma, autism and ADD.

Any system in the body controlled by hormones, can be wrecked by hormone disruptors.

Manmade toxic chemicals as you know cause a variety of damage and are found in everything from the air we breathe, the toiletries you use to the plastic containers we keep food in.

None of these harmful chemicals were in anyone’s bodies 100 years ago but now they are everywhere.

I believe, an overload of these chemicals will literally destroy our body, it will lose its ability to fight off disease, think clearly and basically function properly.

The critical period of development for most organisms is between the transition from a fertilized egg, into a fully formed infant. As the cells begin to grow and differentiate, there are critical balances of hormones and protein changes that must occur. Therefore, a dose of disrupting chemicals may do substantial damage to a developing fetus (baby). The same dose may not significantly affect adult mothers. (Wiki)

4. Obesogens

Related and very similar to endocrine disruptors.

Obesogens are as the name suggests, are closely linked to obesity.

Obesogens are foreign chemical compounds which affect our metabolism.

The Obesogens disrupt normal development and balance of fat metabolism; this can sometimes leads to obesity as you struggle to maintain a healthy weight.

Obesogens wreak havoc in our body by causing an imbalance and affecting fat storage, they disrupt energy, appetite, change your metabolism and make you store FAT!

These can often enter the body through pharmaceutical drugs, which are meant to make you well, not sick.

Obesogens can make it difficult to lose weight and could be one of the reasons why many people who try hard, still struggle to lose weight.

These obesogens or toxins get stored in the liver and FAT CELLS.

The higher your levels of toxins the more difficult you will find it to lose weight.

Obesogens are found everywhere in life and people interact with them every day. You can find them in water bottles, microwavable popcorn, plastic toys, pesticides, kitchen pans and shower curtains!

To lower your obesogen exposure you need to try and avoid things such as:

Plastic containers
Air fresheners
Non stick pans
Pre packaged foods

Avoiding those plus eating as much organic foods as possible will dramatically lower your exposure to obesogens and unlock your ability to lose fat.

It has been suggested that early exposure to obesogens in a person’s younger years will increase their chances of becoming obese when they are older. If a child is obese, the research says it’s likely they will be obese adults.

So there we have the four fairly new terms, to keep you in the loop as it were.

I hope you have learnt something and have found this info useful.

Thanks for reading.

Take care,

The Effect of Synthetic Chemicals on the Endocrine System

The endocrine system is a collective of glands and the associated hormones they excrete. Hormones regulate several functions within the body including sexual development, development of the foetus in the womb and reproductive function.

The endocrine system also supports energy production and the control of metabolism in the body. The endocrine system supports the development of the brain and nervous system. The endocrine system supports mood and tissue function. The Hormone system begins working from the time of conception and continues working through to our passing.

How do chemicals effect and manipulate the Endocrine System?

There is potential for Hormone altering chemicals to affect the growing foetus even when the mother is exposed to very low level of chemicals during pregnancy. During a foetus’ development, hormones regulate how cells divide and function. Hormones work to distinguish and form the organs and physical system of the body.

The chemicals that can cause damage to the growing foetus are called teratogens or teratogenic compounds. The growing foetus is most susceptible between days 15 and 60 from conception. During this time period the physiological systems and organs are laid out.

There is still potential for damage before and after this “organogenesis” period.

Some of the chemicals that can cause Endocrine disruption

Dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) has been used as a pesticide in America since the1930’s. Half a century ago, biologists started studying the effects of DDT on laboratory animals, it was found that DDT interfered with reproductive development. Research has also discovered that DDT can inhibit the complete development of female reproductive organs. This can adversely affect reproduction abilities.

Polychlorinated biphenyls
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s) can be found in industrial products and lubricants. It is manufactured by heating benzene and chloride. Health effects have been seen in individuals working at the manufacturing plants.

Bisphenol A
Bisphenol A is found in many plastic products. A recent report has expressed concerns regarding exposure of foetuses, infants, and young children.

Polybrominated diphenyl ethers
Typically used as a fire retardant. It can be found in building materials, electronics, furnishings, motor vehicles, airplanes, plastics, polyurethane and fabric.

Phthalates are found in some cosmetics and air fresheners as well as children’s soft toys. Phthalates are to cause potential health concern as they are known to disrupt the endocrine system of mammals.

There is some evidence to suggest there has been a rise of birth defects to the male reproductive system.

Alkylphenols are used as a precursor for the manufacture of detergents, in lubricants and fuels. Alkylphenols can be found in Rubber products, glues and coatings.

Disease caused as a result of Chemical exposure through the Endocrine system
Breast cancer, prostate cancer and testicular cancer are believed to be closely associated with contact with various Endocrine disruptors. The effects Endocrine disruptors have on the cause of Autism are also being closely studied. Disabilities caused as a result of missing or Abnormal DNA also have a connection to the amount of Endocrine Disruptors in the Environment.
