Do you eat right & exercise like crazy but still cant lose weight? There are 2 reasons why this may be a problem for you.
1. High Insulin
When you eat high glycaemic Index (GI) foods, over time your body needs more insulin to control your sugar levels. One study on insulin found that over 6 months, people put on 8.7kg even though they reduced their calories by almost 300 a day! The higher your insulin levels, the higher your Body Set Weight (BSW). A normal reading is under 8 though some laboratories report that a level of under 20 is normal. So if you’ve had your levels checked recently or are going to, always get a copy of your blood test results for yourself .
2. Slow Thyroid.
One of the main functions of your Thyroid gland is to regulate your metabolism. When the thyroid gland isn’t getting the nutrients it needs to work properly the whole body slows down. Resistant weight is one of the main symptoms. What is a normal TSH reading? Between 0.5-2. Most laboratories will report that under 5 is normal, but this is too high.
If you’re suffering from resistant weight, book an appointment to see Biljana. If you have recent blood test results please bring them & I can offer herbal or nutritional supplementation to support healthy Insulin & thyroid levels!
