When I tell people that weight loss may be the last thing that happens when trying to heal their body, I get a lot of unhappy faces...

Healthy weight loss needs to occur in a healthy body, so health needs to be established first. You may still lose weight, due to a reduction in overall inflammation, but fat loss usually takes some time.

Their response: " What if I lose weight, by dieting, first and then try to heal the body?"

Me: Trying to lose weight in a body that is already "broken", is like trying to build a house on a foundation that is cracked. It makes far more sense to fix the foundation--FIRST. Building a house on a cracked foundation would only add to the cracks, which would lead to even more issues and a harder time in fixing the foundation. The same is true with your metabolism.

Trying to lose weight, via dieting--eating less than your body is burning, in a body that is unhealthy creates more stress upon the body. For your body to heal, we need to get it out of stress, not cause more stress. We need to nourish and provide enough energy to give the systems of your body time and space to heal. Healthy sugars, enough protein, vitamins and minerals, rest, quality sleep, sun, proper breathing, time and patiences are all essential for healing. Eating low calorie or low carb are antagonistic to healing.

My advise: Take the time to heal. STOP focusing on the end result--weight loss. Instead focus on the journey, the day to day--eating the right foods, in the correct ratios and frequencies throughout out the day. The little shifts you do each day are going to make up the big shifts that get your body healthy and help support you in long term weight loss.

Focusing on weight loss is going to make you not only crazy, but will encourage you to make poor quick weight loss choices that may help with short term weight loss but never long term success.

Bottom line: Build a STRONG Foundation!
