Have You Been Given the Wrong Reason for Being Overweight?

Trouble Losing WeightIíve heard it on TV, read it in books and have been told all sorts of reasons for having gained weight. Iíve been told that eating food had something to do with my emotional state.  Iíve been told that it is my will power that is the problem.  Iíve been told I eat the wrong foods. Iím been told that Iím allergic to certain foods. Iíve been told it is just part of aging.  Iíve been told many many more theories.

All of these reasons for weight gain didnít help me to really lose weight. Thus, they were obviously the wrong reasons.

These diets put me on so many restrictions of all different types of foods that I started to get confused.  What could I eat, what couldnít I eat?   Why did I have this problem?

I tried to follow each given reason and weight loss program and each diet and sometimes I lost weight.  But then I gained the weight back.

So, I decided I had to find out for myself.  I looked at what worked and what didnít work.

I remembered that my best diet was high protein, low carbs Ė started with Dr. Atkins Diet Ė and when I tried some other low carb diets, I lost weight.  But then, of course, low carb also meant non-processed foods and if I ate less than 70 carbs a day and didnít eat milk & wheat, I lost weight.  Actually, I lost weight if I didnít eat milk and wheat.

So following this line of thought, I figured there was some reason that this worked on me, for a while anyway, until I got tired of the food.

I also knew that while some diets worked for some people, no diet worked for everyone.   I kept searching.

I realized finally that overweight wasnít a medical condition.  Overweight was a symptom of something wrong in the body.  Just like high blood pressure is a symptom, or high cholesterol is a symptom, overweight is also a symptom of non-optimum health.

I kept searching.  Then I read ďYou donít lose weight to be healthy, you get healthy to lose weightĒ.  That made sense.   He talked about stubborn weight issues.  That made sense.

I found Dr. Bergís book ďThe Seven Principles of Fat BurningĒ.  It had lots of information.  You can follow the clues and locate the correct reason for weight gain and do something about it. It leads to good health. And when you build good health, you lose weight.  It worked for me.

You can read our article on Dr. Bergís Book and see what you think.
