offers a solution for losing weight and keeping that weight off by exploring the factors that affect weight gain and loss.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Nicolette Dumke, food and dieting expert, explains why past diets have failed and demonstrates how to make this year’s weight loss resolution a reality in her new book “Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Weight Loss: Control Your Body Chemistry, Reduce Inflammation and Improve Your Health” (ISBN 9781887624190, Allergy Adapt 2011).
Americans’ most common New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. Yet, as a country, we are becoming more obese every year and are facing a national epidemic of weight-related health problems, including increased cases of diabetes. The problem with losing weight is not always due to lack of willpower, but more often, because of faulty past assumptions that ignored facts about how our bodies store and burn fat.
Nicolette Dumke’s new book “Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Weight Loss” is not another diet book. Instead, it systematically exposes the diet hoaxes of the past and why they did not work. And most importantly, it offers a solution for losing weight and keeping that weight off by exploring the factors that affect weight gain and loss.
Readers will learn why:
- Calories are not the primary determining factor in how we lose weight. Weight loss is more complicated than the number of calories consumed minus number burned.
- Weight-related hormones must be understood and controlled because our hormones, including insulin, cortisol, and leptin, are what really determine our weight.
- Insulin levels are integral to effective weight loss. If insulin levels are high, dietary fat will be stored in the fat cells instead of used for energy. High insulin levels inhibit the activity of a fat-mobilizing enzyme, thus prohibiting the burning of body fat! Hunger is a sign of high insulin.
- Proper timing of meals and snacks can control insulin levels and hunger by keeping the body in a “burn fat” mode that keeps your blood sugar level stable and your insulin level low and stable.
- Adrenal hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, also contribute to being overweight. The relationship between stress and these hormones determines whether the body burns stored fuel (glucose) or stores it as fat.
- Rising gluten intolerance and food allergies mean many Americans are facing new challenges to weight loss because gluten-free diets are often high in rice—the only grain with a high GI score in its whole-grain form—and overeating high GI foods leads to weight gain.
- Allergies contribute to being overweight by causing allergic cravings or food addiction.
Nicolette Dumke has the answers to all these difficult situations that cause weight loss difficulties. Hormones rule when it comes to weight loss, regardless of whether one is on a gluten-free or food allergy diet. Dumke teaches readers to lose weight successfully and permanently by discarding the faulty assumptions they’ve heard about weight in the past, and by embracing the pursuit of real health and hormonal control to understand how to work with the body to control one’s weight. Reading and following the advice in her new book “Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Weight Loss” is the perfect investment toward making New Year’s weight loss resolutions a reality.
