You have to be healthy in order to lose weight

"People are literally killing themselves trying to lose weight," claims Dr. Eric Berg, of Alexandria VA. A chiropractor by education and nutritional researcher throughout his career, says that by eating certain foods that support fat burning hormones, weight loss will naturally occur.
If the body is starved of calories and good fats, or filled with artificial foods, and stressed through excessive exercise, the body will not become healthy and lose weight, or at least experience lasting weight loss, and can actually result in a decline in health.
"In fact," says Dr. Berg, "most of the people who come see me are sicker and heavier than they were when they started dieting. They can't sleep, feel tired all the time, retain fluid, have poor hair and skin, digestion troubles and push themselves to exercise into a condition of overstress. One of my clients told me she literally lifted 3 million pounds last year while working out -- and didn't lose a single pound."
It is food that influences hormones, and hormones that dictate your bodily functions. If you are eating foods that break down the hormonal functions of the body, illness and weight gain are the natural result. Conversely, eating foods that support the hormonal system, restores health and allows weight loss.
Dr. Berg's book, The 7 Principles of Fat Burning, states that a person's body shape clearly reveals their hormonal problem and subsequent diet solution which addresses the restoration of health, as the priority. He states that before some of his clients lose any weight, they are reporting increased energy, better sleep, clearer skin, and so on.
"You have to be healthy in order to lose weight," says Dr. Berg. He explains that excess weight is a symptom of ill health and that a body that is stressed, week and malnourished will not drop weight and improve function, especially while under intense physical workouts.
Dr. Berg says, "The majority of my clients are women. They have been told they are overweight because they are lazy. But let me tell you, most of these women are extremely dedicated and put a tremendous amount of time and effort into losing weight. They've been given a bum wrap. They've been told they can have chocolate cake every day and lose weight. These women are hopeful, but they're not stupid. They lose some weight, then stop the program, gain it back and then some, and now additional fatigue and just one more failure."
Dr. Berg has come up with many non-conventional ways of assisting his clients in their battle of the bulge. Although some critics say he is the one who has it backwards with his claims that you need to get healthy in order to lose weight, Dr. Berg holds firm to his theory. He reports having assisted thousands of people all over the country through his The 7 Principles of Fat Burning concepts, restoring fitness and health by educating people on the facts about food and the body. And educates the public at free weekly seminars in Alexandria, VA. He also trains doctors all over the country to do the same and has trained hundreds to date.
