Obesity is an epidemic in U.S. Statistics show that 70% of Americans are considered overweight or obese, and 38% are considered obese or extremely obese.
Eating more and exercising less are the common explanations for the increase in obesity rates, but it’s not the complete picture. There are other important factors to consider:
Americans are overfed and undernourished, with over 30% lacking in nutrients like magnesium, vit. C, vit. E, vit. A. Over 80%of Americans have low vit. D levels. Most people are deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids, which play an important role in lowering inflammation in the body.
Dysbiosis or Gut Microbe Imbalances
Bacteria in the gut, which outnumber our human cells 10 to 1, are known to have a profound effect on weight and metabolism. Depending on the type of bacteria, it can lead to weight gain or loss.
Studies have shown that taking the gut bacteria from a thin mouse and putting it into a fat mouse can cause the fat mouse to lose a lot of weight without changing its diet.
Inflammation in the small intestine can lead to a leaky gut, and that, in turn, can be caused by GI infections, inflammatory foods, toxins, stress, medications, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and other factors.
Blood Sugar Dysregulation
