WHY IS IT SO HARD TO LOSE WEIGHT ?
HOW IS OUR DIET PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
Many people want to go on a diet for obvious reasons. The problem is biologically everyone's body is very similar, but scientifically each body is unique and there is no one size fits all program that works for everyone. Until we collect the scientific data no one can look at an individual and see how their body is running and it is virtually impossible to recommend a diet.
HOW DOES OUR DIET PROGRAM WORK?
Customers often ask what we do different in weight loss, In a word, Everything. Our weight loss program is more like science class than a weight loss program. The first thing people need to know before attempting a diet is what you are about to put your body through is somewhat traumatic. Your body is one of the most complex machines ever designed and its ability to adapt to changing conditions is simply astounding. Few people attempting a diet realize that one of the biggest consumers of calories in your body is your brain and depriving it of essential nutrients by going on a 1,000 calorie diet is unsafe or may be dangerous. The healthy way to diet is to build a bigger engine or raise your metabolic rate to a normal level while you attempt to deprive your body of calories. When you deprive the brain of essential nutrients all sorts of adverse effects may happen from low or no energy to your hair falling out, remember your brain's job is to keep you alive and it will adjust to the circumstances to protect itself.
The first big hurdle to overcome when starting a diet is LEPTIN, the chemical in you're body that is produced to remind you when you are hungry and that you should eat. Leptin cannot be overcome or beaten with sheer will power. It is your bodies emergency alert system and will increase in intensity if you ignore it.
The next big hurdle is controlling your cortisol which is another chemical in your body that has some direct control over your metabolic rate. People under stress often "stress eat". The stress will cause your body to produce more cortisol slowing down your metabolic rate and leptin will make you hungry causing a huge calorie indifference and the pounds of extra weight will pile on quickly.
At Club Recharge we focus on the science. Our goal is to re-train the body and make it feel safe so that it doesn't try to protect you by storing excess calories. We help you achieve this by reducing stress levels using some of the relaxing therapies available at the club and we also help you sleep better with other therapies.
The next thing we do differently at Club Recharge is we throw out the scale. Why would we throw out the scale in a weight loss program you ask? Because your weight is not your intended goal and fat loss is. Your intended goal is to look in the mirror and feel better about yourself from the reflection the mirror gives back. Take it from a person that has helped hundreds of people lose weight. My customers get less excited about what the scale says they weigh and more excited when they fit into a size 5 pair of jeans. If you have ever known someone that has lost weight and can now fit into off the rack clothes you'll understand. That look on their face and their overall demeanor could care less about what the scale claims they weigh, neither do we.
The American Medical Association did a study on the 10 most popular diet plans on the market and concluded the 8 out of 10 did not supply your body with enough nutrients to support vital brain function. For a copy of the study you can contact CLUB RECHARGE or log onto the American Medical Associations website to review the study.
In a general sense all diet programs work with some degree of effect once your body is healthy enough to survive while you deprive it of calories. Club Recharge does not require you to use our diet program. As long as your body is ready to diet you are free to use any available diet program you wish and Club Recharge can just monitor the results to keep you on track.
WHY SCALES DON'T MATTER!
Why scales don't matter. Your body is made up of approximately 60% water, so a 200lb person is made up of approximately 120lbs of water. So if you start a diet and lose 5 lbs according to the scale how do you know if you lost fat or are just dehydrated. You don't because the typical bathroom scale doesn't know and the home versions of body composition scales are not very accurate that is why they are $100 and not $10,000 like the one at Club Recharge. Besides that, obsessing about a number on a scale will increase your cortisol levels every time you step on your scale and the number is not less than yesterday which in-turn will slow your metabolic rate which will make it harder to lose weight. Our advice to anyone starting a diet is simply throw out the scale and get yourself a $1 paper tape measure that you can wrap around your different body parts once every other week. Twice a month is all you need.
LASTLY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY!
DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT try to lose weight too quickly. Here is why. The TV show "The Biggest Loser" had 14 successful seasons showing individuals how to lose weight. Don't get me wrong they inspired millions of people to lose weight, which by itself is absolutely great but scientifically not the best way to lose weight. Contestants were losing 10-13 pounds in a week which looked great to the audience, but what was not understood was their bodies were going to panic. 13 out of the 14 winners now weigh more than they did before the show, through no fault of their own. Their body was terrified and when they began burning huge amounts of calories with their last chance workouts and depriving their bodies of calories simultaneously, they caused their bodies to defend itself. These contestants metabolic rates dropped through the floor when their bodies tried to protect itself by putting the weight back on. They now have to start all over and slowly build up their metabolic rates before they can lose the weight again.
Science now understands a great deal more about fat cells than it did 20 years ago. What medicine thought fat cells roles were was simply a storage organ for excess calories. They now understand that they play a far bigger role in your body than just storage.
