For some people it may be surprising but there are people who have a problem gaining weight.
I am not talking about anorexia. I am talking about people who try to eat correctly but have difficulty to control their weight.
As more people are realizing how eating meat may be a good thing, and instead of piling potatoes, rice or pasta onto their plates, they use salads. Instead of pastry they reach for a piece of fruit, instead of wine they take a glass of water and all of a sudden the weight starts coming down.
When this happens we feel great but the time comes when we want to maintain the weight we have, or even gain some weight back. Now here comes the problem. How to do this?
Ever increasing numbers of people are asking me this question.
There is a simple answer to this question but unfortunately some people find it to be complicated because there are many variables involved.
Let me start by using the correct diet as an example.
When we eat correctly, our food is mostly animal protein and fats mixed with some fruits. Our genetic code is properly activated, our cells have plenty of active mitochondria and our immune system functions perfectly. Such a body can produce all the energy it requires utilizing fat as a fuel. This means that as long as there is enough fat in your diet, your cells will have enough energy and you will not lose any weight.
Protein provides a similar amount of energy as carbohydrates do, but saturated fat brings more than double the amount of energy to the body. So if you want to gain weight, eat more saturated fat. Eat meat with its fat, do not separate the meat from it.
Many people make the same mistake when changing their diet. They eliminate or drastically reduce carbohydrates from their meals but they do not increase the amount of meat or fat in the portion.
Let us look at it.
You take a chicken leg, add the salad and skip the 3-4 potatoes that you usually consumed with the meal. Well, the potatoes provided more energy (calories) than the piece of chicken you were having. Here you have diminished the amount of calories you were consuming.
You then eliminated the alcohol you drank previously with the meal and had water instead.
Alcohol is full of sugar and that is also an energy that was deducted from your average meal.
You have skipped the dessert and had a fruit. Another loss of energy. When you add to this that your cells have a huge number of mitochondria which will process the fat and turn it into energy, you can understand the reason for your weight loss.
Once you understand this, the solution to gaining weight is simple. Load up on the fat or double up on the animal protein. Do not increase the amount of fruits you eat. They won’t provide you with the energy you need. This is the mistake most people are making. The majority of people grab fruit when they are hungry because they are seeking something raw and healthy.
Well fruit is ok, but it does not have any energy to speak of so do not use it as a food supplement if you want to gain weight. Instead reach for a piece of cheese or a T-bone steak Shove some raw eggs down your throat and flush them down with a full fat yogurt or a glass of fresh full fat milk.
Some people complain how they are constantly hungry after they have decreased the amount of carbohydrates in their diet. This is understandable.
If your body has not already reprogrammed it’s genome and has not reactivated the necessary amount of mitochondria, because dietary glucose is still a part of your diet, your cells cannot produce adequate amounts of energy utilizing the fat alone.
If you have drastically lowered the carbohydrate intake, even if you have increased the protein and fat content in your meal, your cells will be underpowered. They cannot utilize fat because they do not have enough mitochondria so they are glucose dependent and they are waiting for the carbohydrate. This makes you hypoglycemic, lightheaded and weak. If you did not increase the amount of fat or the protein in your food, you will not be depositing triglyceride and no weight gain can be expected.
Here you can see how incorrect is the popular saying; “everything in moderation is good”. No amount of poison can ever be ok, even if it is used in “moderation”.
This is not to say that lowering the amount of carbohydrates in your meals will not have a positive impact on your health. But you do need to be aware that cells hesitate to increase the amount of the mitochondria if glucose is regularly present in the blood. Regular consumption of dietary glucose increases the sugar absorption so strong spikes in glucose blood levels will be present every time you eat dietary carbohydrates and this will interfere with the cellular adjustment of the mitochondria.
This is exactly why so many people have failed in losing weight when they follow any kind of caloric counting diet. It is simply a torture for the body and the mind.
Even after reading my book and following the Self Healer’s Protocol many people decide to have a Skype consultation with me to better understand the principle and they report to me daily, everything they have eaten. This way I can catch their mistakes and correct them. Losing weight becomes easy and no hunger is involved. Since the body becomes adjusted on the genetic level, healing will take place and true health can be achieved.
Once your cells function properly, it is easy to control the weight simply by adjusting how much of the protein and fat you are eating daily. This is easy because you do not experience any hunger or weakness doing it.
Simple isn’t it?????
Love and light.
