Stop Trying to Lose Weight - Lose Something Else (Keto Corner)

(Photo: courtesy of Smash the Scale Facebook Page)



This Keto Corner post has come about as a result of the topics we talk about at the Keto Krunch Club.  Check out our Facebook page for the philosophy and goings on.



People want to lose weight for various reasons.  Most often they want to look good when they stare at the mirror. They want to wear nicer clothes rather than hide under larger sizes. Many want to sit, walk, and exercise comfortably.

I've spoken with numerous folks over the years who want to see the numbers on the scale go down. Their self worth is dictated by the number bouncing back and forth on the scale. But digital scales are now popular so that leaves you with the ugly digits just staring back at you. I like the spring loaded ones that wobble back and forth like a clown face laughing back at you.

The Weight Loss War seems to be a losing battle because of the erroneous information people continue to follow about calories, exercise, and macronutrient misunderstandings. Please don't say cholesterol in front of me. I will tell you that you are living in a fantasy world.

Often when people lose weight, they lose muscle. They may even lose their energy. They may lose their resolve because weight loss is so frustrating.

It's time to forget about weight loss. Do me one favor. Quit the focus on losing weight. It's time to lose the inflammation.

Inflammation is the real reason you can't change your body shape. You want to be slimmer with more muscle tone. You need to be healthy. You want to reduce the inflammation in your body.

One of my mentors mentioned that 1/2 of a person's adipose tissue (body fat) consists of white blood cells. That is inflammation. (I'll bet the other half is mostly trapped toxins.)

We know inflammation is the baseline cause of all disease. (Think cancer, Alzheimer's, heart damage.) Inflammation leads to DNA damage which is the key to premature aging.

If you decide to rid your body of excess inflammation, you may have a better outcome and feel better about yourself.

Why? Because most people attribute weight gain to personal failure. But knowledge of inflammation removes the stigma of failure and replaces it with an inspiration that focuses on real results.

Inflammation is non-negotiable - You're either putting it into your body or you're getting rid of it.

For your homework assignment: Learn about inflammation.
