accumulation patterns and weight loss
of the most common fat loss questions is “how do I get rid
of my fat just here?” as you grab the area of fat causing
you most concern. The short answer is you cannot reduce a certain
area of body fat by focusing exercise on this area, e.g. doing a
hundred sit ups will not have any more affect on losing fat from
the stomach as it would losing fat from the legs. However, where
you store your fat gives us a vital clue to what foods will more
likely cause this fat storage.
people store their body fat in different areas. It may be seen that
you store your fat on your stomach only, or just below your waist
or maybe all over your body, your hands,face included. Take a look
at yourself, then have a look at the next few people you see and
notice the different ways they store their fat.
general there are four major fat storage patterns in women and three
in men. This is caused by the dominance of the endocrine glands
within the body; Thyroid, adrenal, pituitary or ovaries (women only).
Each person has one gland that is more dominant than the others.
This gland influences the main areas where you store fat
broad patterns of fat storage are unique, see if you can spot someone
who holds their fat mostly on the stomach and hips only, others
who store it all over their body, some just below the waist only
and finally people who store it on their back, chest stomach and
hips. These patterns relate to the dominance of the thyroid, pituitary,
ovaries and adrenals respectively.
has also found that certain foods stimulate these glands, for example
caffeine, fruit, chocolate amongst others stimulates the thyroid
gland. Over time you learn that the foods that stimulate your dominant
gland will produce a temporary uplift in energy. The result is you
learn to crave these foods when you are low on energy to give you
a pick up
Over time relying on your dominating gland can wear it out resulting
in a drop in metabolic rate and subsequent fat accumulation. The
idea is to minimize these foods and replace them with a non dominant
gland stimulating substitute. This will allow the gland a rest and
allow it to recharge over time and thus let the body lose fat.
cause of your cravings
need for you to rely on the foods that stimulate your dominant gland
arises because you are giving inadequate nutrients in the right
amount for your body. The result is inefficient energy production
and the desire to fall back on your favorite foods that will give
you an uplift
explains why when many people cut out cakes, sugars, starches and
caffeine (Thyroid type foods, a common dominance in white western
people) they never stick to it. As many people replace these foods
with other food sources that are not appropriate for their metabolic
type. The result is the body sends out signals for more energy,
this gives the food craving for……….you guessed
it!..... the cakes, sugars, starches or caffeine they cut out. This
opens up a game of will power which will inevitably be won by the
your type before cutting out these foods.
simple solution to avoid the above cycle is to discover your metabolic
type first, then fine tune the meal ratios before minimizing these
glandular foods. The process of eating in accordance with your metabolic
type will almost serve to completely reduce the food craving.
food cravings with an emotional basis can of course be treated with
technique (EFT). In combination, this will relieve the biochemical
and behavioral need for certain foods and thus produce the desired
