Peter Greenlaw, a renowned health, and wellness expert, recently appeared on the television show Windy City to discuss his best-selling book, “Why Diets are Failing Us”. In his book, Greenlaw challenges the conventional wisdom that weight gain is simply a matter of consuming too many calories, and instead suggests that toxins in our environment are the real culprit behind our expanding waistlines.
During his appearance on Windy City, Greenlaw explained that the human body is designed to store toxins in fat cells as a way to protect our vital organs. However, when we are exposed to an excessive amount of toxins, our body can’t keep up with the demand for fat cells, leading to weight gain.
Greenlaw goes on to suggest that traditional diets that focus solely on reducing calorie intake can actually be harmful to our health, as they often lead to a decrease in important nutrients and an increase in toxins. Instead, he advocates for a “toxin-free” approach to weight loss that focuses on eliminating harmful toxins from our environment and diet.
Note: Several recent published peer-reviewed studies by the New England Journal of Medicine, The Journal of the American Medical Association are proving that diets are really not making much of a dent in the Obesity crisis in this country. It is now estimated that 50% of the U.S. is Obese. And, yet we keep sticking with outdated approaches like calories in and calories out. They just are not working period.
One of the key strategies Greenlaw recommends for reducing toxins is to follow the peer-reviewed studies of Dr. Paul Arciero whose two new studies in the Nutrition Journal and the Obesity Journal showed a significant reduction in toxins from the participants in the studies.
The studies used the R2M protocol which is based on Intermittent Nutritional Fasting™ (not Intermittent Fasting which has now been proven in peer-reviewed studies to be no more effective than any calorie lowering diet) and Protein Pacing®. The two studies showed a safe weight loss 12 times faster than any diet approach ever studied. At the same time participants in the studies gained on average 6% lean muscle mass. The other never seen before result of the studies was the dramatic lowering of not just weight but high blood sugar, high blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, and reduction of 33% of visceral fat, along with 25% lower inflammation.
In addition to dietary changes, Greenlaw also stresses the importance of reducing our exposure to environmental toxins. This can include avoiding household cleaners and personal care products that contain harmful chemicals, as well as reducing our reliance on plastics and other synthetic materials.
While Greenlaw’s message may seem radical to some, it is actually based on sound scientific principles proven in these new peer-reviewed studies by Dr. Arciero. The human body is constantly exposed to a wide range of toxins, including pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial chemicals, many of which have been linked to obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions.
By focusing on reducing our exposure to these toxins, we can not only support healthy weight loss, but also improve our overall health and wellbeing. As Greenlaw explains, “When we focus on eliminating toxins from our environment and diet, we are not only helping ourselves, but we are also creating a healthier world for future generations.”
Greenlaw’s appearance on Windy City has sparked a renewed interest in his message and has helped to raise awareness about the importance of reducing toxins in our environment and diet. His book, “Why Diets are Failing Us”, has become a best-seller, inspiring countless individuals to take a more holistic approach to weight loss and health.
In conclusion, Peter Greenlaw’s appearance on Windy City and his book, “Why Diets are Failing Us”, offer a compelling argument for why toxins, not calories, are the real enemy when it comes to weight gain and poor health. By focusing on reducing our exposure to harmful toxins and adopting a toxin-free approach to weight loss, we can not only achieve our weight loss goals but also improve our overall health and wellbeing. Greenlaw’s message is an important reminder that our health is intimately tied to the health of our environment, and that we all have a responsibility to take care of both.
