Diets have become a popular way to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. People have been trying different diets for years, from low-fat to low carb to vegan, to keto. However, studies have shown that most diets ultimately fail in the long run. While it is commonly believed that weight gain is solely due to excess calories and a lack of exercise, recent research suggests that toxins, specifically obesogens, may be a significant contributor to obesity and weight gain.
Obesogens are chemicals found in everyday products such as plastics, pesticides, and household cleaners that disrupt hormones and metabolic processes in the body. These chemicals can promote weight gain by altering metabolic set-points and disrupting appetite controls. A study conducted by the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, found that exposure to obesogens during fetal development or later in life can program the body to store fat, leading to obesity in adulthood.
The impact of obesogens on weight loss was exemplified in a study conducted on contestants from the popular television program ‘The Biggest Loser.’ After the competition, where contestants underwent strict diet and exercise routines to lose weight, their metabolisms had dramatically slowed down, meaning their bodies stopped burning enough calories to maintain a thinner size. This resulted in most of them regaining much of the original weight back, and some are even heavier today than when they started the competition. The contestants’ struggle with constant food cravings could be explained by the hormone leptin, an appetite stimulator, whose levels drift up as weight is regained, triggering the urge to eat.
While the study of ‘The Biggest Loser’ contestants found that the challenge of losing weight and keeping it off is about human biology, not a lack of willpower, it failed to consider the role of obesogens. The experts in metabolism conducting the study did not communicate with the cell biologists studying obesogens, even though the findings of their studies may be compatible and reconcilable.
Toxins are stored in fat cells in the body, and no diet has ever been shown to remove toxins from the body. This means that even if you manage to lose weight on a diet, the toxins will remain in your body, which can make it more difficult to maintain the weight loss. Furthermore, the toxins can contribute to a variety of health problems (Metabolic Syndrome) such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular disease.
The R2M protocol, using Intermittent Nutritional Fasting and Protein Pacing, produced 12 times faster weight loss while at the same time showing dramatic reductions in weight, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and triglycerides. These factors contribute to being metabolically unhealthy, and no diet has ever shown these kinds of scientific results. The only peer-reviewed studies published in the Nutrition Journal and the Obesity Journal were conducted by Dr. Paul Arciero. The studies showed a dramatic reduction in all five of the factors that cause people to be classified as Metabolically Unhealthy.
Intermittent nutritional Fasting (not intermittent fasting) involves restricting food intake but not reducing nutritional intake. This approach helps to reduce insulin levels and stimulate fat burning. Protein pacing involves consuming small, frequent meals that contain protein. This approach helps to maintain muscle mass and keep you feeling full, which can help to reduce cravings.
Natural detoxification is the most effective weight loss (Proven in the peer-reviewed studies) approach based on ridding the body of obesogens. Detoxification involves the elimination of toxins from the body through the liver, kidneys, and other elimination pathways.
In conclusion, the failure of diets in the long run is not simply due to a lack of willpower or discipline. The role of obesogens plays a huge role in preventing diets to work in the long run. R2M is scientifically proven to work.
