While it’s true that most individuals with weight issues struggle with portion control, sugary foods, and low-fat fantasies, many are unaware of the health consequences most of these foods possess. Hidden throughout many popular products, including sauces, condiments, beverages, and processed goods, lurk a plethora of allergy triggers. In fact, many of these negative bodily responses take place long after we consume a meal. Once food enters the stomach and begins to digest, known antibodies begin creating inflammation, which can evolve into swelling, hormone imbalances, and more importantly, extra pounds.
But food reactions are nothing new in the world of medicine, and science is now revealing the hidden effects surrounding chronic disease. For example, the excess carbohydrates observed in many unhealthy diets, which tend to ferment in the intestines and cause abnormal bloating and gas, are just some of the more common symptoms associated with food allergies.
However, hope does exist. With the right supplements, nutrient plan, and testing, such as the ALCAT Test Diet Therapy, individuals can follow a simple, yet effective elimination diet. According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Bariatric Medicine, eighty percent of the ALCAT group lowered their body fat and seventy-eight percent saw an improvement in overall body composition.
At our center, patients are able to finally lose the weight through advanced testing, keep it off, and reduce inflammation, in addition to eating foods that improve well-being, taste delicious, and prevent fatigue.
