A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON WEIGHT LOSS: RESET YOUR PHYSIOLOGY

I am heading to out Limitless Fly-In this week. One of my favorite things is when we get to hear from the experts, scientists, and doctors affirming what we know about how effective our products are. We not only have testimonials, but we also have scientific studies behind every product!

This is Dr. Jon Wisco – and I’m sharing his post today – he is able to tell us the really smart things in normal, everyday language! What a gift.


A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON WEIGHT LOSS: RESET YOUR PHYSIOLOGY

Guest Post by Dr. Jon Wisco, Ph.D., Anatomy and Neurobiology
Professor, Brigham Young University and University of Utah School of Medicine

Fat is good. We need fat.

The most important system in our body (okay, I’m biased, I’m a neuroscientist) – our nervous system – is comprised of nearly 60 percent fat! Without a healthy amount of fat, our nervous system would not functional properly. Our endocrine system needs fat in order to effectively create one of the most important hormones in the body – progesterone. This hormone is the precursor for testosterone and estrogen, two of the sex hormones that helps us maintain physical fitness and mental alertness. Just two examples of why fat is an important tissue in our bodies.

However, too much fat is bad. The risk for coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, some cancers, Type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, liver disease, asthma, and some mental disorders1 increases with greater Body Mass Index (BMI) and body fat percentage.

And, not enough fat is bad. The risk for hypotension, heart failure, osteoporosis, muscle weakness and atrophy, and kidney failure2increases with lower BMI and body fat percentage. The bottom line: The body needs just enough fat – not too much, not too little – for normal metabolism.

The body’s three sources of energy- carbohydrates, fat and muscle

Of these macronutrients, the body prefers carbs because it can easily metabolize it into glucose, and through a number of biochemical reactions, the principal energy molecule, adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Fat and muscle metabolism also ultimately yield ATP, but the biochemical reactions are more involved and not as quick as carbohydrate metabolism.

Although carbs are metabolized quickly, they are not as powerful of an energy source as fat. The body is smart: If it has a sufficient source of carbs, it will choose to burn that; otherwise, it will burn fat, and then as a last resort, muscle. If the body has an abundant source of carbs, it will metabolize what it needs, then store the rest as – you guessed it – fat. Why not? The body knows it can receive a larger amount of energy per fat molecule than per carbohydrate molecule. Thus, if the body encounters acute, or stressful, metabolic conditions, it will store some carbohydrates as fat. If the body has consistent physical activity, it will properly balance the carbohydrate, fat, and muscle metabolism to maintain a healthy physical state.

Constant fat storage?

The problem in our American society and culture is that we have a diet consisting of an overabundance of carbs, and a lifestyle with minimal physical activity. So, generally speaking, our bodies are constantly storing fat. In addition, carb metabolism activates the insulin/glucagon hormone pathways, which, when overactive and unchecked can lead to unwanted weight gain, insulin resistance, and the inability to metabolize carbs and maintain the normal carb, fat, and muscle metabolism homeostasis. Ultimately, the result is increased fat storage, increased stress, and decreased physical health in the form of oxidative stress and inflammatory diseases such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and many neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia.

Weight loss for health

With that brief introduction to the importance of carbohydrate, fat, and muscle metabolism, it is appropriate to ask where weight loss fits into all of this. Our societal and cultural fixation with weight loss is generally centered around body image, but the importance of weight loss should extend to good physical and physiological health. Again, our bodies are smart: If we subject them to a state of oxidative stress or inflammation (both of these occur when carbohydrate intake is too high, insulin levels spike, and the body converts carbohydrates as fat), then our bodies will “reset” its physiological baseline to minimize the stress and inflammation as much as possible. Part of that reset is storing excess fat to deal with anticipated needs for energy metabolism. Therefore, an approach to weight loss focusing on body image without resetting the body’s physiology only adds more stress and encourages the body to store more fat. This is why crash diets or water pill diets not only don’t work, but are counter-productive to the ultimate goal of restoring the body to a healthy weight.

Resetting the body to its intended, healthy weight is difficult work. The body will resist the initial stress of reducing weight.  A healthy approach to resetting the body’s physiology is to engage in moderate to vigorous physical activity (minimizing risk of injury) while at the same time modifying diet to shift the body’s metabolism from relying solely on carbohydrates to utilizing fat. Muscles love to use the fatty acids metabolized from adipose tissue! We can take advantage of that physiological phenomenon by simply shifting a diet to consist of more fat and protein, and less carbs. Yes, you have to eat fat to lost fat. Exercise is important because it increases the activity of the largest metabolic organ in the body – your muscles.  Yes, gaining muscle mass speeds up fat metabolism.

How can Limitless Worldwide products help with weight loss?

The products included in the Shape Your Body Pak, as diet supplements, are formulated in just the right chemistry to minimize oxidative stress and inflammation, and maximize satiety, and the development of important metabolic hormones (namely human growth hormone, hGH) to promote an increase of muscle mass and healthy metabolism.  The products Thrive, Charge, and Lunagen, found in the pak are formulated to help reset the body’s physiology to encourage healthy, not body image focused- weight loss.

Does someone absolutely need Shape Your Body to lose weight?

Of course not. But it REALLY helps. To illustrate, I love sports drinks. They are an excellent source of carbs and ions when the body is in a high metabolic state. But, sports drinks are nothing more than a source of excess carbs when the body is at rest. I reduced my intake of 2-3 sports drinks per day (approximately 36 g of sugar per bottle!) to only one sports drink per week. Without even exercising, I dropped 8 lbs in one week. By adding a modest 2-3 sessions of 20 minutes of moderate exercise in a week, I lost an additional 7 lbs over the course of several months.

I maintained that weight loss for several years until I discovered Thrive. After taking Thrive, I dropped an additional 5 lbs. over the course of a few weeks. I lost an additional 5 lbs. after starting a vigorous exercise program. The only reason I probably didn’t lose more is because I started adding muscle mass, which is starting to replace my fat mass.  I expect in another year that I’ll be back to just above my high school weight because I started using Charge.

I think that’s it for now. In future blog posts I can go into more detail on aspects of this overview. For now, I hope you enjoy resetting your physiology!

What is hGH and why do I need it? ( “Just the facts, ma’am”)

Human growth hormone (hGH) is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the pituitary gland. … HGH helps to maintain, build, and repair healthy tissue in the brain and other organs. This hormone can help to speed up healing after an injury and repair muscle tissue after exercise. ~ Healthline.com

Watch this short video to learn more about hGH.


Dr. Ronald Klatz, President of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine says:

“HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is the ultimate anti-aging therapy. The rejuvenating effects of growth hormone are global, acting on both mind and body, anatomy and physiology, form and function.

Growth Hormone affects almost every cell in the body; rejuvenating the skin and bones, regenerating the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys, bringing organ and tissue function back to youthful levels.

By replenishing your supply of growth hormone, you can recover your vigor, health, looks, and sexuality.

For the first time in human history, we can intervene in the aging process, restore many aspects of youth, resist disease, substantially improve the quality of life, perhaps extend the lifespan itself. The ‘Fountain of Youth’ lies within the cells of each of us. All you need to do is release it.

It is now possible to reverse the effects of aging 10-20 years. And whereas aging used to be considered a fact of life, the medical community now considers it a degenerative disease that can be treated.”

Thrive hGH DOES NOT contain Human Growth Hormone. Thrive hGH is a scientifically-formulated combination of amino acids and nutrients, which nourish your pituitary gland and increase the release of your own natural hGH.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial Thrive hGH was shown to cause an 8-fold increase in bioactive, serum (blood) growth hormone levels.* The research was conducted at a prestigious university and caused a measurable increase in HGH levels not just in young, athletic males, but in men and women, young and old.

Thrive hGH helps your body safely
and naturally restore hGH levels.

Okay – enough science and facts – they are great to know, but the true results show up in the stories. We have hundreds of them. Men and Women who have “gotten their lives back” when this supplement put their autoimmune disease in remission, helped them be able to walk more comfortably because their joints don’t hurt anymore, or those that have been able to reduce their reliance on prescription drugs, or have lost anywhere from 5 to 105 lbs – easily and safely.

We cannot make medical claims, but we have the stories! Check out our Limitless Worldwide Success Stories page and read for yourself!

Well, what about me? What’s my story? I have lost weight and kept it off, have decreased my thyroid medication, have as much energy as I did 20 years ago, no joint pain, and most remarkably – my latest bone density scan showed major improvement in osteoporosis and osteopenia – in fact, I no longer have either condition! And well, I’m just excited to be enjoying life. I am living limitless – and plan to “be my best at every age!”

Trend Your Limitless

Not a gym person? That’s ok. As long as you can spare 10 minutes, you’re on your way to living longer!
Dr. Bill Kraus of Duke University School of Medicine and his team discussed that every little movement counts. New studies have found that movement in even shorter stretches can lead to a healthier life. If you’re up and moving, you are less likely to die over the next 6-7 years than those who are sitting on the couch!
“The point is getting enough movement in the day. You can do it in long bouts of lower intensity or shorter bouts in higher intensity,” shared Dr. Kraus. Most guidelines recommend that people get 2.5 hours of exercise per week. You can break the 2.5 hours into 10-minute segments… that way, you’re achieving the recommended hours at your pace!
Have you seen those “helpful” signs near elevators that suggest you take the stairs instead? Or have you thought about parking further at the grocery store parking lot to get extra steps in? Little decisions like that can help towards those 10-minute segments!
It’s never too late to start and we have Limitless products to help support this new movement – you just have to pick a pak and move!

Live your Best Life

untitled-designOprah said it first – but what does this mean to you?

To me, at my age and stage in life, it means to do everything I can to remain mentally sharp, physically active, emotionally stable, and spiritually alive.

I have a beautiful, extended family that is the world to me. I AM enjoying doing things with them, coloring, laughing, cooking, going to shows, spending time at the lake, being present in their lives and their world.

It’s important to me to take care of my body and my mind so I can do these activities for years to come. It’s all about Healthspan – the number of years of our Lifespan that we are healthy.

I exercise, I take supplements that turn back the clock of aging, that improve my skin and hair, that help me maintain lean muscle, that keep my joints flexible and strong, that help me keep my weight in check, nourish my pituitary and thyroid, build my bones. And an amazing income that is my very own “social security” in my life!

If you are not living YOUR best life, perhaps I can help? I’d love to chat with you. You deserve to Live Life Limitless!
