Why can’t I lose weight?

Hi Dr. Hotze, I’m 45 years old, and I can’t lose all this extra weight I have gained over the past few years. I’ve tried so many different diets, but none seem to stick. I do exercise sometimes, but it isn’t enough. I think I eat pretty healthily, but I am sure there is room for improvement. What should I do? Are there vitamins that can help with weight loss? – Tanya S.

Thank you for your question, Tanya. Weight loss is a very common concern among men and women today. I know this can be frustrating, but don’t lose hope. There are natural solutions that can help you.

First, there are many causes of weight gain, and here are a few of the most common cause we see at my wellness center that we treat naturally:

Hypothyroidism is a common cause of weight gain, because it regulates your metabolism and energy production. With low thyroid function, your metabolism slows down, and you don’t generate as much heat or use as many calories. Excess fluid retention can often be attributed to poor circulation caused by low thyroid function, as well. The solution is to optimize your thyroid function with bioidentical compounded T3 and T4 thyroid hormones.

Hormone Imbalance can lead to weight gain. For instance, a progesterone deficiency in women leads to a condition called estrogen dominance which slows your metabolism and causes weight gain. Supplementing with bioidentical progesterone will balance the estrogen, thereby eliminating the estrogen dominance. Progesterone promotes the assimilation of the thyroid hormone into your cells, increasing your metabolism, and relieving fluid retention. Low testosterone can lead to weight gain in men.

Candida, or yeast overgrowth, can cause bloating and weight gain. Yeast feeds on sugar and can overgrow in the large intestine, displacing the normal healthy bacteria of the gut. It is important to avoid sugar and do a Candida-free diet to eliminate the yeast.

Unhealthy Eating and Inactive Lifestyle: It’s well known that fast food is not healthy for you and will easily add those extra pounds to your waistline. Fast food is high in fat, sugar and calories, as well as chemical preservatives. Include organic fruits and vegetables in your daily eating plan, as well as good fats, nuts and lean meats. Regular physical activity will help you maintain your ideal body weight by burning off calories for energy.

Often when it is hard to lose those extra pounds, it just takes the proper nutrients and guidance to help you get on the right track to weight loss. My 28-Day Slim Down Kit  at Physicians Preference Vitamins is the perfect solution to help you jump-start your weight loss journey.
