Weight loss is one of the most convoluted subjects on the planet.
There are countless so called “experts” out there all selling the latest diet or exercise program, trying to cash-in on our desire to lose weight and get fit.
The interesting thing is that while the weight loss advice industry has exploded and virtually everyone from the latest diet expert to your aunt Judy has a theory on weight loss, the majority of people in North America and now worldwide are just getting fatter and fatter.
You could blame laziness, a lack of exercise, a lack of proper diet or a lack of willpower to stick to a healthy diet, but what’s the real cause of these things?
Why do we find it so hard to stick to a diet, and why are we always so hungry???
I have studied nutrition and weight loss for over 10 years now and have tried virtually every diet under the sun.
I’ve lost weight while on the various diets, but I’ve always gained it back after completing my diet and feeling hungry for all the different types of foods I’ve “deprived” myself of during my diet plans.
But why do we crave so much food, so many calories and all these foods that we know are “bad” for us?
I believe that Dr. Wallach has the answer to this.
Why We Struggle to Lose Weight
In this video Dr. Wallach explains how our inability to lose weight comes from two main reasons:
Reason # 1 – Mineral Deficiency
Unlike the food that our grandparents ate, most of the food we buy today at restaurants or supermarkets is deficient in various minerals.
When our diet is deficient in minerals we develop an uncontrollable appetite for food, and especially carbohydrates.
Dr. Wallach explains how when farmers want to fatten up their livestock, all the have to do in order to get their cows to eat more food is to make their food deficient in minerals and then provide them with a steady stream of cheap carbohydrates (ie. corn).
When you starve a cow of minerals, it’ll eat and eat and eat and just continue to get fat.
In the livestock industry this is not a problem, as fattening up cows is how the farmers make their money, selling the fattened up beef for more money.
But for us, as humans, being mineral deficient is a huge problem because we can try to eat a “sensible diet”, but if our diet is lacking in the proper minerals we WILL have an uncontrollable urge to eat more food – especially carbohydrates.
Reason # 2 – Too Much Carbohydrates
This will probably be of no surprise to most people.
As a society we have become completely addicted to and dependent on cheap carbohydrates.
Bread, white pasta, white rice, corn, sugar, donuts, the latest Starbucks creation, you name it… we’re addicted to carbs.
Anyone who has gone on any diet knows this.
We all know we need to cut these crappy, nutrient deficient carbs from our diets and incorporate more healthy proteins and fats, so why is it so hard to follow through on this?
Well, the reason is because our food is mineral deficient, and so we CRAVE carbs uncontrollably.
So yes, you COULD blame carbohydrates for the fact that you’re eating too many calories every day and STILL feeling hungry, but that isn’t going to help you.
What you need to do is you need to make sure your body is getting ALL the vitamins and minerals that it needs every single day, and THEN you can slowly start cutting out carbohydrates out of your diet without going insane.
Easiest Way to Ensure You Are NOT Mineral Deficient
When Dr. Wallach concluded his research and began lecturing on this topic of us being mineral deficient, many people wanted to know how the heck do we make sure we get all of our vitamins and minerals?
Yes there are many different multi-vitamins and multi-mineral products on the market, but you would have to combine dozens of different pills together on a daily basis to get everything that you need, and even then you’d have to ensure that all of the vitamins and minerals that you need are all in the right proportions for your body and that they’re not coming from synthetic sources.
So to address this issue, Dr. Wallach formulated is own multi-vitamin / multi-mineral product line which contains ALL 90 of the essential minerals and vitamins that your body needs.
He called this line of products 90 For Life, and it makes the process of getting all of your minerals simple and convenient.
Yes you could read his books, and figure out the exact amounts of each mineral and vitamin that you need and then try to create your own set of supplements, but it’s not easy to find the right combination of supplements which gives you EVERYTHING that you need.
Most multi-vitamin/multi-mineral products out here don’t even have 20% of what you need.
This is why I’ve chosen to use Dr. Wallach’s 90 For Life product to make sure I’m getting all of my nutritional needs met for my upcoming weight loss program.
If you’re looking to lose weight, I’d recommend ordering a starter pack and supplementing whatever diet and/or exercise program you’re going to be following with these products. It will help you to get all the nutrients you need so that you’re not the carb-rich junk foods that you know aren’t good for you.
