THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE PROGRAMME
Your genetics, hormone levels and gut health all influence:
- The way your body uses the food you eat for energy
- The foods your body thrives on versus those that make you look and feel terrible
- How much weight you gain from eating the same foods as your peers
For example, did you know that the health of your gut and its protective bacteria affects the integrity of your gut wall? When you eat foods your body is intolerant of, you can damage you gut wall – making it ‘leaky’. A leaky gut allows substances that usually stay in your bowels to enter your bloodstream, and this triggers a process called inflammation.
This inflammation can encourage weight gain by increasing the amount of the fat storing hormone, called insulin, which your body makes throughout the day. Appetite signals sent from your gut to the brain (which influences food intake and appetite) can also become distorted, leading to weight gain. It’s a complicated process that still isn’t fully understood, but the research is clear – the gut environment of obese people differs from that of slim people, and inflammation lies at the centre of this. If you remove the food that’s causing the inflammation and correct gut balance, normal metabolism is restored.
So, that’s exactly what we’ll do (and more) over 8 weeks days
You’ll also discover your dietary ‘sweet spot’ – that is the amounts of different foods you can eat and still lose weight (a common problem for dieters is they often don’t eat enough of certain foods like carbs out of fear of weight gain when actually these foods will help stimulate the metabolism).
