Back to weight gain causes 6-10
Anemia means that you don't produce enough red blood cells to carry oxygen through
your entire body. This has a HUGE impact on your ability to lose weight and to make
energy because oxygen is perhaps the most critical component of energy production.
Without optimal levels of oxygen, you can't make energy or lose weight efficiently and in
extreme cases of oxygen deprivation you could die. So I think it is critical to check your
red blood cells regularly to make sure you don't have any type of anemia slowing your
metabolism. And if you do have anemia, the good news is that it is one of the easiest and
quickest conditions to correct among all of the potential causes of a slow metabolism that
I have discussed here.
12- Nutrient Deficiency
Your metabolism literally runs off of nutrients. Sure, the thyroid controls the rate of the
metabolism so it is really important. And many other hormones and conditions can affect
the metabolism drastically. But nutrients, along with oxygen, are the basic tools
necessary for a proper working metabolism. Without a healthy thyroid, your metabolism
might operate at a low level, but without the right nutrients your metabolism can't operate
at all! So you get the point- nutrients are very important if you want to lose weight and
keep it off. And the best way to ensure proper nutrients for your metabolism is to test
them and monitor them using my Metabolic Profile.
There are lots of reasons why you should try to avoid excess weight gain; it's
unattractive, it makes you feel bad about yourself and makes you feel bad physically due
to decreased energy. But the most important reason to maintain a healthy body weight is
because excess weight gain is dangerous! Obesity can increase your risk of heart
disease, stroke, dementia, arthritis and more.
