Obesity is a nutritional deficiency disease and at least 60% of Americans are overweight. A lack of micronutrients causes a raging hunger message to be sent out causing you to eat anything in sight, but it is impossible to satisfy food cravings with food that lacks the missing nutrition. A healthy body is naturally lean and muscular.
ShopFreeMart products will help satisfy food cravings and help you lose weight by providing the missing nutrients that keep you thin and healthy.
Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health.
Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980. In 2008, 1.5 billion adults, 20 and older, were overweight. Of these over 200 million men and nearly 300 million women were obese.
Nearly 43 million children under the age of five were overweight in 2010.
65% of the world’s population lives in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
For most people, overweight and obesity are caused by not having energy balance. Weight is balanced by the amount of energy or calories you get from food and drinks (this is called energy IN) equaling the energy your body uses for things like breathing, digesting, and being physically active (this is called energy OUT).
Sometimes hormone problems cause overweight and obesity. These problems include:
It is estimated that conservatively 80% of the population suffers from an Underactive Thyroid (hypothyroidism): This is a condition in which the thyroid gland doesn’t make enough thyroid hormone. Lack of thyroid hormone will slow down your metabolism and cause weight gain. You’ll also feel tired and weak. ShopFreeMart Pure Copper Concentrate supports a healthy thyroid, which can result in increased metabolism and weight loss.
Also necessary for a healthy thyroid is Iodine. Get some cheap rust colored Betadine or Provodine or the kind that your veterinary uses on animals. Apply some to the bottoms of your feet or inner thighs before going to bed. By morning it should have all soaked in. Keep doing this until it stops soaking in and you will have plenty of iodine for a while. Reapply periodically to see if you still have plenty. With copper and iodine levels at normal, your thyroid has a good chance of working normally once again.
Cushing’s syndrome: This is a condition in which the body’s adrenal glands make too much of the hormone cortisol. Cushing’s syndrome also can happen when people take high levels of medicines such as prednisone for long periods of time. People with Cushing’s syndrome gain weight, have upper-body obesity, a rounded face, fat around the neck, and thin arms and legs. ShopFreeMart Vitalize has been proven in clinical studies to reduce cortisol and help balance other hormones as well.
At the time I first started taking ShopFreeMart products product, I was under a lot of stress and was putting on belly fat at an alarming rate due to high levels of cortisol. Within one week of taking all of the ShopFreeMart products, my cortisol levels were non-existent and I had already lost 3 inches off my waistline. From that time my digestion has improved, my stress levels are very low and my belly has continued to reduce in size.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS): This is a condition that affects about 5 to 10 percent of women of childbearing age. Women with PCOS often are obese, have excess hair growth, and have reproductive and other health problems due to high levels of hormones called androgens. Again, the nutrients in ShopFreeMart Vitalize and PureGold may help to balance all of the hormones.
Medicines: Certain medicines such as corticosteroids (for example, prednisone), antidepressants (for example, Elavil®), and medicines for seizures (for example, Neurontin®) may cause you to gain weight. These medicines can slow the rate at which your body burns calories, increase your appetite, or cause your body to hold on to extra water, all of which can lead to weight gain. Proper diet and nutritional support can help most people come off of their medications and allow the body to heal itself.
Emotional Factors: Some people eat more than usual when they are bored, angry, or stressed. Over time, overeating will lead to weight gain and may cause overweight or obesity. ShopFreeMart Vitalize and Sugar-D may help with stress and stop the food cravings that cause people to overeat.
Smoking: Some people gain weight when they stop smoking. One reason is that food often tastes and smells better. Another reason is because nicotine raises the rate at which your body burns calories, so you burn fewer calories when you stop smoking. However, smoking is a serious health risk, and quitting is more important than possible weight gain. Tobacco quickly burns up many minerals and B Vitamins in the body. ShopFreeMart PureGold, Pure Copper Concentrate and Vitalize may help to reduce the desire for tobacco. Eating raw nuts, with the exception of peanuts, may also help reduce the desire to smoke.
As you get older, you tend to lose muscle, especially if you’re less active. Muscle loss can slow down the rate at which your body burns calories. If you don’t reduce your calorie intake, as you get older you may gain weight. Middle age weight gain in women is mainly due to aging and lifestyle, but menopause also plays a role. Many women gain around 5 pounds during menopause and have more fat around the waist than they did before. Taking ShopFreeMart products accompanied by exercise can help increase muscle mass, which will greatly increase metabolism and weight loss.
Studies show that the less people sleep, the more likely they are to be overweight or obese. People who report sleeping 5 hours a night, for example, are much more likely to become obese compared to people who sleep 7-8 hours a night.
People who sleep fewer hours also seem to prefer eating foods that are higher in calories and carbohydrates, which can lead to overeating, weight gain, and obesity over time. Hormones that are released during sleep control appetite and the body’s use of energy. For example, insulin controls the rise and fall of blood sugar levels during sleep. People who don’t get enough sleep have insulin and blood sugar levels that are similar to those in people who are likely to have diabetes.
Also, people who don’t get enough sleep on a regular have higher levels of a hormone called ghrelin (which causes hunger) and low levels of a hormone called leptin, which helps to curb hunger.
People who are inactive are more likely to gain weight because they don’t burn up the calories that they take in from food and drinks. An inactive lifestyle also raises your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, colon cancer, and other health problems.
Americans are surrounded by huge food portions in restaurants, fast food places, gas stations, movie theaters, supermarkets, and even at home. Some of these meals and snacks can feed two or more people. Eating large portions means too much energy IN. Over time, this will cause weight gain if it isn’t balanced with physical activity.
Lack of access to healthy foods: Some people don’t live in neighborhoods that have supermarkets that sell healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables and if they do, these items are often too costly.
Food advertising: Americans are surrounded by ads from food companies. Often children are the targets of advertising for high-calorie, high-fat snacks and sugary drinks. The goal of these ads is to sway people to buy these high-calorie foods, and often they do.
Incorrect breathing: You can burn more calories sitting on the couch with 5 minutes of correct breathing exercises than you can in a 5-mile run or half hour workout at the gym. Studies done at the University of Utah proved that up to 7,000 calories could be burned over a 24-hour period resulting from one 5-minute workout combined with a particular breathing method. ShopFreeMart members can now learn how to breathe correctly in order to lose weight quickly and safely. (See Breathing Exercises)
Undernourished: When the body is lacking minerals, it sends out a hunger signal, hoping that you will eat something containing the minerals that are lacking. The craving for food will never go away until you supply the missing minerals, no matter how much you eat. This is the biggest factor in weight gain.
Taking ShopFreeMart Sugar-D and D-Cal Boron, Pure Copper Concentrate and Pure Mag Concentrate can supply missing nutritients that result in food cravings. These products provide nutrients known to strengthen the thyroid and balance your hormones, which is a major factor in weight loss.
Dehydration is also a major cause of food cravings. Actually the body is craving water, but many people are confused as to what their bodies are needing. Hydration Drops will quench your thirst better than any liquid we have found and it will also hydrate the cells better, and that is why we should be drinking liquids is for hydration.
Eat more greens and raw foods. Get rid of sugar, artificial sweeteners, all flour and grain products, dairy products and hydrogenated fats. Then do one to three, 5-minute workouts combined with the right breathing exercises daily and watch the weight fly off of you!
Note: You are more likely to contract Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes and virtually every other disease if you are Overweight. And here is something you probably didn’t know: Overweight and obesity are linked to more deaths worldwide than underweight.
Whenever possible, all of the ShopFreeMart products should be consumed on a fairly regular basis as we have targeted the most common nutrients found to be lacking in the standard American diet. These nutrients play a major role in metabolism, helping the body get rid of excess fat and preventing obesity.
ShopFreeMart Sugar-D may help to curb appetite and Pure Copper Concentrate is an important nutrient for the thyroid to increase metabolism, which translates to fat burn. ShopFreeMart Immunize provides minerals that may prevent craving and will increase assimilation of all other foods and supplements.
