Are Toxins Making You Fat?

by Dr. Stephen Costantino

Did you know that just 50 years ago, the average person weighed 25 pounds less than they do today? And, with so many struggling to lose and keep weight off, why are we heavier now? Are we consuming more calories? Is it genetics? Stress? Did you ever consider that, in fact, it might not be your fault at all? Perhaps we are fatter because our bodies are overburdened with an accumulation of toxins, which are making us fat … and sick.

What are the potential causes?
Now more than ever, our food is flooded with artificial dyes, pesticides, saturated fats, processed sugars, preservatives and hormones. Many over-the-counter and prescription drugs further create a toxic density in our bodies that contributes to people being overweight. These toxins encourage a slower metabolism, decrease your body’s ability to burn fat, slow down the time it takes you to feel full and trap fat in your body. These toxic substances or “fat magnets” actively cultivate disease in your body, drain your energy and encourage food patterns that perpetuate making you fatter! The medical term for this condition is body burden.

How do we combat it?
When toxins enter your body, they are in a fat-soluble state. In order for them to exit your body, your liver must convert them from fat soluble to water soluble so the waste can be removed though normal elimination methods – e.g., urine, sweat, excrement, breath. If these toxins are not converted, they will travel through the body and get trapped in cells. By cleansing the liver with the right combination of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fibers and proteins, your liver is encouraged to convert fat-soluble toxins into a water-soluble state. This paired with moderate exercise and diet modification helps the fat fall away.
