Conventional wisdom says: Limiting caloric intake and getting frequent exercise is all that is required for effective weight loss.
Now The Calcium Lie 2 reveals:
Excess calcium in the body is an important contributing factor which leads to obesity. In fact, obese individuals are “starving” for other essential minerals and nutrients. Even exercising frequently and eating less will not keep weight off permanently. It always comes back unless you change the underlying metabolism.
Here’s some additional information you’ll learn about obesity by reading The Calcium Lie by Dr. Robert Thompson and Kathleen Barnes.
– Adding sea salt or rock salt to our diet provides all of the essential minerals we need, in the exact proportion our bodies require except sodium and potassium.
– Excess calcium and mineral-deficiency in our bodies not only leads to obesity but also to diseases and conditions including Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, Type 2 hypothyroidism, depression, anxiety, insomnia, migraines, circulatory diseases, hypertension, immune compromise and more.
– Food cravings are signals sent by our bodies indicating mineral deficiency, which then stimulate us to unhealthy eating.
– All cells in our bodies (except for fat cells) become starved for glucose and amino acids as a result of excess calcium, and this leads to increased cravings for glucose and for minerals, and to deficiencies of sodium, potassium, and essential amino acids.
– Until we address the excess calcium and mineral deficiencies in our bodies, any weight loss is almost always temporary.
– Meaningful weight loss is always accompanied by metabolic changes.
– The foods that most people eat are frequently low in minerals because most fruits and vegetables today are grown in mineral-poor soil and few foods are vine-ripened. As a result, our metabolisms are slowed, and our cells can’t obtain the essential amino acids needed for full health.
– If you experience cravings for sugary foods, this could be an indication that you are becoming insulin resistant and entering a state called metabolic syndrome which results in elevated insulin levels, high blood pressure, elevated total cholesterol and triglycerides, and obesity.
– Cravings for salty foods reflect mineral deficiencies in the body, including a lack of sodium.
– To lose weight and keep it off permanently, you must treat metabolic imbalances by correcting for any mineral deficiencies. Simply reducing caloric intake and getting frequent exercise won’t achieve lasting weight loss.
– A slow metabolism, which leads to obesity, is a result of the body’s failure to get the essential amino acids and glucose our cells require.
