Keys to Restoring Your Health...and Energy!

Is Your Metabolism functioning properly?

Energy...or the lack of energy is a result of your metabolism!  The body burns calories for one reason -- to produce energy!  The body (your metabolism) burns calories from either carbohydrates, proteins or fats.

Those who are struggling with fatigue, weight gain, cravings, mood swings, etc. are typically burning calories from carbs and proteins instead of stored fats.  This is important because you get two and a half times more energy when you burn a gram of fat instead of a gram of carbs or proteins…and this needs to be corrected if you expect to get your energy back!

Your metabolism is much like a fireplace… 

·         Carbohydrates are like small twigs, they burn very easily but they don’t produce much heat (energy).

·         Proteins are like small branches, they produce energy, But we don’t want to be burning lean muscle for energy.

·         Fats are like the big fat logs, they burn for hours and give off a lot of heat.

The body produces two and a half times more energy when it burns calories from stored body fats as opposed to burning carbs and proteins (lean muscle).  So, the key is to burn as much FAT as possible.

If you are always struggling with

·         Fatigue and weight gain

·         Cravings and low blood sugar

·         Difficulty concentrating and to focus, ADD

·         Mid-morning and afternoon slumps

·         Mood swings and irritability if meals are missed or delayed

·         Having to eat every couple of hours

·         Waking up in the middle of the night and can’t fall back asleep

These symptoms indicate that your metabolism is primarily burning calories from carbohydrates and proteins instead of stored body fats.  (use the online health quizzes to see if you are burning calories from stored fats). 

A Fast-Paced Lifestyle Can Drain Your Energy

The body is designed to burn calories throughout the day from stored body fats, but when you are on the go, in that “fight or flight” mode, skipping meals, eating the wrong foods or exercising, your body is going to burn calories from carbs and proteins.

Yes, you’ll burn calories, but you won’t be burning calories that will give you long-term energy. This is why counting calories consumed (eaten) versus calories burned doesn’t work! 

Just because you burned 300 calories from the treadmill or any other type of exercise…it doesn’t tell us if we burned 300 calories from the breakdown of fats or the breakdown of carbs and proteins.

Your Hormones May Be The Key To Improving Your Metabolism…

Your metabolism is controlled by hormones, which are a result of stress and diet!  Some hormones trigger your body to burn fats…some hormones trigger your body to burn carbs and proteins….and some hormones trigger your body to store fats.  The key is to make sure your thyroid, pancreas and adrenal glands are triggering the right hormones that will keep your energy up and your weight down.

Your Diet (blood sugar regulation) triggers your pancreas to produce insulin and glucagon.   Insulin causes your body to store fat, while glucagon triggers your body to burn fats. A carbohydrate rich meal triggers insulin and cause your blood sugar to rise and fall very rapidly…this causes your body to burn carbs and proteins. 

On the other hand a meal containing more protein produces more glucagon, which helps stabilize your blood sugar and allows your body to burn stored body fats.  This is why maintaining proper blood sugar is critical in the quest for more energy and weight loss.

Thyroid hormones regulate your metabolism when you are at rest and relaxing!

When you are stressed, always on the go, in that ‘fight or flight mode your adrenal glands will produce cortisol and adrenaline, which trigger the body to burn carbs and proteins -- and NOT fats.  This is why Stress is that the missing piece of the puzzle and contributes to fatigue and weight gain.

Your body is designed to handle short term stress…NOT constant, prolonged stress.  Plus stress is cumulative!  This is why fatigue, weight gain, cravings, and mood swings are so common.  They are a result of cortisol and adrenaline triggering your metabolism to burn calories from carbs and proteins (lean muscle) NOT stored body fat.

There are different types of stresses

  • Mental stress…worry, fear, anger, always on the go

  • Physical stress…not enough sleep, too much exercise, too much of the wrong exercise, being overweight, joint pain, aches and injuries

  • Chemical stress…polluted water and air, toxins, pesticides, hormones and antibiotics in our food, medications, artificial sweeteners, colors and preservatives

  • Dietary stress…skipping meals,  low blood sugar, indigestion, reflux, heartburn, etc

Stress is Cumulative

The more worry, fear and anxiety in your life…

The more you skip meals and let your blood sugar drops…

The more your indigestion, heartburn and reflux…

The more physical stress, lack of sleep, aches and pains

….add up and overwork your adrenal glands, which causes an overproduction of cortisol and adrenaline.  This causes your metabolism to burn carbs and protein, which don’t give us much energy.

Improving Your Metabolism

Improving your metabolism is a two-pronged approach that deals with Stress and Diet.

1.      Reduce the amount of stress that is taxing your adrenal glands.

2.      Identify where the stress is coming from -- is it mental, physical, chemical or dietary stress?

3.      Nourish the adrenal glands, by supplementing them with the specific nutrients that have been depleted from all the stress.

Multivitamins are great at providing a little bit of everything…but they don’t provide enough specific nutrients that have been depleted from stress.  We recommend Adrenal Fuel, which is a two phase stress recovery formula that nourishes those exhausted adrenal glands.  Plus, it can help balance the hormones produced by the adrenal glands and thyroid.

There is NO other product on the market like it.  Many products are designed to just reduce cortisol.  However, it’s more than just cortisol. You have to nourish the adrenal glands, which are responsible for the production of cortisol, adrenaline, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen and a whole lot more.

Adrenal Fuel contains NO stimulants, which are the absolute worst thing you can be taking if stress has depleted your energy and adrenal glands.  There is NO ma huang, caffeine, ephedra, guarana, kola nut or bitter orange in Adrenal-Fuel.  These herbs are commonly used in energy drinks and weight loss products.

Give Adrenal Fuel a try for 30 days and see if it doesn’t give you that energy boost you’ve been missing.
