Have you put on weight during Lock down?
Many of us have led a more sedentary lifestyle during Lockdown. Unable to go out and enjoy the usual activities throughout the day including commuting to and from work. The fridge is always open and we snack all day. The result is increased weight and in all the wrong places and a general feeling of being sick and tired of feeling sick and tired!
Not only has there been a nationwide increase in people being overweight but with the sedentary lifestyle comes lack of exercise – a dangerous combination contributing to various health issues with the rising tide of cancer, heart disease, dementia, allergy, IBS …… We push the sugar, salt, trans fats and gluten to the side of our plates and run, or attempt to run to macrobiotic, organic; supposedly clean diets, taking vast amounts of supplements that will supposedly replenish the many nutrient deficiencies we have. However, people are getting fatter and sicker. So, what is happening and what can we do to improve our health?
Most of the supplements we take, from supermarkets or online companies pushing their products, can actually cause more harm than good and leave your pockets empty.
Now is the time to get back on track, but do you know how to lose weight safely and keep the weight off an achieve optimal health? Most people do know that there is something wrong with the food we eat but don’t know how to change their diets sensibly.
Because urban and metropolitan humans now live at around 2000 Kcalories / day, and consume large amounts of ultra-processed foods, most people today have Type B malnutrition; that is, they are depleted in most micro- and phytonutrients. This causes the degenerative diseases listed above as well as anxiety, depression and insomnia.
