weight gain

  1. Weight gain linked to packaging chemical

     [REVEALED] America’s “healthiest” grocer is secretly adding POUNDS to your waistline

    A week into the New Year, and already, resolutions are crumbling.

    Most people give up in weeks, if not days, on diets and exercise because – let’s face it…

    Losing weight is HARD WORK!!

    Well, friend, today I’m going to make it a whole lot easier to accomplish your goals…

    New research has just revealed a HIDDEN chemical that’s undermining all that hard work and effort.

    And it’s hiding where you least expect it…

    The WORST thing in the supermarket

    Those supermarket lunches, dinners and buffet bars sure are convenient.

    Many of them SEEM to have what SHOULD BE healthy options, especially in the fancier joints like Whole Foods.

    Yet a new study finds the meal containers in some of the nation’s leading supermarkets – including Whole Foods – are hiding a DANGEROUS TOXIN linked to cancer and other risks.

    But the biggest and most immediate impact of that chemical?

    Weight gain!

    The chemicals are called perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFASs, and they’re all over the place, such as:

    • Clothing
    • Furniture
    • Nonstick cookware
    • And more!

    But for today’s purposes, let’s look at the one place where they can really go to work on you: in your FOOD.

    PFAS is frequently found in food packaging, including fast-food wrappers and supermarket food containers.

    In fact, a new study finds 62 percent of supermarket containers from multiple chains tested POSITIVE for this chemical.

    And the worst offender of all?

    Whole Foods!

    Since PFAS can leech from the package and into the foods, you get a micro-dose with every bite

    Those low-but-steady levels can force your body to stubbornly cling to fat -- even when you’re trying your best to burn it off.

    One study last year found that four to seven of your extra pounds could be on your body because of PFAS!

    Your best bet, of course, is to AVOID packaged foods and fast foods (and don’t be fooled when the food itself seems healthy).

    Instead, cook your own meals from scratch at home when you can.

    And remember to avoid those nonstick pans I mentioned earlier – that’ll also help you detoxify and speed your weight loss.

  2. Weight gain BLOCKED with this one delicious snack

    This delicious treat can STOP weight gain in its tracks

    It’s one of the most visible – and FRUSTRATING – parts of aging.

    I’m not talking about the wrinkles on your face or the gray in your hair.

    No, it’s those extra pounds that slowly and quietly build up around your waistline year after year.

    Now, new research reveals an effortless secret that can BLOCK and REVERSE that weight hain.

    It’ll keep the extra pounds off your waistline -- and maybe even melt off some of what’s already there...

    Treat yourself with this WEIGHT-BUSTER

    All you have to do is break out your nutcracker!

    No, not the decorative one that always comes out this time of year.

    Get the kind you can USE – the kind that can pop your favorite nuts open so you can enjoy nature’s greatest treat – and keep it on hand all year long.

    Two new studies find that just a handful of nuts can help STOP weight gain, and that’s a trick that’ll especially come in handy in the holiday season.

    The trick isn’t just to add nuts.

    It’s to REPLACE something else with nuts.

    Make that one swap, and the first study finds you’ll have MUCH LESS of that age-related weight gain the creeps up on you over time.

    That makes perfect sense; these protein-packed, mineral-rich superstars of the snack world are loaded with healthy fats.

    Snacks like potato chips, on the other hand, are empty calories with zero nutrition.

    When you eat those empty carbs – like chips or sugary treats – two things happen. Your blood sugar levels spike and fall, and the hormones that signal “hunger” and “satisfaction” don’t quite get the right message.

    That causes you to feel hungry shortly afterward, so you eat more.

    It’s the real reason you “can’t eat just one.”

    Nuts are just the OPPOSITE.

    They won’t cause the blood sugar roller coaster. And the healthy fats and other nutrients help signal your body – and your hormones – that you’ve eaten and you’re happy.

    In other words, you’ll be less likely to go looking for another snack!

    And that’s not the only way they can help.

    The second study finds that Brazil nuts, in particular, not only help you feel fuller so you eat less overall, but they can also keep blood sugar in check and regulate your body’s production of insulin.

    Other studies have found nuts, in general as a daily treat, can cut the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer -- even death.

    Yes, all that… just from a simple snack!

  3. Weight gain common over holidays

  4. Belly fat leads to heart disease and cancer

    Just a little extra fat in the belly can increase the risk of cancer and heart disease.

  6. Cosmetic chemical linked to diabetes risk

    A common class of chemicals used in cosmetics and around the home can increase the risk of diabetes in women.
  7. Low vitamin D can cause weight gain

    Vitamin D has been linked to obesity again, with a new study finding that people with low levels of the sunshine vitamin are more likely to gain more weight.
  8. Poor sleep habits raise stroke risk

    Poor sleep has been linked repeatedly to poor health, and new research shows how not getting enough sleep can increase your risk of a stroke.

  13. The real reason for Prozac Nation

    Who's responsible for the antidepressant frenzy that's led to 10 percent of all Americans taking these dangerous meds? If you guessed shrinks, you're only partly right. Fact is, there's been a stunning rise in the number of non-psychiatrists dishing out mood drugs.
