There are several reasons why toxins can make weight loss difficult. As mentioned above, if your system is overrun by toxins, your body will continue producing fat cells, which store the toxins along with the fat.
Now, in this situation, even if you reduce your calorie intake and work out vigorously, you won’t be able to shed any weight, let alone meet your weight loss goals. The inability to lose weight is a symptom, not a disease. The disease, for lack of a better word, is a heavy buildup of toxins in your system.
Unless you address the root cause, you won’t be able to shed weight. Now, when you do lose weight, the toxins stored in the fat cells are released into your bloodstream. If you cut down around 10% of your body weight, depending on your weight, the weight released from toxins could be up to 50% of the number of pounds you lose.
It is extremely dangerous to have these many toxins floating around in your bloodstream. There is a threat to your vital organs. The toxins can invade your important systems and lead to major health problems, including cancer and cardiovascular problems. Moreover, the toxins released from the fat cells are likely to target your thyroid hormone in particular. The reason for this is that toxins and thyroid hormone cannot coexist in harmony.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. You have to deal with many other symptoms of toxicity within your system, including
A constant feeling of irritability. If you suddenly develop a ‘short fuse’ for no apparent reason, it could be caused by a heavy quantity of toxins in your system
Feeling better if you eat a lot of food. When you increase your food intake, the toxins transfer to the fat cells, along with the fat you ingest. As a result, you feel better because there are fewer toxins floating around in your bloodstream.
In this scenario, you wouldn’t have much difficulty losing the weight that you have gained recently. However, that is as good as it gets. You will reach a plateau beyond which you will not be able to lose weight.
The only way you can get over the plateau is to detoxify. The more you weigh, the harder it will be to lose
weight if you don’t deal with the toxins simultaneously. You have to find a strategy that enables you to detoxify and at the same time, you can continue your weight loss efforts.
