According to the concept known as adaptive thermogenesis, thin people can consume large amounts of food without gaining weight because the appetite center speeds up metabolic activity to compensate for the increased consumption. Thermogenesis allows the body to eliminate excess calories by generating heat. Defective thermogenesis causes the transformation of a larger fraction of a given caloric intake into body fat resulting in weight gain and obesity. Specialized types of fat cells, called brown fat cells send signals to control the thermogenesis response. The primary role of brown adipose tissue is thermogenesis and overall energy control. Some diets actually suppress thermogenesis, which is the opposite of what you need to lose weight. This is why people gain back their weight on “fad diets” that are not based upon scientific principles. The fact is that 95% of all “diets” fail. Beginning your weight loss endeavor with a colon cleansing program will ensure that you lose weight because colon cleansing supports thermogenesis.If you are overweight, your glandular system is all clogged and sluggish. In order to lose weight, your body needs an efficient and balanced glandular system to support thermogenesis. The most critical gland in weight control is the thyroid gland because it is usually the cause of the imbalance. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the neck, surrounding the windpipe. It produces the hormone thyroxine, which serves to regulate the rate at which metabolic reactions occur in the body. Thyroxine is essential to induce thermogenesis. Thyroid hormones are released into the bloodstream and are transported throughout the body where they control metabolism. Metabolism is the conversion of oxygen and calories (food) into energy. Every cell in the body depends upon thyroid hormones for regulation of their metabolism. As thyroxine levels increase, so does the caloric expenditure. As thyroxine levels decrease, so does the speed of metabolism. Only proper nourishment and internal cleansing can balance this gland and until the thyroid is balanced, it is not possible to lose weight effectively. This is why most weight loss programs are insufficient.Colon Cleansing And Weight LossIf you are severely overweight, you can expect to lose up to 40 pounds during your cleansing program. The average person will lose 15 pounds, typically in the chin abdomen, thighs, and hip areas, as these are the places your body stores fat first. A cleansing program will provide the balance you need to lose weight. The fantastic benefit of a colon cleansing program is that not only will you benefit from a direct loss of weight while completing the program, but you will also find that after you successfully complete a cleansing program, you will continue losing weight with minimal effort. Colon cleansing will help you to lose weight in three ways. First, after the program, your appetite will decrease because you will actually require less food to obtain the nutrients needed by your body. This is because your colon will become much more efficient in the absorption of nutrients without all the mucous plaque lining the walls. The transit time of fecal matter will be greatly reduced, speeding up the time it takes for food to move through the digestive tract. Removing the toxins from your colon will provide a less toxic environment so that your glands will operate much more smoothly and efficiently as well, including the ever-important thyroid gland. You will be surprised at how simple weight loss can be.
