It’s important to be a fat burner versus a sugar burner for long term health. But what does this really mean? What does a sugar burner look like, feel like and act like? Do any of these apply to you?
I know, that’s kind of backward from what you’ve been told! Today you’re going to learn the truth about why you may not be losing weight and why I think so many people struggle to do so.
Most of us never learn that in order for the body to release “fat” stores it must have the ability to detoxify first. Toxins are stored in fat! If your liver does not have the support to move these toxins into a water-soluble form and excrete them out of the body they get recirculated back into the bloodstream and back into the fat and fat loss stops.
Five years ago I started doing thirty-day classes with Dr. Jana Schrier here in Georgetown TX. They were called “Detox to Weight-loss”. She had asked that I spend one night a week with her patients educating them on why you must detox the body first before the weight will come off. Not only was it a huge success (many alumni are still practicing what they learned) but Dr. Schrier saw many of the lab numbers for some of these patients that were very positive changes in a thirty-day time frame.
Have You Heard of Obesogens?
Obesogens are artificial chemicals that are believed to contribute to obesity. They come from things like plastics, cookware, cosmetics, pharmaceutical drugs. Additionally they come from pesticides and herbicides, and chemicals used for industrial purposes just to name a few.
Obesogens interfere with your endocrine system and affect your hormones. Some endocrine disrupters exert their effects by activating estrogen receptors. This can cause harmful effects in both men and women.
The role of environmental chemicals in obesity has garnered increased attention in academics. The National Institutes of Health has come on board. They are suggesting this could be part of the reason for our obesity epidemic. “There are many studies in both humans and animals. The National Toxicology Program found real biological plausibility.” In 2011 the NIH launched a 3-year effort to fund research exploring the role of environmental chemical exposures in obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
When you lose weight you free up all these Obesogens from the fat stores and “wham!” the body gets inundated with toxicity! This, in turn, leads to the lowering of your active thyroid, which lowers metabolism. This makes you hold onto fat!
You ARE Toxic!
We come into the world toxic. As far back as 2005 a study done on ten newborn baby’s showed 287 chemicals in those little bodies!
There is no way you or I are not filled with toxins. Even if we eat organic, reduce chemical exposure in our home with our cleaning products, cookware, cosmetics, etc. we live in a sea of chemicals.
If you work in an office you are surrounded by plastics that out-gas, carpets that out-gas, the air that is full of this stuff. If you wash your hands you absorb chlorine and fluoride right through your skin.
The most recent area of toxicity is coming from the “unseen” world of Electro Magnetic Fields. Science has now shown that these EMF’s can lead to insulin resistance (among hundreds of other problems). The EMF’s affect the calcium channel on the cell site, which is a primary cell function, and in doing so impact the whole cell. You and I live in a “sea” of wi-fi signal and cell signals!
Before Starting Any Weight-loss Program – Detox!
This may feel overwhelming but I’m here to help you sort all this out and guide you towards detoxing safely!
I’m first and foremost an educator. What we found in our “live” classes was, the participants “got” why they needed to detox, not only for weight-loss but for long term health. Let me teach you things you did not know about why your body is holding onto weight!
10 Day Detox
Our next class starts on October 21st! This is the perfect time to do this, before the holiday’s hit and the cold and flu season is in full swing. We will be setting your body up to get off sugar, gently detox, lower inflammation, boost immune function as well as teaching you tips and tools to start to lower your toxic burden.
I will be coming back from a ten-day trip to Hawaii and I will be ready to DETOX with you!!

Let’s do this!
Up until 1900, around 1% of deaths were caused by cancer. Today, 42% of Americans will develop cancer in their lifetime and 24% will die from cancer. Many experts point at toxic overload from pollutants in our air, water, food, household cleaners, skincare products, chemicals from carpets, furniture and clothing, just to name a few!
Cancer is a scary word. No one wants to hear “you have cancer.” Yet one in three men and one in five women will develop cancer in their lifetime.
As you read this, I’m out in California. I’m getting ready to head up the Northern California coast for five days of total un-plugged, rest and relaxation. This is a look off the deck of the house we will be staying at, spectacular!
The forecast is for rain, but no problem, I’ll hunker down with a good book, listening to the waves crashing on the rocks, and I’ll be just fine!
It’s THAT time of year, Flu shot signs everywhere!
I choose not to get the flu shot because according to the the Centers for Disease Control, most flu vaccines contain mercury in the form of thimerosal, some containing as much as 25mcg per dose – which is more than 250 times above the EPA’s safety limit.
But mercury is just one of the many dangerous substances found in the flu shot more including: aluminum, a neurotoxin, Triton X-100, a common detergent used in laboratories; phenol (carbolic acid): ethylene glycol or antifreeze; betapropiolactone, a disinfectant; nonoxynol, used to kill or stop growth of STD’s; and octoxinol 9, a vaginal spermicide!
I work SO hard to eat organic, fresh and non-toxic food, why would I put all that in my body (or my childs) ???
How Do They Determine the Flu Shot?
There are two types of vaccines, Therapeutic (cancer, metabolic disorders, chronic illnesses, and infectious diseases), and Preventable human vaccines markets (pediatric vaccinations, flu shots) that are estimated to reach $55 billion worldwide! Vaccines are BIG business, and that is important to understand.
No doubtedly you have heard the “grim” news about this years flu, H3N2. Have you noticed how every year there are dire warnings to get your flu shot? There are 16 different types of HA and 9 different types of NA, therefore, there are potentially 144 different subtypes of influenza A viruses. Among them, two subtypes of influenza A, H1N1 and H3N2 are the most common ones that infect humans.
Each year the FDA meets to determine which strains will go into the vaccine based on recommendations from the World Health Organization. Sometimes they are right, sometimes they are wrong. In an interview with CNBC, John Shiver, global head of research and development at Sanofi Pasteur, which produces the bulk of flu vaccines in the U.S. stated: “There’s a lot of good methodology, but it’s not foolproof, so some years are better than others.” [Read more…] about Why I Don’t Get the Flu Shot
