Obesity and Weight gain is a pandemic. More and more efforts and awareness are being raised regarding weight gain and obesity; however, despite multiple weight loss efforts, weight loss diets, weight loss exercises, weight loss books, weight loss plans, medical or holistic, various regimens from weight loss blogs, weight loss books, and weight loss authors, no one been able to find a favorable solution for all or have success in all the weight loss groups at the same efficiency. What could be the reason for such outcomes? The answer is simple and lies inside our brain.
We all have heard the statement that we are what we eat. But how many times do we think about what does that have to do with our brain? Why do we eat what we eat? Or why is it important to watch what we eat for our brain health? What does brain health have to do with Obesity, Weight gain, Weight loss, Addiction or even cravings? The answer is very simple: ideally, what we eat ends up being utilized by body for the production of extremely essential neurochemicals called Neurotransmitters, that not only control our mood, memory, and sleep but also our eating habits, cravings and weight gain.
Neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine have emerged as the most powerful substances produced by the body that influences mood, Cravings, eating habits and body weight. There influence is so broad, they not only drive hundreds of chemical reactions in the body, they form the basis for having positive mood and emotional states such as happiness, joy, creativity, great focus and concentration. When neurotransmitter levels are depleted, negative emotional states such as hopelessness, fatigue, pessimism, anxiety, and depression quickly set in.
Historically, the body was able to obtain the building blocks for the production of neurotransmitters from the food supply. Today’s food, however, is woefully deficient in the raw materials required for the production of neurochemicals. Additionally, excessive stimulation and stress cause rapid breakdown of an already nonexistent pool of neurotransmitters.
The main neurotransmitters are: serotonin, GABA, dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, glutamate, and acetylcholine. Each neurotransmitter has their special role. Certain ones such as dopamine and epinephrine are heavily involved in the pleasure/reward centers of the brain and form complex pathways between the brain and stomach. Dopamine is one of the main neurochemicals involved in happiness and generation of positive mood states. When dopamine is depleted, the brain is driven to compensate for these deficiencies by craving sugar, nicotine, caffeine, or alcohol. These cravings may manifest in different ways in different individuals. They may even manifest as behavioral addictions such as gambling, shopping, or nail biting. Regardless of the craving, addiction, or impulsive behavior, the source remains the same: depleted and deficient neurotransmitter levels.
All neurotransmitter deficiencies eventually manifest as some level of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. This in turn drives the individual to seek comfort through food or some other chemical such as nicotine and caffeine. At the core of all obesity, therefore, is deficient neurotransmitters. Neurodiet is a special program that addresses the root cause of obesity and weight gain. With the NeuroDiet program , when the brain had adequate levels of dopamine and serotonin, the body would not crave sugar, carbohydrates, chocolate, fatty foods, etc. leading to weight gain. Obesity can never truly be addressed without balancing neurotransmitters and this can be meticulously achieved with the NeuroDiet program.
The excessive stimulation, stress, and poor food of today will not change overnight. A targeted neurotransmitter balancing program with NeuroDiet and neurotransmitter repletion addresses the root cause of our health afflictions of today and represents a novel way to empower the individual to create a sustainable solution for obesity, insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Ultimately, with NeuroDiet, the patient is able to transcend negative emotional/behavioral states and move towards a new way of being and the realization of an as yet unfathomable state of creative potential and authentic being.
