Weight gain begins when you consume high glycemic carbohydrates which causes high blood glucose levels... This in turn alarms the pancreas to secrete excess insulin which tells your body to store excess glucose as fat and results in lowered blood sugar levels that turn into hypoglycemia. In a nut shell, this cycle repeats itself until your body is stuck in weight gain and fat storage mode. Food with high starches (also high in glycemic carbohydrates) and sugars are usually the culprits: pasta, bread, cereal, bagels, pastry, cake, chip, and cookies. In addition to poor diet, stress and lack of sleep can also contribute to weight gain.
Weight loss occurs when your body loses or spends more calories than it takes in. And in some conditions, this is when your body enters ketosis or a natural fat burning cycle. Most often, weight loss is a combination of good diet, adequate activity (to burn fat and calories), and specialty treatments to attack your fat (such as red light therapy). In addition to our red light therapy treatments on your body and areas of fat, our team will help you reset your diet and make recommendations on the foods that can help to combat inflammation and increase your metabolism.
