Why are healthy villi a big weight loss secret? You will find out here.
Why is it so hard to lose weight?
Do you find it difficult to lose weight? You might be working out everyday and eating less food. But for some reason, you still weigh the same and your waistline does not change. Worse yet, you might even be gaining more body fats and weight! You feel more confused and frustrated.
You may notice that your cravings for fats and sweets increase as you grow older. You might experience health problems. You also easily get tired.
In your intestines, there are many finger-like protrusions called villi. They absorb the nutrients from the food you eat. Through the years, they may get damaged and break off.
As they continue to become damaged, it becomes increasingly difficult for your body to absorb nutrients.
Avoid these things because they damage your body:
Close up and cross-section view of your intestine.
One of the most common experience of people who have weight and health issues is constipation.
You start needing more food. Your appetite increases as do your cravings. You also start to crave fats and sugars because they taste good and are the easiest substances for your body to absorb.
You easily get tired and experience fatigue when your body is not getting proper nutrition. When those finger-like protrusions in your intestines are not healthy, they do not absorb nutrient that well. Your body thinks you are starving. You now store or keep more body fats, instead of burning them.
You may be saying, "Well, I eat really healthy. I love low-fat foods. I take vitamins. I regularly go to the gym."
But how often do you eat a healthy balanced meal? It’s great if you eat healthy meals everyday. And, yes, you love low-fat foods. How many servings do you eat? More than what you need? What is the quality of your multi-vitamins? Even though you may be doing those things, you can still be experiencing the symptoms described above.
The underlying problem is most likely poor nutrient absorption. No matter how much healthy food plus vitamin and mineral supplements you take in, if your body is not absorbing them, then it is a total waste.
Again, simple carbohydrates (sugars) are the easiest to absorb. If your intestines are not healthy, you often absorb more of these simple carbs and less of the other nutrients. What happens? Your body remains hungry. You keep craving and eating. You absorb lots of sugars. Excessive carbs result to body fats. Then you easily get sick.
Villi are a big weight loss secret. Ensure they are clean and healthy. Ensure that your body is able to absorb nutrients. Eat healthy colorful meals. Then your pH balance improves. You have better control over your cravings and hunger. You eventually lose weight and re-gain your health!
You need to consume enough fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Fiber cleans your villi and intestines. You can get fiber from fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates. DHA+EPA Omega-3 is needed for villi health. (Know more about omega-3. It can help you lose weight, too!)
You can get fiber and omega-3 from nutritional supplements. Just get the ones with good quality.
To maximize your benefits, do not take Omega-3 supplements when you are having a fiber-rich meal. Fiber absorbs fats --both good and bad fats.
