There are people that work out every day for an hour a day and eat low-fat foods, and they still can't get those extra five kilograms off. As they get older they notice that their cravings for fatty foods and sweets increase. They get more illnesses. They have more physical problems. They're tired all the time.
Is there a Solution?
In your small intestine there are finger-like protrusions called villi. If you look it up in the dictionary it's under "villus." It is through these villi that absorption of the nutrients from your food takes place. Through the years your villi get damaged and break off.
Things that damage your villi are:
Airborne toxins such as exhaust fumes
As your villi continue to become damaged, it becomes increasingly difficult for your body to absorb nutrients.
So what happens when your body is not absorbing the nutrients out of the food?
Firstly, you start needing more food ~ your appetite increases as do your cravings ~ because your body needs more nutrients. You also start to crave fats and sugars because they are the easiest substances for your body to absorb.
You become fatigued when your body is not getting the proper nutrition. When your villi are not healthy, your body thinks it’s starving and stores instead of burns the fat.
You may be saying "Well, I eat really healthy, low fat, and natural foods and I take vitamins." Some of you may even be working out at the gym. Even though you may be doing all these things, you can still be experiencing these symptoms.
The underlying problem is most likely absorption. No matter how much good food and vitamins you consume, if your body is not absorbing them, then it's a total waste.
Weight Control from the Inside Out To get your weight off, and keep it off, you need to feed your body on a cellular level. Your body can then repair and rebuild the villi to the same healthy state as when you were younger.
