- The brain is important to help you lose weight because it controls hunger and thus body weight. Without a proper mechanism of satiety in the brain, weight loss would be impossible. Two-thirds of the United States adult population is overweight and about one-third are trying to lose weight using a myriad of diet plans. Being overweight increases risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and some cancers. Losing weight can reduce these risks.
Diets don’t seem to be working. More than one-third of adults, or about 78 million people, are obese and one of five youths aged 2–19 years are (http://www.cdc.gov/chronicdisease/overview/ ). About half of all adults—117 million people—had one or more chronic health conditions, which account for most deaths. Heart disease is the most common chronic with diabetes not far behind. Diabetes can start in children, but by age 65 diabetes is greatest (29%, or 11.8 million seniors) (http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/statistics/?referrer=https://www.google.com/ ).
Healthy body weight is determined by the Body Mass Index (BMI). Those with BMIs less than 30 kg/m2 have lower rates of all of these chronic conditions (http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/educational/lose_wt/bmitools.htm ).
Diets fail for many reasons, including focusing on counting calories rather than assuring all essential nutrients are met. A healthy weight loss diet includes things that you need like essential nutrients, and avoiding things that you don’t like salt, sugar, and bad fats like saturated and trans fats. Eating like this has been shown to promote satiety and weight loss, preserve memory and concentration, and slow aging (http://crescopublications.org/pdf/jftns/JFTNS-2-006.pdf; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25592004; http://www.fasebj.org/content/29/8/3287.full?sid=8469c0f7-28cc-49a3-87ab-924d0fb469ca; http://jn.nutrition.org/content/145/9/2139.full?sid=756e1b87-0902-42ee-9ea1-e7f4bddad47b; http://archinte.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=1108507; http://advances.nutrition.org/content/7/5/889 ).
The Nutrient Shake contains essential nutrients, which have been shown to promote weight loss, and no ingredients that promote weight gain. The Nutrient Shake has 240 calories and can be used as part of a diet plan to help you lose weight. If you want to lose weight, consult with your physician before using the Nutrient Shake.
