Eliminating False Fats
After years of clinical practice treating thousands
of patients, I’ve learned that, for many women, weight gain is related
to the accumulation of fat as well as the accumulation of false
fat. Excess fat is stored when we either eat too many calories
or can’t burn those calories efficiently. But false fat
is due to the accumulation of excess fluids, which we experience
as bloating and swelling. This can come from:
1. Injury to Digestive Organs
When tissue is damaged or injured, whether from trauma, bacterial
or viral infections, toxins, or allergens, an inflammatory response
2. Allergic Reactions
Food allergies can trigger responses that cause bloating or fluid
retention. When the body detects an allergen, it releases histamines
and other chemicals to the affected areas, which swell up in response.
As we age, our production of digestive enzymes diminishes, creating
a greater chance of developing allergic reactions to foods. The
two most common food allergens are wheat and dairy.
3. Prostaglandin Hormones
The body converts dietary essential fatty acids (EFAs) into prostaglandins.
The type of prostaglandins we produce depends on the fats we consume.
Series 2 prostaglandins are hormone-like chemicals that cause inflammation.
Simply increasing your consumption of the good fats, omega-3 EFAs,
found in cold-water fish, flaxseeds, soybeans, walnuts, etc instead
of highly-inflammatory dairy products, red meat and poultry skin
will help eliminate this source of false fat.
4. Natural Anti-inflammatories
A number of natural anti-inflammatory supplements can help prevent
false fat. Try any one of the following until you find which one
works best for you:
