Weight Loss Program

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.

  • Wheat contains a protein

    called gluten, which is difficult for the body to break down,

    absorb and assimilate. Women with wheat intolerance are prone

    to fatigue, depression, bloating, intestinal gas, and bowel changes.

    Try breads, crackers and cookies made with alternative grains

    such as rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, or soy and oat flours.

  • Dairy products are a primary

    source of food allergies. Instead of milk and cheese, choose soy,

    rice, nut, and multiple grain milks.

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:

  • Bromelain. Digestive enzymes

    are one of the body’s most efficient ways of reducing inflammation.

    I recommend 1,000 mg of bromelain, either with or immediately

    following a meal.

  • MSM is one of the most

    powerful anti-inflammatories from natural foods. In a study published

    in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, MSM enabled

    food-sensitive people to eat foods they normally could not tolerate.

    I suggest 250-750 mg of MSM granules three times per day with


  • Quercetin, a bioflavonoid

    in apples and onions, has been found to decrease inflammation

    and inhibit the release of histamines and other inflammatory substances.

    I recommend 300-600 mg quercetin once or twice a day. To increase

    its absorption rate, take it with bromelain.
