The Burden That Is Excess Weight
Obesity and excess weight are occurring in epidemic proportions. Nearly two-thirds of Australian adults and over a quarter of children and adolescents were classified as overweight or obese in 2014-2015. Apart from the detriment to cardiovascular health, carrying extra weight often comes with self-esteem issues which affect quality of life. Despite all this doom and gloom, there is light at the end of the tunnel. It’s called the DNA Clinical Fat Loss Program and it can help you achieve a healthier weight!
Your Body Weight Set-Point – Time for a Re-Set!
All individuals have a unique metabolic ‘set-point’, a weight range that your body fights to maintain. To stay in its ‘happy place’, your body will resist weight loss attempts and cause you to regain weight after successful weight loss. The set-point is raised by a number of factors – sedentary lifestyle; lack of exercise; frequent consumption of sugar combined with saturated fats; inadequate protein; poor sleep; stress or anxiety; poor gut health; and high toxin exposure.
Lowering your set-point is key to losing weight and keeping it off. This can be achieved by following the cutting edge principles in the DNA Weight Management Program. DNA makes adhering to a weight loss program simple, and prevents the rebound weight gain that often occurs with diets that aren’t designed for safe and sustainable weight loss.
Today’s Food sets you up to fail!
Highly processed foods can be a roadblock on your weight loss journey. They are specifically designed with ingredients such as fat and sugar to hijack your brain, making it harder to stop eating them. Described by obesity researchers as ‘hyperpalatable’, these often highly processed foods confuse your brain’s fullness threshold so you continually want more. In contrast, wholefoods have minimal fat and sugar, and contain fibre which naturally allows your appetite to normalise. Wholefoods are a cornerstone of the DNA Program, making it easier for you to eat fewer calories yet feel more satisfied.

Reviewing over 400 scientific papers on excess weight and obesity uncovered three profound new findings:
1. Low carbohydrate (LC) diets are no more effective at reducing weight than low fat (LF) diets in overweight individuals. This means as both give positive outcomes, you can follow the diet that best suits you.
2. Controlled eating of discretionary foods prevent your body from adapting to your new diet and slowing your metabolism; also preventing you from feeling deprived.
3. Sufficient protein decreases hunger.
