How Nettles Help You Shed Fat

Age related weight gain is a serious problem.

Have you noticed that you eat less but gain weight anyway?

If you are approaching menopause you cannot put off taking aggressive action any longer. There are 3 things that happen to make losing weight harder as we age:

  • slower metabolism
  • hormonal imbalances
  • Our bodies have less capacity to utilize even reduced amounts of saturated fats and sugars.
  • You have to restore your insulin sensitivity, regain hormonal balance and repair your metabolic capacity.

    There’s no other way to lose weight!

    Forget about the diet pills, fad diets and crazy schemes that promise you fast fat loss. They make your problems so much worse and do nothing to help you lose fat permanently.

    Here’s what you do instead - make yourself a stinging nettle infusion "tea" every day.

    Don’t underestimate the potency of this for weight management - you will be transforming your health and body. It has significant anti-inflammatory effect, increases insulin sensitivity, lowers blood sugar and enhances your metabolism.*

    Do not worry! It tastes like tea and is easy to make.

    Obesity has an inflammatory component and scientists from the University of Pittsburgh have discovered that CRP (C-reactive protein,) the biomarker for many age related diseases with a hidden inflammatory component such as heart disease and cancer, has a role in obesity. CRP can block the activity of the hormone leptin which signals the body when it’s full. Leptin helps you to regulate your weight.*

    Stinging nettle is an amazingly healing plant with significant anti-inflammatory activity as well as being loaded with antioxidants to help you detox and release fat.

    Read more about stinging nettle infusion, how to make it and what other foods to eat to burn fat here.

    Is this all you need to do? Losing fat for a lifetime means that you are eating low glycemic, high fiber foods every day, exercising vigorously and thinking like a skinny person.

    If you need an aggressive, comprehensive, individualized plan, consider filling out a weight loss survey and scheduling a weight management consultation that comes with a written plan and 3 months of coaching.
