Insider Secret #2: Find The Root cause
Have you ever been to the doctors and you’re in and out with prescription in hand in less than 10 minutes?
(I have left the 30 min waiting time out to keep the point more valid).
The prescription you have been given is simply an over priced Band-Aid.
Unfortunately most doctors only look at the symptoms and treat accordingly. They will give you something that can assist right now. But fail to look at how to avoid this happening again. (NOTE: this is not an attack on doctors, probably more the way in which the process is set up)
The ROOT CAUSE is the missing link.
Consider this: Have you ever thought that the reason for your sugar cravings may have come from the fact you only had 3-4 hours sleep last night?
Or maybe you actually don’t have a slow metabolism and you’re gut and liver are simply clogged up by chemical cocktails which are sitting in your gut.
Or the fact that the main reason you are holding excess belly fat is due to your cortisol levels being to high, due to multiple different stresses.
Nutritional Stress: Poor food choices
Physical Stress: Over training and wrong types and styles of training
Electromagnetic Stress: Excess exposure to certain light and rays
Chemical Stress: Excess exposure to chemicals found in body care products and chemicals and pesticides used on foods
Emotional Stress: How you handle your emotions
Ok, I am sure you get my point that STRESS no longer means you are just having a bad day. There is so much more to it.
But when it comes to finding the ROOT CAUSE you need to dig deeper and put your CSI hat and binoculars on.
If you uncover that your ROOT CAUSE is the FACT you only get 3-4 hours sleep a night.
There is no food or exercise plan under the sun that will give you the results you want.
The topic of Sleep is a completely different book and set of research topics. But as it is SO VITAL in our quest for optimum performance I need to share this with you.
Lack of sleep will disrupt your HORMONES and play havoc on your ability to burn fat and build lean muscle.
This will leave you insulin resistant, craving sugary sweets and setting your body up for optimal fat storage mode.
Sleep is the most overlooked lifestyle factor that contributes to obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and more.
T.S. Wiley writes in her book Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar, Survival, that there are at least 10 different hormones, as well as many more neurotransmitters in the brain, that go sideways when you don’t get enough sleep”
And as we will discuss in a moment, losing fat has everything to do with your hormones.
It is important to know that during your sleep cycle, is when your body does its main repair work; not to dissimilar to you dropping your car off for a major service.
Tip: 6-8 Hours of quality sleep is ideal. Creating an ideal sleep environment with minimal electromagnetic stress frequencies is your ideal first step.
Yes - that means no Facebook or Instagram scrolling within 30 minutes before you go to sleep.
If you want to beat the bulge, you must reduce your exposure to computer, TV, or cell phone screens at night before bed because they decrease melatonin production.
Melatonin is the hormone responsible for regulating quality sleep-wake cycles.
To throw another spanner in the works, human melatonin production decreases as a person ages. Making this even more important as we get older.
Whether your ROOT CAUSE is lack of quality sleep or not! Accessing your SLEEP patterns is a must for EVERYONE looking to operate at optimum levels.
