Many know all the right things to do in order to lose weight; the right foods to eat, the right exercise program to follow. They drink enough water, they count calories religiously. They’ve tried a multitude of weight loss programs. They’ve lost some weight but either not enough or it’s come right back. Finally, they give up. What’s the point? It’s way too hard, so they might as well go back to eating whatever they want since it’s not making any difference anyway.
There is a reason for fat build-up and fat retention that most people are unaware of. It’s toxicity. Chemicals that we are exposed to get stored in the body’s fat cells. It’s a way for the body to attempt to protect itself from the attack of harmful toxins that have no natural place in our system.
Recently on The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Mehmet Oz introduced his audience to a relatively new word in the fight against fat: “OBESOGENS”, also know as endocrine disruptors, that are essentially chemicals you’re eating that are making you fat. These chemicals, found for example as pesticides on an apple, are digested and broken down. Dr. Oz explains how these endocrine disruptors “essentially hijack the regulatory system that controls your weight and promotes obesity by increasing fat cells, decreasing metabolism and altering the brain”s ability to manage feelings of hunger.” The obesogens go into and irritate the liver, and then get put into fat cells. These fat cells are forced to multiply and thus result in fat and weight gain. As long as we keep ingesting chemicals, the body will hold on to fat. These chemicals are in the form of herbicides, petrochemicals, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, food additives and synthetic drugs. Millions of pounds of antibiotics are injected into farm animals every year and our fruits and vegetables are bombarded with insecticides and pesticides.
Is there a solution? Is there a way to rid the body of these chemicals?
The answer is yes; by incorporating a lifestyle of nutritional cleansing. The best cleanses are systemic, meaning they cleanse the whole body on a cellular level as opposed to targeting specific organs. They also contain high quality, natural cleansing agents in conjunction with nutrient rich ingredients that in turn replenish the body. Once toxins are flushed from the system, the body no longer has a reason to hold on to the fat and so a positive “side benefit” of cleansing is therefore the melting away of body fat.
It is important to know that true nutritional cleansing does not mean fasting or depriving the body of food, and that by incorporating healthy cleansing as a lifestyle, it is possible to lose weight and keep it off, fighting and defeating obesogens every step of the way.
Kristin Steinholt lives and laughs with horses in Golden, Colorado, and alongside her husband, Ken Emrick, helps people all across the country improve their health through nutrition.

TAGGED! 8 Random things about me
Image by LadyGuinevere! So, I didn't get officially tagged, I got invited to be 🙂 I thought it would be nice to try and write down 8 random facts about me. 1. I'm very insecure about myself. Mostly my appearance. I think I'm too fat and ugly. (The above picture was taken September 2008 during a glamourshoot, I gained more weight since then and even if it isn't supposed to be hard to look good in a professional shoot, there were ony like 3 good pics of me, out of 50!) About 3 years ago I actually lost 20 kilos, but they're all back again. I felt pretty then, and skinny and secure. But I wasn't myself at that time, and the only thing I was certain about, was my exterior. I doubted the rest. So, I guess that subconsciously I don't want to go back to that place anymore because it wasn't right either. I have to learn to accept myself for who I am and what I am capable of. 2. I lost my mom about 4 years ago and even if I have adjusted with time, life just isn't the same without her. It's like everything is a bit less colourful so to say. She had a strong believe in the supernatural, she was sort of a psychich. I grew along with her, believing what she believed too. But ever since 'they' took her away from me I'm having a hard time believing. I can't see why someone like her had to be taken away. Not just for my sake, but for all those people she helped and loved. For all the good she could have done. And I just know she could pull it off. I believed in her, more than anything. 3. I love to watch shows and movies about the supernatural. Harry Potter, Supernatural, Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dark Angel, Roswell, you name it. Recently I discovered reading again, I used to love it when I was younger until I had to read SO much books for school they ruined it for me. I want to become a writer someday. I love to write as much as I do reading. I lose myself in another world and it's great. I envy people who have writing skills. I envy people with beautiful singing voices and musical skills too. I'd love to be a singer too but I'm being realistic here 🙂 4. I hoard stuff, got that from both my mom AND dad. When I discover a new interest or hobby, I totally LOSE myself in it. I have to have everything there is about it, do it all. At first it was like that with love. I lost myself when I fell in love with my hubby, it took me severaly years to find myself again. Now, my attic is like a scrapbookstore, bead-paradise, fabric-factory, I own 9 Blythes and am building them a huge house with everything in it (they own more than 100 pairs of shoes!), I have a dragon collection of over 250 items, etc. I own over 120 necklaces, 100 bracelets and a gazillion earrings. When I love an actor/singer (and yes, I fall in love frequently with those unobtainable men) (another quirky thing about me) I buy all their CDs, DVDs, posters, etc. Keanu Reeves, Hugh Jackman, Jared Leto, Jensen Ackles are/were all men that rock(ed) my boat! 5. Even though I LOVE classical ballet, I'm no good at it. It just keeps enchanting me, it's like magic to me. Kind of like a (sweet sorrowful) memory from a past. I started ballet again when I was 24 and I even got to do points, but I look like a huge hippo. 6. I suffer from endometriosis which is a pain in the belly, litterally. It has prevented me from having kids for almost 5 years now. I am undergoing my 4th IVF attempt as we speak, and hope to become a mother one day soon. 7. I love all things England. The language, the island itself. Hubby and I went there 3 times and every time I saw those 'white cliffs of Dover' from the boat, it felt like coming home. I love Arthurian legends as well, hence my name, Lady Guinevere. 8. I wish I weren't so lazy all the time. Instead of hanging on the couch watching telly, I wish I had more energy. My creative juices don't flow as much as I want them too, it's like they're linked to my hormones. I want to scrap and sew every day, and fast, but I can't.
