Functional Fat Loss Webinar!

Webinar blackboard sign
by Sean Croxton and Reed Davis

By popular demand!

Last night, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition founder, Reed Davis, myself, and about 400 attendees got together for this year’s first FREE webinar. The topic: Functional Fat Loss.

What does Functional Fat Loss mean?

Well, it means that fat loss is not just a matter of diet and exercise. As Reed pointed out early in his presentation, fat accumulation can be a symptom of some underlying — and often unaddressed — dysfunction within the hormonal, digestive, detoxification, and immune systems.

Diet and exercise are just two pieces of a MUCH larger puzzle.

For example, did you know that 60-percent of your thyroid hormone is activated in your liver? This particular hormone holds great influence over your metabolism. So if your liver is clogged up — due to toxins from food, personal care and cleaning products, as well as the general environment — this can put the brakes on your fat loss goals!

As a matter of fact, another 20-percent of thyroid is activated by the bacteria in your gut. The problem is that most of us have imbalanced gut flora, thus compromised metabolisms.

I’ll be honest with you. While we intended this webinar to be for the general population, Reed got a bit carried away and was a bit too technical and jargon-y. That’s my fault for not reviewing the slides beforehand. My bad.

Due to this, Reed and I have decided to record a simplified version of the presentation. I’ll be posting it to this blog as soon as it is done.

So if you’re relatively new to this functional stuff, this may not be the webinar for you. But if you’re a trainer, health practitioner, or a nerd like me, this will be like brain candy for you.

Be sure to stick around to the end, when Reed and I offer you a $300 discount on the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition certification course. Use the coupon code UW300 at www.fdncourse.com.

If you’re interested in finding an FDN practitioner to work with, you may locate one HERE.

And last but not least, I will be hosting a Q&A session with Reed TOMORROW morning at 8am PT/11am ET on the radio show.

Happy Friday, friends.

Chasing Symptoms: The H.I.D.D.E.N. Truth!

seek_truth_by_beautifullyevilby Sean Croxton

I got a text from my cousin yesterday.

He was hoping I could share with him a good — and of course, FAST — way to lose weight.

You can probably imagine what his New Year’s Resolution is.

Exactly how I was going to answer this ultra-loaded question in a text message was beyond me. And as you and I know, long-term fat loss is not something to be done as quickly as possible.

The best I could do was send him the download link to my ebook. Because the fact of the matter is that I have no idea WHY my cousin is overweight in the first place.

And that’s what I want to talk about today.

Everyday, my inbox is flooded with questions from viewers, readers, and listeners regarding specific symptoms and health conditions.

Questions like…

What can I do to keep my skin from breaking out?

I’ve had insomnia for years, and I’ve tried every supplement under the sun. Why doesn’t anything work?

My digestion is horrible. I have (insert symptoms here) almost daily. What do you think is wrong with me? HELP!

About 90-percent of the time, my answer is this…
