Podcast #321:
Can Real Foods Make You Sick?

Tom Malterre

Guest: Tom Malterre

It just won’t go away.

No matter what you try or which doctor you see, you can’t seem to get rid of it.

The headaches. The embarrassing skin breakouts. The foggy brain. The extra weight. The back pain. Or the mucus perpetually lurking in the back of your throat.

In my case, it was the latter. As you may know by now, for years I thought I would be forever plagued by a bad case of the annoying clear-my-throat-every-two-minutes disease.

Eventually I figured it out, removed eggs from my diet, and … poof! Gone.

Glad that’s over.

The only remaining health nuisance was an intermittent pain in my side that was often accompanied by terrible indigestion and a loss of all bass in my voice. Weird, I know.

Then last year I put two and two together and got DAIRY.

Are Food Sensitivies Giving You Belly Fat?

by Sean Croxton

It’s Friday! Since I’ve been busy moving out of my place, we didn’t have a chance to shoot a Friday Fun Day video, BUT I’ve got a humongous truth bomb for you straight from the mouth of Paul Chek!

In the video below, Paul discusses how food sensitivities and intolerances may be contributing to unwanted belly fat.

Food sensitivities are a very stressful to your body. When you consume foods that are firing up your immune system, you get inflammation.

Inflammation begets the release of cortisol (your primary stress hormones) from your adrenal glands.

Cortisol does a couple of things. First off, since your body is under stress it holds onto water. This will give your gut that bloated, puffy look. Second, cortisol increases blood sugar. When blood sugar rises, your pancreas produces insulin. Over time, this may lead to insulin resistance (or make it worse if you already have it). When insulin levels are high, it is impossible to burn body fat!

It’s not all about carbohydrates! There are a myriad of factors that may be contributing to your weight gain and belly fat, including poor sleep, stress, toxicity, and digestive dysfunction.

In my experience, most clients have some kind of gut dysfunction, whether it be parasites, fungal/bacterial overgrowth, or leaky gut. When I run food sensitivity tests, clients are typically sensitive to most of the foods they consume. And you can be sensitive to ANYTHING!

If you’ve already tried everything under the sun to get rid of your belly fat, getting tested for food sensitivities may be a great idea for you.
