What they don’t tell you about dieting after 50…

A recent study conducted by the University of California examined what happens to most people when they try to lose weight by “dieting” or eating less.

hey found that at least one third of the dieters (but often as high as two thirds) would regain more weight than they lost in the first place… leaving them worse off than when they started. (perhaps you’ve been there too?)

The study also pointed out that most scientific research conducted on “dieting” tends to underestimate how counter-productive it really is for most people… because most of the research conducted on dieting is structured in a way that highlights the very few people who succeed…

And just avoids discussing the many people (often the majority of people) who are left worse off than when they started. Leading them to the conclusion that…

“There is actually very little scientific support for the notion that calorie-restricting diets lead to lasting weight loss.”

And… to many of us who’ve been helping people lose weight for years… and… to many women over 50 who’ve struggled through that same problem for years… that conclusion isn’t surprising.

While the mainstream media will insist you’re overweight and struggling with belly fat because you’re lazy and eat too much… more and more scientific evidence is showing that being overweight is NOT just a matter of diet and exercise. Nor is it simply a matter of bad genetics…

There are a number of other underlying challenges that – for most women over 50 – make it difficult or even downright impossible to lose belly fat!

No matter how much “dieting” they do…

For example…

  • A joint research project between the Washington University School of Medicine, the University of Toronto and the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology found they could make mice gain 60% more body fat and become diabetic in 14 days simply by changing their gut bacteria… despite the fact they also lowered their calorie intake at the same time.
  • Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have identified 26 species of bacteria in the human gut that are linked to inflammation and obesity. And several other studies have demonstrated that inflammation is part of the reason women over 50 struggle with stubborn belly fat.
  • The University of Iceland Department of Medicine also found that the COMMON viruses helicobactor pylori and Chlamydia pneumoniae contribute to gaining weight no matter what you eat. And several researchers at the University of Maryland found the same for the other COMMON virus Toxoplasma Gondii.
  • The University of University of Göteborg, Sweden found that if your body has high levels of adrenal hormones (such as the hormone “cortisol”) your body will store fat around the middle more than anywhere else.

    The University of Tokyo Women’s Medical College came to the same conclusion.

    And these high levels of the hormone cortisol can be triggered in your body by many things such as not getting enough sleep, hormonal imbalances, stress, anxiety, nutrient deficiencies, and ANY kind of inflammation…

    Because while inflammation is part of your body’s natural response when something goes wrong… if your body has too much inflammation, it causes your adrenal glands to produce more and more cortisol in response… causing weight gain around the middle and stubborn belly fat.

  • The Pennington Biomedical Research Center conducted a scientific study that identified 10 alternative causes of obesity that usually get ignored. Including microorganisms, epigenetics, lack of quality sleep, taking certain pharmaceuticals, and being exposed to endocrine disrupting chemicals (such as common household cleaning products, paint, and many other chemicals we are exposed to on a regular basis. And some of us are exposed to these more than others).

    So it wasn’t surprising they concluded: “If infections [amongst other things] contribute to human obesity, then entirely different prevention and treatment strategies could be needed to address [them].”

  • The University of Gothenburg, Sweden found that increased intestinal permeability (or “leaky gut”) is linked to stubborn belly fat that won’t seem to go away no matter how hard you try.

    And leaky gut is quite common. In fact, in modern countries such as the United States, Australia, and Western Europe, just about everyone has it some degree. It’s just a matter of how bad it is… and if it’s bad enough to screw with your weight.

    What leads to leaky gut? Having high levels of the hormone cortisol is one of the main causes. As well as eating certain foods (such as wheat and other whole grains) that damage your gut.

  • The University of California found that high cortisol levels also trigger more cravings and a bigger appetite… leading to eating more comfort foods…
  • Sahlgrenska University Hospital found that a number of factors can elevate the levels of cortisol in your body. Including fungal and yeast infections such as candida albicans. And bacterial infections in a woman’s digestive tract. As well as heavy metal toxicity and biotoxins. (to name just a few)…

    And – in the end – high cortisol levels means more problems with belly fat.

  • The National Institute of Health found that having high cortisol levels also makes you more likely to contract pathogens that cause obesity such as viruses, bacteria and other infections (and having high cortisol levels is common amongst women over 50)…

Most weight loss “experts” insist belly fat is purely about genetics. That you can’t choose where the fat comes off your body. And you have to simply keep losing weight until your body eventually gets around to taking it off the middle. But more and more scientific evidence is showing that is simply not true.

It’s true that body fat does tend to come off some places before others.

But if you have other underlying challenges (as most women over 50 do)… it’s unlikely that any amount of dieting will “eventually” work out…

Because gaining weight is actually a later symptom of these other problems. So until you fix the problems that caused the weight gain in the first place… your body will “gravitate” towards being overweight…

And several of these underlying challenges cause your body to push everything towards the middle (such as having high levels of the hormone cortisol as mentioned above)… making it almost impossible to lose belly fat…

So until these other challenges are resolved, “dieting” may help you lose a few pounds. But as soon as you go back to eating like a normal person (and quit counting calories), your mid-section will simply re-inflate… often leaving you worse off than when you started…

And several of these underlying challenges affect women more than men…

While others are more common the longer you’ve been alive. Because you’ve had more chances to be exposed to them.

So what works for a twenty-or-thirty-something is simply NOT what works for women over 50…

Because we face unique challenges. And the mainstream approaches to losing weight just do NOT take into account our specific needs…

Then when their voodoo diets fail to deliver on what they promised, they just blame the women themselves and tell them they aren’t doing it right… and make their lives a living nightmare… when their diet failed to address the real underlying problems…

It’s absurd!

And while many women will write this off as “just a natural part of aging”… we’ve all seen many women our age who are still trim and in shape… so you may be beginning to wonder how you can become one of them…

And – along those lines – the number of calories you consume … and the number of calories you burn… does matter. But it is only part of the equation…

For example, many of these underlying challenges make you more likely to eat more (and several of them practically force you to eat more). And give you STRONG cravings for sugar and refined carbohydrates…

And while the mainstream media will blame you and tell you it’s your fault… you may be beginning to wonder if that’s a bit “nutty”… and that it’d – perhaps – make more sense to fix the underlying challenges that cause the cravings in the first place…

And this is all made worse by the fact that… many supposedly “healthy” diets that get thrown around out there ignore these biological facts… and – in many cases…

actually make it HARDER to lose belly fat!

For example – According to Lawrence Wilson MD, Anne Louise Gittleman PhD, and several other veteran health practitioners – the common advice to avoid animal proteins, eat more whole grains and eat mostly vegetables…

leads to chronic copper poisoning…

Causing symptoms such as extreme fatigue and muscle weakness, anxiety, panic, a racing mind, insomnia, roller coaster emotions, skin problems, trouble with digestion, difficulty digesting meat, thyroid disorders, and immune system disorders. And it also makes you more susceptible to getting the parasites, viruses and pathogens that cause inflammation, belly fat and obesity!

And this hidden cause of weight gain, extreme fatigue, and stubborn belly fat usually gets missed by your doctor…

Because standard medical testing only looks at the level of copper in your blood… while the copper poisoning is stored inside of your body’s tissues. So it requires an entirely different form of testing in order to detect it.

And – as many women have found out first hand – as soon as they knocked off the mainstream diet and took steps to detox the copper, their symptoms improved dramatically…

And this copper build-up is common amongst women over 50. Several health practitioners have commented that more than 70% of their female patients have a severe case. And an even greater number have it to at least some small degree.

And that isn’t the only hidden cause of unexplained weight gain that usually gets overlooked by your doctor…

For example, many women suffer from hypothyroidism symptoms such as fatigue, constipation, bad skin, hair loss, unexplained weight gain and difficulty losing weight. But many doctors will – unfortunately – write these symptoms off as being “just part of menopause” and send you home… or they’ll give the standard medical test that is often false. Allow me to explain.

If you have an issue with your liver or gut, your body is unable to use most of your thyroid hormones. So even if their test shows your thyroid hormone levels are okay… your body is unable to use any of it. And so many women are – unfortunately – sent home being told “it’s all in their head”… when they really do have a thyroid problem wreaking havoc on their ability to lose weight.

If you want to hear more of the science behind this, I recommend the book “Why do I still have thyroid symptoms when my lab tests are normal?”

Yes, it’s unfortunate. But…

these and many other underlying causes of obesity often go unnoticed…

Because science evolves very quickly, but it usually takes up to 15 years for a new discovery to be well known in the mainstream. Even by doctors.

This can all seem a bit overwhelming. But while there are many possible hidden causes of unexplained weight gain and belly fat… for most women, just a few of these hidden causes account for most of the problems they face.

Here’s what you need know: If you’ve tried to lose weight (particularly around the middle)… but it didn’t budge an inch… or… you managed to finally scrape some of it off, but it just came back a few weeks later… it’s important to resolve the real underlying problems causing it…

And soon…

Because these underlying challenges tend to get a LOT worse over time if you don’t give them a helping hand. So it would likely become even harder to lose belly fat than it is now.

Now there is one underlying root cause that is worse than all the other ones combined.

This much bigger underlying root cause not only keeps women over 50 from losing stubborn stomach fat and sticking with it, but it is also a major contributor to high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and other horrible health conditions.

If you tried hard to lose weight but the scale won’t budge…it may not be that you didn’t exercise enough or didn’t eat healthy enough.

It may be a hidden underlying issue that makes it so hard for many women over 50+ to lose stubborn fat…no matter how hard you try.

You may be doing everything else right, but unless you fix this key part, you’re fighting an uphill battle that is almost impossible to win.

To keep you as unbiased as possible, let’s go through some of the symptoms first to see if you are affected…

Do you suffer from cravings for sugar, bread, pasta and other high carb foods?

Lack of energy?

Joint pain?

Constipation, bloating, gas or other digestive issues?

Headaches, migraines, brain fog, dizziness?

Loss of your sex drive?

Anxiety, irritability, memory loss or depression?

Insomnia or other sleep-related issues?

Do you have a hard time losing weight?

Not all all of these symptoms will apply to you, but if some of them do, then you’ll want to pay very close attention now.

This may sound hard to believe that all these symptoms are related, but new research is just starting to catch up and show undeniable proof that this is exactly what’s happening.

There is a silent epidemic going on.

Leading experts estimate that it affects 8 out of 10 women over 50.

It’s the reason why it’s so hard for most women over 50 to lose weight.

It plays a big part in cravings, and it makes it so hard for you to stick with a plan.

It’s the cause of many seemingly unrelated health issues.

It’s a major contributor to many horrible health conditions including diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

This information is what really every woman over 50 needs to know about.

It’s hot off the press and it hasn’t made it into mainstream diet advice yet.

They’ll eventually figure it out in a few years.

But you don’t have that time.

You need to get this information now.

It’s an incredibly complex topic that we’ve simplified for you, into a step-by-step guide.

It’s called “The Silent Epidemic” and in it you’ll learn the *real* reason that makes it so hard for women over 50 to lose weight.
