Did you know that slow bowel movements can hinder weight loss? Yes, you heard correctly. Not going to the bathroom regularly for a number two can mean that love is handled, abdominal fat and trembling bits cling to life and become part of the family. Let me connect the weight gain points and no poop for you.
In short, constipation causes TOXICITY Y INFLAMMATION. Toxicity and inflammation affect our ability to lose weight in several ways. The following gives you a better understanding of how.
Keep in mind that this list is not exhaustive …
Recycled garbage makes us toxic
When the intestines are not evacuated regularly, the body reabsorbs waste material, hormones and toxins. This recycled garbage leads to a toxic buildup in the intestine.
Excessive growth of bacteria
Bowel pouches, also known as "diverticula" of the colon, can develop when too much pressure is used, "effort" is used to expel the poop. There is often a reduced muscle contraction in the walls of these bags and it is also a place where food and contents accumulate to ferment and rot (rot). Putrefaction of food in the intestine stimulates the growth of dangerous pathogens such as parasites, bacteria and fungi. Some strains of bacteria also produce their own toxins, one of which is harmful lipopolysaccharides (LPS). This excessive growth of bacteria and general toxicity leads to inflammation in the intestine.
Inflammation and leaky gut
Toxins and inflammation in the intestines weaken the intestinal wall and cause a "leaky gut". As the name suggests, the intestinal lining becomes "permeable" and allows food, protein, toxins, LPS, cholesterol and undigested fats to enter the bloodstream and lymph. The immune system then ignites the inflammation in response. This toxicity and systemic inflammation affect the health of other organs, especially those that are weak and has been linked as an early driver of obesity and insulin resistance.
Imbalance of gut bacteria
Toxicity and inflammation in the intestine cause dysbiosis. The dysbiosis usually means that there is an unhealthy balance in the intestinal bacteria. Our intestinal bacteria have an important role in food metabolism, appetite, hormonal regulation, energy use, intestinal lining integrity, health of mood, inflammation and insulin resistance.
Imbalance of blood sugar
Insulin is a hormone that regulates our blood sugar levels. One of its functions is to take the sugar (glucose) we consume and use it for energy. Systemic inflammation blocks insulin receptors, which means that your body becomes resistant to insulin and, as a result, has difficulty converting calories into energy. Instead we accumulate fat. The common signs and symptoms of insulin resistance (IS) are abdominal fat and weight gain. In addition to this, "belly fat" is a biologically active tissue that produces its own hormones and inflammation. So, essentially, abdominal fat creates inflammation and inflammation creates more fat in a vicious circle.
Systemic inflammation (of the hypothalamus) can cause resistance to leptin. Leptin is the hormone that makes you feel full. When we become resistant to leptin, it is difficult to satisfy hunger, feel hungry more frequently and, therefore, tend to consume excessively and gain weight.
The thyroid is very sensitive to toxins. The immune response and inflammation that occur when toxins and protein molecules pass through a "leaky gut" and enter the bloodstream, play a role in the development of autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Hashimoto is the most common form of hypothyroidism. When we are constipated, we do not eliminate hormones well, including estrogen. In contrast, the levels of estrogen in the body increase. The increase in estrogen in the body increases the levels of thyroid-binding globulin (TBG) and decreases the amount of thyroid hormones available to the body. To have a healthy thyroid you must have a healthy intestine. Common signs and symptoms of underactive thyroid and Hashimoto are weight gain, slow metabolism and constipation.
Poor energy for exercise and digestion
The toxicity leads to a deficient supply of oxygen throughout the body. Without oxygen, our energy levels are depleted. An exhausted body does not digest or eliminate toxins well. Also, how attractive will exercise or the best food choice be when you struggle to get through the day?
After reading this, would you agree that moving your bowels regularly and keeping them clean is the first step to long-term weight loss? I certainly do. So, if you have tried several diets and are still struggling to get rid of the unwanted isolation, or if you are about to embark on a weight loss program, ask yourself if the intestines need a little TLC. Guaranteed if the unhappy intestines are not treated, their results will be unsatisfactory or simply non-existent.
