Early this morning, while out mountain biking, I was reminded of a life changing conversation I had years ago with one of my favorite patients.
She came in, as most do, looking to lose a good amount of weight, increase energy and get off a few meds. She had previously worked with other Phoenix weight-loss “specialists” and lost a few pounds but always gained it back…
“Why do you think that happened?” I asked her…
She took a deep breath, And had a deeply unsettling answer..
She went on to explain the low calorie, low carb, (low taste, flavor and just about every other good thing) point counting, fasting type program... Which to be honest I don’t think anyone could stick to…
So here she was beating herself up like so many before her…
She looked me straight in the eyes and said you are my last hope . This is the last thing I will ever do…
OK no pressure I thought to myself but I knew
I HAD TO HELP HER.
And that’s exactly what I did… by not putting her on any kind of diet, but instead focusing on restoring healthy internally balance…
We Have Been Lied To
We were told if we go on a diet and lose weight will get healthier, get off our meds; have more energy and feel terrific! yet it almost never works that way…
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in 30 years of practice it’s that first and foremost you have to focus on getting healthy a side effect of which will be weight loss and a bunch of other amazing benefits!
Anne came into my office 40lbs overweight…
3 months later she was at her goal weight, off a number of medications, and with a new found passion for life!

How would you like to lose 10, 20 even 50 or more pounds and look and feel better than you have in years?
How about having the energy to keep up with your kids or grandkids and say goodbye to those prescriptions medications without roller coaster diets and constant effort?
If you’re like most people I see at my clinic Platinum Wellness, you answered yes to that question. Unfortunately very few people have the correct formula to lose the weight and keep it off.
While they might lose some weight with the latest diet, they end up gaining more back the second they stop.
They try diet after diet, pill after pill, plan after plan, and then cross their fingers and hope and pray that this time will work better than the last. The average woman diets 28 years of her life… OMG!
Hungry when you think you shouldn’t be? There might be a reason that’s never even crossed your mind. It could have to do with your environment, diet or your own body. Consider everything mentioned below, and if you have questions or think this applies to you let us know and we can help!
Why Am I Hungry? Weird Things That Increase Your Appetite
“Why am I hungry … like all of the time?” Is that a question you’re asking a lot lately? Weight loss is a bit more complicated than “calories in, calories out.” While that is certainly important, getting your hormones under control is key to stifle an out-of-control appetite.
Luckily, you’re not destined for a life of counting calories (and feeling starved all the time). Eating well, exercising and moving more during the day are key ways to lose weight. But there are other ways to start chipping away at those last few pounds, too. Here are some weird things that make you hungry. And how to start taking steps to reverse overeating …
3 Weird Triggers
Eating salt makes you thirsty, right? Nope. A team of researchers from Vanderbilt University found that while excess salt intake can make you thirsty initially, after that your body actually starts producing and storing more of its own water. This forces the body to actually use a lot of fuel to break down muscle mass, fueling your hunger. This breakthrough finding changes what we know about salt and hunger and sheds new light on overeating and its harmful side effects. (1)
If you’re looking to lose weight fast, getting your salt intake under control is key. Also consider using sea salt.
2. Air Conditioning
There’s also a theory that air condition primes our body for overeating and weight gain. People seem to eat more in cold temperatures. Why? The body’s trying to stay warm. I get using air conditioning to avoid extreme and dangerous heat, but I wouldn’t make super cold air conditioning a habit if you’re trying to lose weight. (2, 3)
3. Certain Drugs
Certain medications could be fueling your appetite. Some allergy meds, insulin, steroids and even some blood pressure meds and anti-depressants are known to trigger hunger and weight gain. While you shouldn’t just get off of your meds without talking to your doctor,healing leaky gut can go a long way in actually reversing allergies and a long list of other symptoms. (Rather than just covering them up.) Working on gut repair can begin the process of healing the root cause of many ailments.(4)
How to Get Your Hunger Under Control
You can take several approaches to get reset your food cravings — and finally have some solutions for your “Why I am hungry?” question. You may want to work with your doctor to ID any hormone imbalances. But regardless of that, here are other things you can do:
Work natural appetite suppressants into your routine. These include green tea extract, spicy foods, saffron extract and high-fiber foods.
Learn how to work with grapefruit essential oil. Just the scent of grapefruit oil excites sympathetic nerves that supply the brown adipose tissue and adrenal glands, which may help stimulate weight loss.
Exercise regularly. Mix it up with burst training and other forms of exercise you enjoy.
