Can you lose weight without exercise

Weight Loss Starts With Food & Mood

Last updated 

Can you lose weight without exercise? Over the last two decades, rates of obesity have risen dramatically. At the same time, food quality has dropped significantly. So, despite being overweight, you can become malnourished. 

Let’s take a fresh look at the reasons we find it so hard to lose weight, and dispel the myth that exercise is the answer. 

Micro-malnutrition impacts 92% of American adults[1] and 56% of children.[2] Without essential nutrients, the body cannot thrive and will hold onto resources (including fat). Your body needs support to bust the bulge; targeted nutrition and cellular cleansing mobilize the fat trapped in stressed-out adipose cells. 

Energy and Enthusiasm

Many of the missing micronutrients are critical for energy production. For example, the mineral magnesium is required for 300 biological processes involved in mood management, cellular transport and metabolism. When your body doesn’t have enough nutritional building blocks it will ‘slow down’ to preserve energy.

A lack of nutrients will make you feel sluggish. Physically, micro-malnutrition restricts the production of energy in your cells. A lack of nutrients also reduces the rate at which your immune system can build new cells and healthy organelles (including the mitochondria that make all your energy).

In just twenty years obesity has risen by a third to 42% of American adults and 9.2% of the US population are severely obese. [3] During the same period depression has increased significantly and rates of stress have soared. [4] Health-related stress alone impacts nearly half the adult population (46%)[5] and the stress hormone, cortisol, makes us store fat. 

Has the entire Western world ‘suddenly’ become fat and lazy? Or (as data suggests) has the decline in nutrients reduced our energy, and devastated our mood (making weight loss much more difficult!)? Fortunately, metabolic research has revealed that reducing toxicity, and increasing nutrition, is an effective, safe, and more enjoyable way to lose weight.[6]

Nutritional Information Overload

Some in the diet and fitness industries promote ideologies that work against weight loss. When you discover the myth of calories (your body is not a furnace!) and the real role of fat (it stores toxins!) everything becomes easier. Food is much more than fuel, it contains complex nutritional signals:

  • Before you start to eat, the look and smell of food starts a sensory conversation with your brain.
  • When you start eating, the process of chewing and swallowing activates multiple hormones. 
  • As your stomach expands, it sends signals to the brain to control hunger and digestion.
  • The digestive system responds with hormones that inform the brain about progress and nutrition.
  • Hormones travel through the bloodstream and reach parts of the brain that control hunger. 
  • As we continue to eat, these hormones gradually change to signal that we have had enough to eat. 
  • After eating, the body slowly assimilates the nutrients, aided by the bacteria that digest them.

Unfortunately, we eat past the point of hormonal satiety because the nutritional, digestive, and biological signals get confused. Addictive sugar, emotional eating, fatigue, dehydration, peer pressure, and a lack of essential nutrients mean the appetite gets stuck ‘on’. Missing micro-nutrients drive overconsumption in an attempt to fulfill our critical nutritional needs.



Free the Fat!

Your body is incredibly intelligent. The hypothesis that we store fat as spare energy (enough for several years!) is based on false nutritional assumptions. When you force the body to lose weight by restricting food it increases toxicity, making you feel miserable.[7] 

Fortunately, there is a better way: Dr. Sebi developed supplements that support weight loss by:

  • Detoxing toxins that drive weight gain.
  • Reducing cytokines disrupting digestion.
  • Increasing nutrient absorption in the gut.
  • Feeding bacteria that process nutrients.
  • Elevating feel-good neurotransmitters.
  • Replacing essential micro-nutrients.
  • Eliminating addictive cravings.
  • Supporting a healthy metabolism.
  • Ensuring you feel nutritionally full!

Do you want an effective weight loss strategy that removes toxicity while building health? Restricting food makes you miserable, and exercise is impossible when your cells can’t make enough energy.

But it is possible to fight the flab, and let go of fat, when your body is well-nourished.

Toxicity drives appetite, and waistlines while preventing us from losing weight.

Harness your hormones, digestion, and bacteria for metabolic fitness and enhanced energy.

Being fully nourished drives natural weight loss while reducing appetite and eliminating toxicity.

Take control of your appetite, adipose, and anxiety with herbs that optimize your entire body.
