Setting Sail with dynamite

I have attempted multiple times to eat right along with the exercise but have become discouraged and disheartened way too easily.  It's an all or nothing.  I feel like I need to do something to get to my desired weight and then I will be able to keep my weight there with the healthy eating and exercise.  A discovery I have made with my research about fat deposits, I think will help.

"Abnormal fat deposits are the locked away sources of energy. Also known as localized fats, they get stored in different body parts such as buttocks, knees, chin, abdomen and flabby arms. These fatty tissues can grow as a permanent part of the body causing obesity as they do not contribute in metabolism.

Abnormal fat metabolism is a distant thing as medical studies say that these rigid fatty tissues remain intact during metabolism. The fat distribution plays a very important role in overall body weight. Many diet programs fails to convert abnormal fat into calories as they can only burn the structural and normal fat. Hence, our body does not respond in losing the localized fat away, no matter how less they consume and workout."

The structural and normal fat are healthy and necessary for daily life.  Therefore, when the person has finished "dieting" they often put the weight back on because they lost the wrong type of "fat weight".
This sounds very disheartening - after all if no matter how hard I try I can't get my body to use the abnormal fat, then what hope is there that I will lose the weight and keep it off?

hCG is short for human chorionic gonadotropin also known as the pregnancy hormone - the hormone tested for to tell a woman she is pregnant.  "hCG is responsible for making the abnormal fat reserves of the body available to be burned as fuel".  This occurs naturally in pregnancy to help nourish the baby, especially if Mum doesn't eat right or can't eat right because of vomiting!

Other things I have found is the hypothalamus is currently my enemy and I need to retrain it.  The hypothalamus is the control center of all autonomic regulatory activities of the body.  It has been said that the hypothalamus is the brain of the brain.  When the hypothalamus is not working properly, food becomes increasingly more important, but increasingly more unfulfilling.  We end up never satisfied with the foods which we have eaten, gradually eating more and more to try to compensate for whatever is lacking.  The hypothalamus is also responsible for governing metabolism - speeding it up or slowing it down.  It is the hypothalamus' job to make the body salivate for an apple, rather than a piece of chocolate cake.  If the hypothalamus is working normally, then a person will be more inclined to crave a nutritionally well-balanced diet.  Food that is void of nutrition will not have the same pull or crave-producing impact.

The catch to retraining my hypothalamus is a hormone called leptin.  "Leptin is like a messenger between the hypothalamus and the fat stores.  When your body gets to the point where it has stored enough fat, leptin runs to the hypothalamus to tell it to stop collecting the fat."  Essentially translated into telling you, you're full and stop eating.  However, when the hypothalamus is not working properly it doesn't understand the msg from leptin and keeps telling you to eat and stores more and more fat.  Leptin is produced by abnormal fat - so the more fat stored the more leptin there is and the more leptin the more you eat, 'causing more fat and the vicious cycle continues.  So, to get my hypothalamus retrained, I have to lower the amount of Leptin in my body and that is caused by the abnormal fat.  So, bottom line until I get rid of the abnormal fat stored in my body, it is going to be a losing uphill battle.

So, how can I get rid of this fat?  As I mentioned earlier the hormone hCG breaks down the fat and makes it available for use.  There are several hCG diets out there but I decided to use the dynamite 180.  A lot of the quotes are from there.  You can visit it here to get more info.  


Bottom line I have 108,000 calories of unused energy that I am about to tap into!
