If you are suffering from unwanted weight gain that you’re struggling to get rid of, then you will want to choose a safe natural weight loss. These natural helpers are NOT diet tricks either, in case you’re wondering. Though, once you’ve tried these, it wouldn’t surprise me if you started saying these helpers work like magic.
All these 4 natural weight loss helpers will do is simply improve your digestion system process your food in order to gain maximum nutrients and minerals from what you eat. Imagine no more feeling guilty for what you eat … and no more bloating from carbohydrates (carbs) either.
In this day and age, with all the fake health foods and beverages, exercise is no longer enough to keep those excess pounds off. Believe me, I’m slowly developing horrible love handles and I used to be told I was “too skinny” and needed to put on some weight.
Bet you’re thinking to yourself right now that it’s not possible to lose weight without going on an extreme diet … or cutting out sugars and sweeteners completely. The good news is, “yes, it is!”
Personally, I hate diets. All these new diets that pop up, promising that we’ll lose those extra pounds … HUH!
Don’t get me wrong, dieting would be a great way to give our bodies a break from bad foods … but … without discipline dieting is only temporary. Most times, our dieting leads us to that well-known roller coaster of losing weight and then gaining it back.
Obviously, dieting is not the best way to slim down.
Instead of doing something temporary, why not take a lifestyle approach that works with your busy life, doesn’t require drastic change, and gets you the results you want to see and feel. And, most importantly … that it be easy to maintain.
Surprisingly enough, the lifestyle approach I’m about to share with you here will offer you fat loss faster than crash dieting … and the best part … this will require one simple change that will take you just 3 minutes a day … AND, give your body the support to burn fat all day long.
Sure, weight loss goes slower when taking a lifestyle approach, but it sure beats the crash dieting roller coaster and is easier on your body too. Weight coming off slower means it will stay off longer … so … which would you prefer?
If you’re expecting this lifestyle approach will have you losing 20 pounds of weight in a week or so, then STOP right now. Don’t waste your time … leave this post right here. Losing weight quickly is not possible to do in a safe manner and not possible without surgery.
However, if you would like to watch your weight get a bit lower and lower every day, giving your body the best chance to keep the weight off that you loss, and makes you feel great about the way you look, and STILL enjoy your favourite foods, then please, pay very close attention to what I am about to share with you now.
You are urged to combine these 4 natural weight loss helpers I’m about to share with you, with daily physical activity for maximum results. However, if you feel your busy schedule may get in your way with daily exercise then it is even more critical that you learn about these helpers.
This information has taken Dr. Amy Lee over 2 decades of helping overweight patients to discover and it has never been shared before by any weight loss system, diet plan, workout regime, or anything else. Most approaches to weight loss goes after the body fat directly. They either tell you to burn if off with intense exercise or they tell you to starve it off with an extreme diet.
Instead, here’s how you can start at the source; your digestive system. Your digestive system exists to help you process food. Food contains the building blocks of your body’s tissues and is the source of your body’s energy. However, today’s food is very different from that of our ancestor’s.
As I have already shared with you in the 5 harmful foods, do you remember what was mentioned as to what your body does with any unknown substances?
If you said, turns it into fat, then you are correct.
So, if you have found yourself having less energy and gaining more weight, then your digestive system is to blame.
Weight loss expert Dr. Jeremy Webster states: “Poor digestion is one of the common causes of weight gain. If you can not breakdown your food, absorb your nutrients and eliminate toxins effectively, your metabolism will suffer and you will most likely gain weight”
Here are a few more warning signs that your digestive system may be responsible for excess body fat:
If you suffer from any of these things then your digestive system needs more support.
The good news is that once you start giving your system the support it needs, you many notice more than just fat loss …maybe even the disappearance of other bothersome issues. It’s amazing how much improving your digestive system can improve every area of your body.
These fat loss helpers are actually digestive system helpers as they help to fight the four most common enemies of poor digestion which are:

Though a funny story, this video serves to demonstrate just how powerful food preservatives can be … and they’re not just in McDonald’s foods either. Much of the foods we encounter every day is the same, be it breads, meats, canned foods … anything that big food manufacturers want to stay fresh longer, so that they will have a bigger window to sell it to you and a better chance at making a profit.
Now, what preservatives do is prevent bacteria from breaking down food. This makes it very difficult for our stomachs to break food down as well … or even know that it is food at all. The preservatives form a block around your food … and, if you remember what your body does with unknown substances … it stores it as fat … or, it runs it straight out of your body undigested.
This is why preservatives are responsible for many digestive problems you may have experienced; too many trips to the bathroom, bloating and gas, heartburn or indigestion … or … most often … constipation.
One thing that doesn’t help us is how fast we eat our food these days. You may have heard that you’re supposed to chew each bit of food at least 40 times. This actually could help us against preservatives, however, in today’s busy world many of us have forgotten.
Another issue with preservative is that they make it hard for our body’s to get all of the nutrients out of our food. That could put your body in the mode of fat storage. When you’re not getting enough nutrients, your body holds on to the fat it has just in case nutrients stop coming in. It’s the body’s protection mechanism that makes it almost impossible to lose weight.
If you’ve tried dieting or exercising but still couldn’t lose those stubborn pounds, this is probably why.
Fortunately, Mother Nature has a solution to help fight preservatives. This will also help you if you’re a fast eater.
You can take 3 powerful nutrients called Amylase, Bromelain, and Lipase before you eat. These 3 nutrients are digestive enzymes powerful natural extracts that cut through preservatives and aid your body in the process of digesting food.
However, do not just go and grab any bottle of any digestive enzymes off of the shelf as not all are created equal. It is critical that you get one that contains these three nutrients: Amylase, Bromelain, and Lipase, as each one plays an important role in breaking down proteins, carbs, and fats. Bromelain also helps to fight inflammation and support digestion of grains.
If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities and wealthy folks stay so thin, well, there’s a good chance that one of the tricks they use is to carry these 3 digestive enzymes around with them and take them with EVERY meal.
These 3 enzymes allow you to get maximum amounts of nutrients out of everything you eat … yeah, even carbs.
That makes these 3 enzymes three of 4 natural fat loss helpers, and they ARE proven to work.
One study conducted in 2001, followed 260 people using digestive enzymes over a 7 month period. 90% reported experiencing positive results which included weight loss and improvements with food tolerance, digestion, energy level, sleep, and overall appearance. A 90% success rate when it comes to any study is absolutely phenomenal.
Now to let you know about Candida and it is NOT a helper. It is a form of yeast that lives in your digestive tract along with 25 trillion other bacteria. It’s okay to have a small amount of Candida in your body. However, can you guess what Candida feeds on?
If you guessed sugar and sweeteners, you’re absolutely right.
Sugar feeds Candida to the point where this yeast tends to overgrow in your stomach, and we all know how much sugar we in North America are consuming every single day. When Candida overgrows they begin to spill through your gastrointestinal tract and into your blood stream.
These yeast and fungi particles can wreck chaos throughout your entire body, depriving you of energy, slowing down your metabolism, causing brain fog and hurting your concentration. They’re also the culprit for causing yeast infections. And, when you have gas or bloating, it’s often because these bad bacteria are feasting on the sugar in something you ate.
However … and here’s the scary part … these bacteria have also been known to hijack hormones and create cravings you may not have had before. Candida and its ugly bacteria friends force you to crave the foods they want to feast on. So, the next time you find yourself craving carbs or sweets, know that it’s probably just those bad bacteria down there yelling “feed me more sugar!” This is why sugar and high fructose corn syrup are so addictive.
These bad bacteria also make it much harder for the good bacteria to get the nutrients out of your food. You would think it would be hard enough with all of the preservatives, now your good bacteria has to fight your way through this bad fungus too.
Dr. Carolyn Dean and William Crook declared in their 2005 book, The Yeast Connection and Women’s Health, “Most women don’t have even an inkling that their symptoms could be caused by yeast overgrowth in their bodies. The number of women suffering in silence, not even knowing what is really wrong – and blaming themselves for failing – is, I believe, literally numbered in the millions. Millions of women who can’t lose weight and have no idea why!”
This could be even more true for men. Fortunately, as bad as this problem can be, the solution is easy; probiotics (the 4th natural fat loss helper). Probiotics are clusters of good bacteria that you can now take in the billions in one little capsule that go into your digestive tract and help against the bad bacteria.
The good news is you don’t need to get rid of all of the bad bacteria to start getting your digestive system working properly again. You can start burning fat faster just by simply getting the right ratio of bacteria. It’s said that a good ratio is about 75% good bacteria verses 25% bad bacteria.
Professor of Nutrition and Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School Dr. W. Allan Walker has stated: “Evidence from clinical research demonstrates that adding ‘good’ bacteria to the diet promotes a healthy digestive and immune system.”
Dr. Michael F. Roizen, New Your Times best-selling author and Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic agrees, stating: “Taking probiotics is a habit that can really benefit the digestive system, which is intricately connected to our overall health.”
Probiotics certainly are more beneficial than a multivitamin, as the benefits are felt right away, and all throughout your body. Many are surprised to learn that balancing the bacteria in your digestive tract will often even boost your sex drive. Every part of your body begins to work faster.
Beware, not all probiotics are created equal. Given the surge in popularity, many companies are releasing probiotics containing cheap strains that dissolve in your stomach just before they reach the critical intestinal tract.
New York Times best-selling author of the book, Grain Brain, Dr. David Perlmutter recommends you choose a probiotic that contains at least 10 unique strains of bacteria, and at least 10 billion colony forming units per capsule.
Now that you are now armed with this information, you too can choose safe natural weight loss simply by treating your digestive system better.

Given my passion for genealogy, is it any wonder that I eventually wanted to publish my work? Learning to use a personal computer was a natural step once I was introduced it in the 1990s. Then the internet offered a second means to "publish" and now, here I am with a personal blog.
