Yeast, The Weight Loss Enemy

So, you’ve been trying to lose weight; you exercise and eat well-balanced meals. However, many of us struggle with losing weight whether it is 10 pounds or 100 pounds; it seems that no matter what we do we just can’t seem to shed those extra pounds. Your problem could be attributed to yeast!  It is a known fact that yeast overgrowth is the underlying cause to many health problems; fatigue, irritability, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal bloating, mood swings, depression, anxiety, dizziness. And, yeast can also prevent the thyroid and adrenal gland from functioning properly; these glands are responsible for our metabolism and weight. You may have an overgrowth of yeast if you are: challenged by sugar and carbohydrate cravings or cravings for foods such as wine, bread and cheese; migraines or headaches; a whitish coating on the tongue; inability to lose weight; tired all the time; often feel spaced out; feel bloated and have flatulence. These symptoms can all be related to a yeast overgrowth such as Candida Albicans. Sugar and carbohydrates can be a major contributor to people’s inability to lose weight, and yeast thrives on sugar and carbohydrates in order to metabolize. When we have an overgrowth of yeast organisms, and we deprive these organisms the things they survive off of, it can cause a type of withdraw syndrome that produces continuous cravings for sugar and carbs. It’s important to note here that cravings are a positive biological reaction, however, yeast organisms deprive the cells of the sugar they need so cravings for sugar never ceases, thus causing the problems we see with consuming too much sugar. Yeast is such an insidious organism that it has found ways to ensure its survival in our body! We all carry the yeast organism in our gut, and if the body is functioning properly, we also carry the proper amount of bacteria in our guts, to help control the yeast. It’s easy to see how yeast could be the culprit to our weight gain and inability to lose weight, and getting yeast under control can definitely have many positive side effects: weight loss, increased energy, clearer skin, and a general feeling of well being. By normalizing ones chemistry, you are better able to maintain the proper levels of yeast, leading to a better chance at shedding those extra pounds.
