Why People Put on Weight

Culling from over 20 years of experience treating over 11000 patients, at least 50% for weight loss, I have concluded that food allergies, chemical toxicities, systemic candidiasis, dysbiosis and carbohydrate intolerance are among the main culprits for weight gain. This protocol is combined with the fundamentals of the blood type theory as researched and founded by Dr James D’Adamo, the writer of New York Best Seller Eat Right for Your Type for a weight loss and disease prevention programme for an overall healthier lifestyle.

1) Food Allergies – Foods that you react to. If you have a food sensitivity or intolerance than when you taken that offending item, it would often result in your metabolic activity slowing down as well as fluid being retained in an attempt to dilute the circulating toxic substances resulting in weight gain.

2) Chemical Toxicities – Chemical toxins that alter your body’s mechanisms. Toxic substances often impact the hormonal system (slowing it down), increase free radical production which uses up essential nutrients further affecting the rate of carbohydrate utilization. All of them result in weight gain.

3) Systemic Candidiasis – Intestinal overgrowth of candida. The candida overgrowth often generates toxins and increases free radical stress. These have been shown to slow down the metabolic rate resulting in weight gain.

3) Dysbiosis/Leaky Gut – Imbalance in the digestive system because of parasites, candida, insufficient enzymes. The diminished barrier functions of the small intestine with ageing may allow antigenic or mutagenic compounds to reach the systemic circulation. This may offer an explanation for the increased incidence of ageing-related disorders which can result from an increase in the intestinal absorption of environmental macromolecules. Endotoxin (internal production of toxins) production from gut dysbiosis reduces basal metabolic rate resulting in weight gain.

4) Carbohydrate Intolerance – Inability to metabolise carbohydrates. As a result of the insulin mechanism being overreactive , too much carbohydrate is stored away as fat rather than being utilized resulting in weight gain. This is how you can put on more weight with one inappropriate meal a day rather than 6 appropriate meals a day.

5) Lectins and agglutination (cells clumping together) -When cells clump together, they can interfere with proper absorption as well as assimilation. So if you take food that makes your cells clump together, you can put on weight

According to Dr D’Adamo, one effect of consuming specific polysaccharides is to agglutinate and thereby inactivate lectins that would otherwise bind the cells in the gut. Another way of avoiding this scenario is to minimise lectin intake through dietary avoidance of certain foods.

“A very good friend of mine, who was very fit, exercised regularly, had a massive paunch that he could not get rid off. When he was in his twenties, he used to run 15 km a day to lose 18kg of extra weight. Now in his early forties, he was still never able to get rid of it. When I told him that wheat, chicken and corn were his major issues (his blood type was (B+)) he was very surprised because his staple diet revolved around wheat and corn. Needles to say within days of changing his diet, he began to shed his weight effortlessly after a 20 year struggle.”

6) Indoles and indigestion – improper protein digestion resulting in toxicity issues.

7) Polyamines and their influence on health

Both the above factors (6,7) can increase tissue toxicity. Increased tissue toxicity results in weight gain and fluid retention.The principles behind the observations of James D’Adamo were researched by Peter D’Adamo, resulting in the basic theory determining the selection of foods according to blood group. This has been comprehensively illustrated in the series of books, starting with Eat Right 4 Your Type (ER4YT), which lists foods according to their status: beneficial; neutral or avoid.

8.) Hypothyroidism A condition affecting mostly women (especially in middle age) where the thyroid gland, found at the bottom of the neck, isn’t making enough thyroid hormone, which is key in balancing our body’s metabolism. “Hypothyroidism slows the metabolic rate. It can also cause fatigue, and sometimes when people are tired, they think if they have something to eat, they might feel better,” says Lorraine Watson, associate professor in the faculty of nursing at the University of Calgary and a weight management expert.

9) Polycystic ovary syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance that is associated with cysts, or sacs filled with fluid, in the ovaries, affecting women mostly during their childbearing years, it can seriously complicate ovulation; it is also associated with increases in weight and associated with insulin resistance and thus Type 2 diabetes.

10) Drink More Diet Soda, Gain More Weight? – The findings come from eight years of data collected by Sharon P. Fowler, MPH, and colleagues at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio. Fowler reported the data at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association in San Diego.”What didn’t surprise us was that total soft drink use was linked to overweight and obesity,” Fowler tells WebMD. “What was surprising was when we looked at people only drinking diet soft drinks, their risk of obesity was even higher.”In fact, when the researchers took a closer look at their data, they found that nearly all the obesity risk from soft drinks came from diet sodas.
