Strength and Power: How to Support and Repair Your Metabolism

Here is a fantastic article from Deedra Mason, The Director of Clinical Education & Research at Market America.

 Repairing metabolism is an important focus for rebuilding our core health and can improve our level of fitness in later decades of life. Through years of poor dietary choices, sedentary lifestyles or lack of targeted exercise, we lose muscle. Non-modifiable risk factor for loss muscle mass include: our advancing years, infirmity or disability and by some measure our gender due to menopause and/or andropause (decline of reproductive hormones associated with, but not limited to, age, stress, surgery and medications). A low ratio of muscle to fat may put you at a higher risk for heart disease, diabetes and other health problems. Even if you don’t have frank muscle mass loss, called Sarcopenia, you may have loss if POWER.  This is called dynapenia and it’s a major concern through all decades of life.

Your focus, is to overcome these health and fitness challenges by rebuilding lost muscle mass, and youthful vitality or power via healthy protein and fat choices. When we support our body’ healthy aging, we improve our metabolism and support the elimination of toxins from our system. One of the side benefits of course is weight loss.

Your first step is to commit to choosing your food based on color and nutrient density. Choose plenty of protein and fat in its natural state to repair metabolism and support healthy hormones like glucose, insulin and leptin along with gender related hormones like Progesterone and Testosterone.

What about exercise? While many tend to look at health clubs and exercise programs as a luxury available to few, physical exercise is a necessity for all. Focus on “Inches loss” not “pounds lost”. A pound of muscle is about half as bulky as the same pound of fat. They are pound for pound the same weight, but muscle takes up less space ( inches) and is a tissue that can support: balance, strength, flexibility, a quick reaction time. If you have tried losing weight by cutting calories or participating in “diets” that do not include exercise, you have likely decreased lean muscle mass.

HOT TIP: Something you may want to add to your fitness and health regimen.

As aging occurs, the body’s ability to build and retain muscle tissue or size is reduced, which can result in weakness and frailty. With the addition of Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) via supplementation Research has shown promotion of muscle retention in older adults. Additionally, BCAA’s during exercise, regardless of age, support muscle protein synthesis and inhibits protein catabolism (breakdown) and muscle fatigue, therefore fighting concerns of dynapenia.

Branched chain amino acids (BCAA) are essential aminos, as they cannot be synthesized by the human body and, therefore, must be consumed orally. Unlike other amino acids, BCAA are used primarily by skeletal muscle, and make up 30-35 percent of the muscle tissue itself. By rebuilding our muscle mass through exercise and a healthy lifestyle, including BCAA’s-we can optimize our health and our longevity.

There is no one trigger for disease; therefore your approach to well-being should be diverse.

 So there you have it. With a proper diet, lifestyle and some dedication you can repair your metabolism at any age.

Which Weight Loss Program Should I Choose?

With so many "diets" out there today, it can be very confusing on choosing a program that is right for you.

Most commercial programs (the ones you see on TV) are designed for a person to keep coming back day after day, month after month and year after year. They only really seem to work if you go for life and spend THOUSANDS of dollars. Then you have the "quick fix" programs where most have a very restricted calorie intake and you are promised to lose all you want to lose by taking the tons of supplements, the MAGIC pills and shakes. Don't get me wrong, most do lose weight but at what costs to your health?

Here are the risks of the above programs:
  • Muscle and water loss
  • Carb sensitivity
  • Not sustainable
  • Limited variety
  • Regain weight back and usually more
  • Unhealthy calorie restricted diet
 If your goal is to be healthy, look and feel energized then the above programs are not the best choice for you.

What To Look For In a Weight Loss Program

No that I have gone over some of the things to stay away from, I will now address what to look for when choosing the a weight loss program. Here's a quick video

Senator who attacked Doctor Oz over dietary supplements, Fact or Fiction

There has been a lot of feedback t on the Dr. Oz video that has gone viral (see link below) about his recommendation of weight loss supplements. I don’t always agree with Dr. Oz but I also know that quality supplementation will help with someone’s weight loss efforts. I realize that it is of some people’s belief that supplementation is not needed at all and that eating right and working out is the “ONLY” way to lose weight. It is very true that without great eating habits and some sort of exercise, losing weight is virtually impossible. It is also very true that with the right supplementation, you can lose fat and unwanted pounds faster than without supplements. With the correct supplements you can also help repair your metabolism and some hormone issues like leptin resistance.  I don’t know whether or not the supplements in question will work and I also know for sure that there is NO “MAGIC” pill! I believe Dr. Oz chose the wrong verbiage to which he admits to. Let’s be honest even if he did profit from these products how is that any different than any other celebrity getting paid for endorsing products? Jennifer Hudson, Jessica Simpson, Valerie Bertinelli and many more have endorsed weight loss programs and thousands more have endorsed products like makeup, vehicles, clothes and foods. Do all those products work or are they all great? 

As for the video with Dr. Oz and Senator Claire McCaskill. It is very interesting how she condemns him for promoting products on his show insinuating he profits from it, yet this same person “received over $146,000 in campaign contributions from one of the largest pharmaceutical retailers in North America. According to campaign contribution data published at, prescription drug mega-retailer Express Scripts gave McCaskill over $109,000 in campaign contributions, most of which was routed through lobbyist groups or PACs. (1)

Sen. McCaskill also accepted over $37,000 from Monsanto, widely regarded to be the most evil corporation in the world and an enemy of sustainable food production, heirloom seeds and traditional American farming methods.”

So bottom line is yes you can get healthy and lose weight with eating right and exercise. I also know you can definitely speed up your efforts when working with a trained weight loss coach and with the correct supplementation.
Look at both links below so you can make an informed decision on Dr. Oz.
