“If you’ve noticed your body is easily irritated by certain foods, there’s a good chance you have a food intolerance. Different from a food allergy, which is an immune system response, food intolerance affects the digestive system, making it hard to digest and break down certain foods (the most common being dairy), says the Cleveland Clinic. Those with a food intolerance often experience gas, cramps, and bloating, making it feel like they’re gaining weight. Depending on how severe the food intolerance is, they might also experience diarrhea.
The fix: While you might feel super bloated and uncomfortable throughout the day because of your diet, you might not actually be gaining weight. The Cleveland Clinic recommends avoiding or reducing the foods you think are giving you issues, and if you do end up eating something that bothers your stomach, take an antacid. Although Crohn’s disease can pop up anywhere between the mouth and the anus, UCLA Health says ulcerative colitis stays in the colon, resulting in a constantly inflamed digestive tract that can initially lead to weight loss. Like Crohn’s, though, the treatment for the inflammatory bowel disease — steroids — could make your body gain weight.
“”An oral steroid like Prednisone can also cause your body fat to redistribute itself, so instead of it being in your stomach or glutes, it could move to the face or neck,”” says Sachar.
Even though you may notice a difference in your weight during treatment, everything should go back down to normal as soon as you’re able to get off the steroids.
The fix: After speaking to your doctor, find a treatment plan that’s right for you and the severity of your ulcerative colitis — one that may or may not involve steroids. While more moderate to severe forms might be treated with steroids, 5-aminosalicylates and immunosuppressant drugs are also options. Whatever you end up using, know your wellbeing is top priority. If that involves gaining a few pounds to better your health, it’s worth it.”
I’m Mary and I’m 42 years young!
I’d like to share a personal story that I know will resonate with you.
In the past 2 years, I’ve tried it all…
Every science backed diet there is including keto, vegan, paleo, Atkins and more.
And when nothing was working, I became so desperate that I resorted to long, painful fasts.
And yet, since I had my second daughter at 28, I haven’t been able to lose any weight…
Well, maybe a few pounds for a little while but then it all comes roaring back when I stop whatever gimmick I’m on that month.
You should’ve seen me in my college days. I was tall, slim and had been blessed by the good Lord with an hourglass figure that always turned heads.
Hey, it’s how I attracted my husband Tom!
But after Andrea was born… I couldn’t get back down to my normal 130. I’m 5 foot 7, and that was always a great weight on me.
Yet I’ve spent the better part of 20 years pushing 220 pounds.
And the worst part of it all was that I had developed pre-diabetes and other obesity related symptoms that made me feel tired and sick every single day.
Then one sleepless night, I came across a Facebook post…
The post was written by John Barban, a fitness trainer and nutrition expert to the celebrities.
What was so interesting about this post was that John wrote about how he had suffered from uncontrollable weight gain after turning 40 — even though he was “the one” celebrities went to whenever they had to lose weight and get fit for a role.
But all his knowledge and experience didn’t matter, no matter what he did, he was not able to lose weight…
Until he stumbled upon a breakthrough discovery.
The biggest revelation from John’s discovery was that genetics, diet or exercise didn’t play a part as to why men and women in their 40s, 50s and even 60s don’t lose weight.
Instead, they were all gaining uncontrollable weight because of shallow sleep syndrome.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re getting 8 or even 10 hours of sleep a day, if you weren’t in a state of deep sleep, losing weight is literally impossible no matter what, or how little you eat, or how many hours you exercise.
At that moment, it dawned on me that it wasn’t my fault that I could not lose weight…
All of the things I thought I was doing right, all the advice I’d receive from health professionals — starving myself, running until I ached, eliminating carbs, yadda, yadda, yadda — they weren’t really helping me because I wasn’t fixing the root cause of weight gain.
All that time and effort, not to mention thousands of dollars down the drain…
Because I was fed lies by these so-called health professionals who temporarily treated the symptoms of excess body fat, but did nothing to cure the root cause of it.
Can you believe that?
John continued to explain that by following a simple 2-minute “after-dinner ritual”, no matter your age, shape or size, you can overcome shallow sleep syndrome and force your body melt away the unwanted fat.
Despite John showing a “before” picture and an “after” picture of himself from a couple of months ago, I was skeptical about the 2-minute “after-dinner ritual”.
But I owed it to myself to at least give the ritual a try.
And I was desperate to try anything.
You won’t believe what happened next!
In a single week, I lost 9 pounds and could really see the difference right away. My hips seemed slimmer and my jeans started to loosen up.
So I kept following John’s advice and I actually lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
The stubborn fat pockets and cellulite have vanished from my bum, belly, underarms and thighs, along with the relentless back and joint pain that have plagued me for years.
The debilitating symptoms of pre-diabetes and obesity have also disappeared…
And my metabolism is now so ridiculously fast that regaining a single pound seems utterly impossible no matter what I eat.
At 42 years old, I look and feel 20 years younger… and not to brag, my sex drive is now even more rampant than what I remembered during my college days.
Since then, I have found out that John made it his mission in life to share this healthy weight loss discovery with women all across the world.
John’s discovery has made such a big impact on my life that I would regret it if I did not share his presentation with others.
Imagine instantaneously becoming in complete control of your health and weight loss, effortlessly melting off unhealthy body fat quickly, safely and naturally…
Imagine completely restoring your youthful metabolism and resurrecting your energy, sex drive and zest for life…
And imagine renewing the health and appearance of your skin, hair and nails back to the days of your prime and beyond…
All while bulletproofing your immune system and reversing every single symptom of age and disease.
If you’re a woman who has struggled with weight loss, you owe it to yourself to watch John’s presentation and finally have the solution you need to lose weight and take full control of your life once and for all.
The consequences would have been disastrous had I not have strapped on my faith and followed John’s 2-minute “after-dinner” ritual.
I would never be living the life of my dreams right now.
And I would have continued to gain more weight and be imminently sentenced to a life of critical health complications and nasty medications.
I really hope it has the same impact on you as it did on me. Because the information you’re about to learn has literally saved my life.
