What is a Biological FAT Switch and How Do We Turn it Off?
Our body’s biology is programmed to use fat to protect us and, even though we may not be in imminent danger, threatened by famine or enduring freezing temperatures in our daily lives, there are a vast variety of modern day emotional stress factors that can trigger that FAT switch.
Environmental stresses, stress in our workplace, and stress in our relationships all trigger our ancestral survival trigger… and we put on weight to protect ourselves from the perceived danger.
This FAT SWITCH is part of our genetic programming that we inherited from our hunter and gatherer ancestors. And when our subconscious mind switches the fat switch on, no diet or exercise program, drug or pill we try will help us lose weight and keep it off… at least not in the long term.
This is why programs that advocate gruelling exercise like “The Biggest Loser” and Boot Camps inadvertently fail… because they DO NOT address the underlying issue, which is emotional NOT physical. Not that there is anything wrong with exercise, it IS important to maintain an active lifestyle but we need to address the underlying problem first.
So how do we switch the FAT switch off? In order to turn the fat switch off we need to reprogram our subconscious mind so we can eliminate the emotional stresses that are keeping us trapped. When we do that, our subconscious mind will automatically switch the FAT switch off, and our bodies will naturally shed weight. We will crave less “bad” food and crave more nutritious food, our metabolism will naturally speed up, and our bodies become very efficient at burning fat.
