Dr. Berg has a very important tip for fast weight loss. There’s a big barrier behind the scene whether it is the weight, stubborn metabolism, insulin resistance, and slow thyroid. The longer you had these problem, the longer it is going to take to lose weight. When dealing with weight problem, you are dealing with something inside the body that is not working. The estimation of effort is going to be way more than you think. He also talks about the normal weight loss for a healthy person which is 2lbs per week.

So you’re not losing weight fast enough? I have a very important tip. There’s a big barrier behind the scene and that is basically the time you had this condition whether it’s weight or stubborn metabolism or insulin resistance behind the weight or a slow thyroid behind the weight, maybe many many time you have dieted it kind of destroyed the metabolism then here you are later in life wanting to lose weight. Well, the longer you had the problem, the longer it’s going to take. The estimation of effort many times is way more than you think simply because you’re dealing with a very big problem internally in your body. So let’s just take for example a fatty liver, you can’t see it from the outside, it’s been brewing in the oven for many many years. You can see it in your gut, if you have a gut you have a fatty liver but you can’t really see it unless you do an ultrasound. So it could be sitting there for many many years and not even having any symptoms other than the gut. To fix the weight gain in the gut, you have to fix the liver first. It could take a long time. Let’s just say you had an adrenal problem, adrenal fatigue. Here’s a book, Frank Netter, I wanna read something on page 101. It says an adrenal gland has an enormous functional reserve. Indeed adrenal deficiencies do not become clinically manifested, they don’t show up in a blood test until ninetenths of the adrenal has been rendered unresponsive. It takes 90% of the adrenal gland destruction before it even shows up on a test. So a lot of times these things takes a long long time before we even know that they’re a problem even when you have insulin resistance for example. For it to turn the diabetes that could take 10, 15 years. Alzheimer’s starts 30 years before it’s diagnosed. Cancer the same thing. So when we’re dealing with a weight problem, we’re dealing with something inside the body that is not working. It’s usually insulin resistance and that’s been brewing for many many years and you just have to give it some time and even change your goal so you’re not setting yourself up for an unrealistic expectation. The estimation of effort usually is going to be more than you think. Now, how much weight loss is normal? For a very healthy person, two pounds per week is normal. Now if you have this idea that you should be losing five pounds a week well that’s incorrect because it’s never gonna happen. What’s normal is two pounds but that’s for a healthy person. So if you’re not healthy yet, it could be a lot less.
