Holiday Biohacking to Prevent
(or Reverse) Weight Gain: Part 1
This article has been medically reviewed by Dr. Charles Penick, MD
Holiday Biohacking: It’s that time of year people seem to fear when it comes to maintaining their health and fitness goals: the holidays. I’m here today to share with you my #1 bio-hack when it comes to navigating this holiday season, which will not only prevent you from putting on weight… but might even help you lose weight. And no, it has nothing to do with deprivation. These tools will not only help you maintain a healthy weight, but they will also positively influence your sleeping habits, your energy, your mood, and as a result- even your relationships!
Most people seem to think that they gain weight during the holidays because of their increased sugar (carbohydrate) intake, and although that may play a small role, there is actually a bigger culprit. Despite being full of sugar, the more detrimental aspect of these holiday foods is actually their toxic load.
Holiday Biohacking: Toxins in Pre-Made Desserts
The problem is those foods that you’re going to be eating are loaded with toxins.
There is a laundry list of harmful chemicals found in these packaged goods, cakes, cookies, pies… even the home-made ones baked with conventional flours and other ingredients, they include:
- Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
- Artificial Food Coloring
- Sodium Nitrite
- Guar Gum
- High-Fructose Corn Syrup
- Artificial Sweeteners
- Sodium Benzoate
Today we are going to focus on a particularly toxic chemical that has made its way into the majority of our foods (even some labeled organic), and its name is glyphosate.
The Problem: Glyphosate
Glyphosate is a chemical found in a herbicide called Roundup, produced by Monsanto. This product is being used around the globe to grow our food, and particularly to grow grains. It has begun to permeate even organic soils and is so rampant that it is being found in our water supply and even in breast milk.
Glyphosate is especially high in grain production, because spraying Roundup on the plants just prior to harvesting increases the yield, and facilitates processing. What this means for us is anything made with products that have been grown or processed using Roundup (yes, even your grandma’s homemade oatmeal cookies), is a hit of glyphosate and all its associated problems.
These problems are vast, but a major one is the fact that glyphosate increases the absorption of all other neurotoxic chemicals. As a result of this increased toxic load, the cell functions improperly, which means sick hormones, mood swings, poor sleep, weight gain, and disease.
A healthy body develops metabolic flexibility.
With metabolic flexibility, the body can properly assimilate high carbohydrate foods for energy, without weight gain, brain fog, and mood swings. When the cell is malfunctioning due to a toxic load, it loses its ability to communicate with hormones, and this breakdown of communication means the body cannot properly process what you feed it. When we look at type 2 diabetes, the problem isn’t that the body doesn’t produce insulin, it’s that the cell receptors cannot register that it’s there. Instead of removing the sugar (which triggers the need for insulin), the more important factor is healing the cell, so that the line of communication between hormones and the body becomes clear. That is called hormone sensitivity, and that ensures your body is working the way that it is meant to.
What a relief to know that in fact, it’s not your fault.
Your hormones are reacting to assault, and that is why today’s holiday biohack has nothing to do with deprivation or willpower. This holiday biohacking solution is supporting the cell from the ground up and helping rid it of glyphosate (and all those other nasty chemicals!) so that it can function properly, restore your natural energy, your healthy weight, and your mood.
Holiday Biohacking Solution: Cellular Detox
You might have thought I would tell you the answer was to avoid the chemical(s) itself, but I’m a realist. Don’t get me wrong, your regular diet should definitely avoid such toxins, but my purpose isn’t to ruin your holidays; I want to give you tools on how to navigate them realistically and optimize your health along the way. The solution is removing the toxins from the cells, that’s the process I call cellular detox. As a result, your body will work the way it was designed to, which means better sleep, less unwanted body fat, and stable moods.
If you’re very sick (autoimmune, etc.), I definitely recommend working with a proper health coach. This is why I train doctors all around the world in this multifaceted therapeutic approach to healing so that even very sick people can heal. But today, we’re here to focus on ways you can incorporate a simplified cellular detox strategy to lessen the blow of holiday toxicity and weight gain. I want to focus on what basically everybody can do.
Cellular detox is the holiday biohacking key to regulating your hormones and losing weight.
Up-regulating certain cell functions is a part of my 5r method to holiday biohacking.
- Remove the Source
- Regenerate the Cell Membrane
- Restore Cellular Energy
- Reduce Inflammation
- Reestablish Methylation
Without getting too deep into it (you can read more on DrPompa.com), you just have to understand that our cells are designed to self-detoxify. Even if it doesn’t come in contact with added toxins, the cell produces waste as a result of creating energy (much like a chimney), which it then has to clean up. The problems start when they are hit with too many toxins at once (like during the holidays), and so their function begins to slow. As the detoxification slows, the problems begin to build up, and up, and up.
