Obesity Linked to Various Diseases

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are a number of serious health risks associated with obesity. This widespread condition can result from a combination of causes, including dietary patterns, physical activity, inactivity, medication use and other exposures.

Whatever the cause, obesity is a serious concern associated with poorer mental health outcomes, reduced quality of life and the leading causes of death worldwide.

Obesity Increases the Risk for Many Diseases and Conditions, Including:

  • High blood pressure (Hypertension)
  • Type 2 diabetes1
  • Coronary heart disease2
  • Stroke
  • Some cancers (endometrial, breast, colon, kidney, gallbladder, and liver)3
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Clinical depression and anxiety

WinFit: A Natural, Affordable Path to HGH

Often touted as the fountain of youth, human growth hormone (HGH) has a powerful influence on how much fat or muscle your body has. The secret lies in finding a source that’s both natural and affordable.

Synthetic HGH, for instance, is extremely expensive. In fact, those who have an HGH deficiency could spend between $10,000 and $30,000 a year to replace it. This is obviously cost prohibitive for most people and, unless you have a pituitary deficiency, completely unnecessary.

Fortunately, two lifestyle modifications can optimize your body’s natural production of HGH: How you exercise and your nutrition status. This is where WinFit can really help.

The WinFit Exercise Approach Naturally Elevates HGH

Studies and practical experience show that doing an exercise with greater intensity induces a greater HGH release than workouts using lightweight at a lower intensity. Likewise, this is why the WinFit System includes HIIT and Tabata training as part of its regimen.

In fact, a recent study conducted at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, shows that sprinting for 20 seconds, resting for one minute, and then repeating this two more times (one minute of exercise) provides the same amount of fat loss as 45 MINUTES of walking. Importantly, this repeated exercise-rest cycle also promotes very large releases of growth hormones, which is the most efficient way to train your body.1

We also recommend consuming protein and carbohydrates immediately following your workout to enhance your training. This will help maximize muscle building, while reducing cortisol, which is known to increase blood sugar, suppress the immune system, and decrease bone formation. But to stay on track with your WinFit results, make sure this protein and these carbohydrates are only consumed during your Eight-Hour Eating Window.

Theta One Also Naturally Elevates HGH

Nutrition also plays a role in HGH production. For instance, Our Theta One nutrition formula (also included in the WinFit System) contains L-arginine, which improves HGH response. And research shows that HGH helps build lean muscle and metabolize fat.2

Obesity Now Linked to Various Forms of Cancer

Obesity is a rising global problem. In fact, a staggering 69 percent of the U.S. population is overweight or obese1 (over 59 percent in the EU2). Asia is also experiencing an uptick, particularly in Malaysia, where obesity rates are now over 50 percent.3

These numbers are especially concerning when you consider a recent analysis conducted by the Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). The assessment, which examines more than 1000 relevant studies published in the last 14 years, is a follow up to the Agency’s first scientific review conducted in 2002.

Cancers Implicated in the First (2002) Review

In 2002, the IARC reported that excess body weight increased one’s risk for the following cancers:

  • Colon and rectum cancers
  • Esophagus adenocarcinoma (a stomach cancer)
  • Kidney or renal cell carcinoma
  • Postmenopausal breast cancer
  • Cancer in the endometrium of the uterus

New Cancers Called Out in the 2016 Review

The new report, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, adds 8 new cancers to the list:

  • Gastric cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Gallbladder cancer
  • Multiple myeloma (a blood cancer)
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Meningioma (a cancer that affects the tissue surrounding the brain and spine)

The panel, made up of 21 cancer experts, named corpus uteri (cancer of the uterus) and esophagus adenocarcinoma as the two cancers that pose the highest risk.

Scientists believe that excess body fat activates chronic inflammation throughout the body. Chronic inflammation, in turn, interferes with the production and modulation of sex hormones, which act as pathways for the growth and development of cancer cells.

Light Therapy Provides a Brighter Outlook for Many in Need

A recent study published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry shows that light therapy may actually help with depression, which affects about seven percent of American adults each year. Researchers studied a small group of adults with this condition, which yielded some compelling results.

Study participants who used light therapy sat in front of a light box for 30 minutes a day right after waking up. Among the 32 patients who did light therapy alone and the 29 who combined light therapy with Prozac, 44 percent and 59 percent experienced remission after eight weeks, respectively. By comparison, only 19 percent of the 31 patients who just took Prozac saw favorable results.

Many questions remain about how light therapy could affect depression. But according to Dr. Richard S. Schwartz, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, it’s likely related to shifting circadian rhythms so that your body thinks it’s earlier in the day.

In addition to depression, emerging evidence shows that light therapy may also help with bipolar disorder, chronic pain and improve sleep for those who suffer from dementia.
