Most people want and need to lose weight. While reducing inflammation has been demonstrated to be one of the best long-term weight loss methods, what about people who are thin or normal weight? Many people erroneously associate being a healthy weight with being healthy. This dangerous assumption often causes people to miss the connection between inflammation and disease progression. This phenomenon of being skinny fat is real, and very common in today’s society. When you eating a diet high in inflammatory foods, it causes visceral fat to be stored in your body.
Again, without addressing low-grade inflammation, outwardly appearing thin or healthy individuals can easily suffer from chronic conditions including, fatigue, irregular bowel function, asthma, allergies, headaches, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and autoimmune conditions to name a few.
First steps to lowering your inflammation :
1. Get your hs-CRP tested
2. Improve your consumption of Omega-3 fats
3. Avoid grains
4. Lower stress
5. Improve you key nutrients
6. Add key supplements to your diet
7. Eliminate sugar
8. Improve your daily exercise
9. Improve your water intake: Body Weight ÷ 2 = Total oz Daily
10. Eliminate all processed foods
