How Do You Lose Weight Naturally?

I'm 32 years old and I am struggling with losing these last fifteen pounds. I follow an anti-inflammatory diet and exercise five days per week. What do you suggest I do to lose the weight?

Dear Steve,

Many times we feel like we are doing everything right, but can't seem to lose those unwanted last ten to fifteen pounds. Usually in this situation it comes down to potential deficiencies and hormones. Basically, our metabolism. Eating foods in the right combinations, exercising using a surge-style 20- minute routine, getting a good nutritional blood work panel, or genetic nutritional test done with your doctor or dietitian, are all great ways to find the secret to losing those last few pounds. Make sure you do the research to have you’re your foundational areas covered. If you plan on checking your blood work, research suggests that it may be important to ask your doctor about B12, B6, iron, testosterone, estrogen, growth hormone, cortisol, and the thyroid tests. Your doctor or dietitian will be able to check the blood work and evaluate appropriately. And don't forget about considering supplementing an already healthy diet to get the edge. Keep up the great lifestyle choices with eating well and exercising! You are on your way to reaching your goals!
