JJ Virgin, celebrity nutrition and fitness expert, joins us on today’s episode to help us uncover the hidden factors that are causing weight gain. Many people who are struggling to lose weight may not realize that food sensitivities and intolerances can be drastically impacting their health. If you find that you’re struggling to lose weight and the “calories in, calories out” method just isn’t working, you should take potential food intolerances into account by taking a food sensitivity test.


What You'll Learn:

  • There is a surplus of weight loss information available online, which can be incredibly overwhelming to those who are trying to start a weight loss journey.
  • The calories in, calories out method is a myth that can damage your metabolism and mindset when trying to lose weight.
  • One hidden cause of weight gain is food intolerance and sensitivities. These intolerances cause inflammation which affect insulin resistance, then leading your body to stop burning stored fat.
  • A few common foods that patients are intolerant of include dairy, eggs, wheat, gluten, soy, corn, peanuts, sugar, and artificial sweeteners.
  • One way to identify that you have a food intolerance can be found in delayed responses. A few of these indicators include feeling fatigued, getting breakouts, feeling bloated, etc.
  • If you perform a food sensitivity test and find that you’re sensitive to multiple foods, you should seek out a functional medicine doctor and focus on healing your gut and detoxifying your system.
  • A list of popular alternatives for those with food sensitivities to gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, etc.
