What diets and swollen belly’s are telling you

It’s all down to hormones. Calorie restricting diets in the long run don’t work as they disrupt important hormones and enzymes. If you attend a one to one with me I will teach you the metabolic typing chart. Just by skipping one meal can put the body into a state of fight or fright elevating stress hormones . The body then releases stored glycogen from the liver into the blood to raise your food sugar. You will then yo – yo between high and low blood sugars, creating yet another major stress on the body. An over stressed body will not lose weight nor function at optimal level.

When we eat too many carbs , your body must release insulin to lower blood sugars levels. When we skip meals or don’t eat enough of the right foods, it keeps insulin levels high because the body thinks it’s in a state of famine and it’s forced to store energy when ever it is supplied.

Why movement is so important

If you’re an active person insulin will  store sugar in the muscle. However if the muscles are not being used, or if the muscle cells are full, your extra calories will wind up as fat cells. Exercising muscles keeps them sensitive  to insulin , as an active muscle will take in sugar for energy. Inactive muscles become insulin resistant and shuttle more and more calories to fat cells. A diet calling for a high consumption of carbohydrates beyond ideal for your metabolic type will also make you progressively insulin resistant.

When fat gets stored in the middle of your body it’s a sign that you’ve become insulin resistant. The medical name for this is syndrome X. Accumulating fat around your waste is a sign of diets, yo -yo dieting, lack of exercise and consuming too many carbohydrates for your metabolic type. Once the fat in the midsection is full, it will then accumulate to other areas of the body, making you more obese. I now this form experience myself and can always tell if I am consuming too many carbohydrates and that include scrub to some degree.

Because muscles and fat cells become progressively less sensitive  to insulin, blood sugar levels rise higher, forcing the pancreas  to overwork in an attempt to lower blood sugar levels. Eventually, you’ll become a Type 2 diabetic.

Anytime you miss a meal – yes just one meal- your body increases the release of lipogenic enzymes(fat storing cells). when they lipogenic enzymes increase , the enzymes you really need , the lipolytic or fat burning enzymes are decreased . the effect is much more pronounced in men than in women.

Her background spans over 25 years with formal training in classical ballet, modern dance, tap, national choreography, stage production and theatre. Her formation includes Pilates, Thai bodywork, Yoga, GYROTONIC, GYROKINESIS and anatomical studies. Her particular interest is fascia, and the connective lines and movement patterns that allow a full moving structure rather than the isolation of bones and muscles. Her fascination with questioning the traditions of modern medicine and fascination with searching for meaningful answers has taken her in many different directions and has offered her an abundance of opportunities gaining a wealth of knowledge. “I tried many movement modalities and extended my search after experiencing fascia, because of its simplicity in movement. Quickly, I noticed my own body changing as well as the bodies of my own clients. In the last 25 years of teaching I’ve developed a workout unique to Yoga Anatomy". Throughout her studies Nisha has done numerous dissections with Julian Baker and Cery Davies and has the opportunity to take lectures and courses from Robert Schleip, Joanne Avisons, Tom Myers, Matt Wallden, Emma Lane, Gary Carter, Paul Chek, Dan Hellman, Peter Blackaby, James de Silva plus many many more Nishas teaching method promotes reflective self-discovery and provides the requirements to integrate a shift in consciousness for attaining individual goals.
