Summary: Are you consistently overweight, no matter what you do? Well, there's a reason for that.Are you consistently overweight, no matter what you do? Have you tried everything? Are you plagued by stubborn fat hanging around your hips, thighs, and belly? Well, there's a reason for that. All those frustratingly pointless diets and exercise regimes have failed to address the root cause of weight gain. According to Dr. Lori Shemek, a successful diet isn't centered on calories or cardio. As Dr. Shemek puts it, "Cutting calories doesn't cut it." Our problems with fat are created because we eat foods that cause the body's natural fat cells to become inflamed. Sadly, the staples of the Standard American Diet -- from pasta and bread to factory-farmed chicken and cattle, from sugar and artificial sweeteners to salad dressing and soft drinks -- irritate our fat cells, causing chronic inflammation and chronically oversized fat cells. This irritation causes the body to store fat permanently, no matter how hard you exercise or how diligently you cut back on calories. In her book, How to Fight FATflammation, Dr. Shemek reveals her revolutionary three-week program that helps reboot your body chemistry by returning your body's fat cells back to their natural, healthy state. Listen as Dr. Shemek joins host Lisa Davis to explain more about this concept, as well as how you can start to eliminate the dreaded FATflammation Four: sugar, refined grains, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners.
