Interested in getting healthy and losing weight? In today’s modern and overweight society who is not? I am going to tell you the number one secret up front, but do keep reading this article—otherwise you will not even know what to do with this secret. This A-number one, closely guarded secret is as follows: “fat burning occurs in deep sleep.” But, you may be wondering what to do with this information. Dr. Eric Berg, developer of the well-known Body Type System of Weight Loss, knows what to do with this valuable piece of information and he shares this knowledge in The 7 Principles of Fat Burning. This book was published in January 2011 by KB publishing and talks about having a healthy metabolism/the three main focuses related to developing a healthy metabolism, provides nutritional consulting, and introduces three techniques to help with your weight loss.
You may have noticed the first sentence of this article and wondered if it should be the other way around—as in perhaps losing weight should precede getting healthy. Although this is the approach many modern programs take, Dr. Berg cautions against this approach as trying to lose weight without a healthy metabolism may bring on unpleasant symptoms “like fatigue, insomnia, pain, cravings that act like multiple applications on a person’s desk top computer slowing the metabolism.” Developing a healthy metabolism is the main area of interest in this book and it outlines three main focuses having to do with developing a healthy metabolism. The first focus has to do with nourishing the metabolism, rather than starving it. This does not necessarily mean to eat more, just to eat nutrient dense foods. The second focus of developing a healthy metabolism relates to removing stress from the body and allowing the metabolism to recharge during deep sleep. Finally the third focus of developing a healthy metabolism prescribes optimizing your workouts (interval training is the best way to do this) BUT only after getting a good night’s sleep and recharging your metabolism.
As developing a healthy metabolism is the main interest of this number one best-selling Amazon book, nutritional coaching and consulting is of primary concern. Furthermore Dr. Berg also prescribes three techniques of his own invention to help you lose weight. The first technique is of primary importance to weight loss occurring during sleep. This technique teaches the reader to remove unnecessary stress from the body via the stimulation of joints. All three techniques are very much related to the joints and this first one is called Acupressure Stress Elimination Technique (ASET).The second, called Dynamic Joint Recovery (DJR), has to do with the recovery of injured joints and reducing muscle guarding so that healing can take place. The third technique, called NeuroPathway Technique (NPT), which precedes the second in many cases, simply helps you assess the nerve pathways connecting an injured joint or any other trauma to the brain so that healing or recovery becomes possible.
Developing a healthy metabolism is the main concern of The 7 Principles of Fat Burning by Dr. Berg. However this book also deals with other issues, e.g. nutritional consulting and the three techniques to help you lose weight. All of this information centers around the number one secret: “fat burning occurs in deep sleep.”
