CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Many studies and recent research shows that weight gain isn’t just about calories and lack of exercise. Holistic Health Coach Jennifer Steiner joined to talk about environmental toxins, obesogens and weight gain.
Obesogens are chemicals that directly or indirectly affect our weight in ways that can result in
obesity through the disruption of metabolic, hormonal, or developmental processes.
These are chemicals that interfere with our body’s regulatory system, which ultimately determines our
metabolism, our weight, how our fat cells develop, appetite and satiety cues, or can cause us to be predisposed to weight gain from birth.
Reducing exposure to these chemicals can ease the burden on our body’s
natural detoxification process and can help to more gently and permanently release weight!
