Currently, thousands of Americans are overweight; while 33% suffer from obesity. Every year over 147 million dollars are spent to combat obesity in America, with failure rates at over 90 percent. Weight loss is a difficult process, which is caused by multiple reasons including:
- Food cravings due to low brain chemicals (serotonin and/or dopamine)
- Sleep deprivation
- Insulin resistance
- High cortisol levels due to chronic stress
- Allergies and gut dysbiosis
