Struggling To Lose Weight? This MD Says Knowing Your ‘Weight Loss Type’ Will Help

For all types, if you’re struggling to lose weight, I often recommend omitting both gluten and dairy, as these foods can be inflammatory.

Anti-inflammatory foods are also important for promoting hormone balance and digestive function, especially for Warriors, Anchors, and Trailblazers. Begin by omitting sensitivities and incorporating more anti-inflammatory foods and spices, such as turmeric, ginger, blueberries, pineapple, and celery. 

Protein is key for Anchors to support adrenal function, while Protector types may want to limit their intake of red meat in favor of more easily digested proteins. 

You’ll want to omit sugar, refined carbohydrates, and alcohol if you’re a type who struggles with Candida overgrowth, most commonly Anchors and Protectors. This type of yeast overgrowth can cause bloating, fatigue, joint pain, and weight gain—but it’s often a latent infection overlooked at most doctors’ visits.
