announcing a new breakthrough for antidepressant weight gain
DRUG INDUCED WEIGHT
from antidepressants and antipsychotic
is common. There are estimates that 25% of all people
taking an antidepressant
some time during
treatment experience drug induced weight gain. We were not
able to find verifiable statistics with antipsychotic
medication, but with the incidence of diabetes being
extremely high and other factors commonly seen with
prolonged antipsychotic medication usage,
would be as
high or higher of weight gain when an antipsychotic
There are a number of factors associated with the weight
gain and when these factors are addressed, weight loss can
Antidepressants create insulin resistance. Insulin is not
allowed into the cells or in some cases the insulin will be
too abundant within the cells. Either scenario is not
optimum or the results will be detrimental for the body.
Weight gain being just one of them.
Antipsychotics alter the rate of production and the
accumulation of hormones in the body.
Both antidepressants and antipsychotic medications will
activate the JNK gene. This activation is a direct cause of
the weight gain and other adverse reactions associated with
these medications. The JNK gene has a purpose in the human
body to help fight cancer and tumors and other real
conditions, but when this gene becomes overly activated it
will also kill cells and alter proteins that are not meant
to be killed or altered.
The theory of the diet suggested here to combat the drug
induced weight gain is to:
reverse the unintended JNK activation
balance the adrenals
going back into the cell that will naturally lead
to weight loss.
A change in the foods you eat and avoid will also have an
impact in your ability to lose weight. Many people would be
happy to just have the weight gain stop and the weight loss
would be a pure bonus. We at The Road Back Program are not
satisfied with only stopping the weight gain.
It is common for people to be on a strict diet and get
plenty of exercise and not lose weight. I have worked with
countless aerobics instructors that kept gaining weight,
even with hours of extreme exercise each day and an
excellent diet. They too were gaining weight each month and
it would not stop.
If you are overweight and using the supplements in this
program for antidepressants or antipsychotic medication, you
should start to see weight loss begin around week 4 or week
five. Just by taking the JNK Capsules and Neuro Endure Mini the
chance for weight loss increases dramatically. If you have
daytime anxiety add the Adrenalpin to the daily mix.
If you are a women, you have a 15% chance of greater loss if
you take calcium each day. You have 250mg of calcium in each
serving of JNK Capsules. If you are taking 3 servings a day
of the JNK Capsules you would only need to add 250mg of
additional calcium citrate a day to reach the amount of
calcium to help with weight loss.
Other things can slow the weight loss down and in some cases
stop it all together. Taking a good digestive enzyme may be
helpful and if you have been on an antidepressant for an
extended period of time, Candida is a road block to weight
loss. Try the JNK Capsules and Neuro Endure Mini first and if you
have daytime anxiety include the Adrenalpin.
If weight loss does not begin within 5 weeks add the extra
calcium and digestive enzymes. If weight loss still does not
begin after 5 more weeks, it is time to have a look at
Avoid frozen fish. The preservatives used in frozen fish
greatly activate the JNK gene. Of course, eat as many fruits
and veggies as you can but have a little fat with your meals
as well. The body needs fat in the diet. The Omega 3 Supreme
TG can also help with weight loss and be a source of the
good fats the body requires. The Omega 3 Supreme TG also
helps reduce the over activation of the JNK gene.
A study published in March 2001,
Long-term body weight outcomes of antidepressant environment
interactions, conducted by the University of Miami,
Miller School of Medicine, shows how stress can be the
activator of antidepressant weight gain. The weight gain can
start even if a person only used an antidepressant for a
short time and then discontinued the drug. One of the first
names used for the JNK gene was “the stress activated gene.”
the activation of the JNK gene is the first step, as long as
your food intake and some exercise is being done as well.
