Top Ten Reasons You Aren’t Losing Weight

STRESSHAIRSmallWould you like to know the top ten reasons there might be a barrier to your efforts at releasing weight. For a long time, and even still a main focus, people taught us that releasing weight was all about calories in versus calories out. Well, guess what, that is not true. It turns out that there are MANY factors that contribute to the inability to release weight. Here is a list of the TOP reasons:

  1. Restricting Your Diet ( if you starve your body it will hold onto weight)
  2. Insulin resistance – When there is too much glucose in the body, cells become desensitized to insulin, allowing blood sugar levels to become high. Prolonged high levels of insulin disrupts cellular metabolism, increases inflammation, and eventually the cells stop responding to the signal from insulin — creating insulin resistance. Diabetes is just one of the common diseases resulting from insulin resistance, and occurs when the body is unable to manage blood glucose levels.
  3. Toxicity (persistent organic pollutants. Toxins stored in fat tissue)
  4. Hormonal imbalance (beginning with stress)
  5. Stress (belly fat)
  6. Imbalance of gut bacteria
  7. Lack of physical activity
  8. Emotional eating
  9. Inflammatory Foods  (gluten and dairy)
  10. Food allergies and food sensitivities

HERE ARE MORE reasons for an inability to release weight

  1. Liver congestion
  2. Impaired digestion (add enzymes and probiotics)
  3. Excess alcohol (belly fat)
  4. Excess starchy carbohydrates, especially later in day (promotes cravings)
