4 REASONS YOU’RE NOT LOSING WEIGHT
Have you changed your diet but you are still not losing weight? Today I’m sharing the most common reasons I find that my clients are still not losing weight, even after adopting a real food diet
REASON #1 WHY YOU ARE NOT LOSING WEIGHT: YOUR BODY IS OPERATING FROM AN ENERGY DEFICIT.
When there is a chronic energy deficit (fewer calories coming in than going out), over time the body starts thinking food is scarce. This results in the body holding on to fat as a way to protect itself. To make an analogy, think of your body like a house.
If you’re not making enough money to pay your electricity bill, what do you do? Well, you turn down the heat in your house to compensate.
The body operates in a similar way. When there are not enough calories coming in, the body saves energy by reducing body temperature (slowing the metabolism), turning down digestive juices (making digestion weaker), reducing the pulse, and slowing thyroid function(resulting in less energy). This is a built-in survival response by the body, to help you go longer on less food. This is often induced through calorie counting and dieting.
REASON #2 WHY YOU ARE NOT LOSING WEIGHT: YOU’RE NOT HEALTHY YET.
Weight loss is not a priority when your body and internal organs are not nourished. You can’tshort-cut to weight loss, it should come only after the body is healthy enough to do it naturally.
