Ask yourself, are your hormones preventing you from losing weight? Are they causing you to gain weight too? Can you blame your failed weight loss attempts on them? Have you been saying to yourself, “I’m doing everything right, like eating healthy and exercising, but nothing is working! What’s wrong with me?”
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU!
Here’s the secret that fad diet companies won’t tell you – it’s not you, it’s your hormones.
Mix hormone imbalances with certain lifestyle habits, biological issues AND genetic predispositions (which in turn can cause hormone imbalances) and you’ve got a perfect storm for stubborn fat that won’t go away no matter how ‘good’ you are at eating right and exercising five days a week. When you stick to a strict menu of wholesome healthy foods and regular consistent exercise for weeks or months only to see little or no change in your body, there’s definitely something else going on. We call this phenomenon, WEIGHT LOSS RESISTANCE.
Women come to us all the time seeking help for this very problem, the inability to lose weight, without knowing what the problem really is. It is one of the main frustrations we hear every single day and the defeated looks on our clients faces break our hearts.
But that defeated look changes the moment we tell them the truth no one else is willing to tell them – it’s not you, it’s your hormones! And we have the best solution for long-term successful weight loss, Our NEW Weight Loss Program, which includes genetic testing.
Weight loss is unique to all of us, and so is weight gain. Our goal is to delve deep into your biology to understand why you are gaining weight and/or unable to lose weight, the root causes of your weight management issues. Then we create a weight loss program customized to your biology… and your genetics!
What do we look for when treating
Weight Loss Resistance?
Are You Mindfully Eating?
Mindful eating is when you take your time chewing your food, eat in a calm environment when feeling completely relaxed.
Are You Drinking Enough Water?
Water helps rid your body of toxins, build resilience to stress, enhances metabolism, reduces inflammation, and promotes satiety. This is usually our first recommendation in our very first appointment with you!
Do You Have a Nutrient Deficiency?
You may be surprised to learn that a vitamin deficiency can cause you to hold onto excess weight. Sometimes it’s a matter of not getting enough vitamins and minerals through your diet and sometimes clients have a hard time absorbing essential vitamins and mineral, like iron and vitamin D. This is one of the reasons we include a comprehensive blood test in our weight loss programs. Don’t take supplements for no reason! Let the lab results, and our vitality experts, tell you what you need.
Are Your Blood Sugars Imbalanced?
Have you ever been diagnosed with insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, or diabetes? Are you genetically predisposed to diabetes? High blood sugars cause insulin release, which is a fat storing hormone. To tackle this problem, include healthy fats and quality proteins with every meal.
Maybe it’s Inflammation?
When you’re suffering from inflammation your body is busy addressing the inflammatory tissues rather than working on losing weight. What causes inflammation? This answer, again, is complicated and unique to you. Simply put, food sensitivities and intolerances are major culprits to rule out.
Do You Need to Detox?
Toxins! They are everywhere. In our food, on our shoes, in the food we eat and beauty products we use. It’s not easy to eliminate all toxins from our lives, but a detox can help eliminate them from your body and get you moving towards your body goals.
What’s Going On with Your Hormones?
Imbalances in estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can all contribute to weight gain. So can leptin resistance. Another complex issue we address through comprehensive medical tests and assessments that will get you in the know and on the right track.
Is Your Thyroid to Blame?
Your thyroid, in a nutshell, helps regulate your metabolism. If it’s not functioning optimally, your weight loss goals will seem like an uphill battle.
What About Stress?
Chronic high stress will cause cortisol imbalance (that pesky hormone issue again!). Excess cortisol roaming around your body can cause you to store more weight in your belly. Having troubles losing stubborn belly fat? Stress could be your problem!
Are You Getting Enough Sleep?
Most of us don’t and wonder why we aren’t able to focus throughout the day, not to mention lose weight. Sleep is like the ultimate reset button. It helps you heal faster, manage stress better, balance hormones easier, and lose weight without the extra effort. Imagine all the things you could accomplish if you slept eight hours every night?
And finally, Are Your GENETICS Making You FAT?
We talked about this in last week’s newsletter and it’s one of our favourite science backed long-term weight loss tools because it gives us an in-depth view of how your body handles ALL OF THE ABOVE reasons you may not be losing weight.
Like we said at the beginning of this article, you may be doing everything fad diets are telling you to do in order to lose weight… and keep it off, but if your body is imbalanced, lacking something, genetically predisposed to certain issues, or not functioning optimally, you’re not going to succeed.
So, if you’ve done everything right and still need answers, our Vitality Experts can help you!
