4 Reasons You Can’t Lose Weight
We all want to be one of those people who can lose weight fast.
But you starve yourself… you work out like crazy… and the scale just doesn’t budge.
But, believe it or not, there are four main factors that determine whether you can lose weight… or whether your diet is doomed to failure.
And understanding these factors is the key to finally losing the weight… and keeping it off for good.
There are four things that can change how fast you lose weight.
#1. Your Current Weight: Your body mass is an important determinant for how quickly you lose weight. It actually works in reverse: the more body weight you have, the easier it is to lose. If you are trying to lose those last few pounds, they can be very sticky. This doesn’t mean you should gain weight before you lose it, but you need to be patient as weight comes off: the more you lose, the harder it will be.
#2. Your Lifestyle: Some people have lots of time to devote to lifestyle changes, others don’t. Remember that stress and sleep are a big part of weight loss – if you are running around and not getting enough sleep, this too can slow down (or stop) your weight loss. The more time you devote to exercising, sleeping, relaxing, and eating well, the more weight you will lose.
#3. Your Muscle Mass: You’ve heard me say it many times, your muscle mass means a lot to your weight loss. Men typically have more muscle than women, so they often lose weight much easier. When you are thinking about a weight loss program, consider exercising to build muscle: this can be as simple as walking or even adding weight training to your exercise regimen.
Your Hormonal Health: There are four hormones important for weight loss: ghrelin, leptin, cortisol, and adiponectin. These hormones can either help or hurt you in your weight loss efforts. Ghrelin is a hormone made in the stomach that tells our body we are full. Leptin is made in our fat cells and blocks hunger. Adiponectin is also produced by fat cells, but it helps to regulate blood sugar and the burning of fats. Cortisol is the “stress” hormone that causes us to gain weight.
Balancing hormones is the key to quick weight loss.
There are a few nutrients that can help balance hormonal health and speed weight loss.
Let’s take a look:
African Mango: It helps to promote weight loss by balancing our hormones and making our cells more receptive to leptin (the hormone that tells us when we’re full).
Ashwagandha: An herbal remedy that has been used for thousands of years to help balance metabolism. It helps to reduce physical, emotional, and mental stress and fatigue, while boosting energy.
Saffron Extract: This extract works by balancing levels of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin and helps improve mood. It supports a healthy body weight by targeting emotional factors associated with weight gain.
