Why You Can’t Lose Weight (And How to Fix It)
Remember how easy it used to be to lose weight?
You’d cut back a little on food… exercise a bit more… and the fat would just fall off.
These days, it feels like you have to struggle for every pound.
It’s actually a scientific fact that losing weight gets harder as you grow older.
But that doesn’t mean you have to give up.
Because I’m going to show you a PROVEN way to shed those stubborn pounds… at ANY age.
Medical scientists will tell you it's harder to lose weight as you grow older because of hormonal changes (in both men and women) and loss of metabolism.
But this doesn't happen to everyone.
There are ways to balance your hormones and maintain your metabolism – if you know what you're doing.
The first thing to know is that your metabolism is closely related to your muscle mass.
That means the more muscle mass you have, the higher your metabolism.
One of the best ways to lose weight is to increase your muscle mass by exercising and lifting weights. But exercise alone is not enough.
Here are some other ways to rev up your metabolism:
Dr. Scott’s Find Your Lost Metabolism Program:
- Protein: Make sure you are eating or supplementing with a good quality protein to help build those muscles.
- Supplement with hormone balancers: The herbs African mango, ashwagandha, and saffron all help to kick-start your metabolism and reign in those unruly hormones.
- Take metabolism boosters:
- Chromium: This mineral helps to balance blood sugar and boost metabolism.
- Berberine: This herb is also well known to super-charge metabolism.
- Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG): This an extract found in green tea that has been shown to help support good metabolism.
