Told to Eat Less: Exercise More.Sustainable weight loss success is more complex than that


Our culture is currently obsessed with searching for the latest and greatest new diet to lose weight fast!

Diet concept in tag cloudDaily, we obsess about what we eat, what new diet we’re trying; always starting a new diet hoping that this one will result in lasting weight gain.

This becomes a hamster wheel of Yo-Yo dieting, Losing weight and then regaining it all and more. Each time despairing and belittling yourself so being unable to keep that weight off. Feeling like a failure, blaming yourself for being weak willed, lacking discipline etc.

What if I told you that it is not your fault and that the Diet industry is deliberating withholding important information from you? The diet industry actually thrives on your failures!! I am so tired of the same old weight loss advice of Eat Less and Exercise more. 

Please understand that your health and weight is about so much more than following the latest diet!  

I have identified that here are at least 13 factors that can influence how much weight you gain and your chances of sustainable weight loss success. Without these factors  in balance lasting sustainable weightloss success is difficult to achieve.

These include;

  1. Stress
  2. Emotional triggers
  3. Subconscious belief systems that cause you to self-sabotage your “diet”
  4. Lack of sufficient Self Care
  5. Hormonal Imbalances
  6. Insulin Resistance
  7. Low Thyroid Function
  8. Adrenal Fatigue
  9. Insufficient or poor Sleep
  10. Vitamin D3 deficiency
  11. Wheat and grain Sensitivity
  12. Food allergies
  13. Poor Blood Sugar Metabolism

Off these 13 factors that  I believe that Emotional eating/triggers, Subconscious beliefs, Stress effects and the resultant hormonal imbalances are the biggest factors affecting your lack of weight loss success. Understanding these 4 factors initially will significantly help you to lose excess fat as well as  improve your health at the same time.

Trying to lose weight by following rigid and extreme diets  frequently results in fatigue, frustration and increasingly slow metabolism. Generally you lose some weight and then regain it all again. Each time you go on a diet it gets harder and harder to achieve any lasting results.By understanding how all of these factors affect your weight and your health and vitality>

But I can almost hear you groaning as you say  “how do I know which of these is effecting me”!  Don’t worry!! I have got you covered!

Over the next few weeks I will be regularly posting about how each one of these factors can be preventing you from the sustainable weightloss success you deserve.
