5 Reasons You’re Not losing weight and, what YOU can do about it.

. NOW is the time to make simple changes to your lifestyle that will reap major benefits in your health AND your waistline.
However, sometimes doing all the “right” things can still yield minimal weight loss. And there’s nothing more frustrating than getting on the scale after a week of deprivation and butt-kicking 5 am workouts only to see the needle in the same position it was a week ago.

Here are 5 possible reasons you’re not losing weight:

1. You’re not eating balanced enough

There used to be an old adage about eating a “balanced breakfast” that included a disgustingly sweet bowl of processed cereal, pancakes with {fake} syrup, and toast with {factory farmed} bacon and eggs, all washed down with a big old glass of OJ.

Here’s a secret…

It really wasn’t balanced. Or healthy. 5reasons
Eating balanced simply means to include a healthy fat, carb, and protein source at each meal or snack. This keeps your blood sugar in check and your appetite satiated, PLUS brings more variety into your daily intake.
For example, a perfectly balanced meal would look like:
Roasted chicken {protein}, with a side of greens {healthy carb} sautéed in coconut oil {healthy fat}, and a baked sweet potato {healthy carb} with a teaspoon of grass-fed butter {healthy fat}.
BOOM! Dinner is done.

2. You’re doing the wrong kinds of exercise

Humans evolved as a hunter – gatherer species that had to run around spearing giant mammoths for survival and food. We are built to run, lift, and stay active doing things that challenge our muscles and in short bursts.

3. You’ve lost sight of your goals

We’re a stressed out society, and if you’re in good company if you reach for the nearest pint of Ben & Jerry’s when the going gets tough. While this sugar fix is a GREAT {super} short-term fix to make you “feel” better {sugar is a drug – the end}, it totally wrecks your weight loss efforts and ends up making you feel worse than you did to begin with.
Try reconnecting with your goals on a daily basis. Write down your “WHY” in a prominent place so you can see it and be inspired by it ALL.THE. TIME. Then, when Ben comes a-sabotogin’ with his devilish Cherry Garcia, you can resist. Think you can’t control your will power?  This might make you think twice about your ability to resist temptation.

4. You’re not sleeping enough

The majority of the energy, repair, and restoration that your body gets occurs when you’re counting sheep. Sleep is critical to rejuvenate your metabolism, digest food, fight bacteria and infections, and keep you healthy. Geeking out a bit more, insufficient sleep impacts your hunger and fullness hormones, including two called ghrelin and leptin. Ghrelin signals your brain that it’s time to eat. When you’re sleep-deprived, your body makes more ghrelin. Leptin, on the other hand, cues your brain to put the fork down. When you’re not getting enough sleep, leptin levels plummet, signaling your brain to eat more food.
Is it any wonder sleep deprivation leads to stalled weight loss? Aim for at LEAST 7-8 hours of sleep per night.

5. You’re not drinking enough water

Water trumps food when it comes to the survival factor. Scientifically, you can only go about 48 hours without water before you’re suffering severe dehydration. You can go for about 3 weeks without much food. Water is essential for literally every bodily function – it filters toxins, softens your poo {so you don’t end up constipated}, hydrates your organs, liquefies blood and blood platelets, satisfies the palate, and cleanses the body. Aim for half of your body weight in ounces. For example, you’re 150 pounds, aim for 75 ounces of filtered water per day.

Still stuck? We’ve got your back.

Body Wraps Feed your body the minerals it CRAVES, while also eliminating the toxins you expose yourself to EVERYDAY.

 

Our body wraps use a detoxifying mineral solution that when absorbed into the body, extracts toxins from between the fat cells, and restores much needed nutrients to the body. As toxins are removed, empty pockets are formed and the compression of our advanced wrapping technique creates inch loss, nourishes, tightens and tones the skin.

Our Body Wraps Significantly increase your own efforts for weight loss, simply by doing a Body Wrap either before starting a new weight loss goal, or if you have been stuck at a current weight for some time and just need a jump start then We can help. We have different wraps tailored to meet all goals. So Make an appointment TODAY, you’ll be glad you did!
