When Dieting & Exercise Don’t Work
If you’re reading this page then most likely you’ve been struggling to lose weight.
So far you might have tried dieting. You might have tried shakes. And you might have tried exercise. But it seems no matter what you try nothing works like it did in the past.
So what do you do when dieting and exercise no longer work?
You need to dig deeper and discover the reasons as to why your body won’t burn fat. That’s what you need to do.
While what you eat and how much you exercise are definitely important they aren’t the whole story. There are many other factors that affect your metabolism and can shut down fat burning.
The number one reason is your hormones.
You have your fat storage hormone (insulin), your sex hormones (oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone), your thyroid hormone and your stress hormone (cortisol) that affect the speed of your metabolism.
If any of these become unbalanced, either you make too much or too little, then your metabolism suffers.
Hormonal imbalances occur because of the life you lead. And while you’ve no doubt been told your hormones are going to decline with age, it’s not so much you getting older that’s the problem but more it’s what’s happened to you over your life that counts.
Throughout life there’s been…
- bills to pay
- kids to raise
- work to go to
- meals to make
- traffic to negotiate
- relationships to maintain or escape
- deaths of loved ones
- and many other physical and emotional demands for you to contend with
So after decades of dealing with this sort of stress your body’s not going to run like it used to.
No longer can you eat what you like to and not put on weight. And increasing your exercise levels now only makes you fitter not slimmer.
And this is why testing is critical.
If you have unbalanced hormones that you don’t know about then you’re going to struggle with your weight. It’s going to get very frustrating as you try all the different diets such as Low Carb, Shakes, Low Calorie, Low Fat, No Sugar, Paleo, Gluten Free and not see any result for all the deprivation you put yourself through.
And it gets equally as frustrating if you’re sweating your butt off doing boot camps, spin and pump classes, personal training and 10,000 steps a day and not losing any weight.
So as I just mentioned if you’ve got some unidentified imbalance you need to pinpoint ASAP otherwise you’re just never going get anywhere let alone maintain your figure long term.
But the tests you need are not the regular ones you get done by your GP. Those tests are designed to identify diseases. You though most likely don’t have a disease. Which is why if you’ve had some testing done already the results have come back ‘normal’.
The tests you need are what we call ‘functional’ tests. This type of testing pinpoints ‘dysfunctions’ that is when your body is just not functioning right but you’re not sick. Dysfunctions can however have a massive impact on you though. They might not be life threatening but they can absolutely be life ruining.
If you keep putting on weight and you feel tired, bloated and sluggish all the time them life can become pretty miserable.
But the good news is the right tests can unlock your weight loss resistance mystery and puts you on the path to finally achieving your dream figure.
To discover if hormonal imbalances are stopping your body from burning away your unwanted body fat all you need to do is call us today and organise a time for a Fat Belly To Flat Belly assessment consultation.
During your 60 minute consultation with me I will thoroughly assess…
- Your current weight loss problems
- Your diet and exercise habits
- Your previous medical and lifestyle history
- Your body composition (fat, muscle & fluid levels) and the health of your cells
And also determine what special functional (not regular pathology) tests you’ll need to do so I can determine with laser like accuracy what hormonal imbalances are holding you back.
Then once I have all this critical information I can develop an individualised plan that fits your needs and lifestyle, but kick-starts your metabolism naturally, so you can achieve your dream figure.
If you are not local we offer phone and Skype consultations.
