Why do so many of us find it hard to lose weight, especially after our mid-30s? Have you found yourself following diet after diet, skipping the 3 PM snacks and working out regularly, and yet you find no weight loss when you step on the scale?

Don’t worry, you are not alone. Many men and women experience insulin and weight resistance once they are in their mid-30s and some are as young as in their 20s. We can help you learn why you are not losing weight and give you steps you can take to begin your fat loss process. We have summarized the 5 common reasons that are standing in your way to a leaner and healthier you.

Sleep: If you are not getting 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep per night, your hormones are compromised, and you are at risk for obesity.

Gut Health: Keeping healthy gut bacteria is key to reducing bloating and promoting healthy nutrient absorption, weight management and bowel movements.

Imbalanced Hormones: Food cravings, fluid retention, fatigue, and fat gain are often the result of hormones not being balanced for men and women. How can you stop binge eating if your hormones are causing your cravings and hunger?

Hidden Food Allergies: Food sensitivities cause inflammation and poor absorption thru the gut wall resulting in stress, joint pain, allergic reactions and fatigue, which often leads to cravings and fatigue. A science-based food elimination diet really helps the weight come off.

Artificial Sweeteners: Break your addiction with aspartame and diet drinks as the artificial sweeteners can cause insulin resistance and depletion of nutrients from your body resulting in further cravings and weight gain in the mid-section area.
