You’re doing everything correctly: count calories, reduce sugar intake, cut out refined foods, and hit the gym 3 times a week. Yet despite your most focused effort, those kilo’s refuse to budge.
Hit a roadblock in your weight-loss journey? When you stay consistently on course and weeks – even months – go by without the scales budging, that’s weight loss resistance. It’s your bodies way of telling you metabolically somethings not right. The best way to beat it is to get assessed.Tweet
The calories-in-calories-out model is outdated. It fails to account for the 120 hidden variables that can affect fat loss. Weight loss resistance is when you’re not losing one kilo of fat every week when doing everything right.
There are over 120 hidden causes of weight loss resistance, including pharmaceutical and over-the-counter medications, food allergies or sensitivities, thyroid or adrenal imbalances, microbiome and genetics. At MassAttack, we analyze your lab work and employ additional testing that reveals what sabotages your success.
The reality is: calories matter. If you eat too many calories from any food, your body stores those excess calories as fat. Weight loss resistance is triggered by something that many diet plans neglect or fail to understand: hormonal imbalances triggered by microbiome imbalance.Tweet
The truth is, calories matter, but hormones matter more. Hormone imbalances become a major but often overlooked culprit for weight gain and weight loss resistance. Most of those imbalances hinge on one big player: insulin. What many people don’t realize is insulin (your fat saving hormone) is released in response to the consumption of different foods and this response is different for everyone – depending on their unique microbiome. Even something like the humble tomato can be a hidden trigger of weight gain in some people! This is why I incorporate this testing as part of our resistant weight loss assessment.
