Why am I NOT LOSING WEIGHT | Best Way to Lose Weight After a Plateau | Why Can’t I Lose weight


Why am I not losing weight why can’t i lose weight Best way to lose weight what’s going on guys in today’s video I want to go over
exactly why it is that you’re stuck and you can’t lose any more weight one of the number one questions that I
get from my clients is why did I plateau why can’t I lose this last bit of body
fat and usually the conclusion that most people jump to is some variation of
there’s something wrong with me and it wasn’t meant to be some examples of this
kind of thinking is oh I’m naturally big bones so no matter what I do I’m never
going to lose any fat or I’m just too old to look the way that I used to look
in my twenties or another common one I’ve always been fat pretty much my
whole life so that’s probably not going to change that little negative voice is
inside all of our heads and attaches itself to all different areas of our
lives that same voice wants you to quit and seek comfort as quickly and as
painlessly as possible it gives you all the reasons why you
can’t do it i’m here to tell you that that voice is an absolute lie and you
can’t listen to it I’ve seen so many people come to me and
say that they can’t lose any more weight and eventually because they didn’t give
up they had their breakthrough the tricky
thing about having a breakthrough is that you can’t give someone a
breakthrough all i could do for example is . someone
in the right direction and the breakthrough is entirely something that
has to happen within that person only they can make it happen the only way to stand a chance at
reaching that breakthrough is to not give up so that’s your first step that starting
to lose weight again just don’t give up a lot of people want
to go from one to attend in regard to their physical aesthetics but the truth
that most fitness advertiser’s don’t want you to know is that you can go from
a1 to attend without going through two three four five six seven eight and nine there’s no other way to do it this is
not an overnight project you have to have plenty of time to make mistakes and
feel out what exactly works and what doesn’t work for you the next thing that you want to do is
start tracking every single thing that you eat people that think that they know
how many calories are eating throughout the day I are always blown away once they
actually start tracking it and how wrong they were find out how many calories and how many
macros you should be eating daily through a calorie calculator app and
make sure you hit those numbers every single day you can also try to cycle your calories
daily to help your body constantly be confused and never adjust to a set
amount of calories one thing to remember is that when you
drastically under eat it doesn’t help you lose weight in the long run you may lose a quick couple pounds in
the beginning but then your results will very easily plateau and you’ll probably
gain all that weight back make sure you only cut your calories
when you plateau and you cut it by small increments your workouts are another
huge thing that could be a big cause for why you’re not getting any results when was the last time that you
drastically changed your workout I’m not talking about replacing lunges for
squats or dumbbell presses for barbell presses I’m talking about changing the entire
structure of the workout when you want to bust through a plateau your workout
has to change big time compared to what it was before your plateau you can
adjust your workout by changing intensity sets reps Rep tempo duration and time under
tension you can also throw in drop set super
sets and even giant sets there really a lot of ways that you can change your
workout to break through a plateau but the point is is that it has to change
drastically to really shock your body now if you’re exercising and tracking
what you eat and you’re still not losing any weight the problem may lie in your hormones
rather than what you’re actually doing there are a ton of hormones that could
block our body’s ability to lose weight and they’re mostly released when we’re
stressed cortisol is one of the main hormones that will prevent us from
losing weight and is released when our body is under heavy amounts of stress
from a number of different things including lack of sleep too much
exercise eating the wrong foods and situations in our lives that cause us to
worry a lot there are a lot of other hormones that
can affect weight loss like testosterone estrogen progesterone ghrelin and leptin
and the list just goes on and on rather than confusing you and going into
all the technicalities of your hormones I’d rather just get straight to the
point and tell you what you can do to balance them out first and most
importantly start with your diet identify not only what you’re allergic
to but also what you’re sensitive to some
people have sensitivities to glue and dairy nuts lectins found in grains and all kinds of
other things different people have trouble digesting different things and
when we eat these things that our bodies have trouble digesting our bodies become
stressed out and cortisol is release our balance of testosterone and estrogen can
be affected by things like high fructose corn syrup non organic meats processed meats and
dairy that comes from animals that are pumped full of hormones especially
growth hormone if you eat dairy products or for some
other people grains and you feel like garbage afterwards you may want to try to remove that from
your diet use this approach for all other food groups that your body may be
sensitive to helping your hormones however isn’t only limited to
eliminating food it’s also adding certain food groups in for example when
people are dieting a lot of times they remove fat from their diet almost
entirely and that’s a really bad move because fat is responsible for the
production of a lot of those good hormones that will end up helping us
lose weight so if you’re eating a very low fat diet try adding some healthy
fats in such as avocados another thing you can try to do is try
to have a lot of protein and a lot of fiber in every single meal this way you spike your metabolic rate
and also balance your estrogen levels in general you must switch to a natural
diet for your body you definitely are not going to be able
to lose anyway or break any plateaus by eating junk and processed foods when
eating foods high in vitamins antioxidants and dents in nutrients you
give your body what it needs to begin healing itself find what is natural for your individual
body through experimentation like I said this is going to take some
time once you fix up your diet you really want to work on your stress
levels make sure you’re getting at least six to
eight hours of sleep a night if you’re not weight training then you
should start because you release many hormones that are necessary for weight
loss during and after a weight training workout try meditation yoga or sitting
in a sauna first thing in the morning to relax and unwind for the rest of the day
if you can get your body out of that fight-or-flight mode and you will begin
to shed those extra pounds again guys unfortunately that’s all the info that i
