Millions of women feel like they have tried everything when it comes to losing weight. From dieting, fasting, intense exercise regimens, juice cleanses, and more, nothing seems to work. Even if they do manage to lose weight, many women also struggle to keep the weight off. After dozens of failed diets, it can start to feel like madness.
Why is this such a challenge?
Well, what many weight loss programs, fitness fanatics, and nutritionists don’t know is that stress is the #1 reason for weight gain, and they fail to factor that into their strategies.
Stress: The Biggest Culprit for Weight Gain
Stress is the #1 biggest culprit for weight gain, even after you’ve lost weight. Many weight loss programs fail to address this. In fact, most weight loss programs encourage overexercising and undereating in order to lose weight.
Unfortunately, this puts your body into an even deeper state of stress, and actually slows your metabolism. As a result, it becomes even harder to lose weight than before.
This can cause a number of potential imbalances that will only serve to exacerbate the issue.
This keeps women in an endless cycle of dieting to lose pounds, gaining them back, and starting the process all over again.
Where the Body Stores Fat When Stressed
Many women complain about excess fat in their bellies, thighs, arms, neck, or buttocks. This is because your body is trying to keep you alive. When your body is in a state of survival, it reacts by storing excess fat as a sort of surplus of energy to save for later.
Unfortunately, our biology’s attempt of survival typically results in a number of imbalances that make it harder to lose weight.
Imbalances as a Result of Stress
If you’re chronically stressed, gaining weight, and in a state of survival, you’ll likely experience the following imbalances:
- Spikes in cortisol (a stress hormone)
- Increased blood sugar
- High levels of insulin
- Inflammation in the gut
- Fatigue or low energy
- Brain fog
- Chronic headaches
- Problems with sleep
- Joint pain
So how do we address these issues at the root?
The answer is eating the right foods to fuel your body.
Losing pounds is entirely nutrition-related. Cutting calories and exercising more to remedy the problem is actually counterintuitive. In fact, it can make these stress-related issues even worse.
Why am I Experiencing Menopause Weight Gain?
When women hit menopause, many experience menopause weight gain. This is due to the hormonal changes that come with menopause.
Many peri or post-menopausal women turn to intense exercise regimens or dieting in order to lose pounds.
There’s another way.
At the Metabolism Reboot, our program is structured to help women shave off pounds and keep them off. Luckily, this can be done in a sustainable way that actually helps your body, instead of working against it.
