Top Thing That Holds People Back From Losing Weight and Maintaining It


In today’s world, there are so many diets and weight loss trends trying to get your attention. Many of them tell you that losing weight starts with eating less. While food plays a massive role in weight loss and weight gain, most diet plans encourage the wrong things. 

Most weight loss programs focus on “how much” a person should eat, rather than focusing on what exactly a person should eat. While it’s true that cutting calories can cause you to lose weight, it is not a long-term healthy solution to being overweight. It can actually cause a variety of health issues, eventually leading to weight gain again.  

The Metabolism Reboot is a program that’s focused on building healthy habits that lead to long-term, sustainable weight loss. On average, our clients lose 20 to 45 pounds in 6 weeks. From our experience, here is the top thing that holds people back from losing weight and keeping it off.

Why Am I Not Losing Weight and Keeping It Off?

If you have any experience dieting, you have probably experienced some success cutting calories, only to put the weight back on weeks later. You may be wondering, “Why am I not losing weight and maintaining it?

The biggest reason people struggle to lose weight and keep it off starts with a lack of understanding of how food and nutrition work in the body.  It’s not about calories in and calories out. Most diets encourage you to think about how much you’re eating rather than what foods you’re putting in your body. Natural, real foods without preservatives or processing are key to good health, and, inevitably, weight loss. 

Here is a metaphor for how most people misunderstand the relationship between food and weight loss: 

Let’s say you bought a new plant for your child to take care of. He has never taken care of one before. He may have seen you feed liquid to one of your plants but didn’t understand what exactly you were feeding it. What if he decided to feed the plant gasoline instead of water? Would it matter “how much” they put in? Or would the plant die or get sick either way? 

If you are feeding your body processed, unhealthy foods with the “correct” amount of calories, weight loss is not a guarantee. This will likely create hormone imbalances, causing a lack of energy and other health-related issues. Basically, even if you were to lose weight with a caloric deficit, it is not a sustainable and healthy option.

Losing Weight Fast with a Healthy Diet

When it comes to losing weight fast, your first thought should be, “What foods will make me healthier?”. Eating healthy looks like:

  • proteins like beef, pork, poultry, eggs, dairy, and seafood 
  • Vegetables of your choice
  • Whole grains
  • Legumes, nuts, and seeds
  • Fruits of your choice

Natural, real foods serve to balance the body. They are packed with nutrients and antioxidants that support immune health, can help to prevent overeating, are good for your gut, and so much more. When a body is healthy and satiated, natural weight loss can occur.
