Man checking his weight
Weight loss can be tricky. We all know that we need to consume fewer calories than we burn, to lose weight. But sometimes - even when you are doing all the right things - that weight loss can come to a screeching halt.

This can happen for a number of reasons, but more often than not, it comes down to something that requires a serious Lifestyle Change.


Here are the most common, tried & true, yet not-so-obvious reasons, you're not losing weight.



You are stressed. “Stress is a silent killer". It released a stress hormone, cortisol. Which degrades muscle tissue and encourages the storage of fat. See: How to lower stress hormones and Stress survival guide

You're Not Getting Sleep 

Enough sleep reduces cortisol and produces a Growth Hormone (GH), which encourages fat loss, supports your immune system, and helps to keep your body functioning properly. Sleep balances hormones that control hunger. See: Healthy sleep tips 

You’re Not Drinking Enough Water. 

Drinking enough water helps with proper kidney function. Dehydration impairs kidneys & when kidneys aren't working properly, the liver picks up the slack. The liver is responsible for the metabolism of fat. Which means that fat cannot be metabolized as efficiently when your liver has to work twice as hard to remove toxins.

You Have Poor Digestion
