Weight Loss Resistance

If you feel like you’re doing “everything right” but still struggle losing weight there may be a deeper reason. While a calorie deficit is needed to lose weight, it isn’t the only factor. To lose weight in a healthy manner and be able to keep it off easily you must work to balance your hormones, energy, and cravings. 

Do any of these sound like you?

  • I’ve been trying to lose weight most of my life
  • I eat right and exercise consistently and still can’t lose weight
  • It’s easy for the weight to come right back on as soon as I lose it
  • I struggle with cravings and energy levels often
  • I’m not confident that what I’m doing will work for me
  • I struggle to stick with anything for more than a couple weeks because I’m always hungry, feel deprived, or have no energy
Managing weight can be extremely frustrating and discouraging when you think of your body is like a bank account (calories in vs calories out). Think of your body more like a chemistry lab…just because something doesn’t have calories doesn’t mean it doesn’t send signals throughout your body.

Common Causes of Weight Loss Resistance:

  • Food sensitivities
  • Low-grade chronic inflammation
  • Stress
  • Hormone imbalance (insulin, ghrelin, leptin, thyroid, cortisol…)
  • Inadequate sleep (which leads to hormone imbalance)
  • Inadequate or too much exercise
  • Leptin resistance (leptin is the hormone that decreases hunger and cravings, increases metabolism, and inhibits fats storage
If you’ve tried “everything” and still struggle with your weight it might be time to look into underlying issues.

*I came to Leslie after many years of trying to lose weight on my own with little to no success. I could tell after our first meeting that she genuinely cared and wanted to help me, so I was immediately at ease and looking forward to working with her. She has taught me so much about listening to my body and what it's telling me about the foods I'm eating. I've learned more in the few short months of working with Leslie than I have in the many years of doing Weight Watchers, Atkins, calorie counting, etc. I now know what foods to avoid in order to feel better and allow my body to do what it's supposed to do. I'm looking forward to seeing less of me by this time next year thanks to Leslie!
