New Year’s has come and gone but those pounds you swore off have not. You’re not alone though- Americans gain up to 60% of their annual weight during the holidays! Have you tried eating better and exercising more but your metabolism is not following suit?
If you eat less and exercise more and your body doesn’t shift, then something in your basal metabolic rate is stubborn. This does not mean you should throw in the towel! It can be reset with the proper guidance.
If you changed your diet and increased activity with no weight change, it means your biochemistry needs guidance. Metabolic rates tend to only budge for a short period of time with “traditional diets,” but with advanced guided Progressive nutrition, it can be reset permanently.
Don’t ignore your metabolism. Figure out how to make it rev! Difficulty losing weight can be telling of other issues going on, such as dysfunction with your thyroid, adrenal glands, or even dysbiotic flora in your gut. Toxicity can shut off metabolism and increase risk of heart disease as well as auto-immune conditions. Fixing these issues not only may help you lose weight, but will also set you up for a healthier future! A well oiled metabolic machine is a body that is positioned for long term health and wellness.
