Do you feel at the end of your rope when it comes to weight loss? You’re in good company.
What if I told you that even if you’re doing everything right, there might be something that is causing your body to hold your weight loss hostage?
In the following post, discover what you can do today to help you get to your personal best weight.
Losing weight requires sacrifice.
You must give up things that you believe make you happy, like pizza, french fries, and ice cream. This sacrifice is very hard for people who use food to comfort themselves and/or to have a good time.
There is a secret to losing weight — and it’s not to eat less and exercise more.
Eating less and exercising more can help you manage your weight, but there is one big thing that contributes to the fat you have stored on your body.
Blood sugar. Controlling your blood sugar by monitoring the food you ingest is really the key to weight loss.
When you eat sugar and carbohydrates, your body releases the hormone insulin (a fat storage hormone) to keep your blood sugar in the normal range. When your body is releasing insulin, you are essentially blocking your ability to lose weight.
The hormone glucagon (a fat burning hormone) works in opposition to insulin. When you eat high fiber, low-carbohydrate vegetables, lean proteins, and small amounts of healthy fats, you can keep your body in a glucagon dominant, or fat burning state, and effectively lose weight.
Studies have shown that weight loss is more successful when you have a partner, whether it’s a doctor, nutritionist, trainer, spouse, or friend. I believe it is because you have someone to talk to and to help you get back on track when you stumble. We are only human, and we all mess up. Having a supportive weight-loss partner to pick you up when you are down makes all the difference.
