5 Reasons You Aren’t Losing Weight
After two weeks, you didn’t notice much of a difference. No worries, just increase your cardio, and you should be good to go.
Perhaps, or maybe you are like most of us and are experiencing one of the 5 things listed below. Who knows. However, if the body is properly functioning and in a balanced state, then you will lose weight with an adjustment in activity or a decrease in caloric intake. Unfortunately, millions of people are out of balance, and don’t even realize it. Take a look below, and see if you think you might be experiencing one of following.
- Adrenal Fatigue
Ah, the adrenal glands. These two tiny little structures lie on top of the kidneys. They are responsible for releasing several hormones that increase energy and metabolism and improve cognitive function.
What happens when they are overused??
They tend not to release enough or the right amount of neurotransmitters that are responsible for energy and a balanced metabolism. In other words, you are tired all of the time, and gain fat easily.
How do they get overused?
One of the main reasons for Adrenal Overuse is lack of sleep combined with high caffeine use. Sound familiar? Stress is also a major culprit in this game.
So what do you do?
Get more sleep and workout less. Take time away from the gym so your body can repair itself.
- Thyroid Imbalance
Your Thyroid hormone is also responsible for helping to regulate the metabolic processes of the body. However, if it is not working properly, it may be IMPOSSIBLE for you to lose weight! The good news is that a simple ingredient can help.
The cool thing about Kelp is that it contains Iodine. Iodine is absorbed and used by the Thyroid. If you don’t have enough Iodine, the Thyroid is not going to work properly.
FYI: If you take Kelp or Iodine, it can help prevent you from getting cancer when exposed to radiation. Your Thyroid is a magnet for radiation. However, if your Thyroid is already full of Iodine, then there isn’t any room for it to absorb any radiation.
- Not Drinking Enough Water
Do you ever get hungry out of nowhere? It could be that you are thirsty. Your body sends the same signal to your brain for hunger that it does for thirst. Fix: Drink a 6-8oz cup of water before every meal. You should find that you are eating less, and are less hungry.
- Free Radical Damage
Free radicals are scavengers left over from metabolic processes and foreign bodies. They bind to healthy cells, and either destroy them or cause a slight mutation. Over time, these mutations lead to the aging of cells. What does this have to do with fat loss??
If your body is having to spend extra time battling free radicals, then it won’t devote much time to losing weight. Not to mention that the processes that are needed for a healthy metabolism can be destroyed by Free Radicals.
What do you do?
Take more antioxidants, and drink more water to keep your system “flushed out.”
New research is starting to show that excessive inflammation is not only detrimental to your health, but that it can make you FAT!!
When the body is in an inflamed state, it is harder for normal processes to take place, including waste and fat removal. However, there is hope. Eating less sugar, enough sleep, and drinking plenty of water can reduce inflammation.
There are many factors that contribute to fat gain. If you aren’t addressing most of them, chances are that if you are overweight, it will be harder for you to lose weight. However, there are some supplements, like DEXE BRN-XR, that combat several of these factors, and help you to even the playing field!
