Weight Loss Resistance

Getting to the Bottom of Weight Loss Resistance

If you are someone who has used diet and exercise in the past to lose weight but felt like you could not keep the pounds off, then you are not alone. Weight loss resistance is the inability to keep the pounds off once you have lost them, or in the case of some, it is the inability to lose weight at all.

But you don’t need to worry—weight loss resistance is not an insurmountable obstacle that will keep you from your weight loss goals. With a better understanding of your body and some helpful tricks to get you over the hump, you will be down to your goal weight in no time flat.

Keep it steady
Steady weight loss is the key to permanent weight loss and getting over your weight loss resistance. Any plan that promises you can lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks is not only bad for your health, but bad for your weight loss as well. Studies suggest that losing 10 percent of your body weight, and then waiting 3 to 6 months before trying to lose another 10 percent is the best way to lose the pounds. This allows your body to adjust to its new resting weight, making it easier to lose more effectively.

Get your doctor involved
If you are following a healthy diet low fat full of fruits and vegetables, working out regularly and still aren’t seeing results, it may be time to see your doctor. Not only can they help you rule out serious medical issues like diabetes, your doctor may even be able to give you tips specific to you and your body to get those last few stubborn pounds off.

Stick to the plan

When you are eating right and working out at least 3 times a week and haven’t seen results, it can be frustrating. No two people are the same when it comes to weight loss. So if your diet buddy has lost 5 pounds and you haven’t, don’t get discouraged. It might just take your body a little longer to adjust to the chances. The most important thing you can do is to stick to your routine.
