我见过几百个减肥客户，who before seeing me tried everything under the sun to lose weight.Some of my clients even have the perfect diet but still were struggling to shift weight.Weight loss doesn't always come down to calories in vs calories out.There are numerous things that could be going on in your body which can affect weight loss,this is what I educate my clients about to help them reach their weight loss goals.And today I'm going to touch on a few of these for you.
1) You're under eating or have tried too many low calorie/starvation diets
This is mistake that a lot of dieters make.Just because you're on a"饮食”这并不意味着你每顿饭都要吃一小口。Eating very little makes your body store whatever you eat as fat — just the opposite of what you want.It also causes your metabolism to slow down,making it more difficult for you to lose weight.
I've seen many female clients who have a really good diet but just aren't eating enough to support their energy requirements,or they've tried so many diets in the past which are low calorie that they have now negatively affected their metabolism.长期食用低热量食物或限制性饮食会造成某种代谢损伤。This is one of the reasons why people experience plateaus.
What I recommend:Seeking professional help from a澳门金沙游艺城qualified nutritionist谁能教你如何用食物治愈你的关系？to help you nourish your body with real natural whole foods.(P.S.我很高兴见到你，如果这是你的斗争！).
2) Under active thyroid (hypothyroidism)
You might not realize the reason you're feeling tired,sluggish,constipated or have difficulties with concentration or deal with cold hands and feet might be due to a sluggish/under active thyroid.甲状腺反应迟缓会减缓新陈代谢，从而导致体重增加。在新西兰，许多人不吃正确的食物来支持甲状腺健康（即碘和硒）we also lack these nutrients in our soils.如果没有意识到这一点，也没有将这些食物纳入你的饮食，这可能会影响你的甲状腺健康。
What I recommend:Getting a blood test done to check your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) levels,T3 levels and T4 levels,then going to see a holistic practitioner with these results.Often doctors say that your levels are fine,when in fact they might be skewed towards one side or the other.也，incorporate 3 brazil nuts into your diet daily to ensure you're getting your daily dose of selenium,在沙拉或烤蔬菜上撒些海带盐，or snack on nori sheets and brown rice sushi to bump up your iodine levels.
3) You're too stressed
When you are stressed your body going into the ‘fight or fight' response.When this happens regularly your body releases cortisol,a fat storing hormone.It's important to put aside 10-15 minutes each day for yourself to unwind and de-stress!This is important for helping to nourish your adrenal glands and signalling the nervous system to kick into the parasympathetic ‘rest and digest' response.
What I recommend:You could try to meditate (even if it's just for 5 minute),I like to put my靠墙站着for 15 minutes every night.其他选项包括阅读,a walk around the block,洗个澡，或者只是坐着专注于你的呼吸，allowing your belly to rise and fall (breathing in for 4 counts,hold,then breathe out for 4 counts,do this 10 times).Try to do this 2-3 times throughout the day to you relax,unwind and be present.
4) Hormonal Imbalance
荷尔蒙失衡会极大地影响减肥。Conditions such as PCOS for example can cause insulin resistance which can cause weight gain,making it harder for you to lose weight.It's also common for females to be estrogen dominate (especially when taking the OCP).Absorbing environmental estrogens is another factor to consider which can lead to estrogen dominance.Environmental estrogens are known as xenoestrogens,这些是在塑料中发现的合成化学物质，fertilizers,detergents and cosmetics.据信，这些异种雌激素可以模拟我们的身体自然雌激素。Excess estrogen can result in weight gain in both men and women.
What I recommend:Ditch the plastic drink bottles and lunch containers and opt for glass or stainless steel instead.
5) You're not getting enough sleep
睡眠不足，or poor quality sleep may be hindering your weight loss goals.Sleep deprivation can slow down your metabolism and affects the hunger hormones leptin and ghrelin.Leptin is what tells your brain to stop eating,whereas ghrelin stimulates hunger and is produced in the stomach.Some research suggests that poor quality or inadequate sleep is associated with low levels of leptin and high levels of ghrelin,often resulting in weight gain.
What I recommend:Get a solid 8 hours of sleep each night.创造一个健康的睡眠习惯。I've written about ways to improve your sleep which you can check out here -10 Tips For A Great Nights Sleep.
6) You're over-exercising
I can vouch for this one personally!我是一个吸食hiit和释放内啡肽的人，but for some people (like myself) too much of a good thing just isn't right.对我个人来说，它会扰乱我的荷尔蒙，增加我的压力反应。Exercising is still important for weight loss but if you are a busy,stressed or an anxious person,and you're not getting adequate sleep your body's stress response will be increased,那么，如果你强调锻炼（即do a HIIT session) regularly your body is going to pump out even more cortisol (hello fat storage) preventing you from losing weight.
What I recommend:Try limiting HIIT to 1-2 days a week and for no longer than 15-20 minutes.On other days do restorative practices such as yoga,pilates,walking,或者举重（这不会让你感到呼吸困难）。
