1. Stress and Cortisol

Check out these 5 non-calorie reasons why you may be struggling.

High levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, leads to weight gain, especially in the face and abdomen. Your adrenals produce cortisol, so nourishing them properly is important.

 To Solve:

  • We need to help restore balance to the body, calm your nervous system, provide brain clarity, and brings your body from chaos to rhythm
  • Adrenal Complex – a combination of herbs used to support your adrenals
  • Move your body 30 minutes per day
  • Sleep 7-9 hours per night

2. Lack of Sleep and Poor Quality Sleep

People who sleep less than 7 or more than 9 hours per night tend to struggle with their weight. Sleep deprivation causes you to have less leptin (feeling full hormone) and more ghrelin (hunger hormone). When these are out of balance, it’s easy to overeat. (And we didn’t even mention sleep apnea, night tremors and menopause!)

 To Solve:

  • We need improve sleep quality be resetting metabolic sleep pathways
  • Natural Melatonin – be wary of many as this a naturally occurring hormone in your body – seek the correct amount and type.
  • Go to bed earlier – shoot for 9-10pm
  • Keep your room dark
  • Keep your bedtime and wake up time consistent

3. Lack of Muscle Mass

Muscle burns more calories than fat, so it’s crucial to be eating enough protein to build muscle. This is especially true as we age. Additionally taking in more protein helps keep you fuller longer.

 To Solve:

  • We need to reset your daytime metabolism to what it was meant to be
  • Eat enough protein – I shoot for 90-120 grams per day
  • SP Shakes – one scoop contains 20 grams of protein
  • Incorporate weights into your workouts

4. Sitting too much

Too many people spend too much time sitting. Sitting is linked to multiple issues, from obesity to high blood pressure. Chairs were one of the worst things ever invented.

 To Solve:

  • Get up and stretch every hour
  • Get a standing workstation
  • Use a yoga ball instead of a chair
  • Jumping jacks during commercials

5. Inflammation

Inflammation is where all disease starts, but it’s also a common culprit for weight gain. Inflammation and weight gain can lead to insulin resistance, and when blood sugar is dysregulated, fat accumulates.

 To Solve:

  • Avoid processed foods, gluten, foods dyes, soy, preservatives, sugar, corn, and potentially dairy
  • Avoid alcohol
  • ChiroThin – Weight-loss program targeting inflammation
  • Olprima EPA|DHA – Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Turmeric Forte – contains turmeric and reduces inflammation
