I am new to this platform and very excited to engage in conversations. I am a certified nutritionist and curious about the biggest issues with weight loss you might have.
So if you have a question, please just drop it in the comments.
Today I would like to write a post about how to Ease up on yourself, and move from that uncomfortable stalled condition towards desired weight.
If you are the one who follows all the nutrition and exercise recommendations but feel stuck, there might be something else responsible for you not reaching desired results.
1. You might have a medical condition. In this case a health check up might provide with clarity on this.
2. Your nutrition plan does not provide you with balanced meal plan. It is useful to investigate who is the author of your meal plan and how reliable it is.
3. You are stressed out. This is a big one! Practically, this is a common issue that mostly no diet plans take into consideration.
What do I mean by being stressed out? Practically it is the state where you feel any negative emotion on a regular basis. It might be anything from boredom to depression. All of these negative emotions indicate the imbalance in your body that directly affects your hormonal imbalance.
Especially a long-term stress means that you have an increased amount of stress hormone in your body. This means that your body is working against you and your weight loss, when you are trying to shed body fat, it is set to do anything it takes to store it. It stimulates your appetite and craving for sugary and fatty food. There is a simple explanation to why this happens. When you are stressed, you body prepares to feel or fight and thus gather resources instead of "spending" them.
S loosing body weight comes to your body as a counter-intuitive action and no your body is not going to do it willingly.
So the solutions is to reduce the state of stress! A While you cannot control your surrounding environment that causes stress, you can teach yourself to distress and see events around you in a less stressful way.
Meditation and positive thinking are two of many techniques I recommend.
Just try it! Anytime you feel stalled with your progress, instead of adding to the general stressful state by beating up on yourself, decide to practice one of the distressing techniques available out there.
Have a wonderful day and remember weight loss can be and is easy!
