PostI’m Still Not Getting Results

First up be really honest with yourself. Consider repeating your food diary if you’ve stopped tracking in detail. It can be easy for two treats a week had turned into ‘one small thing’ everyday and this can stall results.

Secondly, be patient. Change takes time. However, if it’s been 4-5 weeks with no progress there are 7 simple steps to go through in order to work out exactly what suits your body and to get results. Don’t be tempted to skip to the end or rush this. As frustrating as it can be to find out once you do you know YOUR exact needs.

1. Is your sleep, stress, hunger, energy and cravings balanced? If not this is the place to start before you change anything else. How to Modify helps you know how to address this.

6. Try increasing your carbohydrates by 5-10 bites (this may sound counterintuitive, but some people actually require more to lose weight).

This is a practice and may take weeks of tweaking until you find what your body likes, but once you do, it’s simple and repeatable and unlike one size fits all plans it’s exactly what your body needs and is sustainable. Bonus!

If you still really struggle then it is also worth considering if you may have an issue with hormones, food sensitivities or any medication you are on. The video from Jade in Your Experts may be of interest to you.

Psychologists have also found a link between childhood trauma and an inability to lose weight. If you feel this may be you then it may be with getting some professional support in dealing with this.
