In this blog, we will take a hard look at why weight loss is so hard to achieve and why a C.H.E.K certified approach is the sustainable solution for you.
Why weight loss is hard?Stubborn fat can be very difficult to lose, and even harder to keep off. We have all been there, sticking to a strict diet for a few weeks only to notice no scale movement. It can feel disheartening to see all of your hard work not paying off. So why is weight loss so hard?
We now know it takes burning 3,500 calories to lose one pound of fat. This adds up quickly when your goal is to lose multiple kilograms. It takes time in a prolonged calorie deficit in order to be able to achieve goals like these. But, we all know this is easier said than done.So why is it so hard to stick to a calorie deficit?
Your body works against you.Your body has biological processes that work when your brain perceives a food shortage. Decreases in production of a hormone leptin, which is the hormone that tells your brain when you are full, means your brain cannot recognise hunger signals as effectively. Increases in the opposite hormone, ghrelin, which signals hunger and appetite, means your body starts to crave more food and cannot work out as effectively when it is full.
A rapid decrease in calories, as well as being in a long-term calorie deficit, both have impacts on your metabolism. Your metabolism is the mechanism by which your body breaks down the calories within food. When calories are decreased, your metabolism reacts by beginning to slow down. If the drop in calories is very rapid, like by 700 or more, your metabolism may slow down significantly in order to preserve energy. This is one of those pesky bio mechanisms that are in place for when there are food shortages, preserving what the brain deems to be precious energy.
We know that these processes are birthed from years ago in our primitive years. These survival mechanisms allowed us to survive periods of immense food shortages. However, we do not suffer through the same challenges in the modern era. Now, we often place ourselves in self-imposed deficits in order to cut weight, but your brain does not see it this way. This is why you need to be aware of these biological processes, and work with a qualified C.H.E.K professional in order to achieve your goals facing these challenges.
Weight loss isn’t quick.Unfortunately, any sustainable weight loss is not a quick fix. As stated before, drastic calorie deficits can wreak havoc on your body and ultimately cause your weight to plateau.
Fad diets and quick fixes that are marketed within the fitness industry may help you drop weight in the short-term, but the majority of this is just water weight. The loss of this is unsustainable, as the moment you return to maintenance calories your body will begin to stack the weight on again.
We know that weight loss is never quick, so we endeavour to provide you with a holistic solution that will allow you to enjoy as much food freedom and live freely whilst achieving the body of your dreams.
