Weight loss plateau

Have you hit a weight loss plateau? If you have, it may be because you are dieting.

Dieting foils your attempts to lose weight. When food intake is reduced, your metabolic  rate is lowered to stave off starvation. Then you hit a discouraging plateau. Exercise counteracts this fall in resting metabolic rate and assures the dieter continued weight loss.

When you follow a wholefoods plant based lifestyle combined with exercise and hypnosis you can counteract your body’s desire to conserve fat for survival. According to Dr. John McDougall, to achieve effective weight loss about 300 calories should be expended each time you exercise. This would translate into 40-60 minutes of low-intensity walking swimming or bicycling or 20 to 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous running.

With my Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis program, there is no dieting. It is all about lasting lifestyle change. If you are ready to lose weight and keep it off, call or email me now. Together, no matter where you may live, we can develop a hypnosis weight loss program for you.

The Reason Weight Loss Plateaus When You Diet

Michael Greger M.D. FACLM October 2nd, 2019: “Hunger is a biological drive. Asking someone to eat smaller portions is like asking someone to take fewer breaths. You can white-knuckle it for a bit, but eventually nature wins out. That’s why I wrote How Not to Diet. There are foods that can counter the slowing of our metabolism and suppress our appetite—ways of eating to counter the behavioral adaptation and even eat more food, yet still lose weight.

Due to the metabolic slowing and increased appetite that accompanies weight loss, sustained weight loss requires a persistent calorie deficit of 300 to 500 calories a day. This can be accomplished without reducing portion sizes, simply by lowering the calorie density of meals. This can result in the rare combination of weight loss with both an increase in quality and even quantity of food consumed.”
