Why You Can’t Lose Weight – The Rest Of It!

 

can’t lose weight? I’ve been there!

"Why You Can't Lose Weight"Trust me, I know what it’s like to feel like you’re banging your head against the wall when it comes to losing in shape. There have been 2 key times in my life when I’ve seriously been following the rules and yet still haven’t been able to shed the extra layers, and I tell you – it made me want to SCREAM!

The first was when I was in my mid-twenties and gained about 8kg over 2-3 years while working in Personal Training management.

The second time was after giving birth … I’m talking 6 months after and still no change.

In both cases I was frantically, desperately and consistently following the rules, and yet still nothing budged. If anything, I was slowly getting bigger!

i was having a weight loss meltdown!

Here’s the thing. If you’re following the rules and still nothing is changing, then you’re simply not following the right rules for your body. There’s always a reason.

In my case it came down to a combination of things:

  • I thought I knew the rules (in my mid-twenties), but I didn’t
  • The rules had changed (after pregnancy)
  • I was so determinedly focused that all I thought about was why couldn’t get lean, both the mindset and the stress of which were definitely stopping me from doing so (in both cases!)

when it comes to why you can’t lose weight, do you know the rules?

Last week we spoke about 3 of the key reasons for not losing weight, despite doing ‘everything right’. They were:

  • Your food quality
  • Your food quantity
  • A possible gluten intolerance

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s definitely several other ‘blocking factors’ that could be sabotaging your best efforts, and following are some of the likelier offenders:

  • A possible lactose intolerance
  • Other food intolerances
  • Your digestive health
  • Underlying levels of toxicity
  • Your mindset

Let’s talk about a couple more of those …

reason you can’t lose weight #4: lactose

Lactose intolerance often goes hand in hand with gluten intolerance.

This has to do with digestion – typically if you’re eating both, and intolerant to one, you will create small holes in the lining of your digestive system. This is called ‘leaky gut syndrome’ and puts you at greater risk of developing food intolerance.

You can test how you fare without dairy simply by eliminating it for 2 weeks, just as we discussed last week in the gluten section. Of course these sort of manual elimination tests are quite crude compared to a lab test, but they’re definitely a good start.

An interesting consideration with lactose intolerance is that many sufferers find they can happily enjoy raw milk, raw cream and so on. My studies lead me to believe that the ever-increasing incidence of lactose intolerance is more closely related to quality and processing than actual inability to process dairy.

reason you can’t lose weight #5: other food intolerences

Gluten, dairy, and other obvious offenders such as starch-based foods in general are not the only foods you can be intolerant to, and they’re definitely not the only foods that could be inhibiting you from losing fat.

In fact, recently a colleague of mine in Finland published her lab food intolerance results on Facebook and it turned out she was intolerant to broccoli! Similarly a clients’ recent results showed that almonds, asparagus, spinach, pineapple and banana were all big no-no’s for her.

I find this sort of thing absolutely fascinating – the concept that even though you might be eating super ‘clean’ you could be unknowingly irritating and inflaming your body through supposedly healthy foods.

I’m not bringing this up to scare you, because I do realise your reaction might be ‘great, another thing to stress about’.

If you haven’t yet built a foundation of good nutrition and training, then by all means you may choose to hold off on worrying about the finer details such as food intolerance. But if you really do feel like you’re putting a great effort in and you just don’t have the results to show for it then this may be something worth investigating.

reason you can’t lose weight #6: digestive health

You’ve heard the expression ‘you are what you eat’, yes?

Well the truth is that you are not what you eat so much as you are what you eat, digest and assimilate.

If you regularly or even sporadically experience bloating, stomach cramps, inconsistent elimination, diarrhea, constipation, or if you just can’t lose weight no matter what you do then digestive health is crucial to investigate.

Other major red flags in this area are if you’ve experienced severe food poisoning in your life, if you’ve taken much medication over the years or been on the Pill for years, or if you’ve ever had general anaesthesia.

As far as what to do about it – remember that digestion begins in your mouth with the effect of saliva mixing with your food. This is one reason why it’s smart to think back to what you were told as a kid, and ‘chew each mouthful 30 times’. Another way to put it is ‘eat your water and drink your food’.

There are numerous supplements which can help to improve your digestion, but I would suggest looking first to lifestyle.

Eating slowly; taking time to focus on your food, and avoiding processed foods are all key. So too are drinking adequate water and consuming enough fiber. You can get most of your fiber from your green vegetables, but if you are looking to detoxify stored body fat you may also like to supplement with fiber (search Primal Fiber). It’s been said to be the world’s number one fat loss supplement!

toxicity and the mindset of fat loss

Toxicity and a ‘mindset of lean’ are possibly my ‘favourite’ areas when it comes to stubborn fat loss. Favourite in a love-hate kind of way. Next week I’m going to explain exactly what I mean, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, start thinking more about which foods sit well with you and which ones seem to be trouble-makers. Who knows? I just might be onto something 😉

Life is Now. Press Play.

PS: Want to know how I got over my stubborn points? Of course it was a combo of things, but in large part it was about constantly putting myself out there and learning/trying new things. I knew that if I just kept on keeping on, I would get there in the end. I did it, and you can too 🙂

PPS: I don’t have to tell you that support in meeting your goals is CRUCIAL! If (like me!) you love the idea of getting bite-sized motivation and nutrition tools every day, of having VIP access to daily workouts for fat loss and body sculpting, of a private forum and unlimited support from me then you do NOT want to miss out on the launch sale for Woman Incredible’s VIP Platinum Mentoring and Gold Membership programs. It’s $1 for your first month, a HUGE discount after that if you continue, and the discount offer ends in just over a day. Register now for your trial $1 month! You may never have to worry about why you can’t lose weight again!

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
