Your Journey Starts Here!
This scenario is disheartening for many reasons, not least of which is how it makes you feel about yourself. Following a restrictive plan may produce some short-term weight loss but is likely not sustainable for the long-term and regain of the weight is almost inevitable. Additionally, most of what’s shown to help with weight loss in the research is research conducted on men or rats – not large cohorts of women from a diversity of ethnic and demographic backgrounds. And as much as we would wish, manipulating calories doesn’t address the root causes of weight gain or stubborn weight loss, nor does it teach you how to build new habits or look at what your hormones are doing. What it does do is perpetuate fat shaming and the guilt that women carry for carrying extra weight.
