In this video, I want to share with you a story about a woman who just felt like she could not lose weight no matter what. She was putting hard work into keto (ketogenic diet) and not seeing the results she wanted. She was frustrated and upset. Maybe you’ve felt the same way about weight loss. What do you do about it? I’m going to give you a few actionable steps that will help you learn how to lose weight.
Something to realize is that some people have a certain set point. Some people might call this a weight loss plateau or a fat loss plateau. For example, this woman wasn’t gaining weight, but she can’t lose weight either. She was just stuck at a certain weight she couldn’t get below.
But, what’s behind a set point? It’s very severe insulin resistance. The more insulin you have, the more stubborn your set point will be, and the more you’ll be wondering how to lose fat. With this situation, you can exercise like crazy and still not experience weight loss.
If you have insulin resistance, a slow metabolism, or a set point you need to be intermittent fasting for at least 18 hours to start fixing insulin resistance and seeing a change.
This particular woman also had severe menstrual cycle problems after two weeks into keto. This type of issue usually comes from dairy. If you consume dairy, it needs to be quality organic grass-fed dairy.
Action steps that will help if you’re not losing weight on keto:
• Be cautious of who you get advice from
• Hyper focus on fixing insulin resistance
• Handle other health problems
• Choose non-dairy keto bombs
To determine if you have insulin resistance, you can have a test done called HOMA-IR. This will tell you how bad your insulin resistance is, and give you the right estimation of effort to solve this problem.
The one factor to know if you’re on the right track or not:
• Is your hunger going away? If your hunger is going away, that means your insulin resistance is improving.
Once you switch from sugar fuel to fat fuel—your hunger will go away, you’ll have energy, and you’ll experience more weight loss.
