Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss difficult for me?


Millions of men and women struggle to attain sustainable weight loss. While diet and exercise play a role, there are many other reasons weight loss can prove challenging. The most common reasons people can’t lose weight include:


Metabolism is how your body processes food and turns it into energy. People with slower metabolisms may burn calories at a lower rate, making it harder to create the necessary calorie deficit for weight loss.


Genetic factors contribute to variations in body composition, fat storage, and how your body responds to diet and exercise. You may have a genetic predisposition to retain weight, making it more difficult to shed excess pounds.

Hormonal imbalances

Hormones are chemicals that help regulate metabolism and fat storage. Imbalances, such as those related to thyroid function or insulin resistance, can hinder weight loss efforts by affecting how your body processes and stores energy.

Unhealthy eating patterns and lifestyle

Emotional eating, overconsumption of processed foods, and irregular eating habits contribute to eating too many calories.

Lack of physical activity

Regular exercise not only burns calories but also helps improve metabolism and supports overall health.
