If you experience any of the following, you may be experiencing Weight Loss Resistance:
Triple digit weight-loss update: We have a 100 lb reduction in one client after 4 months (16 weeks) verified by an integrated scale and witness.
This is not a “common” case , not this pace nor in the way it has been achieved, and comes up short explaining how as well.
Speed: If our approach was caloric based this person would be at the 25-32 lb. loss at this point. The man eats daily, with no daily calorie restriction, actually eating more fat than before some days, and hasn’t moved into any traditional fasting yet or exercise.
Method: He is living with his sister, who is a client in my program, and following her lead. So, not even working with me technically. Only reason I knew he was losing like this is he registered as a second user on her smart scale she uses for the program.
How? Honestly, this is not the first time we have seen numbers that didn’t equate in the traditional weight caloric model. I too at times scratch my head. I believe we are starting to observe undefined metabolic mechanisms and need to think outside the box to understand how this is happening.
What I can say, it’s not about CALORIES! A 6.5 lbs a week weight reduction would be a deficit of 22,750 calories a week or 3,250 a day, and that just didn’t happen.
This is very exciting, and I just had to share. It’s important to note that this gentleman was about 100 lbs overweight at the start.
And no, there is no secret pill, powder, product or potion. My programs are not product or supplement based nor need any special testing or labs, although when people have or want them I do advise on, and review applicable tests.
I use strategic lifestyle protocols introduced in a specific sequence in the areas of:
Nutrition both “what to eat” and “when to eat”
Metabolic exercise progression
Stress Resilience practices
Functional Fasting on a specific rotation
This has been developed over years of use in different models based on data from thousands in the population health, group, and 1 on 1 programs.
When I was attempting to enroll large corporations into using this type of program I had to come very well prepared and go before these companies medical review boards and wellness committees filled with educated MDs, Phd’s, weight loss experts and health professionals who were there to vet my “new approach” to their old problems.
This lead to thousands of hours over the years doing research, attending medical seminars in diabetes, weight loss, and wellness and establishing our own 3rd party research model and analysis.
I learned a lot about what people liked or didn’t about programs, what strategies they actually incorporated short and long term, why certain people didn’t finish or succeed, and at what point and who were the most likely to drop out, when, and why.
That info has proven invaluable. Knowing what makes days 27 and 61 crucial for a large percentage of people, what special variables come with different medications, or what particular group needs to see FIRST or they won’t start, all has enabled me to provide what I call a “soft catch” that supports people through these vital moments to keep them moving forward and progressing through the program.
There is a lot to this concept of lifestyle and weight loss. Keep an open mind and always remember there are other options and different ways to approach everything!
We can do better!
