In this interview our discussion is about why it is harder to lose weight once over the age of 40. This is true for many people whether they have had a long history of gaining and losing weight over the years or this most recent weight gain is new for them.
Having over 15 years experience in the weight loss field and as well having had my own challenges after I turned 50 I have worked with hundreds of people and have heard all their stories regarding why they cannot seem to lose their weight including not being able to keep it off when they have lost it. Over the years I have noticed definite patterns with these obstacles and I have been able to categorize the obstacles into 3 main buckets.
Weight loss is not just a body experience, it is a mind and body experience. In this interview I elaborate on these 3 buckets, what contributes to them and explain how changes in the body with age can contribute to the obstacles but also how mindset and lifestyle also play a major role in making weight loss more difficult after age 40.
In our second interview we discuss the 5 Key Principles to achieving successful and sustainable weight loss and why it is so difficult to maintain weight after completing a weight loss plan.
This is the Holy Grail of weight loss. The statistics show that after 2 years there is a 50% weight gain and at the 5 year mark 80% have gained weight. This demonstrates how challenging it can be to keep the weight off.
The good news is that it is possible to keep the weight off but in order to do that there are 5 key principles that a person needs to make sure they incorporate into their weight loss plan so they can transition into weight maintenance successfully.
Many people focus just on the end result of hitting their goal weight instead of asking themselves what will happen after they lose the weight.
Jamie and I discuss each of these principles and I explain the significance of each of them and how they impact successful long term weight maintenance
Our final interview, we discuss why many people who are over 40 years of age find that they cannot seem to lose weight when they follow the weight loss protocol of reducing calories by eating less and increasing caloric burn by exercise.
In fact there is a reason why this method does not work for many people and we also discuss another method that can work instead that is healthy, natural and effective.
In the interview I outline what can cause this internal disruption resulting in a stubborn belly that is just not responding to one's best efforts.
What is this internal disruption? What can contribute to this? and what can somebody do about this if they suspect this is why they are struggling with weight loss?
