Can’t Keep the Weight Off? Here’s Why

Weight loss can be a very difficult topic for men and women of all ages. There are many people who spend so much time and effort into working out and dieting, only to find that they simply can’t keep the weight off. If you find yourself struggling with weight loss in this way, there may be a couple simple explanations.

We know that trying to lose weight can be hard—and it can be even more difficult when you keep trying without success. This is why we are here to help with some insight on why you may not be keeping your weight off.

According to some research, this problem may all lie in your hormones.

You see, our bodies can struggle with weight loss and our bodies can have a hard time adjusting to a new figure after we lose weight. In some situations, the body may think this weight loss is a sign of a problem and can activate the body’s internal systems to restore this lost fat (because it thinks the body is in trouble).

Hormonal and metabolic systems are in charge of regulating body weight and according to researchers—the body can see weight loss as an issue with the hormone leptin. While you are working hard to lose weight and finally enjoy a smaller figure, your body sees that you are in trouble. So, no matter what it is you are doing to help keep that weight off, your body may be attempting to restore the body to its previous weight.

Leptin is a very important hormone when it comes to weight management. It is also the hormone that is commonly associated with obesity and regulating weight and appetite. An issue with the amount of leptin in your body may be what is to blame for that weight coming back time and time again.

The good news is, targeting leptin and looking to hormonal treatments to help keep all of the hormones in the body balanced, can help. This is why, if you are doing everything right and find that every time you lose weight—it just comes back, you need to come in for help. We can check your hormone levels and see if hormonal issues are to blame for your problem.

This can help you regain the balance you are looking for—so that your body will stop getting in the way of all of your hard work, and so you can actually keep off that weight you want to lose!
