So let me give you another perspective on this issue.
Could it be that your weight is like a very good old friend making sure that you feel secure and protected?
Why would you like to lose this good old friend then, when you would lose security and protection at the same time?
Therefore diets cannot work and don’t work with lasting results.
You can see here that your emotions are the key driver. When we do not address underlying emotions or stress factors that contribute to holding on to the weight, it is impossible to lose weight.
Stress creates an overproduction of cortisol and an overproduction of cortisol prevents you from losing weight. So stress decreases your nutrient absorption.
People with weight issues normally do not feel what their body requires.
They feel out of control and do not love their body. They treat their body like everyone else treated them in childhood or repeat the eating behaviour that they have learned.
Whatever it was that made you lose your power over your body, it needs to be addressed. And it can be addressed!
