5 major roadblocks keeping you from losing weight for good

Slimming down is no easy feat. And if you do manage to drop a few pounds, trying to keep the weight off can be harder than losing it in the first place!

"So many people continue to struggle with weight loss even when they watch what they eat and exercise regularly," says Dr. Timothy Panah, PSc.D., the creator and founder of the "New You—Total Health Weight Loss" at Skinny Seattle. “I often hear them say that they can lose about six to seven pounds before it really slows down. Then, when they get discouraged and take their eye off the ball, boom, the weight comes right back, often with some additional uninvited pounds."

So, how can you become a lean, mean, fat-burning machine and stay that way? Dr. Panah says it's by identifying your "metabolic roadblocks." Your metabolism is the process by which your body breaks down food and turns it into energy. The faster your metabolism, the more calories your body burns on a daily basis. The slower your metabolism, the more calories that are left in your body as stored fat. If something is disrupting your metabolism, it can sabotage your efforts in the weight loss department.

"At Skinny Seattle we recognize that every individual has at least one metabolic roadblock that needs to be handled before they can enjoy sustainable weight loss," he says. Those are usually in one of five areas:

  1. Blood sugar
  2. Thyroid metabolism
  3. Adrenal imbalances
  4. Digestive issues
  5. Hormonal shifts

That's why pills, one-stop-shop weight loss programs, and cookie cutter diets rarely work long term. Sustainable weight loss requires a customized approach!

"No two people look alike, think alike, or have the same metabolism. So, why would they lose weight the same way? Most programs are one-size-fits-all," says Dr. Panah.

The underlying issues disrupting your metabolism need to be addressed before you begin a weight loss program. The experts at Skinny Seattle begin by determining what your "metabolic roadblocks" are and take an all-natural approach to improve your overall health and bring your body back into balance. When your body is functioning optimally at full speed, you'll notice the weight falls off naturally.

"Our program focuses on five key areas that result in some amazing changes," says Dr. Panah. "People not only lose weight, they have more energy, they sleep better, their appetite normalizes, their libido improves, and they no longer crave the foods that are bad for them. We help the body to achieve balanced blood sugar and hormones without medication and then reset the metabolism for sustainable results."

You can lose weight a lot of ways but keeping it off and feeling your best requires a different approach altogether. Dr. Panah says his clients consistently lose between 20 and 40 pounds in the first 60 days and keep the weight off. "In conjunction with their medical doctors, we have seen great success helping clients with diabetes, thyroid issues, high blood pressure, acid reflux, and high cholesterol," he says. "Many of our clients dramatically reduce or eliminate their need for medications in just 40 to 60 days."
