Weight Loss

There are many factors that contribute to weight gain. Losing weight is not always as simple as eat less and exercise more. Patterns of fluctuating or gradual weight gain are signs that your body is out of balance.

Your body may be out of balance if you have:

  • Gradual weight gain

  • Trouble losing weight

  • Fluctuating weight

  • Sudden weight gain or weight loss

  • No weight loss with increased exercise, dietary changes or fasting 

Any of these signs are not normal and need to be addressed

Reasons people struggle to lose weight:


  • Hidden biological and biochemical reasons

  • Eating the wrong types of foods

  • Menopause or peri-menopause

  • Thyroid issues

  • Nervous system issues such as stress or depression

  • Medications

  • Poor blood glucose control

  • Lifestyle factors

  • The wrong balance of macronutrients for your body type

  • Stress & emotional eating

  • Genetics

These factors are addressed when doing a weight loss program with Deborah
