If you find yourself trying various diets only to regain the weight (and then some) the moment you veer from the plan, you aren’t alone. Many people experience the ups and downs of repeated attempts to lose weight, and it’s not your fault.
There’s a reason that your diet isn’t working, and it’s not a lack of willpower—it’s stress. Stress hormones play a tremendous role in the female metabolism and can ruin even the most meticulous diet and exercise plan.
Simply put, when you’re stressed out, your body wants to hold onto the weight even if you’re doing everything right. In order to lose the weight and keep it off, first, you’ve got to bring down your stress levels and boost your metabolism. Otherwise, diet and exercise can backfire, causing your body to desperately hold onto the pounds you’re trying to lose.
Rest Based Living is a holistic approach to diet and weight loss that minimizes your stress, boosts your metabolism, and improves your overall health without requiring drastic changes to your diet.
It doesn’t matter your age, or your current weight—if you’re willing to follow the plan and dedicate yourself to making some simple lifestyle changes, you will see improvement.
