“I want to lose weight but I’ve tried everything and my body just doesn’t respond.”

You have not tried everything.

You likely never learned to budget your intake. If you did budget your intake, you were eating more than you were recording.

Hormones, age, activity level, exercise (or lack thereof), those can play in to rate of progress, but 100% of everyone CAN and WILL lose weight if they land themselves in a calorie deficit daily.

If you learn to track your intake, and track it properly, the power your diet holds trumps any outside factor that you perceive to negatively impact your ability to lose weight.

The only people who can’t lose weight in a caloric deficit….are not in a caloric deficit.

If your dog is overweight and you bring it to the vet for its yearly checkup, the vet doesn’t ask you to put the dog on a keto diet, nor do they ask you to feed the dog only organic food, or no carbs, or no food after 6pm. Your vet instructs you to walk the dog an extra time or two a day, and reduce portion sizes of meals by 1/4 or 1/2. This is how one creates a caloric deficit. A little more calorie burn, a little less calorie intake, turning both levers at once ensures neither lever has to do 100% of the work.

Learn to track your intake, do it properly (most of us can’t, hence getting a coach in your corner to teach you and guide you), and amaze yourself.
