What are the reasons you’re not losing weight with exercise even when you’re trying? It varies from woman to woman, but there are common denominators for midlife women. Explore these if you can’t get that needle to move. And I’ll share another podcast you might love too. Flipping 50 Fitness Specialist This episode is brought to you by the Flipping 50 Fitness Specialist. If you love training, coaching, and working with women in midlife – especially if you are one, this is your stop. #1 Hidden Food Sensitivities A food allergy is obvious. A food intolerance is mysterious. It’s the result of the inability to digest or absorb a food completely. It happens later in life and often can happen when hormone changes occur that also affect the gut. That is, once perimenopause begins it’s a perfect storm. If you’ve tried core work and cardio and strength training and still can’t get rid of the pregnant belly, you may need to redefine “healthy food.” Gas, bloating, and diarrhea, fatigue and inability to lose weight are all just clues. They can be related to reduced production of enzymes needed to break down food that occurs with age. Doing any of these? Eating yogurt, cheese and cottage cheese? You may be lactase deficient and unable to breakdown lactose. Eating lots of beans, bran, fruit or sugar alcohols? You may lack the enzymes to break down the volume of carbohydrates. Vegetarians or vegans are most susceptible. Histamines in foods – healthy foods you may be eating on purpose – could actually be causing you problems. Spinach, tomatoes, and fermented foods contain foods that breakdown into histamines. Gluten sensitivity – a lot of women who never test positive for Celiac disease (true allergy) experience fewer gut issues and fatigue when they remove gluten or significantly reduce it. The same goes for wheat. How? Reduce your exposure to trigger foods. Support your system with enzymes. Foods you eat every day are the ones you’re most likely to become sensitive to and specific foods are greater triggers than others. A simple Food Flip can help reduce the stress on your liver and support a metabolism boost, while reducing your exposure to unknown sources of inflammation. I offer one a few times a year, link in the show to learn more. #2 Nutritient Deficiency It’s been said many times. The U.S. is the most overfed and undernourished country in the world. If you’re a woman used to cutting back and eating iceberg (or spinach for that matter) far too often you may be missing micronutrients you need. It’s nearly impossible to eat a balanced diet that contains even the RDAs, which doctors, and RDs alike now recognize as too low for anyone to thrive in 2021. Take a good look at your diet and the diversity of the foods you eat. Consider supplementing with an intelligent high quality multivitamin at the least. (A one-a-day vitamin is probably not your best choice today). The best way to know what your body needs is a micronutrient test. Then you’re not blindly supplementing. Today you can use your insurance through your doctor or order your own direct lab. Results tell you exactly what effect your diet and supplements are having on you. #3 Lack of Sleep Hormones are directly related to your ability to store or burn fat and to counter that with gaining or at the least maintaining lean muscle. You nurture those specific hormones when you sleep. Of all the reasons you’re not losing weight sleep is the most passive to fix. The number one thing you can do to improve weight loss results without changing anything else is get the right quantity and quality of sleep for you. Instead of choosing an arbitrary quota, test your sleep needs. Go to bed when you’re tired. Keep the bedroom cool, dark, and quiet, and wake naturally. Conduct that experiment 3-5 times and compare the hours you slept to what you regularly get. Close that gap. No amount of dieting or exercise will benefit your muscles or metabolism without sleep.
