Sometimes we see losing weight as an objectively simple thing, (more movement, less food) - but it has many more factors than it may seem. You could be doing all the right things and still be stuck at a standstill. ⁠
⁠
This is because we are unique and bio-individual, and the root cause can vary from person to person. Factors like stress, medications, hormones, poor sleep, thyroid issues and so much more can hold us back from feeling our best. ⁠

Jon Gabriel @thegabrielmethod reminds us that nutrition, weight, hormones, stress, and inflammation are more closely linked than we think.⁠
⁠
Hormones like insulin, leptin, ghrelin, and cortisol impact your weight by controlling hunger, inflammation, fat storage, and energy use. These are all influenced by the foods we eat, the stress we feel, and the lifestyle we live.  Mindset can be an extremely powerful tool.⁠

Inflammation and weight are closely linked, creating a challenging cycle for many. 😢⁠
⁠
Chronic inflammation from poor diet, stress, and excess fat disrupts hormones like leptin, leading to increased hunger and fat storage. A balanced diet, exercise, and stress management are key to breaking this cycle and maintaining a healthy weight. Eating anti-inflammatory foods can be a great first step. 🍓⁠

Ever wonder why weight loss can feel so tough? It’s all connected! Often, it’s not just about eating less and moving more—it’s a complex hormonal cascade.⁠
⁠
Here’s how it works: Leptin resistance increases hunger and leads to overeating. Insulin resistance promotes fat storage and increases the risk of disease. Chronic stress and inflammation not only make weight loss harder but also disrupt several other hormones.⁠
⁠
It might sound discouraging, but the good news is that these processes can be reversed! ⁠
