Exploring Middle-Age Weight Loss Resistance-In Session With Marc David

Written By:


Diana, 57, has been trying for at least 16 years to lose about 40 pounds to no avail. Told that she has metabolic resistance, her latest functional medicine doctor has told her she may never be able to lose the weight.

Weight Loss Resistance Session

With several autoimmune conditions and having gone into early menopause, Diana is confused about what’s going on with her body and whether weight loss in the cards for her.

In her eating psychology coaching session with Marc, they explore some of the key underlying causes that may be behind her weight loss resistance, including hormonal imbalance, pre-diabetes, and possible heavy metal toxicity.

Key Insights:

  • Examining all potential underlying causes for metabolic resistance is key, and working with a naturopath or functional medicine practitioner is recommended.
  • The reason why low calorie diets can cause weight loss resistance
  • Learning to adapt to the body we have now when we’re living a healthy lifestyle and have excluded causal factors for weight loss resistance.
  • Identifying what we can do to have the best chances for a healthy life while not living in the mindset of “if I don’t lose weight, I will never be healthy.”
  • How gentle exercise can support a healthy weight and body, and the particular benefits of sweating and infrared saunas
