Why 95% All Weight Loss Programs Fail?


Most weight loss plans concentrate on the reduction of weight by dietary restrictions, meal supplementation or some other form of unsustainable change. Most diets today imply a “restriction” of one kind or another. The failure of this approach is that it does not address the fundamental truth – that weight gain is a symptom of an imbalance, not the cause of it. The usual approach is to focus on the symptom that continues to reappear because the fundamental causes have not been addressed and eliminated.

There are many different variables that contribute to each individual imbalance that can result in weight gain. They usually include the following factors:

Hormone Imbalance - Estrogen Dominance

High Cortisol - Hormone of Stress

Insulin Resistance

Hypothyroid - or Other Endocrine Disorders

Low Brain Chemicals - GABA, Serotonin, Dopamine

Menopause - Drop-Off of All Hormones

Low Testosterone

So, why do most weight loss programs fail?


Put simply, weight gain is a symptom of an imbalance in your general condition, not the cause of it. So, if you only focus on the symptom, weight gain or fluctuation will continue to occur until the reason(s) for weight gain are recognized and addressed.

Further, most diet plans and programs deliver a “one size fits all” approach, and are usually based on some type of diet restriction. This is counter-productive and obviously unsustainable in the long run. 


For a long-term weight loss program to succeed it has to be based on a personalized approach that is specific to your condition.  It has to be based on sound understanding of your medical history that includes your metabolic and hormone profiling. And in addition, your emotional needs have to be supported and resolved.  This is a whole life approach to a lasting lifestyle change that will lead to long-term weight management and better health.
