How to Help a Friend Lose Weight

If a family member or friend is finding it having hard time when they try to loose weight, it may be because of one or more of these possible issues.

1. Cutting Calories

The most common mistake people make with weight loss is cutting calories. You want to reduce the frequency of meals, but do not lower your calories. Calorie reductions can cause:

• Slow metabolism

• Constant hunger

• Nutrient deficiencies.

2. Low Fat

You need healthy fats in your diet. Many people try to cut back on fats like butter and animal fat, but this is a mistake. Low-fat protein will cause your insulin to spike. The more their food choices trigger insulin, the less weight they’re going to lose. Keep in mind that fat has the least effect on insulin.

3. High Carbs

In the presence of too much insulin, you cannot lose fat. Insulin is a fat-storing hormone. If you are eating carbs, you don’t be able to lose weight, you will have frequent cravings, and you will likely gain even more weight. Cut out the carbs by going on a healthy keto diet.

Here is a handy tool for counting carbs, please see my Blog Post, CARB MANAGER is the Most Comprehensive and Easiest-to-use Net and Total Carb Counter

4. Monitoring Steps + Drinking Lots of Water

This happens a lot with people who try to lose weight. They count steps, hit the treadmill or stationary bike, and drink lots of water, but they still don’t see significant results. Exercise only makes up about 15% of weight loss results. Put more energy into your diet, and you will see far more results.

5. Weighing Daily

If you get healthy you will lose weight – don’t lose weight to get healthy. The main thing you can do to get healthy is to work on fixing insulin resistance with healthy keto and intermittent fasting. This can take time, so be patient.

To learn more about insulin please read my Blog, High Insulin Causes Insulin Resistance.  Here is the link

6. Six Small Meals Per Day

Every time you eat, you trigger insulin. If you consume 6 small meals every day, you are spiking your insulin 6 times. This makes weight loss very difficult. Instead, do intermittent fasting. This will help fight off cravings, fix insulin resistance, and burn fat.

These points will give them the basics to help them lose weight.
