Are you a “chronic dieter”? Are you always looking for the latest diet? Did you notice that after each diet you always gain back the lost pounds and and a bit more? Are you looking for a permanent solution to end this struggle with weight loss?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are not alone. There are millions like you who have been yoyo dieting for a long time. It has been estimated that 98% of those who go on a weight loss diet, will gain this lost weight within five years.

It’s been already proven that diets don’t work and that’s how this dieting industry stays in business. As a registered holistic nutritionist and weight loss consultant, I see many clients who have tried different popular weight loss diets before. They usually lose weight on these diets, however the problem is once they stop the diet, they’ll gain all the weight back and even more.

The truth about popular weight loss diet companies

These weight loss companies offer  one size fits all conventional diets. They will do all they can to make you lose weight, however they will make you dependent on them. They usually won’t teach you how to eat to stay lean and fit. Some of these companies have their own products or have ready-made meals that you can purchase.

And although they promote their diets as healthy, that’s not always true. I had clients who came to me because they were worried that these diet meals had so many chemical ingredients and were heavily laden with sodium and preservatives.Overtime your health will suffer because they don’t have your health as their priority.

The biggest issue I see as a weight loss Oakville nutritionist with these weight loss diets is that they don’t work on the underlying cause of the problem. So you have to ask this question before starting another weight loss program: What is causing me to have this ongoing struggle with my weight? You might be able to answer this yourself. But in most cases it’s not so obvious so you’ll need to consult a weight loss health consultant to help you get to the hidden root cause of your problem.

Unless you get a clear answer to this question and work on it, nothing will work for you on the long run and your struggle will go forever.

Weight loss is much more than reducing your caloric intake or working out

These factors can sure matter, however there are so many underlying causes for your weight gain. These causes might vary from one person to another.

For some it might be that their genes are not working with them. Maybe they inherited a metabolic imprint that supports fat deposition because of defective hormone regulating genes such as “adiponectin” and “resistin” hormones. If you have little of the “adiponectin” hormone you won’t be able to lose weight easily.

If you weren’t lucky and inherited those defective genes, it doesn’t mean you are sentenced to stay overweight or obese. You just have to work harder to switch off your bad genes.

It is totally possible to switch off your bad genes with changes in your diet, lifestyle, environment and attitude. This has been already proven and is called the science of nutri-genomics.

You might also suffer from a slow metabolism that’s sabotaging your weight loss efforts. This can be caused by so many conditions such as nutritional deficiencies, thyroid problems, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, liver problems, etc.

As an Oakville nutritionist and weight loss consultant, I can assure you that unless you make sure your weight loss program is personalized to address the underlying causes of the problem, you will be on this diet roller coaster for good.
