First Do No Harm! If ‘What’ you Eat? Or ‘How’ you Eat is Irritating and Inflaming your Gut – you have to Fix that Problem.
Secondly, make sure What You Eat - has you burning calories from FATS, not carbohydrates and proteins 23/7. Burning more calories doesn’t automatically mean you’re burning FATS! Weight gain, fatigue, cravings, irritability, hormonal imbalances, etcetera are all related to having your metabolism constantly burning carbs and proteins (lean muscle) for Energy instead of FATS.
Exercise is a Stress! Can your body handle the additional stress? If not, maybe that’s why you’ve hit a sticking point. Secondly, Don't burn the 'Wrong Fuel' when you train! You will either burn Sugars (carbs and proteins) for energy or FATS! AND it's the intensity of your workout that controls that. YES, it's OK to burn sugars when you train, but it's not OK to burn proteins (lean muscle) when you train, especially when you don't have enough CARBS available to get your through your whole workout. Common Mistake!
Stress can deplete your body and shift your Metabolism. Hinder Digestive function! Cause Low Testosterone and Low Progesterone problems. Make your Heart work harder, as well as, interfere with Sleep and Recovery. So, find out if you are over-working your adrenal glands – more importantly don’t further deplete your adrenal glands with needless forms of Dis-Stress! That could be what is holding back your progress.
