Weight Loss Resistance: Here’s How Hormones Impact Weight Loss
You’re doing everything correctly: you count calories, reduce your sugar intake, cut out most processed foods, and hit the gym four times every week. Yet despite your most focused effort, those last 10 pounds refuse to vacate.
Weight loss resistance differs from plateauing. Almost everyone hits a roadblock at some point on their weight-loss journey, but eventually, they overcome that plateau and continue losing weight. But when you stay consistently on course and yet weeks — even months — go by without the scales budging, that’s weight loss resistance.
“Your body is a chemistry lab, not a bank account, and the calories-in-calories-out model is woefully outdated because it fails to account for the numerous variables that can affect fat loss,” says JJ Virgin, CNS, who describes weight loss resistance as not losing one to three pounds of fat every week when you’re following a strict protocol.
Many things contribute to weight loss resistance, including pharmaceutical and over-the-counter medications, food allergies or sensitivities, thyroid or adrenal imbalances, and genetics.

The latest statistics show that more than 2 in 3 American adults are overweight or obese.(1) Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers, many of which are preventable.(2) Even modest weight loss, such as 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight, can improve your self-esteem as well as various health factors including blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugar.(3)
Incorporating these strategies can help boost weight loss and improve body composition to better overall health.
