One of the most important factors when it comes to weight management is that your body needs to be healthy enough to not need that extra fat to protect it! Sounds crazy, but the fat in your body is there for a reason. It protects our organs, regulates our hormones, and so much more. So if you have any health challenges, there is often extra fat on your body to protect it from those challenges causing more serious problems. That means, until your body is confident enough that it is going to survive without that extra fat, losing weight is almost impossible!
