048: How Your Body Blocks Weight Loss with Dawn Cuckow

Weight loss can be super frustrating sometimes. You feel like you’re doing everything right, and yet the weight still doesn’t come off. It’s easy to blame yourself, but the truth is it’s not your fault. There are good biological reasons why this might be happening. 

When your body’s biochemical processes are out of balance, it can trigger cravings and the desire to overeat, and it can also trigger your body to store more energy as fat. So it’s not a matter of willpower when you give in to a sugary treat – it’s your biochemistry. 

Joining me on the podcast this week is Dawn Cuckow, a nutritional therapist. Together, we discuss the various ways your body might be blocking your weight loss. Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • How your body gets so out of balance
  • Why food packaging and your physical environment matters
  • The role of specific nutrients, including omega-6 fatty acids
  • How your microbiome contributes to your weight loss
  • Tips for managing sugar cravings and nighttime eating
