Eating Highly Processed Foods
Processed foods are typically high in sugar and salt. If your insulin levels are too high from too much sugar you will not lose weight. If you are retaining water from too much sodium that can have a big change when you step on the scale.
Reason #3 Why You Aren’t Losing Weight
When you are stressed, your cortisol levels increase. Your body is in fight or flight mode. In an effort to keep the body safe it will start storing fat just in case.
