A listener recently submitted the question, “How can I break a weight loss plateau?”
This may be a common thought because diet culture teaches us that we have direct control over our weight. And that we should be able to pick a goal weight and reach that weight with enough effort and willpower.
However, bodies don’t work like that! In this episode, Sam discusses what weight loss plateaus could truly indicate and how our bodies have a healthy set point weight range that they’re meant to hover around.
In this episode, Sam discusses:
- The myths around weight loss
- Statistics about intentional weight loss
- How BMI is not an indicator of health
- What to consider when thinking about nutrition
