Why Healthy People Struggle to Lose Weight

Why Healthy People Struggle to Lose Weight

Are you incredibly healthy but just can't seem to lose weight? Read on to learn a few common reasons why you can't seem to shave off those extra pounds.

5 reasons why you’re not losing weight

  1. You snack on healthy food whenever and wherever it's presented. 

    You could be thinking less about portion control because you believe the food you’re eating is always healthy.

  2. You overlook the fact that good fats still need to be consumed in moderation. 

    You eat a whole avocado, 200g of salmon, a bag of caramelised pecans and half a tub of coconut yoghurt without really thinking you’re going over the recommended portions.

  3. You don’t technically consider vegan or gluten-free options an indulgence because they’re labelled as ‘healthy’. 

    Every time you take a coffee break, you order a vegan Spelt croissant or a gluten-free brownie to go with your espresso cup.

  4. You love snacking throughout the day on fruit or smoothie bowls. 

    You consider natural sugar healthy in any capacity at any time of day but forget how energy-dense it can be. Furthermore, you completely forget its impact on your blood sugar.

  5. You can't shy away from a healthy after-dinner treat. 

    Dinner satisfies you but you're a foodie and enjoy a few evening indulgences like a glass of organic wine or a few rows of good-quality chocolate.

Please note that these habits are not necessarily a concern for the average person. I bring them to attention ONLY for those who are struggling to achieve their weight loss goals despite feeling as though they're very healthy with their food choices. 

Keeping your portions healthy

The secret to losing weight doesn't simply depend on choosing healthy foods; it's also about portion control. The following guide may be useful to keep in mind when consuming meals throughout the day.

Life changing

These tablets have been a game changer for me. I started taking 4 a day, 2 in the morning and 2 at night, then after a couple of weeks and a huge improvement in how I felt, I cut back to 2 a day. I’ve never felt better. No more mood swings, I can now think clearly again, and in general feeling like my old self again. The best investment you could make for yourself xxx


Im impressed at the assement & found it really helpful in a world of confusing information. Also impressed at the follow up support. Thank you. Just placed my 1st order & looking forward to it arriving so l can get started.

Ill never miss a day taking HH

When I was late ordering by next batch of HH, my body responded within a week with pain, bloating and general unease. Never again will I not order in advance. MM

Great products

I would recommend the products to any woman who would like to balance her hormones . The y help with a general feeling of well being and increased energy levels .

Thank you HH

I’ve been taking HH for over 2 years now. It has allowed me to stop taking the medication I was on to control my severe PMS symptoms and it has made my periods so much more manageable. I recommend this product to anyone that will listen. Thank you HH💕
