The fact is that our bodies absolutely hates losing those extra layers of fat that it has meticulously hoarded over the years and that it still has in store for a proverbial rainy day. As much as you want to lose weight, your body will resist and do all it can to combat weight loss. We have been wired through the evolutionary process so that we have certain genes that stimulate storing extra calories as fat in order to increase the chances of survival. Have you noticed how difficult it is to lose extra weight after losing the first 5 or 10 kg and that is because the body adjusts various parameters so that less energy is used and it adapts to survival with fewer calories adapts by becoming energy efficient. This post will tell you how to get the body to burn more fat and what exactly to do when your body is fighting weight loss.
1. When it lowers metabolism and uses fewer calories: Metabolic compensation is a survival mechanism to which the body adapts when it has lost weight and also uses fewer calories than before during activity. In such a situation, the body tends to save fat, and even with significant calorie restriction, weight loss will slow down. To counteract the slow metabolism, there are several options, from drinking green tea to eating foods that boost your metabolism to doing cardio exercise. All of these would increase your metabolism and get you back on track. Here is also a list of 21 tricks to increase your metabolism.
2. When Fat Burning Hormones Fail: Weight loss can come to a halt when key hormones such as thyroid, cortisol, testosterone, estrogen, leptin, human growth hormone, ghrelin, and most importantly, insulin are out of whack. When these hormones fail, one can gain weight instead of losing extra weight.

3. When the level of the satiety hormone leptin drops: Leptin is the satiety hormone or fullness hormone that signals the brain that you are “full” and have enough to eat. Leptin and ghrelin (hunger hormone) usually work in unison and maintain an optimal balance. Ghrelin only increases when energy and leptin signals need to be replenished when there are enough calories and energy in the body. However, when leptin function is compromised, the body tends to accumulate calories without knowing when to stop eating. Leptin also urges your body to burn stored fat to generate heat. This hormone also plays an important role in regulating the thyroid, growth hormone and adrenal glands. When a person is leptin resistant, it becomes very difficult to lose weight because the body is always in a state of hunger and does not realize that it has enough energy in the system. Yo-yo diets, cortisol, and free radicals can all affect leptin resistance. Eat foods that are high in antioxidants to trigger the release of leptin. Foods like banana, pomegranate, pumpkin, kiwi, avocado, carrots, green leafy vegetables, garlic, mango, blueberries, kidney beans, apples, and turmeric are high in antioxidants that trigger the release of leptin hormone, which controls appetite.
4. When the body increases the urge to eat more food: As you start to lose weight, the levels of the hunger hormone “ghrelin” go up to signal the need for energy and calories, and this hormone would also signal you more frequently to eat Increase unnecessary cravings for sugary foods. To suppress ghrelin, increase protein and fiber intake, pre-load water before each meal, and most importantly, reduce stress, as this can trigger appetite and ghrelin production.
5. When it adapts to the exercise routine: If you have lost weight from exercise in the past and are still following the same routine, the body adapts to that routine and as a result you will see there is no significant weight loss. To counteract this, follow the exercise programs in the Rati Beauty app to successfully lose weight.
6. By causing insomnia: Less hours of sleep can destroy your hormones, lower the satiety hormone, increase stress and hunger hormone. A good night’s rest is necessary in order to optimize all fat burning hormones. Every body function is set up when you get enough sleep at night, at least 7 hours and less than all major body functions, which can lead to a litter, increasing hunger and stress hormones (ghrelin and cortisol, respectively). To get a good night’s sleep, avoid using devices before bed, listening to soothing music, or indulging in positive thinking. Here are some additional tips to help you overcome insomnia and sleep well at night.
7. When it increases food cravings: Food cravings are caused by an imbalance in ghrelin, leptin, and insulin hormones. High levels of stress, anxiety, and emotional dependence on food can also trigger food cravings. When there are extreme calorie restrictions, we also tend to have unwanted food cravings.

8. When You Feel Tired and Tired: When you have lowered your intake significantly, the body usually reacts by leaving you feeling tired and tired all the time, and with little energy to do regular tasks or exercise. Here’s how to combat fatigue and feel more energetic as the day progresses.
