In this video, we’re going to talk about what to do when cutting your carbs doesn’t help you lose weight.

When you hit a plateau, I typically say you need to cut your carbs down and eat less frequently. But what do you do if that doesn’t work?

There are two situations that may cause you to stop losing weight even when you’re fasting and lowering your carbs. The first situation is when you’re not getting enough sleep, and the second is when you’re stressed out.

Not getting the right amount of quality sleep can stop weight loss because of a hormone called melatonin. Sleep produces melatonin, and melatonin inhibits insulin. So if you’re not getting enough sleep, you won’t have enough melatonin to keep your insulin levels under control.

High insulin causes your body to store sugar as fat. This is obviously not good for losing weight.

Exposure to blue light before bed and late-night snacking can lead to poor sleep.

Stress affects weight loss because of the hormone cortisol. Cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, releases glucose as a source of quick energy. In turn, this releases sugar into the body and causes high insulin.
