Losing weight is hard! And there's a surprising reason why – many women have physiological imbalances in their bodies that prevent weight loss, no matter how hard they try. At Women's Health Network we call this weight loss resistance, and simply put, you must heal those physiological imbalances if you want to lose weight.

This profile will assess your body's resistance to weight loss, and create a personalized plan to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
