Do you cut calories and increase workout intensity in hopes of losing weight only to find that you can’t get the scale to move or you gain weight?

This is a common phenomenon and it’s due to your body being stuck in fight or flight mode.

So when you push the body harder and starve it you cause your body to switch into an advanced protective state of fight or flight called freeze mode. In freeze mode you become extremely lethargic and your metabolism slows down. The harder you push the body and continue to stress it out, the more you drive yourself into metabolic freeze.
