Reasons why you can’t lose weight
1: Rewarding Yourself with Food
The big mistake that everyone make is after they finish with their exercise they are rewarding with food.If you reward yourself with ice-cream or sandwich that may have many more calories than you’ve just burned off with exercise. Healthy eating still stands when you exercise.
2: Weighing In Too Often
Your weight fluctuates on a daily basis and for women, based on your monthly cycle. Continuously stepping on the scale will inevitably result in weight fluctuations. Weighing in too often made our list of top don’ts given by the experts.
3: Picking Throughout the Day
Don’t think a few bites here and there matter? WRONG! With snacking can give you over 1000 extra calories per day that you may not be aware.
Instead: Jot down everything you eat and drink, even those small bites and handfuls of gummy bears throughout the day.
4: Not Enough Exercise
In order to lose weight and see more results, you need to work hard to reach the recommended amount of time you exercise.
The recommended minimum to help reduce the risk of diseases is at least 30 minutes most days of the week of moderate-intensity physical activity. For weight management, it’s at least 60 minutes most days of the week.
5: Lack of Sleep
Women who didn’t get enough shut eye (less than 5 hours per night) were 32 percent more likely to experience major weight gain of 33 pounds or more as compared to women who slept at least 7 hours a night.
6: Drinking Liquid Calories
Juice, soda, lemonade and chocolate milk can tack on hundreds of unwanted calories when you’re trying to shed the pounds. Protein drinks and smoothies are also hidden sources of hundreds of calories, especially when numerous portions are consumed at one time.
7: Overindulging On Healthy Foods
Olive oil, nuts, brown rice, whole wheat bread and avocado are all very healthy foods. But every food has a calorie amount and a proper portion for your body. For example, 3/4 cup of cooked brown rice will run around 150 calories. Most people consume 4 to 5 times that amount at once, racking up between 600 to 750 calories just on rice!
