Every year there are all types of people making goals to get in shape by eating better and working out more. All too often, many people quit before they reach their goals because their results are slow moving or none at all. If you fall into this category, read on. I will reveal to you the 5 reasons you aren't losing weight.
Let me start by saying, I've been here before. I ate all the right foods, worked out 1-2 times per day, and even joined a few weight loss groups. Now it's you. You had the motivation and momentum, but the results just wouldn't live up to your efforts, and so you gave up.
You thought you knew what to do, but somehow your plan went south. Well, in addition to being impatient and perhaps you even entertained a not so positive mindset, here are 5 Reasons You Aren't Losing Weight even though you're trying.
I was guilty of this one myself for over a decade. Not because it was intentional, but because I'm not a morning person so getting up even 10 minutes earlier for food was not even a mere option in life. When I did start eating breakfast, it was a muffin or croissant and cup of tea or a cup sugar-laden, caramel drizzled coffee. If you're any part of human, and not losing weight, chances are you're also catching up on the last possible minute of snooze or dipping out of the morning rush hour traffic for a SB or DD Coffee Fix! Neither option is good, especially skipping breakfast. Your body uses food as fuel, and when you put it into starvation mode, it holds on to every little crumb, compounds it into a snowball of fat, and deposits it on the body part you thought you liked the most. Okay, not really, but you get it, right? Studies actually show that people who eat breakfast on a regular basis lose more weight than those who don't. So get up, and eat up....just not at the donut shop!
Yes, cardio is good, and it's great for conditioning. But, if you want to rev up your metabolism, burn more calories, and partake in a workout that'll still be working long after you quit, you need to step off the machine and into the weight room. Cardio helps you burn calories while you working out, but when the machine stops, so does your calorie-burning efforts. Pumping a little iron will keep your metabolism revved up for hours after you're done with your workout, helping you maximize your workout for the best results. No worries, you won't get all "swole" unless you're aiming for it.
Okay, so I have a special kind of dislike for low-carb and no-carb diets. Every fitness person knows your body needs carbs, especially if you're committing to working out. It's not protein that accounts for most of your energy, it's carbs. So if you're feeling a little sluggish even though you think you're doing everything right, check your nutritional balance. Not eating an entire good group will leave you deficient. Now before you get your panties all in a bunch, no, a bag of chips won't do you any good, but your fruits, veggies, and whole-grains will take you a long way. So instead of saying I don't want to eat carbs, just concentrate on eating healthy portions of real food and this won't be an issue for you.
You Say, "To Hell With Portion Control. I Earned This "Treat"
Let me just dispel the myth upfront....YOU WILL NEVER JUST WORK IT OFF LATER! Okay, now that I've got that off my chest....you need to measure everything until you have the routine down perfectly, or near perfect. Your portions sizes may seem like a small thing, for example, a cookie. Only that one cookie is 300 calories and you just happened to down 10 of those bad boys in like 30 minutes. So in essence you just ate about two days worth of meals in half of an hour and you still have more meals to go for the day. Know what your limits should be and stay within those guidelines.
You Can't, or just WON'T Kick the Soda and High Sugar Beverages
One can of soda per day can add at least 12 lbs per year; 2 cans per day? 35 pounds!! If you're a diet soda drinker, you're worse off. Studies have shown that the chemicals in diet sodas causes an increase in cravings, causing people to eat more. Further studies have shown diet soda drinkers to have a higher percentage of weight gain than non diet-soda drinkers. Oh, yeah, and did mention diet sodas contains chemicals like formaldehyde? Like who TF thinks it's okay to drink that? If you want flavor, drop some fruit in your water. If you need to drink juice, look for 100% pure, no sugar added juice. You can also blend up your own smoothies. This will make a HUGE difference.
