5 reasons you’re not losing weight

2 Jul


1. Your body has hit the weight loss plateau. This is one thing every person on a weight loss spree dreads. Your body becomes resistant to your workout and nothing seems to be burning even an ounce of your fat. The best way to overcome this plateau is to change your workout routine. Either introduce a new, more rigorous exercise or alter the duration. Just don’t lose hope. Your hard work will pay off well.


2. You don’t eat enough fat. Yes, you’ve got me right. You do need ‘good’ fat to fight with the ‘bad’ one. So grab a handful of nuts and enjoy munching!


3. You don’t drink enough water. As strange as it may sound you do need enough water to not only keep you hydrated but to lose fat as well. Drink at least 8 to 12 glasses of water every day.


4. You are not consuming enough calories. Well, if you aren’t eating enough you won’t burn enough. Its as simple as that. You do need energy to burn calories, right? Make sure you include lots of fruits, vegetables, proteins and fibre in your diet. Cut down your sugar and carb intake.


5. Do not torture yourself. Its okay to give in to your cravings once in a while. Have a cheat day but make sure that you work out hard and balance your calories for the remaining week.


Losing weight is not as difficult as it seems. You just need dedication, a strong will and never-say-die attitude. Its a gradual process and needs a lot of patience. You didn’t put on weight overnight, right? So don’t expect it to vanish that fast. Keep striving and you’ll reach your goal weight. In any case, be proud of who you are. The only person you are losing weight for should be the one in the mirror. Good luck! 🙂

    I totally agree with the calorie burning part! and to add to this, i read it somewhere that eat food that actually tend to burn themselves and give you energy! for example adding onion to the menu or using brown wheat flour…
