10 Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight12:00 AM
If you don't workout regularly, you do not see results. Consistency is the key! There is no way around hard work. Every body works differently. Personally, I see results 2-3 weeks later. For example, if I am regular with my workout and clean eating throughout this week, I will see result three weeks later, aka first week of April. And if I fall of the bandwagon before that I will never see results. You do the maths.
7. Excessive Snacking
Bad news: exercise makes you want to eat more—but of course, you shouldn't! Most of us grossly overestimate the number of calories we burn during out workout. The good news: high-intensity workouts help contain your appetite. Hence, pick up the pace and decrease food cravings. #2 & #3 will also come in handy to solve this problem!
8. Sedentary Lifestyle
Just working out might not be enough, if your remaining of the day is stationary or is spent on a chair. Try and take a walking break. Experts recommend setting a timer on the computer to remind you to move every hour. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park far away from the mall, etc. etc.
9. Poor Digestion
You are not what you eat; you are what you digest and absorb! Our gut health will determine our overall wellbeing. The bacteria that lies in our gut helps us to fight disease, process our food, make nutrients and make hormones etc. Also, if you're feeling low, tired, and moody and your diet contains alcohol, coffee and sugar, you need to give your body a break. When your liver is sluggish, it struggles to process substances/toxins/hormones efficiently and this leads to toxic build up and this will inevitably cause weight gain.
10. Don't Drink Water
Last but not the least, we've all heard how important H2O is when it comes to shedding pounds. It helps to suppress appetite, so you're less likely to overeat. But that's not all: When you're dehydrated, your kidneys can't function properly, so the body turns to the liver for additional support. Because the liver is working so hard, more of the fat you consume is stored rather than burned off.
