All too often people have complained about setting themselves up on strictly regimented diets and lifestyles, but not losing weight as fast as they wanted to. This is actually a common complaint, one that is heard far and wide as well. So what can be the reason? Well, looking at it from a broad perspective, there could be more than one reason as to why you are not losing weight the way you expected. Which is why we always encourage beginners to be under the guidance of a professional trainer. They can tell you what exactly you should be doing, ironing out your doubt and bunking misconceptions. So until you get to a professional, allow us to lay it on you.
One of the most dangerous things one can do and people do, do (especially young girls), is skipping meals altogether. Your body is not designed to skip meals. That is not how nature intended it. Your body is meant to be fuelled and fed throughout the day so it can function healthily both mentally and physically. Without the proper nutrients, your cells cannot function, and they begin to die. All-in-all, not a good state to be in. People have fallen severely ill before and have even had to receive medical treatment in cases of this going too far, so do not fall into that category.
Liquid Calorie Addition
What we mean by this is that if you are not careful, you will add on all those calories that come comfortably snuggled in your cup of Joe, sugar, sodas and more. Though you may have been watchful of your diet and main meals for the most part, if you have not bothered altering your habits like depending on junk food and takeaway options then you will not see results the way you expected to. Before you start hunting for peptides online, first start keeping a note of those high-sugar/high-calorie items you indulge in on a daily basis.
Portion control is probably one of the hardest things to master, especially when all you can think about is going back for seconds. Now the thing about portion control is that you may feel hungry at the start feeling like you did not enough and so on, but once your body gets used to it, you will find that it has automatically adjusted itself to the new portion. You should, of course, eat for your body weight and height, so a nutritionist’s advice here would be useful. But always remember not to overeat; portion controlling helps with this.
Indulging In Outside Food
Restaurants, fast food outlets. You may absent-mindedly go for add-ons like extra bacon for instance, or a double-layer of whipped cream, caramel drizzle and so much more. Well, best steer clear of these. They contain very high calories which then add up and stick around to stay. So if you have to eat outside, then make smarter decisions when it comes to food. You can make a big difference by paying attention to the smaller things.
