The 10 Key Reasons Your Diet Isn't Working For You!

You are being committed to your diet but questioning why that weight isn't budging? Here are the 10 reasons your diet isn't giving you results! 1) You're not exercising Diet and exercise go hand in hand. Working out burns calories, which is a key component to weight loss. 2) You're not controlling portions You should be eating a hand-sized portion of each of the 3 staple macronutrients at every meal. These 3 include protein, carbs and healthy fats. 3) You're following a macronutrient fad Forget diets which are "zero-carb" or deprive you of any of the 3 staple macronutrients. They are not sustainable ways to eat. 4) You're not hydrated Water is truly an essential tool to keeping hunger at bay while replenishing your body. 5) You're lacking Omega-3s Omega-3 fatty acids keep your cells fluid, keeping them from retaining fat. You can get omega-3s from fish, nuts and algae. 6) You don't chew "Chew your food!" I can hear my mother say. Sometimes when we scarf down food in a hurry, we forget to pace ourselves. Your brain doesn't get the signal that it's full until 20 minutes after you start eating, so always reserve 20 minutes of time to eat a big meal. 7) You're lacking good fats Good fats are found in fish, avocado, flaxseed and olive oil. Good fats help metabolize bad fats and regulate hormones. 8) You're counting calories Not all calories are created equal. Don't rely on calories to determine what you eat, rely on good nutrition and proper portion control. 9) You drink alcohol Booze in moderation is fine, but it can add to extra poundage around your waist and make it harder to get rid of. 10) You're not sleeping well Proper sleeping patterns play a huge role in digestive, emotional and physical health. Make sure you're getting the recommended 8 hours. What are your top fitness and diet tricks? Share them with us! Do you follow us on Instagram?
