8 Clues As To Why You Are Not Shedding Pounds

August 04, 2015 2 min read

Not dropping pounds can be discouraging when you are working tirelessly. Before you give up, perhaps making a simple lifestyle shift can be all it takes to get your body burning fat! Here are 8 clues that could explain your lack of weight loss: #1 You Don't Have Enough Muscle Muscle mass can trigger a powerful effect within your system. By developing muscle, your body will burn more calories even while you're not exercising. Cool, huh? Add some light resistance training to your routine to start. #2 You're Not Eating Enough Portion size may seem like a great way to lose weight, but not eating enough calories can actually slow your metabolism down to sluggish pace. Eating lots of little nutritious meals in the day can help keep you full and energized all day long. #3 You're Not Hydrated You sometimes may think you're starving, but you're really in need of water. Start your day with a big glass, substitute sugary drinks for H2O and down a bottle before every meal. #4 You're Skipping Macronutrients Low fat or carb-free diets don't work. You need good fats for proper health and whole grains to get fibre. #5 You Don't Eat Breakfast I know, I know. "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." There is a lot of truth to it, but if you're not hungry or busy in the A.M., grab a smoothie filled with things like bananas, Greek yogurt and ground flaxseed to stay fuelled. #6 You're Stressed Stress can cause you to binge on bad foods and send signals to your brain to maintain fat cell storage. Try exercising, yoga and meditation to curb your stress level. #7 You're Always Going Out To Eat You tend to eat more when you're out at a restaurant, and many dishes have added sugar and salt. Stick to clean choices like salads when out for dinner. #8 You're Eating "Diet" Food Diet sodas and any boxed "zero calorie" treats are unhealthy and loaded with chemicals which are damaging to your body. Try to eat fresh produce, lean meats and anything that doesn't come with a frightening ingredient list! What are your best tips for shedding pounds? Source: Active Beat
