Why You Are Missing Your Weight Loss Targets (And What You Should Do Instead)

July 07, 2015 2 min read

You've done all the right things. Cut out sugar, dairy and gluten. You exercise like crazy and yet you still aren't losing weight. It almost ever fails, whenever you think you are taking all the right steps, you find out you aren't. Here are some common reasons you may not be losing weight:

1. You're exercising too much

One of the biggest weight gain culprits is cortisol, the stress hormone. If you are over doing your workouts, you may be putting too much pressure on yourself. If you are hitting a spin class in the morning and going for a run at night, you may be overdoing it. Rethink your routine. Try HIIT circuits or weight training a few days a week, and doing yoga or other gentle exercises like walking on the other days. And don't forget your rest days. They are not a sign of being weak. They are necessary to let your body recover.

2. Your liver needs love

If you drink alcohol regularly, eat processed foods and have 2 to 3 coffees a day, your liver may need some TLC. Your liver is a fat burning organ and in order to work properly, it needs to be clear. It is essential for weight loss AND hormone balance. Want to go on a liver cleanse, here's how: Reduce alcohol intake, swap coffee for herbal tea, cut back on sugary, processed foods, eat lots of dark leafy greens at each meal and enjoy plenty of protein-rich foods like eggs, chicken and legumes. It's also worth checking with your doctor about the functioning of your thyroid.

3. You need to let go

Are you working with optimal digestion? Your gut bacteria could be an issue. You need to be going to the bathroom properly. For obvious reasons, constipation can pose a threat to your weight loss If you are not going often enough, you cannot eliminate the waste in your colon. To ease your constipation, take a daily probiotic, drink chamomile tea, stay hydrated. Dehydration is a leading cause of constipation. If you are emotionally holding onto something, it may be making your body tense and prevent you from being able to void your bowels. Sometimes, in order to let go of weight, it is important to let go of your feelings. To let go, you have to really let go. Any of these standing in the way of your weight loss?
