Now a lot of you may have a similar goal this summer and it’s to lose weight. Losing weight isn’t easy but there are some things you may be doing that’s making it even harder! Here are 4 things we think may be the reason you’re not seeing the results you want!
1. You’re Stressing
Too much stress will cause a disruption in your metabolism. Your appetite increases, your muscle starts to break down, and your body ends up storing more and more fat. Exercise regularly to help control stress levels.
2. You’re on a Restriction Diet
Restricting foods can kill your metabolism, especially when you knock out an entire food group, like carbs. You need carbs, protein, and fats to function normally. Your body will actually hold onto more fat when you start restricting foods because your body feels like it is starving and you’re just left with a lot of fat and a slower metabolism. On the same, never skip a meal or you’ll depress your metabolism.
3. You’re eating “meal replacement” shakes/bars
These bars are usually loaded with saturated fats and preservatives so stay away from them if you can. Bars and shakes simply can’t fill all of nutritional components of whole foods. Some bars are nothing more than glorified candy bars so make sure you read up on their nutritional facts and ingredients.
4. You’re using Diet Pills/Diruetics
Never use diuretics to drop a few pounds because they cause you to lose water and electrolytes, which can lead to dehydration. Dehydration causes your body to retain water.
We really hope you enjoyed these tips and keep working towards your goals..the healthy way! You can do this!
