You are eating healthy and exercising daily but are unable to lose weight. Reasons you are not losing weight despite all your efforts:
1.You are taking fewer calories than needed: To lose weight, you need to burn off more calories than you eat, but eating too little can have adverse effects. Skipping meals and drastically reducing your calories can force your body to store up calories instead of burning them, making it difficult to get rid of that excess fat.
2. You reward yourself with food after exercise: We usually overestimate how much calories we burnt during exercise and underestimate how much we eat. Post workout high calorie treat can sabotage your weight loss goal.
3.You are still drinking sugar: Sports drinks, vitamin water, fruit juices are loaded with sugar. Even if you consume diet versions, they contain artificial sweeteners, these if consumed in large amounts trigger insulin, which sends your body into fat storage mode and leads to weight gain
4.You are not getting enough sleep: If you don't take proper 7-8 hrs sleep at night you may feel tired and you are less likely to indulge in exercise. Short sleep is also linked with high levels of ghrelin( a hormone which increases appetite) in the body.
5.You are not properly hydrated: Drinking water can make you feel full . If you do not drink enough water, your body becomes dehydrated. This will lead to muscle cramps, fatigue, tiredness and slow metabolism. A dehydrated body also holds on to all the water it can get because it does not know when it will get more, leading to water retention in which your body weighs more.
6.You have been doing same exercise for last few months: Your body adapts to any type of exercise over time. As you get used to a type of exercise, it becomes less challenging and as a result less effective. Changing your workout will challenge /surprise the body. If your body is used to cardio increase the intensity or do interval training. Include strength training for better results.
7.You are taking too much stress: When you're stressed out, your body produces a hormone called cortisol, which may lead to increased fat storage. Stress may also lead you to reach for packaged and processed comfort foods.
