Do you feel like you’ve tried everything you can but nothing seems to work? Many who try to lose weight are confused about how they can do so and keep it off. The reason why it has become harder for you to lose weight is that you’re not doing the right things or insignificant choices you make every day are getting in the way of your weight-loss goal.
Here are some of the reasons why you are not able to shed unwanted weight off despite all your efforts.
A Low Resting Metabolic Rate and High Metabolic Efficiency
You may have trouble losing weight if your body is metabolically efficient, but burns fewer calories while in motion. Same goes for a lower resting metabolic rate, i.e., body spending fewer calories maintaining your body at rest.
Because of your Hormones
Hormones such as cortisol, insulin and leptin have a key role in weight gain. If you have done everything you could to lose weight, see a qualified clinician to check for hormonal dysregulations. Healing hormonal pathways can make the change so that you can lose weight.
Medical Conditions can keep you from Losing Weight
If you haven’t been able to lose weight despite making lifestyle changes that were needed, there’s a chance that your medical condition is keeping you from losing weight. Regardless of your medical condition, you are not going to be able to lose weight unless you make an extra effort. But first, you have to see your health care provider to ask him about the way out and lose weight.
Not including exercise in your regimen, or not exercising enough
Diet alone can’t help you lose weight; you need to combine it with exercise. Health experts agree that the positive way to proceed to weight loss is to eat and exercise. Incorporating healthy foods in your diet, avoiding overeating and exercising regularly helps you get to a healthy body weight.
Are you Skipping Meals?
If you are, this could be the reason. When you’re on a diet, you may think that skipping a meal is a weight-loss bonus. This is not helpful as you think; skipping a meal dips blood sugar level that increases our desire to eat more. You will feel desperate to eat and may end eating more than you should, considering your weight loss regimen.
You don’t Practice Portion Control
Going large on portions is one of the common weight loss mistakes people make. Sometimes they think that they know the size of the portions they should be eating to lose weight, but don’t realise that small additions can make a big difference.
If you can’t lose weight, don’t beat yourself up or abandon your weight-loss plan.
