🤦🏻♀️Stuck with weight loss🙅🏻♀️
Doing everything right but the scale just doesn’t drop? If you’re struggling with your fat loss progress, you might be making one of these mistakes.
For many dieters, it’s easy to stay on track during the week, but comes the weekend🤦🏻♀️. It doesn’t matter if you’re perfect Sunday - Thursday, overeating on the weekend, can undo all the progress you made.
Bites, licks, and tastes, add calories up over time. If you know you’re guilty, take a week and try not eating anything outside your planned meals.
You can eat the healthiest foods and still not lose fat. Nuts and nut butters, olive and coconut oil, avocado, etc. (healthy, but calorics) MEASURE YOUR HEALTHY FATS! (Track them with @myfitnesspal). Not to say don’t eat them, but do be mindful of how much you’re eating. A heaping tablespoon instead of a leveled one can be the difference in at least 50 extra calories.
Doing all the exercise with no days off? May seem like the right thing to do, but not giving your body days off to recover can increase cortisol and cause water retention and fat gain. On another hand Gymming but sitting on your butt the rest of the day, then you’re probably not burning that many calories. Increasing your non exercise activity is an easy way to start seeing progress.
You can’t diet forever without your metabolism slowing down, means you’ll be burning less calories overall. You should only be dieting for 8-12 weeks at a time a few times per year. And rotate/alternate your food habits.
Chronic inflammation from too much exercise, unmanaged stress, not enough sleep, gut infections, food intolerances, etc. all increase cortisol and prevent fat loss or even lead to weight gain.
