Lets face it, being overweight is becoming a huge problem because of 10 main reasons.

If you are trying to lose weight and can’t seem to make any progress, here are 10 reasons why you are not losing weight (and how to fix them).

Why You Are Not Losing Weight

Here are the top 10 reasons you are not losing weight.

1.) You come up with too many excuses.

2.) You eat more than you should.

3.) You self-sabotaging yourself.

4.) You turn to food for comfort.

5.) Your metabolism is not working correctly.

6.) You have false ideals around food and eating.

7.) You don’t work out.

8.) You are an endomorph.

9.) You are retaining water.

10.) Your diet is out of whack.

How do I fix these problems?

If any of these hit home to you, you are on your way to solving your weight loss issues.

First I want you to cultivate motivation every day to ensure that your morale, focus, and drive stays sky-high.

1.) Too many excuses.

There comes a time in your life where you need to take control and responsibility for what you do.

I struggle with this every day; you aren’t alone.

Think about it… Each day you let your bad habits and bad ideals around food guide you, it is another day you are going to be unhappy with how much weight loss you are (not) experiencing.

Be conscious of what you are saying and telling yourself; every time you make an excuse, stop and find a solution.

2.) You eat more than you should.

Learning to say no to extra food, especially if it is a comfort food, is hard to do.

If you can learn how to listen to your internal body cues of when you are hungry and when you are satisfied, you are going to change your life around quickly.

Just because it is lunch time or dinner time doesn’t mean you have to eat. If you’ve had a large breakfast, it is okay to skip lunch and have a healthy dinner.

3.) You are self-sabotaging yourself.

Rewarding yourself with food because you just walked a mile just made your workout a waste of time.

Pay attention to your triggers of self-sabotaging; you might be surprised how often you do it.

4.) You turn to food for comfort.

Whether you are stressed, full of anxiety, or scared, emotional eating is very harmful to your health and goals.

I am very guilty of eating to comfort myself and I have been trying to break myself of this.

Instead, find a constructive hobby or activity to replace your eating; mine happens to be writing and reading more.

5.) Your metabolism is not working correctly.

Usually your metabolism is not the problem, it is the fact that you have tried too many fad diets or tried to starve yourself skinny.

There are many types of eating patterns such as intermittent fasting, frequent feeding, the usual 3 times a day, etc.

Start cutting out junk food and highly processed foods, start cutting down on the soda, and watch the results.

Simply changing a small portion of your diet will help.

6.) You have false ideals around food or eating.

There are too many bad myths floating around about what’s “healthy” and how you “should eat.”

Forget everything you’ve learned from your parents, siblings, and friends about eating; you are the size you are because of them.

Pick up a book, listen to me, and work your butt off and I’ll show you how to really lose the weight.

7.) You don’t work out.

Exercising is great for the metabolism, it helps the body stay active, and it will improve your overall quality of life.

Take any of my workouts and start doing them.

Don’t worry about how much you lift, what you think you look like in the gym, or what others think of you… just train.

The more active you become, the more healthy habits you will pick up.

8.) You are an endomorph.

Without getting too deep into the meaning, an endomorph is one who is naturally susceptible to not losing weight easily.

This just means you have to work a little harder, eat a little cleaner, and stay a little more active.

Don’t let this excuse ruin your ability to get the body you want.

9.) You are retaining water.

Eating an extraordinary amount of carbs or salt will make you retain water.

If you do not drink enough water, your body will hold onto whatever it can so that it has enough for its functions.

Drink more water, cut down on the processed foods, and watch your sodium intake.

But seriously, don’t swear of salt and other seasonings because it has some sodium in it; that’s one of those false ideals many people have.

10.) Your diet is out of whack.

What you are eating is called your diet.

Never refer to “eating less” or “changing what you eat” as a diet because that term is generally looked at as a temporary fix.

Quit eating as much junk food, processed foods, and sodas.

Eat foods you have to cook and use fresh ingredients as often as you can.

 

No more excuses! I am giving you the tools to ensure you reach all of your goals.

It’s your turn to go out there and achieve them!
