Here are 4 bad habits that cause weight gain for women and tips for stopping them from hindering your weight loss success.

Weight loss success is challenging and for many women seems like a yo yo, but fear no more as once we unveil four of these bad weight loss habits, you will become more aware and be able to stop yourself from gaining weight hap-hazardly.

4 Bad Habits That Cause Weight Gain For Women

Habit #1: You eat with a small fork. Research has shown that eating with a small fork can cause you to eat more than you usually would with a larger fork. The reason is that you don’t feel that you are eating much and so you keep eating and end up eating more than you would have with a large fork. Large fork eating helps you to feel satiated when eating.

Habit #2: You eat on a big pretty plate. It’s cute to eat on those big pretty plates that you have in the cabinet, but eating on those plates can force you to eat more than you really want or should. On a big plate it’s natural to fill the plate up with a good size meal and then to feel obligated to eat it all. If you use a smaller plate, you will feel like you are eating more while actually eating less.

Habit #3: You drink only zero calorie sodas. Drinking zero calorie drinks causes you actually to eat more “sweets” later. The artificial sweeteners in zero calorie drink cause an unnatural craving to eat more sweets in your other meals, thus you end up eating more sugars than you would have if you hadn’t had zero calorie sodas. Goal is to cut sodas as best as you can all together.

Habit #4: You only do low stress exercises. There is the saying that your body responds to stresses upon it. That means that if you put your body under “good” stress it will respond in a good way. Lifting light weight is one of those good stresses that your body needs to stay fit and stop weight or fat gain. You will burn more calories during and post workout.

Now that you know these very common bad habits that cause weight gain for women, you can avoid them. Remember you just have to lose 1 pound at a time. They habits are easy to change and with and the result can potentially be very good for you and help to start you on your weight loss journey or with getting rid of your cellulite.
