Why You Simply Don’t Lose Weight

Have you ever wondered why after your many attempts to diet and exercise can’t help you lose those extra pounds and saddle bags in your abdominal area? Ever wondered if there is something wrong with your regimen that it takes you an eternity to lose some pounds?

Don’t blame genetics for your problems in losing weight. Other factors like your mood, methods used, temperament, willpower and decisions also matter. You should have full understanding on why you should and how you should lose weight. Here are few points to understand it better.

You’re not eating real food

Why do you need to deprive yourself of eating a healthy “real” meal just for weight loss? Too much addiction to low-carb diet and having fiber-rich juice for breakfast, diet soda for lunch, and wheat breads for dinner, is not guaranteed to be an effective weight loss plan. Simply put, those are empty calorie-diets that will just be flushed out of your system and make you hungrier instead. So before trying these extreme diets, it will be wise to assess first your food combinations per meal plan.

You forget about muscles and bones

We often forget that muscles and bones are also greatly affected by exercise. Relying on the readings of your weighing scale is quite misleading. You think that you’re still not losing weight when maybe you are just developing more muscular volume and denser bone structure. One way to avoid this “blindness” is to have weighing scales that will measure not just your weight but also your body fat percentage. This is effective for tracking your weight loss management properly. Measuring your waist and knowing your vital statistics are also suggested.

Stress, stress and a whole lot of stress

Stress, whether from work, from personal problems or even from mental fatigue, can boost only one thing—appetite. Fears about the effectiveness of your chosen diet and exercise combo are also considered additional stress. Stress triggers cortisol production that promotes fat storage, more insulin resistance and muscle fibers catabolism. If we know how to handle stress through relaxation techniques or simple breathing exercises and learn how to avoid them, then we can prevent or lessen weight gain.

Fading Willpower

Willpower is the fuel to succeed in every weight loss regimen. But like a fuel, willpower also burns out. Hesitations and prejudices on your capability to maintain what you have started can easily go downside. What you need is a proper mindset. It takes one small step at first before going to big changes. Before hitting the gym, why not try early morning walkathons first?

After understanding these reasons why you just can’t seem to lose weight may encourage you to consider other alternatives. Situations when one desire to have fine -toned figures that cannot be achieved through diet and exercise, have solutions. Sample of such solutions are these body sculpting and contouring procedures of SmartLipo. It uses highly-advanced technology in laser lipolysis that assures patients of a less invasive, cost-efficient, less painful and safe treatment procedure.
