Why am I not losing weight?

Diet and exercise do not give any results. Why I cannot lose weight? Below are a number of common mistakes that prevent losing weight. Wrong nutrition, which means that eating in the afternoon as well as a heavy dinner contribute to the deposition of excess fat. High-calorie meals are best to be taken for breakfast and lunch, while dinner should be light; also you need to eat no later than 2-3 hours before bedtime. If you really suffer from hunger, you can drink a glass of kefir or eat an apple. It is better to eat more often but in small portions.

Lack of sleep – during the night time, a person thins down. It ought to be said that in order to burn off calories, you need to sleep at least 7 hours a day.

Snacks. What happens if you eat a small snack at the computer, while watching TV or while cooking? Even if the portions are small, they will still affect your body. Then the question will again arise: “Why am I not losing weight?” It is necessary to abandon snacking or minimize them.

Lack of water intake. If a person drinks enough water, he improves the work of the gastrointestinal tract, which helps to burn off calories. Scientists have proven that water contributes to the breakdown of fats. Therefore, drink at least 1.5 liters of purified or still water.

Fitness mistakes

Unsportsmanlike nutrition, which is associated with 80% of all fitness failures. If you exercise every day for 2 hours, do not think that “everything will be burnt off.” Even professional athletes eat in accordance with a special diet. It includes vegetables and fruits, a lot of protein and complex carbohydrates, and as less as possible sweet food.

Fitness allows adding to the diet 200-500 calories per day of training. These calories are supposed to be taken from complex carbohydrates (cereals, cereals, vegetables).

According to various estimates, from 20% to 80% of those who aimed at losing weight suffer from an insufficient or unsystematic knowledge. If there is no possibility to consult with a personal trainer, you are recommended to study physiology yourself. Find credible sources of information, magazines, and websites where sports practitioners and trainers constantly share information.

The load may be either too intense or too weak. Moreover it may not correspond to what the person expected to gain from the training. In this case, the individual will exercise irregularly and not at the right time, which means that he will not even thin down. To calculate the desired workout intensity, you need to have a stopwatch or heart rate monitor and search for the Karvonen method on the Internet: using the formula, you will be able to evaluate whether this or that load is right for you.

In 60% of those who complain about the lack of results, training occurs either too rarely or lasts too little.

You should do it regularly, at least 5 times a week. To do this, choose the option, which most conveniently fits into your daily routine.
