WHY AM I NOT LOSING WEIGHT??

click to watch video on why are you still fat?

searching regularly for exercises and food habits to lose weight!!

Tired of trying stuffs given online like less calorie diet, gym , food chats etc!!

Still wondering why you have not lost any pounds???

Well, you are not the only one wondering this way, so relax..

So here is the solution for your question…

Did you know:

There are 6 major factors that destruct our efforts for weight loss ,they are

  • Harmonal Imbalance
  • Toxins
  • Stressed lifestyle
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Less sleep
  • Less protien intake

HARMONAL IMBALANCE:

Wondering how harmones related to weight loss. It’s simple certain harmones released have the tendency to store fat or burn fat. Harmones play a vital role in metabolism and fat storage. The high metabolism rate the high calories are burned. This is the reason why people with thyroid , diabetes and under certain medication seems to gain or lose weight with no effort . You ll eat the same amount and workout the same way but still under some medication or health prob you can seem to gain weight or loss weight. So harmonal Imbalance is the major factor that hinder our efforts to lose weight. Proper consultation with the GP and correcting your health issues will sort out the excess weight gain issue.

TOXINS:

Today our day out is full of pollution and the food we eat contains pesticides. These are those that introduce toxins into our body. These toxins are to be cleared from our body once in a while. Get the best detox products to detoxify. Or you can use homemade stuffs like green tea, lemon tea etc and drink excess of water to wash away those toxins from your body. Once these toxins are out of our body this will help to boost your metabolism level thus leading to effective weight loss.

STRESSED LIFESTYLE:

Nobody today is stress free. But do you know how stress affects your body. Stress releases a harmones called cortisol which is a harmones helping with fat storing. Increased level of stress increase this harmones secretion. Not only that but cortisol also increases the hunger in one thus making you feel hungry often. So try to be stress free and calm down. You need to help your body to so what you wish “weight loss”.

NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY:

Eating just the proper amount of required calories is not suffice to have a healthy body. What we eat matters the most.

See for example a Coke contains 80 calories and a apple contains 110 calories. So does it mean drinking a Coke is better compared to an apple.

Many do this mistake of just seeing the calorie value and not looking through the nutritional value. Best nutritional food is the best diet. A apple or veggies will never put you on unwanted weight. So always check for the nutritional value rich food.

LESS SLEEP:

People think if less they sleep they can spend more time. But to be more productive in the work you do you need sufficient sleep. Sleep cycle disturbance often leads to mental stress. When you lack sleep your body produces a harmore called ghrelin which is a fat storing harmones. With sufficient sleep your body produces leptin which is a fat burning harmone. So more the sleep more calories you burn. With less sleep ,less weight loss.

LESS PROTIEN:

A less protien diet will no induce weight loss. A high protien in diet helps in building muscles and burn fat. The more protien intake helps in good body build and reduce loose fat muscles in body.
