Top 5 reasons why you’re not losing weight on a low-carb diet
1. YOU’RE LOSING FAT, YOU JUST DON’T REALIZE IT BY EATING LOW CARB DIET
Weight loss isn’t linear and there’s a lot more to weight than just body fat. It does not mean that the diet you are taking is not working at all, as long as the general tendency will go down. Be patient and follow low carb diet. You should make a note in a diary for how your clothes are fitting for you. If you’re looking thinner and clothes are looser, then you are just losing your fat doesn’t matter what the scale says.
2. STRESSED ALL THE TIME
Unfortunately, it isn’t always enough to just eat healthily and exercise. If you are stressed always then it will make your body to be in a constant mode. Chronic stress can have negative effects on your hormonal environment, which can increase your hunger and cravings for unhealthy food. If you want to cut back on stress, try meditation and deep breathing exercises.
3. NOT ENOUGH SLEEP
Sleep is incredibly important for overall health and a lack of sleep correlates with weight gains and obesity. A lack of sleep can make you feel hungrier, tired and less motivated to exercise and eat healthily. If you are doing each and everything correctly but still you are not getting proper sleep, then you won’t be able to see the results that you expect.
4. NOT EXERCISING RIGHTLY
You shouldn’t exercise with the goal of burning calories. The number of calories burned while exercising are not so important and can be easily compensated by eating extra bites of the food in the next meal. But it’s important to do the right kind of exercise. If you do nothing but only Cardio on the treadmill will help you to give nice results and doing excessive may turn to be unhelpful. The right kinds of exercise can improve your hormones, increase your muscle mass and make you feel awesome.
5. CHEATING TOO OFTEN
For people who are able to control themselves, having to cheat meals or days every now and then may be fine. For others individuals, especially for those who are a foodie, having their cheat meals regularly are likely to get more harm than getting good. If you are having more than 1-2 cheat meals in a week (or 1 cheat day) then it is going to be excessive. In this type of case, you should completely remove the junk foods from your life which seems to be a good idea for them.
