Sounds familiar? Well, if you have been in a situation like this, you definitely understand the frustration, the despair and the ultimate decision to give up. But here’s the thing, we are here to help you figuring out the reasons behind your failed attempts. And if you are committed to losing weight for an overall better health, then you should definitely check out the list below and see where you fall on the spectrum.
Are You Skipping Breakfast?
Well, if you think that skipping breakfast is going to help you shed some extra pounds, you are terribly wrong. When you wake up, your body requires fuel to start the day and if you opt for a morning without breakfast, you’ll end up eating more at lunch and feel sluggish and fatigued quicker.
Keep in mind that the breakfast is the most significant meal of the day and it should be full of nutrients. In fact, a healthy meal in the morning will energize your body and help you fulfill your daily tasks with vigor and vitality.
Do You Have A Slow Metabolism?
You must have seen people eating more than many but still have a lean body, apparently without any exercise or physical effort. Well, that’s due to their metabolic rate. The faster the metabolism, the more the fat burn.
Metabolism is the process of digesting food. When people have slow metabolic rate, they’re supposed to work more on losing weight or burning fat.
So, if that’s the case, you must go with foods that boost metabolism and engage in physical activities like walking and running as they can boost your metabolism considerably.
Does Obesity Run In Your Genes?
If you had someone in your immediate family who’s overweight or obese, could be your parents, your grandparents, your aunt. Chances are, you got those genes. Obviously, that doesn’t mean you can’t anything about it.
You can go for a low fat, high-protein diet. Since protein-based diet is harder to digest and makes you feel full for a longer period of time, you’ll less likely to munch on unhealthy food items.
Do You Overeat When You Are Stressed?
Stress is bad for your health but in the current scenario, we don’t have much of an option. So instead, we should focus on things that could be altered for the sake of our health.
Most people tend to eat more when they’re stressed out and they often go for comfort foods like ice-cream, cake or a bag of Cheetos & ultimately don’t lose weight even if they stick to a calorie deficit diet. Don’t make that mistake. Keep healthy options ready in your fridge so that when your panic attack makes you feel uncomfortable, you are not at the mercy of junk food.
Do you Get 8 Hours Of Sleep?
Hear of beauty sleep? Well, a good night sleep preserves more than just a pretty face. Restlessness and inadequate amount of sleep result in lack of energy. You feel tired quickly, skip leg day, and end up eating out.
Apart from that, inadequate sleep patterns affect our metabolism, our cognition and hormones. All these imbalances contribute to bad health including obesity.
you now know the reasons and what you can do about them. And if you are a sticking to a healthy lifestyle, not making any mistake, then maybe it’s time for you to consider a bariatric service.
