Why you keep failing to lose weight

If the approach is wrong, you should never expect a good result. We figured out why your weight still won’t go away, even if you refuse all sweet, floury and high-calorie foods.

YOU SHOULD EAT IN A BEAUTIFUL WAY

You completely changed your diet:

  • stopped eating fatty and salty foods,
  • gave up red meat,
  • switched to soybean sprouts.

And you still can’t lose weight!

Most likely, you did it all wrong. Many nutritionists say that today, you mostly need to pay attention to how much you eat, and not so much attention to what you eat (of course, provided that you still observe some rules).

For example, you read that it’s most useful to snack at work with apples. You take the juicy fruit with you to the office and chew it in front of your computer, irritating your colleagues with the crunch, and your brain with the though of better having an apple muffin instead of an apple.

Thus, you concentrate on the benefits of the product, which is not a sufficient motivation for switching to proper eating, and not on its taste or external qualities, which are the most important.

When you are on a diet, it is important to really fall in love with healthy food, and not simply to abandon harmful eating habits. At this point, the lessons by food bloggers will help you. These guys are capable of turning a simple salad leaf into a desired something.

BE REALISTIC

If you feel that you can not completely abandon sweets, do not torture yourself. Allow yourself having a piece of your favorite pie or a serving of ice cream once a week. It’s good to think that on Monday you will easily switch to a useful eating system that is not typical for you. In reality, this simply does not happen.

DO NOT DIVIDE FOOD INTO "BAD" AND "GOOD"

The biggest mistake is to eat a lot of exceptionally good and “non-calorie” food. You have t o be moderate in everything.

  • If you overeat the “good” berries, your blood sugar level will go off scale.
  • Tons of avocados will lead to the fact that you do not have time to burn all the calories received (you know that these fruits are very caloric?).

*Moderation, the main thing is to be moderate in everything.

SET DAILY GOALS

Most of the slimming people formulate their goals like this:

  • “Lose 10 kg in 5 weeks”
  • “Fit into the jeans I wore in the 10th grade” 
  • “Lose weight to the size of my girlfriend”

That is categorically wrong. All these goals are aimed at the result that you cannot see immediately. When we don’t see any changes, we quickly give up and lose all desire to continue the just cause.

To achieve the necessary result, you need to properly motivate yourself. Put one long-term goal, let it be the ill-starred jeans from the 10th grade. And break the way to this dream into small tasks, the fulfillment of which will lead to success.

For example

Not to have any bread for the entire of Monday
Dine with salad
Run 5 times around the house tomorrow
Eat yogurt for breakfast

*Thus, you will see that everything is going according to your weight loss plan, and the sense of pride is an excellent motivation.

FIND THE RIGHT WAY

It is a mistake to think that diets are suitable for everyone without exception and it will help you, if your girlfriend managed to lose weight by eating only the sun’s rays. One person requires a balanced diet and more sleep, another protein diet and nights in the gym – everything is very individual, so first, before you decide to lose weight, listen to yourself and make an appointment with a dietician.
