Bad Habits that Stop You From Losing Weight
YOU EAT RIGHT, exercise and are consistent…but nothing is working. The people who say “Eat less, move more” has your blood boiling because clearly that’s not the solution…
Or is it?
Are there some bad habits you might not realize are part of your routine that may be stalling or slowing your weight loss?
There are some common overlooked habits that can be the nemesis of weight loss. Here they are:
Bad Habits that Stop You From Losing Weight: Not Enough Water
While we have debunked that water ‘flushes out fat’, it is necessary for bodily functions that can aid in your weight loss goals. Plus—it can help you feel fuller. Drink a glass of water before every meal and in between. If you struggle with boring water, add stevia-sweetened flavor packs to it.
Bad Habits that Stop You From Losing Weight: You Eat at Night
While we’ve also debunked that eating food at night causes weight gain, a lot of overweight people who eat at night, do so because they eat so little during the day. In the end, they overeat and don’t realize it. Eat breakfast—because people with good BMIS have this habit, and eat every few hours to keep your body fueled and full. That way, when 9pm rolls around, you won’t give into cravings.
Bad Habits that Stop You From Losing Weight: You Eat Too Fast
You might have heard your mother say ‘slow down!’ or ‘count how many times you chew!’ as a child. This is really important because your masticating mouth is faster than your brain. Your brain needs about 20 minutes to realize its full. Your body has to send hormones all the way up there once it feels satisfied. Give your brain time to catch up and don’t eat so fast! Focus on eating. Count your chews if you must. Divide your portions on your plate and ensure you only eat the second portion after 20 minutes.
Bad Habits that Stop You From Losing Weight: You Drink High Calorie Beverages
Counting calories means ALL calories. If you’re a sweet drink drinker—you may be drinking several hundred calories per day that you’re not aware of. Replace all but one of your sweet drinks with tea, flavored water or other low-calorie options.
Bad Habits that Stop You From Losing Weight: Your Portions are Supersized
People may not realize today that plates and bowls seem to get bigger and bigger. Portion control is a critical factor to losing weight. Buy portion control plates and bowls or use measuring cups to ensure you’re not a victim of ‘super size’ portions.
Bad Habits that Stop You From Losing Weight: You Eat Too Much Salt
Salt makes you retain water. Retaining water makes you bloat and ups the number on the scale, effectively covering up your progress. Reduce your salt intake not only for weight loss efforts, but for overall health.
That’s it. It’s more about self-awareness. Take a look at your routine, eliminate any of these bad habits and see how much closer you get to your goal.
