You have just started a diet and are simply not losing weight? Do you exercise regularly and eat very little throughout the day – but the pounds just don’t want to drop? 5 reasons why you don’t lose weight:
Why don’t I lose weight even though I eat less?
In order to lose weight successfully, it is important to eat enough and regularly. If you eat too little, your body goes into a starvation mode in which it no longer burns any calories. Our body needs energy to function properly. But if you skip lunch, you are hypoglycemic. What is happening? You are ravenous!
Why don’t I lose weight despite exercising?
You jog 3 times a week, same distance, same speed, same time. Try to add variety to your training e.g. Jogging before breakfast, longer units, HIIT training and, above all, it is important that you also do targeted strength training. More muscles increase your basal metabolic rate and thus burn more calories! 🙂
Unfortunately, many people overestimate their actual calorie consumption during exercise and then eat far too much. To lose weight successfully, you need to watch out for a calorie deficit. But be careful! This deficit shouldn’t be too big, so that your body doesn’t get into a “hunger panic”.
Why don’t I lose weight with a low-carb diet?
Our body needs carbohydrates to keep the energy balance in balance. It is crucial to have good carbohydrates such as To eat whole grain bread, potatoes, oatmeal, couscous, etc.
Even hard strength training can only build muscle if there are enough carbohydrates. However, you should avoid “empty” carbohydrates in the form of white bread, light pasta, soft drinks and sweets.
How can I lose weight quickly?
I would strongly advise against losing weight “too much” and “too quickly”, as these crash diets rarely bring lasting success. You will lose a few pounds in the short term, but this will mess up your metabolism so much that you will have more pounds on the scales faster than desired.
Only a complete change in diet promises you long-term and sustainable success! Yes, discipline is required! 🙂 You have to want it 100% in your head – but it’s worth it and you will be rewarded with great results !! 🙂
How can I lose body fat quickly?
Basically, the more movement or exercise Muscle activity takes place, the more fat is burned. A good mix between endurance and strength training brings results here. Building muscle also increases your basal metabolic rate. This means that your body burns more fat even when it is completely at rest.
In order to lose weight successfully, it takes more than just regular exercise. “The flat stomach is made in the kitchen” 🙂 Which means: Even if you do hard training every day, but you eat an unhealthy and unbalanced diet, you will not achieve your goals. You can only really make it with a permanent and customized diet change!
