10 reasons you’re not losing weight:
- You’re stressed
- You’re not getting enough sleep
- You’ve been on a diet forever
- You don’t spend long enough in maintenance
- You’re not getting enough movement during the day
- You’re overtraining
- You’re only doing cardio
- You’re eating too much processed food
- You’re estimating how much you’re eating
- Your hormones/thyroid/gut health are out of whack
Lots of factors influence weight loss… and they’re usually not the ones you think about!
If you’ve been dieting for too long, your metabolism may be damaged, meaning weight loss is near-impossible.
If you’re not getting enough sleep, your cortisol is likely very high, which impacts your hormones and slows your metabolism to a crawl.
If you’re over-training you could be putting too much stress on your system which forces the body to ‘hold on’ to the fuel you give it, again, stalling loss.
If you’re not tracking your intake, you’re likely eating more than you think you are, therefore undoing any perceived caloric deficit you thought you had.
So, stop dieting, get sleep, quit overtraining, and start tracking.
Let’s get you back on track and working toward your goals, so you’re not struggling with these 10 reasons you’re not losing weight!
