Lifestyle The Top 5 Reasons You Can’t Lose Weight

Here are my top 5 reasons people can’t lose weight, or seem to fail at weight loss. Please feel free to comment and ask questions!

1. You are skipping meals or cutting calories.

I want you to think about this! Within 24 hours of going on a “low calorie” diet which is eating less than 2000 calories per day, you immediately deplete your brain chemistry and also has been shown to increase lipolytic which is a fat storing enzymes in the body. When this happens your body will have increased cravings which are usually sugary foods.

2.  Poor attitude!

When you walk into Live Train Evolve the first thing you see is “Be Determined”. This is for a reason. When you are working out you must have a positive mind set. This is also true for making any lifestyle modifications if they are going to be a part of the long lasting change you are seeking. If you start with a bad attitude you will be doomed before you start.

3. Wrong Exercise

Many of you are over exposing yourself to over-training and or cardiovascular exercise. Remember when you are working out your goal is to expend energy to see results. If you are working out on a empty tank it will only set you back and become an additional energy drain.

4. Adrenal Fatigue

The adrenals are tied into every major physiological systems in our bodies. If they are completely wiped out because of chronic stress you will have a hard time accomplishing your weight loss goals even if you are doing everything right when it comes to diet and working out.

5. Poor Sleep Habits

This is a biggie. I know many of us are not getting the recommended sleep. But sleep is important as it helps the body repair physically and neurogenic during the hours we are resting. Poor sleep can lead to over consumption of carbs, caffeine, sugars and it could also lead to increase fatigue and cravings. This will all sabotage your day making putting you in a poor mood.

Many of us do not realize how important many of these items are. Just from talking with many people throughout the years many of these come up very often.
