Five reasons why your not getting results from diet and exercise

I think many people mistake the word “diet” to mean that it’s a quick fix for a certain amount of time, and then they can go back to what they used to do. When embarking on a weight loss and exercise plan, we must remember that this should become part of our routine. Eating well and exercising is an essential part of anyone’s lifestyle -that wants to become healthy and maintain a great shape throughout their lives. Losing weight takes a little bit of time, using a few tactics discussed in this post. 

Five reasons why your not getting results from diet and exercise

  1. You are not eating the right foods. Diet is your most essential step towards weight loss. If you want six-pack abs, you need to pay attention to the things you eat every single day. Perhaps you are overeating processed foods (which can include protein bars), not paying attention to hidden sugars and additives. I always make my food at home, so I know what goes in them. I may eat out on some occasions, but I always make sure those meals filled with nutritious choices like green veggies, a lean cut of protein, and some good quality carbs. You don’t have to eat bland food, but you need to make sure your food is nourishing. You will not only become leaner, but you will also feel better.

  2. You’re restricting food groups. Moderation is vital to have a flexible eating plan. I don’t go out of my way to eat sugar-filled treats, but I may indulge in them once a week, perhaps. I never make it a big deal, and I go back to eating well when it’s over. I know that eating that way won’t make me feel good, and therefore, I will not be able to get the results I want. Remember to make healthy swaps of different foods; instead of using sugar, try some zero caloric natural sugar, or if you’re going to make a cake, use almond and coconut flour instead. There are so many alternatives – just experiment and see what you prefer.

  3. You’re not consistent with your workouts. You really should be as consistent as possible when working out. Going to the gym one day a week is like eating correctly for only a couple of days – it just doesn’t work. Our bodies need time and effort to change. Three to four workouts is enough – but you should at least aim to be as active as you can every single day—training in the mornings before work or the afternoons. Do whatever works best for your schedule.

  4. You gave up too fast. It takes longer than you think to lose weight. Weighing yourself every day isn’t going to help you out in that sense. If you stay consistent with your workouts and nutrition, you will see results. It takes time and constant effort to know what works – and you can only find out through trial and error.

  5. You don’t give it everything when working out. If you train, it needs to be relatively intense. If it’s not, you won’t be able to get the results you desire. Don’t be one of those people “pretending” to train but scroll through your phone. Training to lose weight and get in shape takes a bit of effort and maybe some sweating. It’s only a tiny amount of time, so do give it your very best and your everything. It’s well worth the effort.
