5 Reasons Why You Are Not Able To Reduce Weight
Are you trying to lose weight but not seeing the results you want? You're not alone. Many people struggle to shed excess pounds despite their best efforts. One common approach is to eat fewer calories, but for some people, this approach simply doesn't work. If you're one of these people, don't give up just yet.
In this blog post, we'll discuss five reasons why you may not be losing weight, even if you're eating less. Understanding these reasons can help you identify what's standing in the way of your weight loss goals and take steps to overcome these obstacles.
5 Uncommon Reasons
1. You're eating the wrong foods
Weight loss starts with eating the right foods. Most people eat foods that are bad for their body, and most do not even notice. You should never feel bloated after a meal. Your stomach should not be distended. The wrong foods can cause us to be bloated, tired, cranky, or even in pain. Foods that should be cut out for weight loss should include bread, processed sugar, corn, and dairy. These foods are very hard to breakdown and digest, leading to a dysfunctional digestive tract.You also won't lose weight if you still drink alcohol and sodas. Cutting out all these inflammatory foods can help you start to lose weight. And to maintain the weight loss, don't reintroduce these foods back into your diet. I cannot imagine any dessert or meal that's worth me having a painful, bloating stomach.
2. You're eating when you're not hungry.
Most people eat when they're not hungry. Ask yourself before your next dinner, "Am I actually hungry for this meal?" The answer might surprise you. We tend to eat 3 meals a day because we were taught that from a earlier age. But no one loses weight by eating more. Food is sustenance and it provides our body with a certain type of gasoline in order to function. Only eat when you're hungry. And try to only eat real foods (foods that came from nature).
3. Your liver is inflamed.
The liver is our major detoxifying organ. The liver also stores all of our nutrients, every food we have eaten, every medication we have consumed, every alcoholic drink, every soda. The liver needs nutrients in order to function. If the liver is full of prior medications, sodas, processed foods and alcohol, there is no room for vital nutrients.Over time, this will irritate the liver which will directly contribute to metabolic dysfunctional and weight gain. People who cannot lose weight usually have an irritated liver. When starting any weight plan, include a liver detox supplement to help reduce liver irritation. Great liver detox supplements include N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), Milk Thistle, Glutathione, DIM, and Turmeric.
4. You're working out wrong.
You're working out too much or not the right way. Weight resistance training is a great way to lose weight. Running might not always help a person lose weight. I have seen plenty of overweight marathon runners. And people who work out 6 times a week might cause weight gain from the inflammation of overused muscles and joints. Dry sauna is a great way to lose weight and get your cardio in. Replace some of your workouts with the dry sauna and see how it helps your weight loss.
5. Being stressed out raises Cortisol levels in the body.
Cortisol is our "stress hormone." Cortisol is good in small amounts, but heavy stress can release too much Cortisol long term. This can be bad for health. Too much Cortisol can cause swelling, throughout the body. A person who is chronically stressed, has too much Cortisol in their body, that can lead to weight gain. Throw in negative thoughts, which can also raise Cortisol levels, and now one can see how stress causes weight gain.We hope this blog has provided some insight on why your weight loss plan might not be working. When you are ready to start a new weight loss program again, incorporate some of these ideas into your plan so that it can be successful. Weight loss should be a holistic approach to your health. Weight gain is usually a by-product of dysfunction in the body. Address these dysfunctions for successful weight loss.
