Losing weight and burning fat DOES NOT have to be a losing battle!  You have more control over it than you think. Small tweaks can make a BIG difference. Here are a few reasons why you’re not seeing the results you’d like:

You’re not strength training.

Often, people who are not losing weight don’t do strength training. The more lean, sleek muscle you have, the faster your resting metabolism is because muscle is the body’s most metabolically active tissue.

You’re not exercising in a way that forces your body to adapt.

The adaptive response requires energy; it raises your body’s energy needs. The body will then dig into stored fat for this energy.  If you’ve been strength training and the weight hasn’t been coming off, it may be because you’re not doing much more than merely going through the motions.

You drink diet sodas.

Artificial sweeteners often trigger hunger.

Too many processed foods.

These trigger hunger, and too much white sugar and high fructose corn syrup will get stored as fat.

You skip breakfast.

Breakfast, even if it’s only a cup of yogurt, tends to tame later-day appetite. Skipping it can make you feel entitled to overeat later on.

You don’t do HIIT: high intensity interval training.

This form of cardio blasts fat.

Inconsistent exercise habits.

Regular exercise means the difference between success and failure.  Even if you’re doing everything right in the gym, consistency is the MOST important thing.

Poor sleeping habits.

Research shows that under six hours of sleep and over nine are strongly linked to excess body fat.

Too much daytime napping.

Excessive inertia means a slowed metabolism to accommodate it.

Before you blame your parents and grandparents for having “the wrong genes,” review your lifestyle habits to find out what can be modified to promote fat loss.
