Still don't see Results? Five common methods of weight loss that could destroy your progress

I want to be clear before I even start this message that I think something special works for each of us.

Five common methods of weight loss that could destroy your progress

Before I even begin this message, I want to be clear that I think something special works for every one of us. Just because a weight-loss method or strategy is on this list, it doesn't mean a certain portion of the population couldn't potentially benefit from this method. Some of you may have seen positive changes in your health and life from a few of the methods on this list. Nevertheless, with a significant majority of the population on a diet at any given time and our weight issues keep escalating, it seems like maybe all of us are doing one or more of these things without a good outcome.

Anybody would be different. Our bodies react differently to different stimuli, and our bodies, exercise, and food have complex attitudes and relationships. We all operate from our own unique place and perspective. With that said, I would suggest that some of these diet & exercise habits (wildly popular) may be the very reason a person fails to see progress, despite either diet, exercise, or both.

If you've done some or all of these things with no change in health, weight, body composition or energy levels for the last 4 months or more, you may want to consider a change in strategy:

  1. Calorie counting or using an app to track meals
  2. Using a calorie spending tracker, wearable fitness tech, pedometer, etc.
  3. Daily or weekly evaluate your weight
  4. Work more than 8 hours a week, or work more than 6 days a week
  5. Diet / Calories Cuts
  6. Even the first three items on the list concern tracking; tracking activity, weight, burned or absorbed calories, eating foods, etc. The last two are more about how you eat and how you work out.
Also for the record; an individual can see great results without doing any of the things on the list above. It can be helpful for some of us to track everything and really sharpen your discipline for a while, to some extent. But what about the rest of the population, who continue to struggle? Who has worked hard for months or years, and still does not see results? If you have put in the effort honestly and you do not see results, what is the hesitation to try another approach?

So what are you doing instead, and how are you putting an end to the anxiety that letting go of any of these habits could result in weight gain? You have to trust yourself, trust the process, and switch the focus/energy/discipline to make the right choices, not necessarily micromanaging and monitoring those choices meticulously. Obviously, that's much easier said than done and it takes practice and some initial research so you know you 're on the right track.

Below is a short rundown of how to break from those habits if they no longer support you and you're well being, and what to do instead.

1) To count calories or to use an app to track meals

Embrace a diet based on plants, and fill up with unlimited plants. Remove from your diet processed foods and focus on fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and lean meat (or vegetarian/vegan equivalent). Feed carefully. When you're hungry, eat, and learn to know the signs of feeling full on your body; stop until you feel uncomfortable. Do drink plenty of water. Don't waste time searching for shortcuts; eat healthily.

2) Use of a calorie consumption monitoring app, wearable fitness software, pedometer, etc.

Believe it or not, muscles will still be used and even though you don't wear a tracker as a "witness" to your workouts fat will still be burned. Again, once you've got a general understanding of what you're supposed to do, concentrate off micromanaging your expenses and just show up instead. Pour in on your workouts. Be present and push yourself, and have fun with it (liberally using "fun" here). You don't need a calorie read to know you've been pushing yourself or working hard; do you breathe heavily? Tucked away in sweat? Shaking muscles? Why do you really need a piece of tech to get your workout validated? To top it off, these wearable tech pieces are typically laughably inaccurate when it comes to actually track expenses. They are also almost useless when used for tracking the two most common forms of training; HIIT & weight lifting. So other than keeping you in a hyper-focus of random numbers that lend themselves to a dietary mindset, they are also minimally helpful because of their problems with accuracy.

3) keep a weight check

I used many times a day to weigh myself up. I know how things like this can get their hooks inside you and rule the rest of the day. Obsession is a hilly slope. The thing is, a person's body weight fluctuates continuously, so scale weight isn't the most accurate way to measure the body 's wellbeing, growth, or fitness. People have seen so many tales from our viewers in their "after" image before and after that look 20 lbs lighter but have done gain 10 lbs of muscle and just look more versatile, much leaner and toned. Long story short; if you've been weighing yourself frequently and you don't get the results you 'd want, consider dissecting the scale. Many people who have had a long-standing habit of weighing themselves see a dramatic change in both attitude and real results when they cease to step on the scale.

4) Operate more than 8 hours a week, or work some 6 days a week

If you've been training with us for any amount of time, you'll hear us say "more isn't always better" when it comes to fitness. If you've devoted more than 8 hours, or 6 or more days a week to rigorous exercise routines and you don't see results, there's a good chance you 're not going the right way about it. The very first thing that I'd tackle is how the training sessions of strength, HIIT, mild cardio, and recovery are divided in. The most common mistake I see is getting people to do too much cardio, or HIIT too much. Far to much moderate or stable exercise in the state can have a detrimental impact on metabolism and HIIT should not be performed more than three days a week — more is certainly not better and can lead to injury and illness instead.

Strength training is one of the easiest ways to lose fat, which can lead to a slight boost in metabolism that is applied around the clock, even when you are sleeping. It comes along with a long list of health benefits, too. Please ensure you have a healthy interpretation of strength training for all core muscles, as well as some days of cardio, stretching, and natural rest that should not be overlooked at all.

The next thing to remember is the duration of the training sessions. Yes, that's enough for 40 minutes, three to six days a week. As is 3 to 5 1 hour sessions, or 5 to 6 30 minute sessions. The point is, there are several multiple ways you can arrange your workouts. So if you put in 6-7 days of work a week and don't see results in terms of length, you may benefit from implementing exercises (such as walking or stretching) in a day or two of rest or very light recovery. Duration is also important; if you work out for an hour or more, 5 days a week and don't see results, either your strength, a form of exercise or length can slow you down or stop you from seeing results.

5) Strict diet / Calorie cuts

Would you think eating too little can actually lead to a weight gain? Like the other things on this list, it's complicated and based on several variables, but generally speaking, in order to lose weight, you don't really have to go hungry and, in fact, doing so may thwart your progress. A drastic calorie reduction can cause your body to become more likely to stubbornly hold onto fat, potentially slowing down your metabolism which can cause trouble in both the short and the long term. What's the solution? Similar to the advice provided in paragraph # 1 in this article; concentrate on eating for good health, energy, and feeling good. If you make smart food choices and listen to the hunger and full signals of your body, you don't typically need to count or restrict calories, track every macro every day, eliminate whole food groups or follow any other generally strict diet that has a lot of rigid "rules."
Cutting calories won't solve your weight issues – do this instead ...

Ultimately, if you want a healthy body and a healthy mind, you should commit to living well in a more natural, fluid way that doesn't require you to log every meal or weigh yourself every morning, wear fitness tech as part of your daily uniform, or maintain an exhausting, extremely rigid workout or dietary regime that leaves you feeling hungry, drained and eternally exhausted.

You should eat well and exercise and build a healthier life for yourself, not rework your entire life to look at a certain way or weigh up a certain amount.

I 'd love to hear what you think; what do you guys think? Would you like to see more subjects explored, like this?  Let me know how I can be helpful.
