Struggling to lose weight, even though you're diet is good?

You may be doing everything right when it comes to dieting, but, still not losing weight. Here are some things that can keep you from losing those pounds!

  • You’re not drinking enough water: When you don’t drink enough water, your body retains it. That means extra weight and bloat. If you can’t seem to remember to drink your water, download a hydration app and drink up! 
  • You aren’t getting enough sleep: Our body produces two important hormones while we sleep -- leptin and adiponectin. Leptin is a natural appetite suppressant, and adiponectin helps regulate insulin in the body. If you don’t get enough sleep, you end up craving fat and carbohydrates that can’t be processed properly. 
  • You're stressed: Stress produces cortisol, and cortisol is responsible for visceral fat in the body – the bad fat that usually makes its home around your midsection. Stress can also cause cravings and emotional snacking. 
  • You're working out too much: Exercise also produces cortisol, because it causes stress in your body. If you exercise too much -- combined with your stress -- your body can start holding on to water and fat because there is just way too much cortisol in your system. 
  • You aren’t weight training: Cardio is great for burning calories right away. But if you don’t build muscle, you can’t improve your metabolism and enjoy a continued calorie burn -- even at rest. 
  • You're overeating after working out: Working out is not an excuse to eat more. Make sure you are tracking your food intake -- because even that protein shake after a workout could be adding more calories to your diet than you realize. 
  • You’re not eating enough: If you don’t eat enough your body will go into starvation mode and your metabolism will slow way down -- making it next to impossible to drop weight. (Guest of a Guest)
