Troubleshooting For Weight Loss

Weight loss can be a funny thing. Some people take to new exercises and lose weight easily in the first month. Others workout consistently for three months and do not see the results they were hoping for.

Sometimes there is something medical going on. An under active thyroid for example. For the most part it is because something in the program is off.

Here is Troubleshooting For Weight Loss

1. Are you exercising hard enough?

Don’t shoot the messenger! No one likes to hear this one. Unfortunately it Is a big factor in weight loss. To lose weight you have to work out hard. As a general rule, if you are not sweating a lot, you are not exercising hard enough.

2. Are you working out consistently enough?

Exercising one week on, one week off or one day a week might be enough to improve your health, but it won’t help you shed the pounds. To lose weight you need to exercise 2-4 times a week for 20-45 minutes. Start small if you have to. Even 15 minutes is better than nothing. Work your way up to a larger time frame and more intense workout sessions.

3. How is your diet?

As a general rule, most people think they have great diets. What they are not realizing is that they are consuming way more food than necessary. Try counting calories for three days as accurately as possible. You may be surprised. Also, if your diet contains lots of carbs like white pasta, lots of meat (high in saturated fat) or anything breaded or fried you may want to try something else while you are trying to lose.

4. Are you sleeping enough?

If you don’t get much sleep, it may be harder to lose weight. A lack of sleep causes problems that contribute to having a difficult time losing weight. Some of these issues include increased cravings for carbohydrates after calories have been consumed, low energy levels, more time to recover from workouts and hormonal imbalances that cause fat gain around the midsection.

5. Do you need a personal trainer?

Sometimes it is hard to do everything right to get the results we want. It’s not uncommon to hire someone to help with all of the finer details of your program. A personal trainer can be there to help you work out correctly, hard enough and long enough. A trainer can also discuss goals and make suggestions to help you get there.

Losing some weight can raise self confidence and reduce risk of future chronic illness and injury. Lose weight in a safe way with a proper diet and exercise to ensure long lasting results and a healthy mind and body.
