Good day mates. So, you’ve been working out and the results seem to be minimal. What’s the deal? Well, there are many factors to consider when looking at weight loss and fitness. I am going to share with you some of the things I’ve researched, seen in my own life, and shared with my at work Biggest Loser Contestants.
First things first. Calories in=calories out. If we eat more than our body burns, then we will gain weight. There are some other factors involved that we will discuss today.
Some reasons why you may not be losing weight or seeing results.
1. You haven’t been at it long enough. Most people want instant results or drive through results. We step on the scale and say, “Yes, I’d like to lose 10 pounds by tomorrow, thanks.” Reality is that it takes 3,500 calories spent to lose 1 pound. If you cut 500 calories a day through diet and exercise then you lose about 1 pound a week. 1 to 2 pounds a week is healthy as the slower it comes off, the slower it comes back on. So, keep up the good work and give yourself a few months, not a few days or weeks to see drastic changes.
8. You are type-A or super stressed (stress causes weight gain and it lands on your belly). Stress is killer. Take time to relax.
