Why Has Your Weight Loss Stopped?
Why has your weight loss stopped? Well, here are some of the Top 10 Common Reasons.
Should I skip breakfast to lose weight?
Some people decide to skip breakfast, and that is not recommended in Slim R Us. It is highly recommended having something to eat as it kickstarts your metabolism. Raising our overnight fasting blood sugars by including a cereal with some Fibre, to increase energy and sustain you.
Snacking aimlessly without thinking.
Walking past the fridge, and taking a chunk of cheese as you stand at the fridge, preparing meals or watching TV. It can be done so easily. You think, a little piece of cheese won’t do any harm to your weight loss, but it is the frequency and how thick the slice is each time that makes the difference. Making smart choices, controlling snacking, and you will soon stop asking yourself Why Has Your Weight Loss Stopped?
Are you stuck with your weight loss?
It is possible you are relying on so-called healthy or breakfast bars. Many people resort to eating ‘light bars’ because they are promoted as light and healthy, but they usually contain as much sugar and fats as regular bars, plus lots of additives to make up for what they’ve had to remove to qualify them as light.
Check your Portion Sizes
The success of Slim R Us for over 10 years is largely due to the promotion of Portion Controlling. It is the key to all our years of successful weight loss. Half our plates are always full of vegetables.
A Healthy Balanced Diet
Do you deprive yourself of certain foods, for example, many diets will ask you to cut out certain foods? That feeling of not being able to have something, feeling deprived of your favourite food or treat can eventually lead to you throwing in the towel. A healthy, balanced diet should include all the major food groups, such as protein, carbohydrates and vegetables. This is particularly true to maintain a healthy digestive system and avoid nasty symptoms associated with conditions such as IBS.
High Fat Take-Away Foods
Another reason why your weight loss might have stalled is because you are having too many take away foods. When you question Why Has Your Weight Loss Stopped, look no further than the speed dial on the phone! Is your local take-away on it? Do not get confused. Remember a treat is only a treat when it is a treat, beyond that, it is a habit. You have no control over food that is not cooked by yourself.
Not all healthy snacks are best for weight loss.
Another reason why your weight loss may have stopped is because sometimes you over snack on healthy foods. Snacking on nuts, avocados or coconut are very healthy, but unfortunately, their high fat content can affect the rate of your weight loss.
Will I lose more weight if I eat less?
Another reason why your weight may have stalled is because you’re not actually eating enough during the day, and this usually leads to hunger, pangs and uncontrolled nibbling in the evening. Are you doing long fasts and skipping meals? Do you sit and watch TV and about an hour after your dinner, are wondering what you can eat next? This can be the result of not eating enough during the day?
Do you suffer from Sleep Apnoea?
Did you know that weight issues can lead to restless nights? When you get up tired in the morning after not having a refreshing night’s sleep, because you have tossed and turned all night? Do you snore or jolt awake gasping for air? Restless nights lead to poor choices of food during the day, and so the cycle of Why Has Your Weight Loss Stopped continues.
Why do I feel guilty after eating?
One of the main reasons why you can stop losing weight is because you have gone on the guilt trip! What causes that? Why is it that when we have one bar or one bag of crisps, suddenly we lose control of ourselves, and it leads to further snacking? We get exasperated with our efforts to lose weight, and this treat leads to more and more. We end up back at the start, questioning Why Has Your Weight Loss Stopped! Ditch the guilt! Plan your treats, but if you have over-indulged, it is not the end of the world. Get back to basics and start afresh!
