Common Weight Loss Problems
women and men deal with day in day out
There are at least 6 common weight loss problems women and men will face when trying to lose weight. As you read this, no doubt you’ll recognize many of them as problems you’ve experienced before
1. Feeling hungry
How to fight food cravings can be the most challenging obstacle of dieting.The mistake many dieters make is that in an effort to find a good healthy daily calorie intake, they skip meals. It is particularly important not to skip breakfast when trying to lose weight as eating breakfast helps to kick-start the metabolism. By depriving yourself of the main meals it will leave you feeling hungry, therefore when you do eat, you will have larger portions and this means consuming, even more, calories than you would have you not skipped that meal.
2. Craving certain foods
We typically crave sweet foods out of boredom, stress, and hunger. If you have a sweet tooth and crave all the things you shouldn’t eat, as chocolate, crisps, and sweets on a daily basis it can be a hard pattern to break.
Calories found in these kinds of foods would require many hours of daily exercise to counteract so it is extremely unrealistic to assume you can consume a lot of calories every day and successfully burn them all off.
3. Eating out with friends and family
When we eat out in restaurants with our friends and family it is a very social occasion and a time to indulge ourselves, we rarely want to go for the healthiest option on the menu. You may eat out quite frequently if you are always on the go or if you just don’t enjoy cooking which makes sticking to a diet a lot more difficult.
4. Lack of Energy
When we diet we often experience a period of lethargy, particularly during the afternoon where perhaps we haven’t eaten much during the morning, this can make us feel drained and tired and then we are much more likely to reach for the biscuit tin for an energy boost instead of opting for a healthier snack
5. Hard to Fit in Exercise
Work hours are getting longer and if you have a family and other responsibilities, this leaves you with very little time to fit exercise into your weight loss exercise plan. Especially if you have a very stressful job and work long hours, the last thing many of us would want to do after a hard day is head to the gym.
6. Diet Plateaus
A diet plateau is when after following a low or reduced calorie diet for a few weeks you suddenly find that you stop losing weight and no matter what you do your weight stays the same. Diet plateaus can occur because you’ve reduced your calorie intake too much and the body literally thinks it is ‘starving’ so slows down the metabolism to conserve the fat or you are eating as many calories as you are burning off so you aren’t losing any more weight.
Fat Burners and Exercises
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a committed gym goer to shed the pounds.Whether you don’t enjoy going to the gym, don’t have the time or just don’t want to invest the money in a gym membership, there are alternative ways that you can burn fat and get in shape without even leaving the house. Here are some examples of the most effective fat burning exercises that you can do in your own time that will offer great weight loss results:
• High Knees
You perform the high-knees exercise by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and jumping off each foot, bringing the opposite knee to your chest in rapid succession. To make the move even more challenging, make a fist with each hand and reach it under your leg as it comes up, touching your fists together. This workout does require stamina so it’s worth pacing yourself so that you eventually build up to doing 50 repetitions.
• Forward Kick and Punch
The forward kick and punch is high-intensity works out that will kick-start the fat burning process. To perform this move, you should stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Then kick one foot forward at about waist level and punch with the opposite arm. Repeat on the other side. You should perform 20 repetitions.
• Mountain Climbers
Mountain climbers are excellent at toning the body while being strenuous enough to get the blood pumping. The higher your heart rate, the more fat you’ll burn. Simply get into push-up position and jump one foot forward, toward your hands. Then quickly switch positions by jumping that leg backwards and bringing the opposite leg forward. Perform 20 repetitions.
• Eight-Count Body Builders
Eight-count body builders require the use of the whole body, that not only builds muscle it also burns fat. Get into a lowered squat position; begin with your feet shoulder-width apart. Jump upward, reaching your arms overhead. Land on both feet and place your hands on the floor, jumping your feet back so that your body is in a push-up position. At the same time, jump with both feet to the sides so you widen your stance. Then jump them back together and do a push-up. To finish, jump your feet up toward your hands, stand and repeat. Work up to performing 15 repetitions.
