This is a question millions of people ask each year and it is time you get the answer you want and need. It isn’t because people are lazy, addicted to food or don’t exercise properly. There are many factors into why people fail at losing weight. The following are just a few reasons why many fail at losing weight:
Attempting to lose weight for the wrong reasons. Don’t just lose weight to look great, you want to lose weight for the health aspect of things. Thousands of studies have been completed showing and proving that losing body fat improves and lengthens a person’s life. Looking better can be beneficial to a person’s self esteem, but a person should lose weight for their well being and health.
Inability to commit to permanent lifestyle changes. One downfall for many is that dieting becomes a burden to their lifestyles, and feel that it is something that is going to be only temporary. Dieting is something that will continue forever, just on different levels of severity. Diets can seem demanding to some, which is the main cause of people giving up. You must prepare yourself for a brand new lifestyle for a higher chance of success with your weight loss dieting attempts. If you want an increased chance of losing weight long term, gradually incorporate lifestyle changes to ensure they stick better.
False information provided preventing a healthier weight loss. Conflicting information provided by the many resources and fad diets lead millions down the wrong path every year. It makes it much more understandable as to why many fail on their diets when they are constantly being provided with false information. Instead of continuously being provided with false information, it is recommended to discuss your weight loss wants with a doctor or dietician.
Lack of knowledge of the bodies fat intake. The majority of people do not realize that they are actually consistently putting on body fat and losing body fat. There is no down time when it comes to not putting on body fat, meaning there is no down time to maintaining a healthy diet. If you are determined to lose weight and keep it off, you need to be able to dedicate yourself to consistently maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle.*If you are not implementing positive lifestyle changes and losing weight, you are gaining weight. Again, there is no “in-between.”
Blind to what is being consumed daily. The majority of people don’t take any notice to what they are actually consuming on a daily basis. Many overweight people consume an excessive amount of unneeded calories each day without realizing that they are doing it. Unless you keep an eye on what you are consuming then your likelihood of losing weight and keeping it off is going to drastically decrease.
