Losing weight is one of the hardest things a person can do in their life. First, you need to correct your diet, then you need to exercise much more than you’re probably used to, and you need to do this for at least 6 months to see any real results.
Sounds tough, right? It is. But if you keep up the good work, you’ll eventually see the results you’ve been waiting for.
And while you will see results after hard work, there are common pitfalls that affect everyone’s results or lackthereof.
So if you want to avoid serious issues and see maximum results, here are some things to avoid:
Overeating After Working Out
You just burned off all of those calories so you can lose fat. Why would you come home and stuff your face and put all of those calories back in?
It doesn’t make much sense, but after working out hard, many people become starved animals.
You should eat something, but make it a healthy, smallish meal so that you don’t put all those calories back that you just burned off.
Stick to clean, healthy food for a post-workout meal, such as chicken, beef, veggies, and rice. Something like that would work wonders.
Using Fake Sugar Products
Using fake sugar has been proven to INCREASE your appetite in clinical studies, and this hurts you because you’ll still feel hungry even after you would normally stop eating.
This leads to overeating, and an excessive intake of calories. If you must use sugar, use real cane sugar instead.
But your best bet to lose weight is to avoid most sugar products altogether, even fruits that are high in sugar like apples. Apples are super healthy for you, but if you eat too many of them, even the real sugar inside of them will cause you to retain fat!
Using Too Much Salt
Like fake sugar, using too much salt can make you much thirstier, making you feel like you’re hungry when you’re actually quite full.
Next time you feel hungry and haven’t had anything to drink that day or not much, try drinking a full glass of water.
There’s a great chance that your hunger will subside after about 20-30 minutes because you didn’t have enough fluids in you.
This is a problem that occurs with most people, because they are chronically dehydrated. This leads to eating more than they should, and gaining tons of weight.
So if you avoid these 3 huge pitfalls, you’ll be able to lose weight much faster than if you stuck with these poor habits.
