As such as there tons of what you should do when on a diet or trying to some loose weight, there are some things that seem harmless and just fine that most people trying to loose weight often do, which could eventually make you frustrated and not loose any weight at all.
It may sound like the wisest thing to do since you are on a weight loss journry. However, trying to push off meals, especially breakfasts to “save” calories for later will backfire, leading to overeating later in the day. Stick to a schedule of properly spaced meals and snacks to avoid spiking and crashing energy levels.
Always eating out
Meals prepared away from home have more sodium, fat and calories than what you make at home, where you can control the ingredients to suit your weight loss plan. So start cooking more and soon, you’ll be trading your old pants for slimmer ones!
A little preparation will go a long way. Avoid impulse shopping and eating whatever is on your craving list for the day. Take the time to prepare a simple weekly meal plan and shopping list. This will not only save you some obey, but also help ensure that your meals are in line with your weight loss goal.
Forgetting to set exercise
Setting realistic exercise goals (and sticking to them) is just as important as committing to changing your diet. Regular exercise will not only help burn calories but also promote increased lean body mass, which will also benefit your metabolism.
Being too hard on yourself
Sometimes the best way to stay on track is to deviate from your plan. Trying to completely avoid higher-calorie foods that you love can leave you bitter and frustrated — there’s nothing healthy about that! Allow yourself the occasional indulgence so that you maintain a healthy relationship with food.
