5 Reasons You Fail with Weight Loss

If YOU have failed with weight loss in the past, you should double check what you're eating! A fat loss diet plays a huge part in the success of your fat loss and weight loss efforts.


Don't confuse a fat loss diet with a quick weight loss diet. They are totally different animals. How different? Check this out:

a. A quick weight loss diet leaves you hungry and sometimes starving. You might lose weight in the beginning but you will have low energy, slowed metabolism, a weakened immune system and your body will begin to store fat (starvation mode).

Ultimately, you will regain more weight than you lost when you start to eat normally again (yo-yo effect). You don't want to live like that, right?


b. A fat loss diet will help you maintain your energy. You will never be hungry or starving because you will eat every 3-4 hours. The food items will be whole, natural and nutritious and help you burn fat.

You will eat enough to fuel your intense weight training and interval cardio workouts. Without these workouts, its impossible to build muscle mass and lean out your body.

If your basal metabolic rate is 1800 calories a day, 1000 calories of food intake is not enough food for you to function properly. Doing this will turn your body into a total wreck! Having a healthy body at a healthy weight and acceptable body fat percentage is the most important.

The only way to improve is to know where you went wrong (if that's the case). The truth behind your weight loss and subsequent weight gain can sometimes be painful.

If you want a healthy, lean body that will give you the best chance to live healthy for a long time, you need to know the reasons why your weight loss and fat loss efforts failed.

As a personal trainer, I have seen many reasons why people fail at weight loss and fat loss. Here are 5:

1. You MUST make a real commitment to change eating habits and exercise habits. A real commitment always includes willpower to succeed. That means you won't quit even if you lose some battles along the way. One bad day or bad week won't stop you---you will get back up and keep trying. Its also called perseverance.

If you have low self worth, it will affect everything you do, including your efforts to change your body and lose weight. Somehow, you must eat right and workout because you're worth it and its good for your health and lifestyle. This is a very positive behavior and will lead to permanent lifestyle changes.

2. If you are afraid to set goals for fear of not reaching those goals, then you will find some way to sabotage your efforts. For example, you set low goals or no goals and that's what you achieve---very little!

3. Don't try to burn fat and lose weight all by yourself. You need help to accomplish your body shrinking goals. That could be a trainer, a friend, a spouse or other family member. Research proves that those who have weight loss buddies are more likely to succeed.

4. Don't depend on a fat-burner supplement, powder or weight loss pill to change your body. Stop wasting your money!

5. If you experienced quick weight loss without exercise and without fat loss, that's not the type of shrinkage you want. In other words, you still have high body fat. You didn't build muscle. You lost muscle mass. The weight came back on with a vengeance when you started to eat again (and not starve yourself).

You can write down your own weight loss and weight gain adventures. It will be well worth your time. Ultimately, you will succeed if you learn from your failures and successes.
