Behaviors That Sabotage Your Weight Loss Success

If you have been unsuccessful with your fat loss and weight loss, improve by making needed changes. If you do the same things over and over, you will get the same disappointing results.  Check out my short podcast:

Fat loss and weight loss management is a simple process---if you do it day in and day out. Its a process like any goal you are trying to reach. You don't reach your goals overnight. And, you didn't gain that weight overnight---it was a process too.

There are reasons why this country has an obesity epidemic. All of the reasons have to do with behavioral habits.

Here are 6 Behaviors that can Sabotage Your Fat Loss and Weight Loss Success:

1. Overeating

Control your hunger during the day so you don't overeat when you do eat. Do this by eating small meals every 3-4 hours to keep your energy and metabolism active. And, binge-eating is always looming....

The Mayo Clinic defines binge-eating disorder as follows:

"Binge-eating disorder is a serious eating disorder in which you frequently consume unusually large amounts of food. Almost everyone overeats on occasion, such as having seconds or thirds of a holiday meal. But for some people, overeating crosses the line to binge-eating disorder and it becomes a regular occurrence, shrouded in secrecy.

When you have binge-eating disorder, you may be deeply embarrassed about gorging and vow to stop. But you feel such a compulsion that you can't resist the urges and continue binge eating.

Although binge-eating disorder is the most common of all eating disorders, it's still not considered a distinct psychiatric condition. But if you have binge-eating disorder symptoms, treatment can help you."

2. Too little exercise

Regular strength training and interval cardio sessions are a must if you want to change your body. You also need an active lifestyle to keep you healthier and happier.

3. Sedentary lifestyle

So, if you have a "sit-down" job, I would recommend that you move more.

Research proves that when you sit, your fat-burning enzymes basically shut down....when you stand during the day, those fat-burning enzymes go to work for you!

Try to stand as much as you can during the day and take walking breaks and lunches to activate your fat-burning enzymes! Any activity is good to go along with your regular workouts. All movement burns calories.

4. Negative attitudes

Negativity affects every thing you do in life. Always look for the best in every situation and get rid of the "negative vampires" in your life. Hang with positive people. We all need all the help we can get.

5. Limiting behaviors

Are you sabotaging your fat loss and weight loss efforts? For example, if you are trying to break bad eating habits, why do you keep junk food and sugary foods in your kitchen pantry? If its there, you will eat it!

6. Following bad weight loss advice

You may need a personal trainer to help you visualize success and individualize your fat loss and nutrition program. Its hard to change your body all by your lonesome.

Whatever the reasons are for you being overweight, YOU can change your behavioral patterns that limit your success! You can start taking positive steps today to improve your health, burn fat and lose weight.
