Breaking Barriers: 7 Reasons Why You Won't Achieve Your Weight Loss Goals


Are you tired of making the same promises? Illness to experience frustration, followed by lack of motivation and finally complete abandonment. Tired of each new year being the "year" you are in in the end to meet your weight loss and fitness goals? Maybe the problem was never that you lacked motivation or that you didn't work hard enough in the gym. Maybe it's because there's something (or maybe a combination of them) that is holding you back.

Achieving your weight loss and fitness goals doesn't just depend on how hard you sweat at the gym. Or about how diligent and disciplined you are in the kitchen. It is about identifying barriers to success and drawing up an effective plan to tackle them. But it can be impossible if we fail to perceive obstacles to our success. In this post, we look at some of the things that can stop you from achieving your weight loss and fitness goals, and what you can do to achieve them. So you can achieve your goals once and for all, no more frustrations or excuses!

You're stressed all the time

We all know that regular exercise is one of the best forms of exercise to relieve stress there is. Exercise floods your brain with adrenaline, endorphins and dopamine. This cocktail of natural "feel good" chemicals is the reason why you leave the gym refreshed and rejuvenated. However, although we all experience some stress at some time or another, experiencing it regularly is called chronic stress, which can have all sorts of adverse effects on your health.

Our bodies are pre-programmed to act in a certain way when we are stressed. Our body does not know whether it is lurking in a tiger with a sword and is late for work. As such, your brain produces the stress hormone cortisol under stress. This lets your body know that you are in a dangerous situation and that it needs to store energy as fat. Your blood sugar drops and as a result you crave fatty, sugary and salty foods. Combine this with a mid-range lounge vending machine and it can be a devastating combination.

Try to find positive ways to relieve stress mindfulness meditation. And keep your desk drawer with healthy snacks so you won’t be tempted by vending machine products.

Wear on your gym prevents your movements

The right range of motion is extremely important for all your strength exercises. Too many people accumulate weight and do their exercises with an incomplete range of motion. At best, they waste time, and at worst, they can develop bad habits that can lead to incorrect techniques and an increased risk of injury.

In addition to being careful when lifting weights so that you don't sacrifice technique for more weight, you also need to make sure that your gym clothing allows you to enjoy all your exercise. This may mean that you need to look new sportswear. However, the benefits you can expect outweigh this modest investment. If you wear the same clothes for the gym that you would wear to decorate your living room, there is a good chance that you will not achieve the right range of movement during training. Or you can (and feel) as cool in the gym as you deserve.

You only think about calories

Is it important to monitor your calorie intake as you try to lose fat, build lean muscle and get in great shape? Absolutely! Are Calories The Most Important Weight Loss And After All? Not at all! In fact, counting calories alone can be frustrating and frustrating, as all your hard work and perseverance seem to pay off.

Calories from different food sources and groups of macronutrients affect our bodies in different ways. For example, an egg and a jar of Coca Cola technically have the same number of calories. But while one is full of protein, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin B12 and essential minerals such as zinc, copper and iron, the other is full of sugar. This means that the latter is all empty calories that have no real nutritional value.

Therefore, you should closely monitor your macronutrient intake and how many calories you consume. This will help you determine how much of your diet is made up of carbohydrates, how much protein and how much fat. I like the app My Fitness Pal helps you monitor your macronutrients more closely. A target of 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 30% fat is a good template for fat loss.

You are not eating enough protein

Many of us seem to have a complicated relationship with protein. We both assume that it is the only macronutrient worth owning and consuming too much of it (sorry Dr. Atkins) or we consume too little. But the protein is important component weight loss. It helps us build lean muscle mass, thereby speeding up your metabolism and ensuring that your body consumes more calories, whether you exercise or not. It also helps to stabilize your hunger hormones, ensuring that your appetite is controlled.

It is fairly easy for omnivores to easily access protein sources. However, even ovo-lactose vegetarians can access all the necessary proteins through eggs. However, vegans can struggle to get enough protein while maintaining a good balance of macronutrients, as many common protein sources, such as beans, peas, chickpeas, etc., are also sources of carbohydrates. Therefore, it is important to make sure that you invest in good vegan protein chips to help ensure that your macros stay in balance. Don't let anyone tell you that you have to compromise your beliefs to achieve your goals!

You are unknowingly consuming hidden sugars

On each shelf of the supermarket, you will see a large number of processed foods that look (and are marketed) as healthy foods. However, a closer look at the label of the ingredients reveals a number of unknown chemicals, artificial flavors, preservatives and a lot of hidden sugars. Even staples such as sauces, spreads, breads and breakfast cereals can be packed full of hidden sugars.

A healthy food diet that avoids processed foods and ready meals is a good way to avoid hidden sugars and better control your calorie and macronutrient intake. What's more, it encourages you to cook again. Loving cooking is a habit we must all get into if we want to reduce our over-dependence on expensive food and heavily processed ready meals.

You focus too much on the heart and forget the difficulties

Cardiovascular training is a fantastic way to burn fat. However, this does not mean that it should be the only component of your training regimen. You should also include strength training in your treatment regimen. Many women are reluctant to lift weights because they are worried that it will damage their femininity. However, you can be sure that regular weight training does not necessarily make you bigger or bigger. It can make you easier and more toned, thanks to a more efficient metabolism.

You are bored

Finally, diversity is the spice of life. And if it's lacking in your workouts, you may find that you're browsing through your workout mode, even without breaking a sweat. Going easy for yourself only causes more frustration. You should try to shake things at least once every three months.
