Are you one of the people that see weight loss as the ultimate chimera, the one thing that you want desperately but you never seem to achieve? When you read about it, weight loss seems to be quite simple. Following a diet regime, working out and staying away from junk food is supposed to do the trick but very often, such changes fail getting you there. |
You are probably unaware of the other factors that are contributing to your excess weight. The human body cannot be changed on the basis of a simple formula. Each organism reacts to change in a unique way. The fact that your neighbour managed to shed those pounds with a particular diet does not mean you will experience the same success.
You need to take additional factors in consideration, when trying to achieve a healthy weight. So, what is making you fat?
The liquid calories are one of the things that many people fail taking in consideration. It is not only food that is making you fat. Do you like carbonated drinks? These are full of sugar and they can contribute to your inability to lose weight.
Excessive reliance on diet foods and super foods may be another problem. If you think that healthy substitutes to everything will get you there, you are wrong. Learning to read labels is of utmost importance because some healthy foods are actually full of calories. Cereal bars, diet drinks and nuts are all healthy but when eaten in large amounts, they can contribute to being fat.
It is also important to know that exercise, even daily workout routines, can be ineffective. An exercise routine will help for weight loss solely when accompanied by diet changes. As difficult as it is to believe, the lack of sleep is another factor that is contributing to unhealthy weight.
A study was carried out by the scientists from the New York St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Obesity Research Center. According to the study’s findings, people who feel sleepy tend to consume approximately 300 more calories per day than the well-rested individuals. Your beauty sleep is getting a new meaning, right? Finally, stress contributes to weight gain. A hectic everyday routine will cause weight gain in several ways. Being busy often means you are skipping meals. Once you get to eat, you are so hungry that you consume larger quantities of food than the ones you require.
Chronic stress means that your body produces insulin and cortisol. As a result, you experience cravings and you may get engaged in comfort eating.
You need a balanced lifestyle, as well as a balanced diet. Getting enough sleep and relaxing from the stress at the office will be of uttermost importance for weight loss. Hypnotherapy is one of the most efficient ways to achieve the goals. You will learn the proper relaxation techniques and you will get to address issues leading to comfort eating and weight problems.
