Are you training hard and eating healthy but still can’t see results??
Trust me I have been there too and I know how frustrating it can be to feel like you are doing everything right, but no matter what you do there is no shift in your weight or body composition. Its ok take a deep breath and refrain from throwing in the towel just yet. If you are not seeing results, then chances are you are missing something somewhere along the line. Fat loss can be a complex thing. It doesn’t always happen as easily as we would like it too. But that is because there are so many factors that play a role in helping your body lose fat. You are not smarter than your body, believe it or not, your body knows exactly what is going on. The last thing it wants to do is lose fat because it wants to stay in its “happy place” in balance with plenty of food and minimal exercise. But there are a few things you can do ensure you keep your progress in check.
So you start on a weight loss journey and at the beginning, you are making significant progress. But at some point, your progress begins to stall or even come to complete stop. That weight that initially started to fall off now feels like it’s holding on for dear life. You feel like you are doing absolutely everything right, and you can’t figure it out.
However, if you want to keep the number on the scale moving along a little longer then here are some things that may help you bust through that plateau.
Overeating is something that is easily overlooked and in many cases socially accepted, particularly in the fitness industry. Notions such as cheat meal days are often celebrated and bragged about, yet what those individuals do not realise is that they are in a vicious restriction and binge eating cycle.
Think back to a time where you were absolutely full to explosion, was it at Christmas lunch or birthday dinner with the family, or was it you, by yourself in your kitchen after a tough day at work? Either way, how did you feel about it? Did you feel ok but just a little sick from too much food? Or did you feel completely guilty about what just happened?
