Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight

Updated: Jul 16, 2022

Let’s imagine this hypothetical scenario.

You’ve just started a diet, but after two weeks, you no longer see any results… You have even started going to the gym.

You’ve started wondering what it might be that you are doing wrong.

You’ve been limiting yourself from certain foods and want to see some progress.

Now you feel desperate and want to quit.

Before that, you want to make a final check on the internet and find an answer to your “plateau.”

Lucky you, we might have it for you.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common mistakes that you might be making that prevent you from losing weight:

  1. Overeating

The most common reason for the scale to stay at the same place or even go up might be that you are overeating.

“But I’ve been on a diet the last two weeks; that’s impossible.”

This is a common trap that new beginners fall for.

Even though you started eating “healthier,” it doesn’t mean that you will lose weight.

The primary condition to lose weight is for you to be in a calorie deficit.

What this means is that you have to burn MORE calories than you consume.

Sure, you may have started making healthier food choices, but are you sure you are eating the right amount?

If the answer is no, you might be consuming more calories than you burn, which means you are NOT GOING TO LOSE WEIGHT.

2. Drinking too much Alcohol
