Real cases why you are still not loosing weight

Did you do everything right and still see no results? There is a variety of reasons why does it happen, we had listed the most common ones.

1 I train twice a day, but my weight does not change

Possible explanation:

- If you incorporate intense training your weight can even increase: muscles are much heavier than fat. Pay attention not so much to weight as to your body composition

- It is also possible that you are overeating and do not evaluate your macro right. When we lose calories during the training we naturally want to eat more. It also seems that you can now afford much more, but if your goal is to lose weight, you can’t do without calorie counting. No calorie deficit – no weight loss.

2. I only eat fruit and drink vegetable smoothies, but don’t lose any weight

Possible explanation:

- Fruit is a source of fast carbohydrates that raise blood insulin levels. Insulin is an anabolic hormone that promotes the accumulation of glycogen and fats and at the same time blocks their use. Insulin also increases hunger, so we feel hungry more often, we increase portions or eat almost continuously.
- The macro content of a smoothie sometimes exceeds complete meals. And the amount of sugar there is most often appropriate – yes, natural, but it’s still fast carbohydrates.
- Such restrictions may lead to the lack of proteins and again may increase appetite

3 I have some much to do that barely had any time to sleep at all. And still I’m not losing weight

Possible explanation:
- Sleep is a basic human need. During sleep, the nervous, endocrine and immune systems scan and subtle balance the body
- Many hormones are produced at night according with the change of day and night. Among them are melatonin and growth hormone. The peak of their secretion occurs from 22 to 2 hours. They allow us to literally lose weight in a sleep.
- The less we sleep – the more we eat, although we don’t notice that. Try to write down your meals on different days, and then compare and you will see for yourself.
- Lastly when we do not have enough sleep then our level of stress hormone cortisol rises and blocks the weight loss

4 I had dropped 20 kg already, but the last 2 kg do not give up. Why is that and what to do?

Possible explanation:
-The more fat you have, the easier it goes away. It is much easier to lose 30 kg from 130 kg than 2 kg from 55 kg
- With weight loss so-called “plateau” period is inevitable, just be consistent and continue your journey. If the weight stands still for a long time (more than 2 months), it is not recommended to further reduce the calorie content of the diet.
