Are you dieting and still not losing weight? There are many people who want to lose weight and for that, they practice many weight lose plans and dieting but the result comes zero. The most common question of people is, why they are not losing weight when they are on dieting? It is because some common diet mistakes tripping you up.
The truth is, even when you are ‘on a diet’, you may be eating a lot of more calories than you think. The reason is, you actually do not know what should you do while on a diet plan.
If you really want to lose weight, the first thing you need to do is stop dieting. Take a look up at those everyday habits that are responsible in gaining weight. You might not realize how much calories you are eating per day. An extra tablespoon of salad dressing can add 75-100 calories, an extra tablespoon of butter adds 102 calories and one ounce bag of chips with your sandwich adds 162 calories. Drinking alcohol or wine, eating while cooking and high calorie coffee drink are the few triggers that disrupt your weight loss plans.
It is clear that what foods you eat can affect your body. But when you eat can also have an effect. The timing of your meals and snacks affect your weight loss efforts. For losing weight, you need to eat at right time, eat only when hungry and try to eat low-carb diet. By adopting few lifestyle changes in your daily life you can easily lose weight.
Reduce unnecessary foods
Do not eat when you are not hungry. This is the first thing you should do while losing weight. Reduce the things that you eat unnecessarily just because they are tasty and easily available such as snacks, chips and fast foods. Dairy products are not bad for health but if you are munching a lot of cheese in the evening without being hungry, it can increase your weight. Eating lots of creams with desert just because it tastes good can affect your weight loss plans.
Right time for eating
It is very difficult to find out the right time of eating. Several studies shows that late lunch eaters (after 3:00 p.m.) lose weight quickly than early eaters. Eating too close to bed time raises your body temperature, increases blood sugar and prevents the release of melatonin. All these factors lead to poor sleep which can cause more cravings of snacks on next day. It is recommended to eat every 3 to 4 hours for better results. You should eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at right time regularly to maintain good health and weight.
About breakfast and other meals
What about the breakfast? Do you skip the breakfast to lose weight? Are you getting good results by doing this? Of course not, this is not a right way to lose weight. Studies found that who eat breakfast regularly reduce dietary fat intake and impulsive snacking. People who eat more calories at breakfast do not necessarily eat less during the day. The truth is that most people who eat fewer than three meals usually end up eating more calories during the course of the day.
Try get out of the habit of always eating something while you are sitting and relaxing. Try a glass of water, cup of tea and chew a piece of sugarless gum, if you want some snacks. So, it is recommended do not stop eating but eat the right meal at right time to lose weight quickly.
