These all-too-common weight loss mistakes could be derailing your efforts. If any of these habits sound familiar, then take note! Dodge the weight loss bullet before it wounds your momentum.
1. You’re not tracking your food intake.
To fix any problem, you must find the source of the problem. In the case of losing weight, building awareness around what you’re actually eating will help you identify what and how much you are actually eating. When you are able to identify an issue in your eating habits, you can make changes to your routine. Late night snacking, for example, can hinder your efforts of losing weight more than you think. By eating late at night, we are not able to burn the calories we are eating. The solution to this issue is to have healthy snacks on hand for just such an occasion, if not eating something just feels impossible. Just remember, when you are tracking your food, be honest. Nothing is worse than lying to yourself. How will you know what to change if you’re not being honest? Accurate logging makes for great results.
