Top 20 Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight


20. You Are Overtraining

Working out more will not lead to weight loss; it will lead to injury. Many people lift heavy weights right on their first day of training so that they burn the calories soon. But that’s not going to work. You need to workout according to your body’s stamina levels. You can increase the intensity and volume of the exercises as you start building more muscle power and strength. Overtraining can lead to loss of lean muscle mass, making you look “skinny fat”.

21. You Are On Medication That Hinders Weight Loss

You Are On Medication That Hinders Weight Loss

Many medications, such as antidepressants, neuroleptics, cortisone capsules, contraceptives, allergy medicines, and blood pressure medicines, can hinder your weight loss. Talk to your doctor about your weight loss goals so that he/she can prescribe an alternative. You should also let your dietician and trainer know that you are on certain medication. This will help them design your diet and workout plan accordingly.
