Top 20 Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight


4. Your Hormones Are Going Berserk

Hormones play a very important role in a woman’s life. Hormones such as cortisol (released when you are stressed), ghrelin (hunger hormone), thyroid (hypothyroidism can lead to weight gain), insulin (too much insulin in the blood can lead to insulin resistance, weight gain, and diabetes), and leptin (too much leptin in the blood, and your brain is desensitized to food, and you keep eating) can wreak havoc on your health.

The worst part? Initially, you will not even understand that it’s your hormones that are making you eat so much or slowing your metabolism. Talk to a dietician or a physician and get your hormones checked. Follow their advice to balance your hormone levels.

If yes, there’s your answer for not losing weight. Cardio is great, but you should also incorporate weight training into your routine. Weight lifting will help keep your muscles active, boost your metabolism, and help you get a toned body.
