Top 20 Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight


14. You Skip A Meal To Cut Down Calories

Skipping a meal to cut down on calories never works. When you skip a meal, your brain slows down. This, in turn, slows down your metabolism and digestion. Moreover, you will eat more during the next meal because you will be starving and feel it’s alright to eat more as you have skipped a meal. The body, however, stores the extra food in the form of fat. Eat every 3-4 hours, control your portion size, and do not skip breakfast.

15. Eating Too Frequently

Eating Too Frequently

Some people have the habit of eating too frequently, which ultimately leads to weight gain. In fact, even if you eat healthy and go for regular workouts in the gym, eating too frequently will create a positive energy balance. This will lead to weight gain. As mentioned earlier, you should eat every 3-4 hours and not every hour. Drink water if you feel hungry. Quite often, we tend to feel hungry when we are thirsty.
