5 reasons for not being able to lose weight!

I am sure you understand the importance of maintaining a healthy weight and probably the reason you are reading this article is because even though you are trying, you are just not being able to lose weight!

There can be many reasons for not being able to lose weight. Some you can control and some (your metabolic rate) you can't control. Let's look at the ones you can.

5 reasons why you can't lose weight

  • Family eating and exercise habits:
  • Some people come from homes in which parents provide meals that are excessive in Calories. Others are used to eating too much of sweets like soft drinks, ice creams or cakes! Still others don't get enough exercise because of easily available transportation, too few sports, modern conveniences, and sheer laziness.

  • Emotional factors
  • Some people use food as a comfort for feeling of frustration. Whenever they get upset, they just start eating. If you are one of them, then you've to realize that eating is not the solution to your problems. Instead of eating and getting more depressed, why not try to find a solution to your problems?

  • Uncontrolled snacking and nibbling
  • This habit can lead to the consumption of unwanted Calories. When such snacking is added to regular meals, it can mean more Calories taken in than the body is using, and thus more stored fat. Controlled nibbling is not damaging as long as the nibbling does not interfere with good nutrition and excesses are avoided.

  • Failure to cut down eating during reduced activity

  • When a person becomes less active with age or occupation, he requires fewer Calories to maintain his weight level. If, on the other hand, his food intake is not decreased but remains about the same, he puts on added weight.

  • Ignorance
  • Some people are frankly ignorant of caloric values of various foods. They tend to confuse the wide differences in the caloric content of favorite foods and drinks

    Whatever the reasons for not being able to lose weight, the basic problem is simple one of taking in more Calorie than are needed for one's total activity. If you take in too much Calorie, the excess will be stored as fat. Did you know 1 pound of fat = 3500 Calories?

    If you want to lose weight, you have to assume a personal responsibility for your weight problem. You can't blame it on family members, spouse, unmanageable children, lack of friends or troubles in general. Although these may affect you, in the end it is you who has been overfeeding yourself!

    Calculate your BMI to see if you are normal, overweight or obese.
