There’s no denying it.. Losing weight is difficult. It requires a lot of commitment and hard work. According to a research 40% of women and 25% of men are constantly on a diet. The bad news is that only a few of these will succeed. However, there is one common factor which units those who succeed: they succeed who commit making permanent life style changes. Once you learn new ways of eating there is no going back to the old habits.
Why is it difficult to lose the last few pounds? Because the human body prefers not to be on a diet. Everyone has a steady state weight that the body tries to maintain.
What can you do about it?
1. Change up your workout routine
Increase the intensity. Instead of steady state runs or walks, do few sprints.
Or if you don’t want to do this, expand your workouts for 15-20 minutes.
2. Strength train at least twice per week
People with larger muscle mass burn more calories. Also the epoc (after workout consumption) is greater. Meaning you will burn more calories at rest.
3. Eat less
If the weight still stays the same, eat a bit less. For instance eat 250 calories less. This could be done by changing one snack into vegetables, such as carrots, broccoli, tomatoes or cabbage. These don’t have much calories to begin with if you eat them raw. However, don’t over do! Eating too few calories could back fire.
