7 Weight Loss Mistakes You Have to Avoid 

Effective and healthy weight loss is a long-term process of good lifestyle habits, so if you are working out regularly but still aren’t seeing the evidence of your hard work, it’s likely that you are making one or more of the following common weight loss mistakes: 

1. You haven’t made a commitment. Long term weight loss takes time, effort, and commitment. Before you begin this journey, make sure you’re ready to make permanent lifestyle changes and that you’re doing them for the right reasons. 

2. You have no motivation. While a personal trainer can be very helpful in keeping you accountable, no one else can force you to lose weight. Before you begin a weight loss program, you have to find the burning drive that will help you stick to the plan, even when it gets challenging. 

3. You’ve started restricting foods. Did you know that 95% of all dieters will regain the weight they lose within one year? Enjoying healthier foods more regularly (such as vegetables, whole grains, and fruits), while indulging once in a while is a lot easier, more fun, and more effective in the long term.


4. You aren’t getting quality sleep. A good night’s sleep is our natural reset button. If you’re sleeping too late, or your sleep quality is low, it can become a vicious cycle that will sabotage your waistline and your health. 

5. You’re drinking alcohol. When you’re trying to lose weight, it may be best to skip out on alcohol for a while. Not only are alcoholic drinks high in calories, but they also affect your judgment when it comes to food choices, your sleep, as well as digestion.


6. You aren’t drinking enough water. Drinking boosts your metabolism, cleanses your body of waste and acts as an appetite suppressant. In addition to this, staying hydrated will stop your body from retaining water, leading you to drop those extra pounds of water weight. 

7. You haven’t addressed your medical issue. Did you know that certain hidden underlying medical conditions or medications can have some side effects on your weight? That’s why you should always have a health check with a doctor before embarking on a weight loss program.
