Do You Really Suffer from the Inability to Lose Weight?
The inability to lose weight can be nothing short of maddening. Is it possible that no matter what you do, you just can't lose weight?
There are some medical reasons, such as thyroid problems, that sometimes occur and make it difficult, if not practically impossible, to lose weight.
However, before you assume that you can't lose weight, it might be a good idea to consider a variety of different and often overlooked issues that could be impacting your weight loss goals.
In this article, we will endeavor to address some of the obstacles that could be holding you back from weight loss.
Tricky Products and Misleading Labels are Not Your Friend
The weight loss industry is nothing short of gigantic. This means that there are a lot of people invested in making sure that you don't lose weight, but instead struggle to lose weight on a permanent basis.
Your inability to lose weight may have something to do with consuming the wrong kinds of foods- even foods that are recommended by the industry! Studies are showing that many weight loss foods may actually work to make it harder to lose weight, and this is a fact you need to keep in mind when dieting.
Tricky labels are another enemy of the dieter. You've probably already noticed the problems with food labeling, for example, who eats 1.3 or 1.4 servings? The answer to this question is “no one,” of course. But these and other tricks often mean that you end up eating more calories than you believe you are consuming.
Not Enough Physical Activity Will Add the Pounds
In last few decades, the average person's life has become increasing sedentary. Studies have shown that a sedentary lifestyle can decrease one's lifespan.
Further, it should be noted that a perceived inability to lose weight can be tied, at least in part, to a lack of physical activity. More and more jobs are now desk oriented, where in past generations they involved physical labor.
A byproduct of this fact is that it is now up to the individual to get the necessary amount of exercise to combat weight gain.
A Combination of Factors Contribute to Weight Gain
Usually there are many factors that contribute to weight gain. Food choices and consuming too much processed foods and fast foods have become two prime reasons for the obesity epidemic.
The good news is that by switching to whole foods, you can give your body the nutrition it needs and take a step in the direction of weight loss.
