Top 10 problems why people fail at weight loss

The vicious cycle of gaining and losing weight is not just a simple thing to understand. A person who is taking up extra pounds is susceptible to developing many other physical, emotional and personal issue because obesity is not a trait that is socially acceptable in the majority of the cultures.

Being obese means you have been through many conditions and have been influenced by numerous factors that have contributed to making you obese. Understanding and knowing all the contributing factors is the key to finding out the right solution to lose extra pounds that you have put up on your body.

Despite the fact, people can find multiple, proven solutions to help anyone lose weight easily with elevated promises of seeing results in weeks, most people fail to lose weight. Yes, that is true!

It is important to note that most of us motivated to lose weight and turning as slim as we used to be in the past, but we never get to know how and in how much time we have gained that weight.

For example, if you have put up 20 extra pounds on your body in five years and now you are looking to find a super 5-day solution that will be able to get to the slim figure again, isn’t that insane to expect that speedy results?

This is one of the basic causes that usually ends up failing at weight loss. There are many other problems that may lead people to fail frequently while making struggles to lose weight which are:

  1. Unrealistic expectations

When people try to lose weight with a higher expectation of losing fats in a few days, they may lose patience when they don’t see such results in real. Such a situation leads to disappointment and they may not feel interested in following the weight loss plan further and that results in a failed plan.

  1. People fail because they only focus on one factor

Considering that high-calorie intake or fat intake causes weight gain and ignoring all other emotionally, and physiological factors contributing to weight gain lead people to fail at weight loss. Because if you only focus on food consistencies and don’t consider checking in for health issues and emotional factors you cannot attain the weight loss goals in anyways.

  1. Binge eating lifestyle

When people have binge eating habits their food craving doesn’t let them control their diet plan and that results in a failed weight loss plan.

  1. Going without knowing

When people are unaware of the things like proper ingredient combinations and proper food selection to help lose weight, they might end up with health issues and may not reach their weight loss goal at all.

  1. Too many restrictions on daily diet

One of the many problems is that when people get on to too restrictive diet, they lose their optimal metabolic rate in the body and may feel exhausted hence ending up in quitting the weight loss diet. (Newsmax)

  1. Skipping meals in a row

Another reason is that people think they can lose weight by skipping meals consistently which is totally wrong. Skipping meals in a row can actually lead to weight gain as you will have to confront the imbalanced nutrition when you eat abruptly after a long break.

  1. Impossible weight loss goals

Setting up weight loss goals in an unrealistic way and with higher expectations may lead to sure disappointment and quitting the weight loss plan within a few days leading to a total failure of the plan.

  1. Insufficient nourishment

Imbalanced nourishment, non-supportive ingredients in the diet may also lead to the failure of the weight loss plan. As when you don’t intake proper amount of needed ingredients your body loses important components and lead people to develop health issue that in turn increases weight. (eatright.org)

  1. Quick shifts between the weight loss diet

Emotional imbalances may lead to quick shifts between the diet plans and that lead to bodily issues and may not help in losing weight resulting in failure in weight loss struggles.

  1. Medical conditions and medications

Some people may fail, not because they are following the wrong path rather they might have certain medical conditions that may inhibit weight loss or burning of extra fat like having problems in thyroid function, extreme stress, adrenal dysfunction etc. Medications like steroids may also lead to weight gain instead of weight loss.

Health benefits of Juicing

Juicing for weight loss has many perks which are not hidden from any of us. We know they bring the daily calories way down low as compared to other kinds of weight loss diet. But one may not just start drinking veg and fruit juices without having some ground knowledge. A person on a weight loss diet has to know about things to consider best in a juicing diet plan and others that could lead to health issues in the long run.

We can say that there are numerous health benefits of juicing as a diet for weight loss if it is done the right way. Doing it the right way means, you have to choose the right proportion of organic vegetables, organic fruits and pair them according to their nutritional values for a balanced intake of juices your body needs.

Vegetable and fruits juices offer a great source of available vitamins and minerals in an easy to digest form. As a fact there is no fiber in the juice, the ingredients are absorbed quickly giving your body an instant boost.

Fresh juices help to detox and cleanse the digestive system and blood as well through decreased calories and increased water content and other nutrients in them.

Now the question is, should you choose to juice organic fruits including Apples and citrus fruits or vegetables including leafy greens or what? Should there be a mixture of veg and fruit juices, or should you switch between the two periodically? Most people are skeptical about taking veg and fruit juices together or they either go for one to stay safe from bodily issues.

This concern should be solved first because taking fruit juices as a base and adding leafy greens is safe if you keep the fruit content to the 1 part level only. The reason is that if you increase the intake of fruit juices as a part of your weight loss juicing diet plan, the sugar content would be higher and may not prove to be a helpful addition in your weight loss plan.

Intake of vegetables and especially the leafy green would be the best if you want to improve the cleansing effect through vegetable juicing. Fruit juices are good in combination with it to make it more palatable, but should not exceed the 1 part quantity to avoid excessive sugar intake.

Many proponents of juicing support the fact that the best time to drink the juice for weight loss is to get it early in the morning with an empty stomach. The reason behind it is that the stomach has a craving for food and you intake fresh juice with the nutrients a body needs, it efficiently absorbs the whole juice and takes in the nutrients very well. (Greatist)

Though some people prefer taking juices before eating, maybe 30 minutes or more before their meal, but for the best results always go for the fresh intake in the morning with an empty stomach.  Doing this does not only nourishes your body but also give you a feeling of fullness so you will be less hungry when its time to eat breakfast.

Most of the juicing dietary plans for weight loss include apples, celery, carrots, lime, cabbage, cucumber spinach, ginger, mint, parsley and beet juices with a tint of blueberries, pineapple and strawberries in them.

For better results and desired outcome with the help of juicing diet plan, one must follow a defined pattern, intake balanced ingredients consisting of organic fruits and organic vegetables and take it regularly first thing in the morning. And don’t forget to weigh the sugar content  coming from the fruit juices.
