 3 Reasons You're Not Losing Weight

What could be going on?

Well what you think is "right" may actually be doing you more harm then good. It's not your fault. There's so much confusing information out there and a lot of that information is faulty, meaning it's not going to get you the fit and toned body you truly desire

So instead of giving in to the next fad diet try incorporating some of these diet tips into your program first and see what kind of awesome results you end up with

1. Avoid low calorie diets.

Eating less may seem like the way to go, but the truth is when you go too low on calories your body actually starts to store fat.

See when you don't eat enough, your body thinks you are starving and it does everything it can to conserve fat. It will burn muscle for fuel and slow your metabolism down before it will ever touch your fat stores.

Your body is not sure when you'll be eating again so it sure as heck isn't going to give up that precious fat of yours! That stuff could feed you for weeks.

So rather than focusing on eating less calories, focus on eating quality foods. Whole, nutrition, natural foods that will increase fat burning hormones.

2. Put the carbs down!

Americans it way too many carbs. All that extra sugar is just making us fatter, and the problem is you may think you're doing good, and not eating too many carbs, but I encourage you to spend a few days and add up how many carbs and sugars you are really eating.

Carbs are everywhere, especially if you're eating a lot of packaged and processed foods. I'm going to guess you may very well be surprised at how many places you find carbs!

Now some carbs are necessary but 4 or 5 in one sitting is just unnecessary and definitely going to slow down your weight loss.

I suggest getting no more than 150 grams of carbs per day. Ideally 75-150 grams for most people is optimal.

No this is not a low carb or no carb diet, just a healthier level of carbs that will optimize your fat loss and as an added bonus will even boost your energy levels!

3. Eat those fats.

Do you think you're being "good" by limiting fats? Well think again.

The necessary fats are needed by your body and actually boost fat burning hormones, keep you fuller longer, and have wonderful health benefits.

Additionally, fats can help you fight cravings. Yeah cravings for those carbs you need to cut back on!

So eat lots of healthy fats including coconut oil, olive oil, chia seeds, fish or fish oil, avocados, grass fed meats and eggs, grass fed butter, raw nuts and nut butters.

Just have a little bit at each meal.

So try one or all of these tips. See what happens. It can't hurt to try it right?
