Why Can't I lose Weight???

Updated: May 16, 2021

Have you tried all the diets, all the supplements, exercise all the time and still cannot lose weight? You're not alone! It is very common. Weight loss isn't just as simple as eating less calories. Calories can contribute to weight gain and the inability to lose the weight but isn't necessarily the only reason why.

Keep reading below for some of the reasons why you may be holding on to the extra weight.

1. Calories -

The average man needs about 2500 calories a day. The average woman needs 2000 calories a day. If you constantly consume excess calories in a day without burning them off, you will gain weight. If you consume too little calories in a day, you will also gain weight as your body will hold onto the fat as your body will put itself into starvation mode.

2. Skipping Meals -

Skipping meals can cause your metabolism to slow down, and prevent you from losing the weight or actually make you gain weight.

3. Drinking Our Calories -

I we are all guilty of this one at some point. We might pay attention to the food we eat, but not always remember that the drinks that we are consuming have added calories and fat too. The best thing for you is to drink 80-90 percent water and herbal tea for the remainder.
