Weight Loss Secrets - 5 Things That Will Sabotage Your Weight Loss

By Barb Taylor

Weight loss can be a difficult process. Even those who start a diet program and stick with it sometimes do not obtain the results they had hoped for. Listed below are five weight loss secrets that can help you avoid sabotaging your weight loss efforts.

Giving Yourself To Much Credit For The Number Of Calories Burned

Calorie expenditure tables are a common method used to calculate the number of calories burned while working out. Problem is that these tables are typically inaccurate.

Relying on these tables can be detrimental to your weight loss because they tend to significantly over estimate the number of calories burned during a workout.

The best way to accurately determine the number of calories you burn is to use a heart rate monitor.

Avoiding Strength Training

When developing an exercise plan for weight loss be sure to include both cardio and strength training. Lifting weights strengthens and tones muscles, which helps to increase your metabolism and burn fat.

So if you find that your weight loss has slowed or stopped completely. Add in strength training, alternating it with your other workouts. This should help to break through the plateau.

Regular Alcohol Consumption

Alcohol slows down your body's ability to burn fat. Instead of burning off food your body will first burn off the alcohol that you have consumed.

Not only does alcohol alter your bodys normal digestion process, it also stimulates hunger causing you to eat more.

In addition to slowing down your bodys ability to burn fat, alcohol is packed with calories and has absolutely no nutritional value.

Not Eating A Meal

Skipping meals is never a good idea. This is especially true when trying to lose weight.

When your body goes without food for long periods of time your metabolism begins to slow down.

When you skip meals and allow yourself to become hungry, chances are you will reach for an unhealthy snack to fill the void

To combat this, do the opposite. Eat 5 or 6 little meals each day to keep your body from becoming hungry. The key to making this work is not exceeding your total daily calorie count for all meals combined.

Unrealistic expectations

A lot of people are unsuccessful in their weight loss attempts because they have unrealistic expectations. They turn on the tv and see that there favorite celebrity just lost 30 pounds in a month and that becomes the goal they set for themselves.

Reality is healthy weight loss takes time. One to two pounds each week is considered a healthy amount of weight to lose.

Also people who lose between one and two pounds per week tend to have more success keeping it off.

These five simple weight loss secrets can be the key to starting your weight loss program off on the right foot.
