Why Can't I Lose Weight



Why can’t I lose weight is one of the most frequently asked questions I get asked by anyone struggling to shed a few pounds. All too often that person looks to external influences or reasons out of their control as the answer to their problem.


But it’s very rare indeed that a person can’t lose weight because of anything outside of their control.  There are some medications that will make the job much harder which have side effects of weight gain such as steroids or some types of contraceptive pill. Also a number of medical conditions can make it hard to lose weight such as an under active thyroid or polycystic ovaries to name just a couple.


But unfortunately the sad truth is that the real answer to ‘why can’t I lose weight’ usually lies with the person themselves. Mostly this is because they simply aren’t doing the right things.


Many people try to lose weight by dieting, or doing more activity or going to the gym.


But very rarely do they combine all of these things together at the same time.


It’s actually very easy to lose weight if you do just a bit of each of these things altogether.


For example you could reduce the amount of alcohol you drink, cut down on desserts or only eat out or have take away’s once a week.


At the same time as making these small changes to your diet, you could start walking more. Walking to work or going out at lunch time for a quick stroll... anything which helps you to get more active and burn off more calories.


Lastly you could join a gym or start doing some workouts at home. Training your muscles will lead to a boost in your metabolic rate, which means you’ll burn more calories even at rest. Doing this a couple of times a week will really kick start your metabolism.


Combining all these things together at the same time is the real answer.


One final point, if your diet contains regular helpings of sugar throughout the day, you can exercise until you’re blue in the face and you’ll never burn any fat, you physically can’t. Because every time you eat high sugar foods, you’re body produces insulin to take the sugars from the blood.


When insulin is produced, the release of the hormone Glucagon is stopped. Glucagon is responsible for taking fat from our body to use as energy. So when you eat sugar, you physically can't burn fat.


So the next time you’re wondering ‘why can’t I lose weight,’ the answer is probably much simpler than you think. Look at the things you’re doing. Do some research, learn what you need to do, don’t simply be guided by things you’ve heard from other people or the messages that diet companies put out. Learn the ‘facts’ and you’ll go on to succeed.
