Can you lose weight successfully? Starve yourself or exercise? If you failed, do you know what are the reasons? Here are some common mistakes of weight loss plan. Hope they can help you to design a proper and effective weight loss plan!
(1) Only focus on calories
People who plan to lose weight will strictly control the daily calories they consume. However, some people misunderstand the concept. They will eat the same calorie snacks to replace their meals. They will consume more oil and sugar and get fat more easily. Except monitoring the intake of calories, we should have a balanced diet without eating junk food. Only healthy and balanced eating lifestyle can help you to lose weight!
(2) Diet management without exercising/Over-exercising without diet management
Some people only rely on exercising to lose weight without controlling the calories of daily diet. They not only do not lose weight, but also more likely to cause injuries due to over-exercising.
Some people only rely on managing diet to lose weight. They never exercise. They maybe lose weight in a short time. However, both fat and muscle are also reduced. This leads to slow down the basic metabolic rate and regain weight easily.
The dietitian recommends us to exercise at least three times a week and more than 30 minutes once. You can do some cardio exercises such as jogging with weight training to burn fat and gain muscle.
(3) Poor sleep quality
Sleep quality plays an important role in weight loss. Poor sleep quality may cause the declining of resting metabolic rate. Your body burns fewer calories during you are sleeping. Some studies revealed that short sleep duration may lead to obesity by 55% in adults. Poor sleep quality may also increase your appetite. Your body will create more ghrelin to make you always feel hungry.
