Are you frustrated you are not losing weight?
You are eating healthy. You are getting in your necessary step count. Yet, still not seeing progress.
The truth is eating healthy and losing weight does not always add up.
1. There’s a lot of foods that are necessarily healthy for you but don’t promote weight loss. You could be just not even enough of the right foods or enough food at all. And there is such thing as too much of a good thing, such as eating too much fat. There are a lot of good for you fats you should eat, but if weight loss is your goal, than keep fat intake to 1-2 tablespoons per day.
I like LifeSum app from Google Play or Apple Store to help determine how much you should be eating.

2. Too much stress leads to belly fat and resistance to weight loss. A lot of times, we try to do it all and take care of everything. What ends up happening is you are taking care of everyone but yourself. If you have high stress,take inventory of your stress levels and find ways to reduce stress like walking, reading, yoga or meditation. And maybe start saying no more often, too.
3. If you are not getting enough sleep, your body will hold onto fat. Most people who have too much on their plate, try to skimp on sleep to create more time, but it ends up backfiring if done long-term. Sleep is the time your body uses to reset and recharge. If you are not getting enough sleep, it can throw off your hormones, make you crave not so healthy foods and make you irritable. Make sure to set a reasonable bedtime and wake up times, allowing you an adequate 7-9 hours of sleep.
Four years ago, I was where you are. I just had a baby and I thought I WAS eating healthy. But my energy was tanked and the weight wasn’t going anywhere. Read more about me here.
If you all of those are in check – then it is time to step it up a notch and start getting results. My Simplified Slim Down is perfect for the person that is eating healthy, but ready to fine tune some things to get even better results.
