Why You’re NOT Losing Fat 😩

If losing fat is your goal, and you seem to be stuck... check out these 9 common culprits.
.⠀
While we know that creating a calorie deficit is THE key factor for fat loss, other variables can indirectly influence whether or not that deficit is created.
.⠀
Below are a list of the most common reasons why you might be hindering your progress 👇

1️⃣ Get more Sleep! Getting 7-9hrs is crucial for health and optimal functioning.

2️⃣Eat more fiber, it helps you 💩 and is imperative for digestion and nutrient absorption.

3️⃣ Stay Hydrated! When you’re dehydrated your body retains water and it under performs.

4️⃣ Fat has 9 calories per gram! Making it the most calorie dense macronutrient. Olive oil has 120 calories per tablespoon!

5️⃣ Protein is the most satiating macronutrient and it also slightly boosts your metabolism because of its high thermic effect!

6️⃣ Yes, doing too much cardio can be counterproductive to your progress. For most people, you’re better off prioritizing resistance training and limiting cardio to 2-4x per week.

7️⃣ Nuts, coconut oil, and dried fruit are nutritious but are high in calories! So watch your portions.

8️⃣ Are you tracking properly? Be accurate with your calculations.

9️⃣ Eating highly processed carbs spikes insulin and thus blood sugar. Eat more complex carbs like potatoes, beans, veggies and legumes. It will keep your blood sugar consistent and prevent spikes of hunger.
