Despite working out regularly and sticking to a prescribed diet, many people struggle to lose weight. But instead of getting bogged down, take a deep breath and focus on what you may be doing wrong.

She went on to share a few reasons:

You are messing up too much during weekends

If you’re starving yourself over weekdays and depriving yourself of all the foods you love, you’ll probably end up messing with your weekend meals or just get frustrated and give up altogether, she mentioned.

You’re not well-prepared

Make sure you prep in advance. You can’t order food every day (even if it’s healthy), and expect to hit your nutrition goals

You’re obsessing over your weight

Rather notice how well your clothes fit, focus on your ability to do extended workouts, your relationship with food to measure actual progress, she recommended.

You are not moving enough

Pick up any form of physical activity, even if it is gentle walking. Try aiming for five-kilometre progressive walks and be generally active throughout the day, she mentioned.

You have imbalanced hormones

If your hormones are imbalanced, then excessive workouts can actually cause inflammation and wreck them even further.

“Get some basic blood work done including thyroid, fasting insulin for PCOS, and estrogen dominance,” she suggested.
