You’ve tried everything; diets, calorie counting, fitness boot camps, and even those fitness apps. But you still aren’t seeing the results you want.

Now it’s time to ask yourself, “Could there be something else sabotaging my efforts to lose or maintain weight?”

In our day-to-day lives, there are tons of factors that affect our weight without us even knowing!

That is why, today, we want to shed some light on a few ways you may be stopping yourself from having consistent, long-lasting weight loss



Your diet 

Also known as fad diets, you may see quick results but they aren’t sustainable and could even cause long-term damage to your body.

Instead, implement small changes to your diet for more manageable and long-lasting effects.

Balancing your time 

Are you spending all your time in the gym and still seeing no progress? When it comes to losing weight, food intake is key! Exercise is good for long-term health but is only a small portion.

Take time to plan healthy meals and balance out your time in the kitchen and at the gym.



We know what you might be thinking, “How can I counteract my age?” It’s all about your metabolism. As you age, it slows and you burn fewer calories.

Try eating smaller portions of calorie-rich foods and upping your intake of lower-calorie foods.


Although these are some of the most common reasons that may be getting in the way of you and your goals there are many other factors that may not be as simple to resolve and require extra help from professionals.
