You decide to lose a few pounds. Eating less, living healthier, but in one way or another it just does not work out. Do you have no idea how that is? You may be doing too little.

1. Not enough Food

Did you eat much less? Those who suddenly eat very little, put his body in the ‘low-energy mode’. In the short term you lose weight, but your body becomes very economical with the available energy. If you then just eat again, you will immediately gain a lot. This creates the familiar yo-yo effect. The chance that you ultimately weight more than when you started losing weight is great. Losing weight is a matter of continuing to eat, but in a smart and healthy way.

2. Drink too little

There are people who think that drinking a few liters of water a day contributes to rapid weight loss. But that is a fable . Of course you have to drink enough. Some people confuse a feeling of hunger with thirst. By drinking enough you have a ‘fuller’ feeling and you will not be able to grab a snack or snack. It is of course important to drink water or tea instead of high-calorie drinks such as soft drinks, wine or beer.

3. Too little Sleep

Various scientific studies have shown it: too little sleep and restless nights indirectly contribute to weight gain. A sleep deprivation disrupts the high metabolism boosting hormones , with the result that you have more appetite during the day.

4. Too little Fat

Many people who try to lose weight stop taking fat. But a lean diet from which all fats have disappeared is not healthy. Your body needs good fats to make certain vitamins and hormones. Saturated fats , or ‘bad’ fats from biscuits, for example, can be missed, but good unsaturated fats from fish, avocados and nuts help you stay healthy.

5. Not Enough Exercise

The more you move, the better. That daily sports helps with weight loss is no news. Even half an hour of walking is already very good. When you start exercising, you often become heavier at first. Muscle tissue is in fact heavier than fat. Therefore, do not focus too much on the scale and your weight, but measure your waist circumference and waist circumference . It is possible that you become smaller, while you weigh the same or more.
