5 reason that why you don’t lose weight fast.
You started the diet, the weeks go by and you don’t lose weight fast, it may be for these 5 reasons that you are not achieving the expected results.
1. You are consuming a lot of processed foods
Have you checked the label of the products you are consuming? if they have unpronounceable ingredients or you see the word preservatives you should start eliminating them from your diet.
This type of food with hydrogenated fats, flavorings, high in sugar, emulsifiers, and preservatives, are more difficult to burn and also generate addiction to the consumption of more food.
The researchers tested two groups of people, the group that ate ultra-processed foods gained an additional 500 calories per day on average.
So, start checking the packaging and the food you eat, so you can gradually limit those that have a higher degree of industrial processing.
2. You’re not getting enough protein
The vegetables that provide us with even more protein than meat are the following:
Lentils, which boiled give us about 17.86 grams of protein per cup.
Although they are not technically a vegetable, they are in the legume group.
Chickpeas give us 14.53 grams per cup.
These have a subtle nutty flavor that works well in a variety of dishes.
The Beans. These provide us with 12.92 grams of protein per cup.
Try adding these nutritious legumes to stews and salads or turning them into a tasty sauce.
Green peas provide about 8.58 grams of protein per cup.
They are very versatile to prepare and can be a delicious addition to many recipes.
Dry-roasted almonds provide us with 8.14 grams of protein per cup.
They are delicious and nutritious and a great source of protein, healthy fats, vitamin E, and antioxidants.
One secret is that you’ll get the most nutrients by eating almonds with the skin intact.
Potatoes, which when baked with skin provide 4.55 grams for a medium potato.
Although potatoes get a bad rap for dieters, the reality is that they are packed with protein, vitamins C and B-6.
Try red or russet potatoes for a bigger protein boost, you’ll get extra benefits if you eat the skin.
Broccoli, which provides 4.28 grams per 1 boiled stem.
This cute little tree has fiber, vitamins K and C, and more. It is advisable to wash it and cook it in boiling water for no more than 10 minutes.
Another plus that broccoli has is that it lowers cholesterol and helps burn abdominal fat.
3. You are not consuming enough water
Start measuring how much water you are consuming daily, since consuming it can help you lose weight since drinking water increases the number of calories that are burned.
According to specialists, the results were more impressive when drinking cold water, since the body uses additional calories to heat the water to body temperature.
Also, water has no calories, which means that if you change other drinks for water, you will lose weight.
4. You are doing little or no exercise
we must also include a simple exercise plan that allows us to gain some muscle, lose body fat and improve physical fitness.
We can achieve this by spending 30 to 45 minutes 3 or 4 times a week.
The quintessential exercise to lose weight without having to go to the gym is running.
You can start walking 20 minutes a day and within this interval do small jogs. until you manage to sustain a continuous jog for a longer time and in a short time you will be running.
5. You are sleeping little
Sleeping less than 6 hours a day not only keeps you tired but also makes your weight gain.
People who sleep less than five hours a night are almost a third more likely to gain weight (30 pounds oover16 years) than those who sleep seven hours a night.
Ask yourself the following questions:
how many hours do I sleep daily?
How much water am I consuming, 1 liter or less?
Am I exercising at least 3 times a week?
What could I start doing to include these actions in my day-to-day life?
I invite you to start operating these small changes and within 30 days check the results you are seeing.
Then after 60 days, ask yourself the same questions again, and you will see that if you have maintained these habits during this period, you will be achieving the results you want.
