Here are 5 things you might do wrong:
* You often change your diet.
Fad diets going every few days can be counterproductive and can actually cause you to gain a lot more pounds in the long run. Follow a specific diet for at least three months to see a result. If the diet rules out too many food groups, this may not be the best option. And if you do not notice any weight change after a few months, you can also go back to your previous diet.
* You're going on cheat days.
Cheat days are bad for your long-term weight loss efforts. It is not practical to eat in a short time. It can even ruin your diet and weight loss progress for the week.
* Your portion size is wrong.
Get a digital scale and measure the portions of food you eat. You can not recognize it, but you could eat several servings of even healthy foods that could cause you to accumulate the kilos.
* Your exercise routine lets you eat more.
Dieters often make the mistake of eating too much because they are heavily trained. You will probably overestimate the amount of calories you have burned. Plan your pre-workout and post-workout meals in advance to keep you tempted.
* You consume diet drinks.
Diet soda could actually cause you to gain weight. They contain artificial sweeteners that can increase your insulin levels and lower blood sugar levels, making you hungry and likely overeating.
