Share on facebook

Hello! My Tribe, Why Am I Not Losing Weight? Do you have this question then today will tell you about some common Weight Loss Mistakes If youve been trying to lose weight, youve probably started to eat less, exercise more, choose diet foods, avoid fat, or cut down calories. Maybe youve done all this and youre still not achieved your weight loss goal. Or youve had short-term results, but the weight keeps coming back and you feel stuck. To be able to lose the weight for good, its important to understand that both your dietary as well as lifestyle habits can really hinder your success, sometimes on a very subtle level. So, today Im going to tell you about ten common mistakes that are slowing down your weight loss progress. Your expectations are unrealistic Although we all know too well that losing weight takes a lot of time, every time we begin a diet we want to see the results almost immediately. Most people think that only after a week of dieting their body shape will noticeably change. Well, no such thing will happen, because of course, the weight that you have gained over months or years wont shed off in a week or a month. You are losing weight without realizing it Its very common

4 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight

Have you changed your diet but you are still not losing weight? Today I’m sharing the most common reasons I find that my clients are still not losing weight, even after adopting a real food diet. Reason #1 Why you are not losing weight: Your body is operating from an energy deficit. When there is a chronic energy deficit (fewer calories coming in than going out), over time the body starts thinking food is scarce. This results in the body holding on to fat as a way to protect itself. To make an analogy, think of your body like a house. If you’re not making enough money to pay your electricity bill, what do you do? Well, you turn down the heat in your house to compensate. The body operates in a similar way. When there are not enough calories coming in, the body saves energy by reducing body temperature (slowing the metabolism), turning down digestive juices (making digestion weaker), reducing the pulse, and slowing thyroid function (resulting in less energy). This is a built-in survival response by the body, to help you go longer on less food. This is often induced through calorie counting and dieting. Reason #2 Why you are not losing weight: You’re not healthy yet (your body A Continue reading >>

    Just done a quick Google and here are some comments i read....
    - There's nothing magical about ketosis and you will still gain if energy in exceeds energy out. Ketosis is not neccessary for fatloss and you shouldn't put coconut and other fat sources everywhere. Focus on more protein from meat/eggs/dairy + green veggies and don't add any fats other than some fishoil. You'll be getting enough fats from your protein sources and don't have to worry about ketosis.
    - Damn. Thanks Manimal- I feel like kind of an idiot now for not assuming this, but ketosis gets such cred on this board! I mean, if weight on ketosis still equals energy in and energy out, what's all the fuss about?
    - Ketosis means that your body is using mostly fat for fuel. IF you are eating less energy than you burn, then yay, it'll be mostly stored fat that your body uses, and you will shrink. But if you are eating more energy, then you will still be laying down fat faster than you burn it. The win in ketosis is that most people are a lot less hungry. It does not add up to fat loss by itself.
    - If I go to ketosis I will usually undereat without planning to, because my appetite just shrinks. But this might not be true for you. And coconut is not a magic free fat loss food. The fats in it are easy to digest and it's a good choice for promoting ketosis, but if you eat enough of it, you can still get fatter on it.
    - It is possible to gain weight in ketosis - calories still matter
    Thoughts?

    I think ketosis is part of the big picture, but not the only defining factor in weight loss.

    As you can tell reading this site alone, your mileage may vary
    Some people can eat as many calories as they like, others have to watch them.
    As with anything: everyone and everybody is different.

15 Common Mistakes People Make When Trying To Lose Weight

INDYLIFE 15 common mistakes people make when trying to lose weight Losing weight can seem very tough. Sometimes you feel like you’re doing everything right, yet still not getting results. You may actually be hindering your progress by following misguided or outdated advice. Here are 15 common mistakes people make when trying to lose weight. 1. Only focusing on the scale weight It’s very common to feel like you’re not losing weight fast enough, despite faithfully sticking to your diet. However, the number on the scale is only one measure of weight change. Weight is influenced by several things, including fluid fluctuations and how much food remains in your system. In fact, weight can fluctuate by up to 4 lbs (1.8 kg) over the course of a day, depending on how much food and liquid you’ve consumed. Also, increased estrogen levels and other hormonal changes in women can lead to greater water retention, which is reflected in scale weight (1). If the number on the scale isn’t moving, you may very well be losing fat mass but holding on to water. Fortunately, you can do several things to lose water weight. If you’ve been working out, you may be gaining muscle and losing fat. Wh Continue reading >>

    Let me start by saying that I’ve read the FAQ. Numerous times.
    I started Keto on August 12th, 2015 – I had previously been eating low carb for about a month, but hadn’t really been focused getting into full ketosis. I started off at around 215lbs.
    Initially I dropped down to around 205, with my lowest being 202. Since then I have jumped back up to 210 and can’t seem to shake it.
    My Keotstix are always Moderate or higher, I check myself a few times a day. It’s been almost a month in “ketosis” and I’m not dropping weight like I feel like should. I’m really frustrated. I don’t cheat, and I’ve been faithful to LCHF for going on a month now.
    On typical day here is what I eat:
    Breakfast:
    * A 20oz. heavy cream latte
    * A mozarella cheesestick or two
    Lunch:
    * Egg Scramble with just meat and cheese (bacon, chorizo, steak)
    Coffee Break:
    * A 20oz. heavy cream latte (sometimes)
    Dinner:
    * A Meat and fibrous green, the last 3 dinners I’ve had were:
    * Steak and Brussel Sprouts cooked in butter
    * Chicken Breast with Garlic Butter and Spinach cooked in butter
    * Steak with Broccoli cooked in butter
    Recently – I’ve not been super hungry, and have on occasion been skipping dinner altogether.
    My numbers look like this:
    * Net Carbs: < 20g / day
    * Fat: 70-150g / day
    * Protein: 60-11g / day
    On a typical day I’ll drink anywhere from 75-100oz of water to stay hydrated. I’m a programmer, so I spend most of my day at my desk, and I have a newborn, and unfortunately don’t have any time for exercise.
    I had been drinking Diet Coke for a while, and maybe a whiskey or three at night. I thought this might be the problem so for the last week I’ve cut out all alcohol and artificial sweeteners. It’s had no effect.
    I’m hoping some of you with more experience living with keto can give me some advice, I feel like I should at the very least losing some weight. It seems far too early for me to plateau. Do I just need to keep waiting? Everyone I know that’s done keto had almost instantaneous results?!? I’m just frustrated – I refuse to give up, but I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
    Please help. Thank you in advance.

    20 oz heavy cream latte = 2 shots + cream = 18 oz cream = 1800 calories plus another on a coffee break, I might be grateful you're not gaining weight. Reign in the calories, cut the crram, get a food scale and follow your macros
    Weight loss is not instantaneous. You don't get to spend years gaining it and then lose it overnight, it's a marathon not a sprint and you need to maintain a calories deficit

  3. doesnotvalidate

    Thanks for the reply!
    I had started with the heavy cream because a normal latte has so many carbs, and I was told it was a great way to up my fat intake.
    What are a good alternative? Drip coffee + half & half?

You're eating too little: eating too much food can cause you to gain weight, eating too little can also make it surprisingly difficult to shed those pounds. Your body has a natural instinct to protect itself so when it is not given an adequate amount of food it will automatically go into starvation mode, causing the metabolism to slow down and the body to hoard fat and calories. As a result of this it will become much more difficult for you to lose weight. You may be eating more than you think Keep a food diary for a week and write down everything you eat. You could be surprised! This will help you to cut out the extra calories you didn't realize you were consuming. You could be making bad food choices Read the labels carefully when you go shopping. Don't be fooled by the 'low fat' labels on products such as cheese. Cheese is always high fat. The same is true for most other products. Be aware of the calorie content of what you are eating. You're not sleeping enough. Sleep = repair. When your body gets enough rest, it's able to perform. Youre not

5 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight On Paleo

Are you just not losing the weight that you want on Paleo? It is possible to lose weight on paleo, but you have to adjust things a bit. You may be doing one (or more) of these 5 things… 1. You're Not Eating Enough (Good) Fat Fear of fat is still very prevalent in our society, but don't buy into it! Most people need a higher percentage of fat daily than you think, and this especially is true for those that are metabolically challenged and who have problems losing weight. Get a lot of good fats every day and DO NOT eat low fat processed foods. Have some real butter, ghee or coconut oil in your cooking. Take a swig of MCT oil in the morning for extra energy, and for goodness sakes, use olive oil or butter on your vegetables and real mayonnaise or salad dressings on your salads, not the stuff in the bottles. I am eating the most fat I ever have in my life (about 70-75% of my total calories daily) and I've never felt better in my life! 2. You're Eating Too Many “Sweets” Paleo desserts are amazing, and so much healthier than what we all used to eat! Even though they are made with healthy sweeteners such as grade B maple syrup and raw honey, they're still sweet and some people can t Continue reading >>

    @carol anne - you need to read up on low carb high fat diets - plenty of people on this forum are losing weight this way, and it's an excellent diet for diabetics, because it also helps reduce high blood glucose levels. It's carbohydrates not fat that are the problem, and skimmed milk is full of carbohydrates, so isn't appropriate for this type of diet.
    @Inkey-2008 :
    It's possible to in ketosis and not lose weight - it's not of itself a weight loss diet - you still do need to take care of total calories. I know because I'm currently in this same position!
    Check with one of the keto specific nutritional calculators, e.g. http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/DietMakeupCalc.php or http://www.ruled.me/keto-calculator/, and see how they compare with what MFP is telling you. Jenny Ruhl's mini book advertised on the phlaunt calculator page may also be helpful.
    Maybe ditch the milk too for lactose free or something like Alpro unsweetened almond milk, and check carefully for hidden sugars in the mayo and coleslaw if they're not homemade.
