WHY AREN’T YOU LOSING WEIGHT? 5 BEHAVIORS THAT GET IN THE WAY

You skip breakfast.
Skipping breakfast is bad news for weight loss. You slow down your metabolism and tend to be hungrier and eat more later on.

You finish your kid’s meals.
Though you only have a few french fries or 1 or 2 chicken fingers,
eating your kids meal after yours, adds extra calories to your daily diet.

You eat out often.
When you eat out most nights of the week, you eat more calories than you normally would at home. At home your portions would be smaller and you
would not add as much fat while cooking your food.

You snack mindlessly.
Do not snack from the bag or box especially when sitting in front of the TV.
When you don’t focus on what you eat, your hand tends to go from the bag to your mouth without realizing how much you are eating. A snack in between meals or as a treat should be enjoyed.

You expect too lose too many pounds too soon.
After 2 or 3 weeks of dieting you feel like the scale has barely moved so you get frustrated and go on a binge. A healthy rate of weight loss is 1 to 2 pounds per week. If you really don’t feel like 1 or 2 pounds amounts to much, lift 2 pounds of butter the next time you go to the supermarket. You’ll realize how well you’re doing. Remember slow and steady wins the race.
