7 Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight

Lets be realistic…

It’s very frustrating to climb on the scale, weigh yourself and discovered that you re not losing weight, especially if you have been following a weight loss diet for quite a while or watching what you eat.

But you see, if you are trying to lose weight and the excess fat is not coming off or you are not seeing the result on the scale, there is a specific reason for it.

And in this post, I’ll give you the major reason why…

Are you Ready?

Let’s go…

1. Eating More Calories Than You Burn

Our bodies store up any extra calories and fats that we eat, if we do not burn them through vigorous movement and workout, those calories will continue to accumulate and cause weight gain.

There are also a group of people that don’t eat much, but they drink their calories. I am talking about individuals that drink coke, fanta, alcohol, malting, Hi malt, processed orange juice etc.

These drinks contain a lot of sugar too, and could contribute to your weight gain, even if you are eating small meals.

What to do:

  • Do not overeat (eat in smaller portions)
  • Stop eating late at night because the food will not properly digest before you sleep
  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat slowly and you’ll have a better chance of avoiding that over-stuffed feeling.
  • When at home, serve yourself a smaller portion and think about whether you really want a second helping.
  • Avoid the sugary drinks, take water instead.

2. Increase In Age

The older you get, the lower your metabolism becomes. Here’s why….

As you grow older, your body will naturally lose certain amount of muscles and become less active. Muscles are an efficient calorie burner, so loss of muscle mass means you are burning fewer calories.

If you’re eating and drinking the same amount as you always have and are less physically active, this can lead to weight gain.

What to do:

  • To reduce muscle loss, you should stay active and try to do muscle strengthening exercises.

3. Hormone Inducing Medication

There are some drugs and pills that can cause you to gain weight if you use them. A good example of this is the family planning pill and injection and steroids.

These medication can make you become big in size rapidly and contribute significantly to weight gain.

What to do:

  • Be extra careful about what you eat during your treatment course so you not have to eat more than you normally do.
  • If you’re worried about weight gain, talk to your doctor about it to help  you control your weight during your medications.
  • Make lifestyle changes so you are not always alone and depressed which causes unnecessary snacking.
  • Do not stop taking your drugs till the doctor tells you so

4. Stress & Depression

People respond many ways to stress. Some people may lose weight, while others may gain weight. Those who gain weight are those who may turn food into some sort of coping mechanism. Weight gain from depression can make you even more depressed, which can lead to further weight gain.

What to do:

  • If you know you’re an emotional eater, find other forms of distraction, such as exercise, keeping a hobby, being with understanding people or going for a walk.

5. Sleeping Too Late At Night

Research has shown that people who sleep less than seven hours a day may be more likely to gain weight than those who get nine hours of sleep or more. There seems to be a link with sleep-deprived people having reduced levels of leptin, the chemical that makes you feel full, and higher levels of ghrelin, the hunger-stimulating hormone. Feeling tired, may make you high-calorie snacks to keep your energy levels up throughout the day.

What to do:

  • If you have trouble sleeping, get advice from the hospital.
  • Get more sleep, sleep is central to good physical and mental health.

6. Diabetes

Weight gain is a common for diabetic patients who have take insulin to manage their diabetes. Insulin when ingested aids in controlling blood sugar level. When a diabetic eats a diet that matches their insulin dose, they add weight, which means they’re eating more than they need in order to prevent low blood sugar – also known as hypoglycaemia  from evolving.

What to do:

  • Stop excessive snacking which contributes to an excessive calorie intake and overall weight gain,
  • Becoming an “expert patient” by attending a diabetes education course for those with any type of diabetes to help make your diabetes manageable.

7. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

There is a sizeable number of women with PCOS living in Nigeria. It is not a common condition, so if you are hearing about PCOS for the first time, then don’t panic.

PCOS is a condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work. Symptoms can include irregular periods, trouble getting pregnant and weight gain.

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but it’s thought to be hormone-related, including too much insulin and testosterone.

Women with PCOS typically put on weight around their waist, and can sometimes find it difficult to lose the excess weight unlike other people.
