The Biggest Mistakes People Make

In my last e-mail to you, I shared the five fat-burning foods you can easily integrate into your diet.

In today’s e-mail, I am going to share five of the biggest mistakes people make when they try to lose weight. I am sure a lot of these will make sense to you, so lets get to it!

Mistake #1: Skipping Meals

When most people set out to lose weight, they think that by purposefully skipping meals, it will help them lose weight faster. The funny part about this logic is that the exact opposite is true. If you skip too many meals too often, your body will go into starvation mode, and when that happens, no matter what you eat after you break the fast, it will be converted to fat. Do everything you can to never miss eating a meal!

Mistake #2: Only Eating Carbohydrates For A Meal

As hinted throughout this e-mail course, when you only eat carbs for a meal, you spike your blood sugar, which spikes insulin, and when insulin is spiked, it causes your body to go into storage mode. If you do this too often, you will gain a ton of weight very fast. Make sure that each meal you eat consists of a good balance of proteins, carbs and fats to ensure that this insulin spike and blood sugar crash doesn’t happen!

Mistake #3: Not Allowing Your Body To Recover After Workouts

If you don’t let your body rest a couple days between workouts, you can suffer from what is called over-training. When this happens your time in the gym actually works against you, and your body doesn’t respond the way you want to in regards to losing fat and building muscle. Be sure to give your body at least two days rest between your workouts to ensure a proper recovery time!

Mistake #4: Drinking Too Many Calories

Whatever you do, do everything you can to limit the amount of calories you consume to the foods you eat. When you drink calories (sugary drinks, etc.) your body doesn’t gain any benefit from them, and only helps you pack on more weight. If you are thirsty and need something to drink, I recommend that you choose water with lemon. It is the perfect beverage for you and doesn’t have any calories!

Mistake #5: Not Enough Sleep

Make sure that you focus on getting your sleep. According to WebMD, “When you miss out on sleep, your leptin levels go down, which make you not feel as satiated after you eat, and your ghrelin levels rise, which means your appetite is stimulated so you want more food.” To help you get enough sleep and lose weight, do everything you can to go to bed around the same time every night so you can get your body into an easy rhythm during the week!

There you have it!
