Major Reasons Why You're Struggling To Lose Weight No Matter How Hard You Try

By TemulunPublished 2 months ago 5 min read

There are so many different diet programs out there promising big results. But no matter how much research you do or which program you choose, it seems like they all have the same disappointing ending: You can’t lose weight no matter how hard you try. We all know that calories are a measure of energy in food, and we also know that fat has more than double the calories per gram of protein or carbohydrates. We also know that fats, oils, and sweets are high in calories so we need to cut back on them. That’s pretty much everything there is to know about losing weight… right? There are so many reasons why you might be struggling to lose weight no matter how hard you try—but hopefully this article will give you some answers, motivation and help you see past any roadblocks so that you can find success sooner rather than later!

You’re Not Eating Enough Healthy Foods

If you’re not eating enough healthy foods, you’re not giving your body enough nutrients to build and repair itself. Your body needs vitamins and minerals to help it function properly, and if you’re not getting enough of them, you might find it hard to lose weight. Try to focus more on fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds and lean proteins such as beans, fish, and eggs. These will help to promote a healthy metabolism and give your body everything it needs to lose weight and stay healthy. You can also try meal planning. Rather than having no idea what to make for dinner, you can plan out your meals for the week and make sure you’re getting everything your body needs. There are lots of free resources online where you can find meal plans and healthy recipes that are quick and easy to make.

You’re Constantly Snacking

If you’re constantly snacking, you’re not giving your body enough time to digest the food you’ve eaten before eating more. This can not only make you feel full and bloated, but it can also make it harder for your body to burn fat. Try to only eat three times a day, with a couple of snacks in between if your body needs them. You should also be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day with a little lemon squeezed in for flavour. Water helps to flush out toxins and can help you to feel less bloated and less hungry. If you find that you’re constantly hungry, try to figure out why. Are you not getting enough nutrients? Are you eating too quickly and not letting food digest properly? Or are you eating too much sugar, caffeine, or alcohol which can make you feel hungry and thirsty? Once you know the reason, you can try to rectify it.

You Haven’t Changed Your Habits

If you’re trying to lose weight, the first step is to change your habits. You have to do things differently if you want to see different results. This means eating less (or healthier) and exercising more. But many people fail to make lasting changes, and this is where many people fail when trying to lose weight. You have to stick with it. You also have to be careful not to fall into a trap of feeling bad about yourself or beating yourself up when progress is slow. Try to keep in mind that not everyone loses weight at the same rate, and that is okay. You just need to keep going, and you will get there in the end. You don’t have to be a perfectionist about this.

You Haven’t Registered What Is and Isn’t Healthy for You

Do you have a certain food you just can’t give up? Maybe you love sweets and feel like you can’t live without them, or perhaps you can’t go a day without peanut butter. You might think that as long as you burn off the calories during exercise, these don’t matter. But they do matter. You might also find that you’re not eating enough food. When you’re dieting, it can be easy to forget to eat enough. But you need to make sure you are eating enough calories. If you don’t eat enough calories, your body will start to break down your muscles to make up for the deficit, and this can make it harder to lose weight.


You Have a Health Condition That Makes Weight Loss Harder

Are you struggling to lose weight? Or do you have a health condition that makes losing weight harder? Perhaps you have high blood pressure, diabetes, or are overweight. Or perhaps you’re pregnant? If you have a health condition that makes weight loss harder, you have to be extra careful not to restrict yourself too much. You need to make sure that you’re eating enough to keep yourself healthy. You also need to make sure that you’re not dieting too harshly or cutting out too many foods. If you’re not careful, you can put your health at risk.

Your Diet Isn’t Well-rounded and Has Little Variety

Are you eating a diet that is not well-rounded and has little variety? This can be a big reason why you’re struggling to lose weight. If you’re not eating a balanced diet, you’re not giving your body everything it needs. If you’re eating an all-or-nothing diet, you’re definitely going to struggle to lose weight. You have to eat healthy foods 90% of the time. You can’t cut out certain foods completely. If you’re eating a poor diet, it can also make you feel tired, moody, and have low energy. This can make it harder to exercise and make healthy changes in your life. If you’re struggling with what to eat and what to avoid, try to find foods that are filling but low in calories. This means you can eat more of them. Beans and rice are a great example of high-fibre foods that are low in calories but very filling.


All of these reasons can contribute to you struggling to lose weight. The key is to find the reason you’re struggling and then do something about it. You can’t just keep going with a bad diet and expect to see results. You need to push yourself to make changes and be determined to succeed. Once you find the right strategy for you, you can be sure that you’ll be able to lose weight no matter how hard you try.
