Avoiding the Weight Loss Mistakes (Next 3 Mistakes)

Mistake 4: You won’t loose weight the second you start eating healthier and exercising

If you start cutting down calories today don’t expect to see any results tomorrow. Mainly because the weight can fluctuate from day to day for reasons which have absolutely nothing to do with diet (one of them is weight retention). Hence you should only weigh yourself once a week and in the first month of changing the eating habits even only once a month. Of course, don’t forget to measure yourself because your weight may not change (or even may increase) but your body will change since fat will turn into muscle (if you exercise).

Mistake 5: It’s normal to make mistakes

No one is perfect; hence don’t expect that you’ll be perfect all the time. If you happen to overeat or to skip training, just don’t beat yourself. Start fresh the next day. No matter what happens remember that it’s hard to loose weight and it takes time but since you are watching what you are eating and you are exercising, you will reach your goals.

Mistake 6: Don’t eat less than 1200 calories a day

Many people assume that if you eat a lot less than usual, you’ll automatically loose weight. That’s not necessarily the truth. Each human needs a certain number of calories per day to burn for the normal activities. You can calculate your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate), which will tell you how many calories you are burning “idle”. This is a free site where you can calculate the BMR: http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/

Doctors recommend us not to eat less than 1200 calories because the body can go into “starvation mode” when it will store every calorie it gets. Hence, eating too few won’t result in weight loss.
