These 10 things Are Preventing You From Losing Weight

Here are 10 things that might be preventing you from losing weight:

  • Fast food — pizza, burgers, fries and the likes. Grabbing a quick bite with your friend every now and then is fine. Having your entire diet consist of them is not.
  • Soft drinks — soda, Coke and the various popular energy drinks need to go. Not only do they contain obscene amounts of sugar and unhealthy ingredients but drinking them when thirsty will just make you crave more and more liquids. You’re better off replacing them with good old tea or plain water
  • Junk foods and snacks — snacks and crisps need to go. You might think you’re in love. Life might seem unbearable without them. But, as with all ‘good’ things this one’s time has come.
  • Increased cortisol production — the more stressed you are, the hungrier you will feel.
  • Sugar cravings — chocolate and junk foods are known as comfort foods for a reason! Higher stress levels will make your cravings much worse
  • Stress decreases your motivation — being ‘too stressed out for this’ is one of the most popular go-to excuses
