THE THREE REASONS THAT MAY BE KEEPING YOU FROM REACHING YOUR BODY GOAL!
It's so frustrating when the pounds cling to you like a codependent boyfriend, no matter how hard you try!
SO WHY CAN'T YOU SHRINK YOUR POOCH?
HERE ARE 3 LITTLE KNOWN REASONS YOU MAY BE STUCK.... AND THEY MAY OR MAY NOT SURPRISE YOU!
YOU SKIMP ON PROTEIN
Protein enhances the feeling of satiety and prevents from losing muscle as you lose fat. Your body expends more energy to metabolize protein than carbs or fat. So a little more protein can help burn more calories and help lose the fat.
YOU SIT AT A DESK TOO LONG
Devoted workouts simply can't compensate for being deskbound the rest of the day. Sitting for just a few hours causes your body to stop making a fat-inhibiting enzyme called LIPASE.
Getting up and moving for just 5 minutes every hour will help prevent your body from going there and keep those calories burning.
YOU'RE A STRESS CASE
Stress absolutely can stall your slim-down. Even worst, excessive stress causes fat to be stored around your belly, where weight is harder to lose.
Luckily, you can "whittle your middle" if you practice healthy habits that can reduce your stress, like regular exercise, meditation, mindful eating, balanced nutritious meals with fiber, healthy fat & protein, and social support.
WHAT TO DO NOW
Start releasing the stubborn pounds by 1) increasing your protein 2) moving more throughout your day 3) stressing less and be accountable for your actions and then say, "get lost" to those pounds that seem to be stuck!
