Check out what factors can slow down your results at losing fat.
Factors affecting fat loss are: sleep, nutrition content, activity level, hormones, and dedication.
Getting adequate sleep can have a huge effect on weight loss. Your body requires sleep for many reasons to prevent hormonal imbalances, lowered metabolism, food cravings, impaired cognitive function, and physical rest.
Eating the right foods help you lose weight. Eat more whole fruit and vegetables, high protein sources such as legumes, nuts, eggs, and meat. Avoid processed foods, sugary or baked foods, and fried foods.
Your activity level doesn’t just include exercise. Having a physical job or keeping moving during the day can really help burn calories. Try getting up and walking for few minutes every hour.
Hormones have a huge effect on weight management. Some hormones are specific to eating: leptin tells the body when it’s hungry. Ghrelin tells the body when it’s full. Insulin helps control blood sugar and break down glucose (carbs). Cortisol is a negative response hormone and can increase fat storage.
The hardest variable is personal dedication. It’s the people who take time in their day to eat right and keep active who have the most results. Don’t use the word “diet” because diets are temporary, lifestyles are permanent. Weight loss takes weeks, sometimes months, so have PATIENCE.
