It’s time to fig­ure out what’s wrong with your “healthy” habits and why they often make you grow in breadth by leaps and bounds.

how to lose weight


1. You exercise every day

If you are com­mit­ted to your train­ing, that’s good. But at the same time, you can’t over­do it with the gym, lift­ing weights, run­ning. This will not give you any health or ben­e­fit: the body will not get time to recov­er and rebuild, you can get injured, get very tired and get an uneven load.

No progress, no fun and no ben­e­fit.

2. You don’t eat all day to fill your belly later.

If you reg­u­lar­ly save calo­ries on the days when you have a feast or a feast for the whole world, noth­ing good will come of it. The fact is that this is the worst eat­ing habit that can be. If you pounce on food hun­gry, you overeat a lot and only get bet­ter.

Before you go to the feast, eat some veg­eta­bles or nuts. If you drink alco­hol, lim­it your­self to two drinks, so you don’t get drunk and don’t overeat.

3. You eat everything low fat

From all sides they scream that fat­ty food is harm­ful, fu-fu-fu, instant death. But at the same time, eat­ing only fat-free foods is a road to nowhere, because fats not only help you absorb vit­a­mins, but also keep you feel­ing full longer. There­fore, it is rec­om­mend­ed to con­sume more healthy fats: avo­ca­do, olive oil, fish, but­ter, coconut oil.

4. You sleep too much

Very sad, but good sleep can be too much. Sleep depri­va­tion has been linked to weight gain, but too much sleep not only makes you feel worse, it also con­tributes to weight gain.

Try to sleep from six to sev­en hours a day, and then every­thing will be in per­fect order.

5. You don’t eat the yolk

Pro­tein omelettes are won­der­ful and very, very tasty, very healthy. But at the same time, if you fun­da­men­tal­ly do not eat the yolk with­out med­ical indi­ca­tions for this, you are miss­ing out on a source of vit­a­min D and choline.

6. You only do one type of exercise.

Exer­cis­ing only one mus­cle group is not only bor­ing, but also stu­pid, because the body devel­ops dis­pro­por­tion­ate­ly. Some mus­cles become stronger, while oth­ers remain the same as they were before.

food habits


7. You eat before exercise

No need to eat before and after train­ing. Enough to eat after a work­out to restore some ener­gy. If you are very hun­gry before train­ing, eat some nuts to refresh your­self.

8. You eat too much protein.

Pro­tein can be ben­e­fi­cial on a diet and help build your body, but it can also cause sig­nif­i­cant weight prob­lems. If you eat more pro­tein than your body needs, it will be stored as fat and excess amino acids will be excret­ed. No sense — just extra fat.

Check with your doc­tor how much pro­tein you need per day, and con­sume pro­tein based on this num­ber.

9. You don’t eat dessert.

In an effort to lose weight, you avoid desserts and do your­self a dis­ser­vice. First, if you used to enjoy eat­ing sweets, you will be in a bad mood because of the restric­tions. Sec­ond­ly, you run the risk of break­ing loose and eat­ing sweets on a bad day. Third­ly, you lose car­bo­hy­drates and nutri­ents!

10. Your exercises are only yoga.

If you’re only doing yoga or stretch­ing, it won’t do you any good. Much bet­ter for the fig­ure are com­plex exer­cis­es.

11. You switched from sugar to non-natural sweeteners.

Do you want to stop con­sum­ing sug­ar? Nev­er buy prod­ucts with sweet­en­ers. This is the same sug­ar, but even more harm­ful. For exam­ple, for your intestines. Many arti­fi­cial sweet­en­ers release insulin, which increas­es the risk of dia­betes. In addi­tion, palm oil, which is added to “sug­ar-free” prod­ucts, accu­mu­lates addi­tion­al fat.

12. You drink smoothies after a hard workout.

If you had a mind-blow­ing work­out that left you sweaty, it’s a bad mis­take to fill up on a pro­tein shake or smooth­ie. It is bet­ter to just drink water, so you will restore the water bal­ance.

13. You eat “healthy” snacks too often.

All these bars in bright pack­ages, promis­ing you to lose weight or beck­on­ing with “sug­ar free” inscrip­tions, are just mar­ket­ing. It is bet­ter to make snacks with Greek yogurt, dried fruits, nuts.

14. You wake up in the morning to exercise

Wak­ing up to go run­ning at five in the morn­ing and then drag­ging your­self to work is the worst idea you can think of. You will always be tired, and fatigue forces us to overeat.

how to eat right


15. You skip meals

If you skip meals, you will not get enough car­bo­hy­drates and pro­teins, and there­fore you will not be able to enjoy and enjoy life. It is bet­ter to eat a bal­anced meal than to go hun­gry all day and then overeat.

16. You filled a full plate with healthy food.

Just because your food is healthy does­n’t mean you can overeat. Even the health­i­est foods can play tricks on you if you overeat and have stom­ach pain.

17. You eat gluten-free food.

If you have gluten intol­er­ance, then this is a dif­fer­ent mat­ter, you will have to leave your favorite good­ies aside so as not to suf­fer from the stom­ach. But if you run after fash­ion and, hav­ing no rea­son, refuse gluten food, you can gain weight due to an unbal­anced diet.

18. You stopped eating milk

Just like that. If you are lac­tose intol­er­ant, choose lac­tose-free prod­ucts and enjoy life. But if you thought­less­ly got rid of dairy prod­ucts in the body, you risk los­ing your health.

19. You only buy “organic” and “natural”

“Organ­ic” and “nat­ur­al” are not always healthy. In addi­tion, very often man­u­fac­tur­ers sin: they spank these stick­ers on every­thing. Read our arti­cle on green­wash­ing to learn more.

20. You order only the healthiest-looking dish.

First, peo­ple go to restau­rants to enjoy the food and the envi­ron­ment. And sec­ond­ly, buy your­self that burg­er, since you already came!

21. You refused coffee

If you refused cof­fee for objec­tive rea­sons, it’s okay. It is bet­ter to refuse a cup of fra­grant espres­so if anx­i­ety and sleep prob­lems appear after it. But if you just switched to decaf­feinat­ed cof­fee, you bet­ter not. It caus­es weight gain, overeat­ing.
