not losing weight?

Why am I not losing weight?

Have you found yourself asking this question after 6 months or 1 year of weight loss program? Maybe you have been dieting for a year now and you are probably also exercising, yet you don’t seem to be making any progress and you are worried. So you are now asking, why?

Some people actually loss the weight, maybe in their first 6 months but later gain it back. If you're troubled by this it is most likely that you have been digressing from you plan. You're not alone in this if you must know there are about 70% of the populations who suffer this problem.

First check out with your doctor to make sure you are not suffering type 2 diabetes mellitus. But it could also be that you are suffering the same problem every body out there who is trying to loss weight is suffering. They fail to seek expert advice. Or they have but are not adhering strictly to what was prescribed. The thing is that, we know fat binders work, but not every fat binder out there works as expected or promised. You can not afford to exercise just every now and then and expect that because you are on a diet, you should loss weight. It doesn’t just work that way. There has to be a well thought of diet plan as well as exercise plan.

Something I would suggest is maybe trying a particular kind of meal works for you, it makes sense to keep going with that food combined with fruits and vegetables. You can not keep trying different regimen forever; you need to stick to things that work. Use only tested diet plans.

If you have been using say, 1% milk that contains a very low amount of fat, then start using skim milk. You might want to incorporate lean protein like fish or chicken. You can also get good proteins from things like beans (some have more/better protein than others) or nuts.

Another secret is to stay away from snack bars. Don’t buy and don’t have it at home. Even if it belongs to someone else, the kid for example because, sometimes you will need a cooperative family to succeed in losing weight. The allure of these snacks is difficult to avoid sometimes. However, if you consider that you health’s worth more than a couple of snacks, it should serve as enough motivation for you to want to stay alive.

I am out lining some of these steps because I believe your problem is in either your wrong diet plan or lack of consistency-maybe ignorance too. So you should include some weight lifting exercises into your routine. This weight does not have to be heavy- Cardiovascular exercise is great and plays an important role in reaching your goal weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, however, once you stop the exercise you stop burning calories as well. With this you not just burn calories during exercises but continue even after the exercise.

healthy Diet for Weight Loss

What is the best diet plan?

Generally when we talk about a diet that is good for health, what quickly comes to mind is a balanced diet. But a weight loss diet shouldn’t have to be balanced but healthy. So a healthy diet is more desirable for a person looking to loss drop some pounds.

The best diet plan for weight loss consists of plenty of proteins, small amounts of carbohydrates and an insignificant amount of fat. Some people prefer to abstain from fatty foods entirely when trying to loss weight. It should also contain a rich amount of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients to ensure good health and vitality.

There is usually a conflict whether a balanced diet is good for people trying to loss weight or not. The thing is, balanced diet consists of every form of food and a significant amount in order to supply the body with all the needed nutrients. But some of these are harmful when taken in large quantities and so should be regulated especially in Heart disease patients, which bring us to the need to eat a healthy diet rather than a balanced one. A healthy diet considers your peculiar condition and so your meals are tailored just for you.

What then constitute a healthy Diet for Weight Loss?

It is easy to understand that any meal that can supply the body with its essential need with little or no negative effect on our lipid profile should be ideal. You need to keep cholesterol out of your foods.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES- Fruits and vegetables contain a very little, if any, amount of cholesterol. They are usually low in fat, calories and salt. These fruits are also very good and rich sources of anti-oxidants like vitamins A, C and E.


Grains all belong to this category and are mainly carbohydrate rich food sources and ideal as a source of energy when loosing weight. It is easier to burn off unlike fat. Many of them are rich in vitamins especially the B-vitamins. Examples include rice, cereals, corn, beans etc. The amount of cereals and others should not be too much and at the same time do not be over zealous about losing weight so that you do not create hypoglycemia for yourself-this is very important.


Many people think that because you are on diet so you shouldn’t eat the things you like anymore. This myth is held especially when it concerns diary products. That is not true because dieting has become more advance, with the availability of non fat milk, low sugar milk and ice cream. Foods in this group provide the body with high-quality protein and are our main sources of calcium. There are also the major sources of vitamin D, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B12, riboflavin, niacin and phosphorous and so we can not afford to avoid them due to the fact that we are trying to loss weight. Except we are on these products, then dietary supplements should be an essential part of our dieting.
