Having Trouble Losing The Weight?
Guys often think that something is wrong with them if they are not dropping the pounds despite their best efforts. Medications aside, there is nothing wrong with you, but you are obviously doing something wrong. Losing weight is a simple matter of taking in less calories than you burn. If you do this, you will lose weight. So let’s take a look at what you are doing wrong and how to correct it.
Not Tracking Calories
It is crucial that you start tracking calories because most people eat far more than they realize. If you are not losing weight, you are not on a calorie deficit, plain and simple. Pick up a free calorie tracker like Cronometer and start tracking.
Not Measuring Portions Correctly
This goes hand in hand with calorie tracking. Your tracking is only as accurate as your portion sizing. Unfortunately, because of fast food, we have a bad idea of what a real portion size is. Get a food scale and start tracking. Not forever, but at least a few weeks.
Not Eating Enough Protein
Protein is key if you want to build muscle. Muscle that will burn more calories. You should be getting roughly 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight. This protein will also help you feel full because it promotes satiety and this will help you stay on your fitness journey.
Losing weight is very simple. You take in less calories than you burn. If you are not losing weight, you are taking in more than you think, it is just that simple. Nothing is wrong with you but you are doing it wrong.
