Why don’t you try to prevent weight gain instead of trying to lose extra pounds?
Not enough sleep
If you do not sleep enough you may gain weight without even knowing. One of the simplest ways to stay slim is just to sleep enough. Research of Case Western Reserve University tracked sleeping habits of 68 000 women for period of 16 years. Women who slept 5 hours or less weight more than those sleeping 7 hours or more. The key here are the hormones. Less sleep means less leptin in the body and more ghrelin. Ghrelin makes us eat more and feel hungry more often.
Not enough water
Water is essential for human body and keeps it healthy – skin, nails, brain, digestive system – everything in our body is strongly connected with the amount of water we consume. So if you do not drink enough water your body dehydrates and this reflect on your figure. There is not right formula for the amount of water you should drink. It depends on your gender, height, physical condition and many other factors. But when you feel thirst this is sign that you are dehydrated.
Can You See Dark Side of FAST Weight Loss?
Too much shopping
Most of the people buy too much food. When you go shopping you better make a list with the things you really need and do not buy nothing more. Try to stay close to grocery section and away from sweet things and candies. If you have “temptations” at home you will definitely eat them. So let them stay in the market!
Too many liquid calories
Liquid calories are very “mean”. If you think that if you drink something you cannot gain weight so think again. Soft drinks, alcohol and most of the fruit juices are even more caloric than some types of chocolate. It is better to drink water with lemon, tea or coffee but without sugar.
