Weight loss should be simple. You just have to burn off more calories than you take in each day and avoid the crucial weight loss mistakes.

But it seems when it comes to cutting calories and starting an exercise program, most people cannot find a successful combination that leads to long-term weight loss.

Everyone makes mistakes, even when dieting and trying to find an effective weight loss program. You can avoid these mistakes if you know what they are, so you can be one step closer to dropping those extra pounds. Here are some weight loss mistakes you need to avoid.

#1. Eating Too Much Protein

TIP: Any extra protein you take in gets stored as fat on the body, so you want to stick to the recommended daily allowance.

Protein is good for you, and it’s good for building and repairing muscle tissue, but some women eat too much. They think protein is so good for you that more has got to be better.

Nope!

Any extra protein you take in gets stored as fat on the body, so you want to stick to the recommended daily allowance. You only need about 46 grammes of protein each day.

#2. Not Eating Enough Vegetables

While too much protein is not good, the same is not true of vegetables. They are nutritious, low calorie, and contain fibre and water to keep your bowels moving regularly.

You know veggies are healthy for you. You know you should probably eat more. You need at least 2 ½ cups of vegetables a day, but more will not hurt.

#3. Expecting The Pounds To Keep Dropping

In the first couple of weeks of your diet, you may drop a lot of pounds, and this is normal. But don’t expect it to continue. It’s normal for the amount you lose each week to be lower than it was in the beginning.

Don’t let this discourage you from continuing with your diet and exercise program. On average, you shouldn’t lose over 2 pounds a week.

#4. Treating Yourself For Working Out

Working out does not give you a license to cheat on your diet. And exercise cannot help take off the weight from binging. You can’t eat something you shouldn’t just because you burned off some extra calories exercising or eat something you shouldn’t and think you’ll work it off later.

Avoid this weight loss mistake! You have to keep your calories in and calories out consistent to lose weight and keep it off.

#5. Doing The Same Old Workout Routine

5 Ways Butt Exercises Can Increase Fitness And Look

FACT: Women often make the mistake of skipping weight training and just doing cardio. You won’t bulk up lifting weights, but you will increase muscle mass and burn more calories.

If you do the same workout all the time with the same intensity or the same amount of resistance, you’ll get limited results.

You can do two things to mix it up. You can up your resistance or dumbbell weight as you get stronger to see more results. You can also mix it up and do a more intense workout a few days a week.

Women often make the mistake of skipping weight training and just doing cardio. You won’t bulk up lifting weights, but you will increase muscle mass and burn more calories. Don’t forget the weight training if you really want to see changes in your body.

Tip To Remember

Avoiding these common weight loss mistakes can keep you on track and help you lose weight for the long-term. Remember, weight loss should be simple. You just have to burn off more calories than you take in each day.

Yes, weight loss mistakes are pretty much unavoidable! And yes, losing weight requires commitment and giving up some unhealthy habits that have caused weight gain, but it should reward, energising, and enjoyable!
