Not Eating the Right Amount Of Calories.

You may be too concerned about the amount of calories you are eating. Use mindful eating instead. I highly recommend to practice and yoga and mediation to help with your self-awareness.

They are great tools to raise your mindfulness. You will learn to feel when you are truly hungry and when you are not anymore. Being more aware and mindful of your appetite, you will eat accordingly.

To lose weight, you have to eat less calories than you consume during the day. But counting calories is not always the best solution. Focus on the nutritional value of food. Prefer a whole food plant based diet.

Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds is highly recommended. It will fill you up quickly, keep you full longer and provide lots of vitamins and nutrients to your body.

 

Eating Enough Heathy Food To Lose Weight.

If you are not eating enough, you are slowing down your metabolism. This prevents your body to burn excess body fat and lose weight. Do not starve yourself. Do not avoid food.

Not eating enough has an adverse effect. Your body stores fat when it lacks nutrition. Being hungry does not mean being on track to lose weight. Eat enough healthy food instead.

Make sure you are actually eating healthy and not unhealthy healthy food. Avoid processed foods as much as possible. If you need a snack, prefer fruits, nuts and seeds.

Package foods often do more arm than good. There are healthy foods that are unhealthy. Pay attention to what you eat. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables will help you.

Your body stores fat when under stress. Extra sleep helps your body function properly with high performance. You will have more energy to workout when feeling stress-free and well-rested.

Avoid stress, fatigue and negative emotions. Yoga and meditation before sleep help to calm down, relax and have better deep sleep. Your mental state is important as it affects your body.



You Are Practicing the Wrong Workout.

Eating well, sleeping enough and exercising smartly are equally important to lose weight, to be healthier, and happier. Picking an exercise program that suits you best is crucial.

I highly recommend yoga to everybody, regardless or your age or fitness level. There are many different forms of yoga. Some are vigorous and intense. Others are gentle and beginner friendly.

Try out as many different yoga types as you can. You will find what appeals to you more. Live new experiences, visit new places. Step out of your comfort zone and see amazing changes in your body, mind and spirit.
