3 More Reasons You Are Not Losing Weight

Here are some more reason why, despite all your efforts, you are not losing weight.

  1. You might not be taking enough slimming minerals. Minerals and Vitamins are really important, not just for general health, but also for losing weight. Potassium helps your body to maintain the ionic balance which leads to healthy muscles. When you are losing weight, you want to lose fat mass, not muscle mass. You want your body to use your  fats for energy, not your muscles. Potassium helps nutrients reach your muscles and hence feed them. Potassium rich foods also tend to be low in calories and are really filling. Potassium also helps your body get rid of water weight and toxins, which helps to lose those last extra pounds.
  2. Get more sleep. With so much work around us these days, most of us tend to sleep a lot less than generations that came before us. It has been proved time and time again that lack of sleep leads to a gain in weight. It is because when we force ourselves to stay awake, we are more likely to eat more in order to stay awake. Also staying awake most of the time by force, encourages the body to slow down the metabolism and increases appetite, it also forces the body to burn less fat to survive.
  3. Cool environment is bad news. There have been researches done and published just recently which have proved that the idea that our bodies burn more calories when its cold, is untrue. That means that you should try to stay warmer as that forces the body to burn more calories. Great news for people living in Asia and people living in countries close to the equator.
