Weight loss can be one of those extremely frustrating things. There is no diet that works for everyone and no magic cure which will help you lose weight and keep it off in an instant. Weight loss takes time and effort as the most successful ways of losing weight are about lifestyle changes and choices.

There are crash diets out there which will make you lose a lot of weight in a short space of time but they are not sustainable and so once you stop them and start eating properly it can be difficult to maintain the weight loss. Turning to them in times of frustration will not help. Take a look at your diet and consider these things:

  • How many meals a day do I eat? Not eating breakfast has been shown to cause weight gain and skipping any meal can make your body think it needs to go into starvation mode and hold onto everything you put in it.
  • How much do I eat? Snacking all day long will pile on the pounds but equally not enough can cause you to not lose weight as your body goes into starvation mode.
  • What type of foods do I eat? If you eat mainly sugary foods, crisps and takeaways with very little fresh fruit or vegetables then it will be harder to lose weight. Make small changes such as eating 1 piece of fruit a day to begin with.
  • What type of drinks do I mainly consume? If you drink a lot of diet fizzy drinks, research suggests this can make you gain weight because your body craves the sugar it doesn’t get from the drink. Full fat fizzy drinks contain a lot of Calories and no nutritional value. Stick to water as much as you can.
  • How much exercise do I do? Being inactive is a massive factor in weight gain. Get moving by doing little things like taking the stairs instead of the lift or getting off the bus a stop early and walking home.
