Why Most Women Are Unsuccessful In Losing Weight
Ladies, have you ever tried various diets, eating less or even skipping meals to lose weight? Have you had some success at first and then your weight loss suddenly screeched to a deafening stop and worse, those pounds or kilos you have lost started to come back with a vengeance? Sounds familiar?
Here are some of the reasons why.
Common Weight Loss Mistakes Girls Make
Weight Loss Diets – You’ve done that and diets don’t work? Most diets require you do have a drastic cut in your caloric intake and are very difficult to follow because of hunger pangs which require strict discipline.
Besides, if you have a pear shaped body, you will only become a smaller pear because you need to do some exercises to tone up your body to get those sexy curves like the above picture.
When you are on a caloric restriction diet, you will lose some muscles. Losing muscles not only make you less shapely, it will also crash your metabolism (natural calorie burning). Therefore when you are off the diet, because of your lowered metabolism, the fat you lost will come surging back and worse, because of your muscle loss, you may even put on more fat than you had originally.
Not Training With Weights – Most women I know are petrified about weight training. This irrational fear is understandable because most of you are afraid that you will put on muscles and end up like female bodybuilders. Let me assure you that it is almost impossible for girls to put on so much muscle mass without special intensive training, professional coaching, nutritional supplements and drugs, yes, drugs like steroids!
This is because girls just simply do not have enough testosterone (male hormones) needed for muscle growth. In fact, men have 30 or more times the level of testosterone and with such high levels, they still have to put in a lot of hard work and to lift very heavy to get big muscles, what makes you think that girls can put on large muscles with simple weight lifting exercises?
Yes, you will put on some muscles when you train with weights, but these are muscles that give you a well toned healthy and sexy look when you are in your bikini. Ladies, you are encouraged to work out with weights because by doing so, not only you can get a well toned and stronger body, you will also improve on your bone density to prevent bone diseases like osteoporosis and some forms of arthritis. Furthermore, weight training also helps you to burn more calories as well as raising your metabolism so that you can become a natural calorie burner!
Wrong Cardio Exercises – Are you guilty of reading a book while walking on a treadmill or on a stationary bike. Yes, any form of exercise is better than no exercise. But do remember, your objective is to lose weight and you must burn sufficient calories in order to achieve your desire result and thus casual exercise will not do much in helping you to lose and drop those pounds or kilos.
You see, just to burn off just a can of soda, you have to run intensively for at least 20 minutes. Yes, 20 minutes of solid puffs and grunts! What makes you think you can walk and get rid of that few slices of pizza calories?
There are many more weight loss mistakes that girls tend to make such as skipping meals or worse, skipping breakfast or taking only fruits for lunch. However, I won’t bore you with more dry facts and let international female weight loss expert tell you how to Own A Slim And Sexy Female Body!
