Why am I exercising and eating well and not losing weight?
One of the main reasons why burning calories through exercise may still not result in weight loss is due to overexertion, or inflammation of your body. If you exercise too hard on a daily basis, there is an excess of inflammation in your body. All the added up inflammation makes you gain more weight than lose.
Why am I gaining weight even though I’m eating healthy and working out?
Glycogen or sugar that your muscle cells convert to glucose is the energy source for your muscles. When you exercise regularly, your body stores more glycogen to fuel that exercise. Stored in water, glycogen has to bind with water as part of the process to fuel the muscle. That water adds a small amount of weight, too.
Can you lose weight by eating healthy and working out?
It is possible to lose weight simply by eating a leaner and more nutritious diet, but it is much easier to do so with a combination of a healthy diet, regular exercise, staying hydrated and getting enough sleep.
How much should you exercise a week to lose weight?
Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you spread out this exercise during the course of a week. Greater amounts of exercise will provide even greater health benefit.
Why can’t I lose weight even with calorie deficit?
This is called a weight loss plateau. The initial weight loss is usually just water weight and not fat loss. The plateau is caused by loss of muscle that occurs during weight loss (if you are not working out). To counter this, you can either cut more calories or increase your physical activity.
Can’t lose weight no matter how hard I try?
The causes range from thyroid malfunction to hormone imbalance, sleep deprivation to food intolerances or digestive imbalance, and more. Because there are many potential sources of the problem, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment that works for all weight loss resistant individuals.
