Weight loss has never been smooth sailing. Despite the strict diet restrictions and rigorous exercises you have been religiously following, you just cannot seem to lose the extra pounds. In fact, your appearance cannot hide these apparent gains in your body.
Why is it not as easy to lose weight?
Here are some possible reasons that could affect your weight loss process:
1) Certain exercises or diets may not be suited for you
While there are many guides that may suggest helpful tips to get your body in check, the reality is that it is not a one-stop solution catered for everyone. More rather than just trying out every means to get fit, here are some rules of thumb to follow in terms of dieting and exercise.
According to Singapore’s Health Promotion Board, the key factor in losing weight would be the number of calories you burn should be higher than your calorie intake. Thus, this highlights the importance of mindful nutrition practices and regular exercise. The following would be recommended steps to take on your lifestyle:
For dieting: To create a well-balanced meal, it is recommended to fill your plate with one-quarter of whole grains, one-quarter of proteins, and the remaining half with two servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
For exercise: A good 150 to 250 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise a week would help you maintain a healthy weight. Ideally, you will need to clock in above this range to lose weight. Try other activities like jogging or cycling for a start.
2) Our metabolism slows down as we age
To simply put it, metabolism is the amount of energy (calories) your body uses to maintain itself. Depending on several factors such as genes, everyone’s metabolism levels vary.
However, after the age of 20, inevitably the rate at which our bodies break down the food will decrease by 10 percent as each decade passes. This is due to causes such as loss of muscle mass which will result in calories burning at a lower rate.
