Woman Weight Loss Mistakes

4 Common Weight Loss Mistakes That Women Make

 

Many women start out strong when they wish to lose weight. However, with time they give up. Why? The answer is that they do not see results fast enough. In most cases, women sabotage themselves without even realizing it.

The 4 Common Eeight Loss Mistakes Are…

  • Not including resistance training as part of their training regimen
  • Not staying at a caloric deficit
  • Letting one small slip up affect them
  • Not defining their why

Not Including Resistance Training As Part Of Their Training Regimen

Resistance training is one of the best methods to lose weight. Most women balk at the idea of going to the gym and lifting weights. They automatically assume that the weights will make them big and manly and no woman wants that.

This is a fallacy. Most women will never become big or bulky. Men themselves have problems getting big and muscular. A woman who has much less testosterone will not see huge muscles popping up all over her body.

Weight training will boost your metabolism. Your muscles will be lean and toned. You will burn the fat and gain some lean muscle mass. So, overall, not only will you become smaller in size but you’ll also get stronger too. The extra muscle will burn more calories and make it easier for you to keep off the weight.

A full body workout which involves deadlifts, snatches, squats, etc. will create a situation in your body known as excess post oxygen consumption. That just means you will be burning calories and fat for hours after you work out.

Weight Loss Tips For Women: Are You Sabotaging Yourself?

 

Out of all the mistakes that women make when trying to lose weight, here are some of the most common ones. Just avoiding these mistakes will put you in good state. There is so much bad advice regarding weight loss that it is normal to feel discombobulated after doing an hour of research online.

Information overload and most of it is contradictory. Just bear in mind that if you follow the tips listed below and our list of the best weight loss tips for women, you absolutely will lose weight. Make no mistake about it. Are you ready? Good. Read on.

1. You MUST know your calorie maintenance number and aim to be at a deficit of about 300-500 calories a day. Most women never find out what their number is. You can find out your number at http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm

2. Never ever try and cut too many calories too soon. You will not speed up your fat loss. Instead, you will slow it down because your body goes into starvation mode and holds on to its fat stores desperately.

3. Never underestimate the damage a single cookie can do. Actually, it doesn’t have to be a cookie. That is just a symbol that applies to any food you crave but know that you’re not supposed to eat.

An hour long moderate workout may burn about 300 to 400 calories. One slice of pizza and a coke may contain more calories than what you struggled to burn for an hour. So, just giving in to temptation may mean that your effort was just cancelled out.

Keep In Mind Your Own Enthusiasm For Health

 

We have the human need to receive validation from our support system in order to feel secure about what we are doing and how we are doing it. Additionally, we keep our friends posted on our progress, challenges, relapses, and so on to give ourselves a better chance at success when we try to lose 10 pounds in a month. We make ourselves accountable by keeping others in the loop. The mind is a tricky and confusing place, and we do what we can to stay on track whenever our commitment wavers between the inevitable cycles of effort and retreat into that which makes us comfortable.

However it is a good idea to be selective about who you choose to include in your own personal journey. Unsolicited advice, destructive criticism, and indifferent or careless remarks can influence us in ways that cause us to doubt our commitments, abilities, and competencies and that can undermine our personal power. Therefore it is essential that we learn and establish an effective means of keeping the influence of our companions in their proper places in order to keep our thoughts our own.

In the workplace, for example, groups of dieters sometimes come together in order to inspire and motivate one another. This environment can be toxic, though, in that they exclude those who wish to keep their eating habits a personal matter. Worse yet, those in the group who cheat on their diet or who relapse altogether can experience extreme guilt and shame for failing to live up to the expectations of the others.

Restaurant staff has a job to try to sell as much food as possible.

Dieting Depression

How To Overcome Dieting Depression

 

Every female, who has tried to follow a dieting plan, instead of a specifically designed weight loss plan for women, has faced those times when the only exciting thing about life was the number of pounds of weight, one had lost. You have to give up a lot when following a diet. Most times you cannot eat your favorite foods and you also eat a lot less. Also, your body takes some time to attune itself to the new diet as it tries to lose dependence on the sugar powered energy ups and downs through the day.

There are times when the weight does not go down, no matter how hard you try. In such cases, you may feel anxious and wonder, whether you’ll be able to achieve your weight loss goals. Health experts are of the opinion that if you do not have your mind in the right place, your dieting plans are unlikely to succeed. It does not matter that you follow the best weight loss plan for women and have your diet chart designed by a celebrity nutritionist.

You are going to have negative feelings during dieting. You must accept it and prepare for it. However, help is at hand, as there are a few things that can save you from going into mental lapse and prevent giving in to your negative feelings. But you have got to do it on your own.

Momentum Is Important

Most of the people, both men and women, start dieting as a ritual each year. Most of the times, they do not have a monthly or daily commitment but they have to give it a try to feel that they have not given up.

Workout Routines For Women At Home – Venus Factor Workouts

 

“Abs are made in the kitchen” that’s what they’re all saying now, and while it’s true diet is the major factor in weight loss, exercise helps a lot in this journey. And besides, who wants to lose all that fat only to find out they have a flat bum and no womanly curves underneath? Not me. Unfortunately I can barely afford a gym membership, but I really can’t afford the extra travel time there and back again, so the best option to save time, and willpower (especially on weekends), is to use workout routines for women at home. And the Venus Factor has a whole program that strengthens muscle for improved fitness and muscle tone.

Just 30 Minutes A Workout

This was the biggest drawcard for me, just 30 minutes to complete a workout. The thought of working out for an hour just exhausts my willpower so I can’t even be bothered starting but 30 minutes can be done as soon as I get home from work before I need to cook dinner, or on a weekend afternoon after spending a day out or before heading out for the night. So 30 minutes is easy to find but, bonus, you only need to work out three days a week. This is getting better and better for me. It’s not that I hate exercising, I actually enjoy it once I get going but I think the idea of having to do something every day for a long time feels more like work than ‘me time’.

Woman Starving During Weight Loss

Starving Is Not The Way To Lose Weight

 

You may have already tried the same process before where you would hardly consume any calories and workout all the time. Once you would actually achieve your weight loss goal, you would feel so drained that you could not even appreciate the weight loss. If you have a boyfriend or husband who decided they would diet with you, they may have started losing weight at a faster pace, causing you to feel desperate to compete. At that point, you may have even gone down to consuming 500 calories per day or less while exercising for hours on end.

When you are not consuming many calories and are constantly pushing yourself to continue working out, your body starts to become weak. The hair on your head may suddenly start thinning and falling right out. It would be hard for you to get through the day or participate in your normal activities because you would feel exhausted all the time.

If you want to take a different approach where you would not have to starve or workout excessively, The Venus Factor is worth trying. Instead of the typical programs, it is a system that specifically helps women use a hormone called “leptin” in their body to lose weight during a three-month process. Throughout those three months, you would still be able to consume foods you enjoy without feeling restricted.

You will have a chance to learn about certain foods and how they can cause your body to store fat instead of burning it off. While you may think you already know which foods cause the most body fat,

Woman Losing Weight

You Don’t Have To Be The Biggest Loser

 

The chances are good that if you have not watched the television show, The Biggest Loser, that you have at least heard about it and know what it is all about. Most people who are familiar with the show are either currently working on their own weight issues or they have had to go through dieting on some level. Some even watch the show to give them added motivation to break through the weight loss and gain cycle and finally see the pounds shedding.

There is a lot of motivation to be had when you are able to see the numbers counting down each week for the weight that people are losing. Through watching the show as well as any other type of weight loss program, you are also going to find that men seem to lose a lot more weight a lot faster than women do.

What you need to know about shows like The Biggest Loser is that the secret to weight loss on a healthy level is not Jillian Michaels or any of the coaches yelling at you to try to motivate you. Instead, you need to learn about a hormone within the body along with will power and good choices that will keep you losing the weight steadily. When you pair that with a proper exercise plan, you are going to see a great difference in the weight that you are able to lose.

It would be lovely if there was some sort of a switch that you could use that will help you to kick the hormones into gear and make them work for you.

We are what we eat! I’m sure you also have heard this well known slogan before. This is especially true when it comes to how our bodies react to what we eat. Don’t except your body to always be happy if you only put in “crap” food. It doesn’t matter how much exercise, fitness or weight training you do.

How often have you gone through a cycle of launching a weight loss for women diet along with a male figure in your life? This could be your spouse, best friend, coworker or even a sibling. What will usually happen is the male will end up losing their fat rather rapidly and with very little effort on their part. All the while, you are left feeling as though you are fighting to lose even a couple of pounds each week. In addition to that, you will more than likely hit a few plateaus along the way that will lead to a lot of frustration and even the feeling like you want to give up.

What you need to know is that it is a simple truth that a lot of women will have trouble losing weight simply because they are trying to attack dieting the same way that men do instead of following one of the healthy weight loss for women diets. Weight loss is certainly something that is different for everyone, especially males and females. The last thing that you will want is for desperation to set in as you could end up falling off of your goals and neglecting to lose the weight that you so badly want to get rid of.

Fad diets such as consuming nothing but cabbage soup, packing on meats and cutting out carbs, wiping out everything but one food group or even starving yourself is going to do nothing for you.
