- Not staying at a caloric deficit

- 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.
