7 REASONS Why You Are NOT Losing Weight While Still Working Out #AMCoffee

7 Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight
Even When You Work Out


not losing weight

Working out and feeling frustrated that those extra pounds are still on the sides and not in the past?

Well, there are the reasons WHY it is happening. Your body is unique, and you gotta listen and learn from what it does and how it reacts to any changes you make in your life.

However, there are common reasons why you may be where you are today. When I change one of these variables, i.e., reasons in my lifestyle, changes in my body follow if these reasons persist.

This is good news – when you know something, try it out, test it out, and get your result.

    #1 Eating Wrong Foods

    Food is a HUGE part of your success to achieve your desirable weight, but most important to FEED your hunger before it strikes you.

    Here are some great guidelines that you could implement in your life.

    – Try to eat your starches like potatoes, rice, pasta on the days when you do your More rigorous training
    – Stick to Veggies + Lean Protein on slower days
    – Avoid eccess bread and sugar or anything that has a gazillion ingredients on the label! If you cannot pronounce it, it should be questioned!

    #2 Eating Too Much

    When you eat a rather clean nutritiously-dense diet, your body receives a lot of nutrients that Feed it and keep that hunger bits and cravings outrages far away.

    But when you load up on TOO many calories a day, i.e., overeating, then you may be stalled in your progress of losing weight.

    – Evaluate your calorie intake per day.
    Keep your journal for a week and see what calls for adjustment!
    – Have nice snacks that kill cravings and hunger –> Greek yogurts, good bars like Kind Bars (avoid all those protein-packed whey-packed bars, they are dumb calories for the body).
    – Deprive Yourself NOT of the snacks you love! If you crave it –> Have it! Just chew SLOWLY and enjoy every bite!

    To lose weight you need to run a calorie deficit in the body!

    Simple Way to do it is this —-> Eliminate just 1 (ONE) junk snack of about 100 Calories a day and keep this practice for 2 weeks. You will see the results!

    • Here is the thing. You can have that one indulgent day BUT the next few days do not overeat. Do not dwell on the fact you overate just start the next day. How you react to the over eating can be a positive or a defeat in leading a healthy lifestyle.

        good advice that’s what I tell my self to if you are craving it u should have some but a little if not you will eat to much

    • Katrina Angele says:

      I mainly have the opposite problem. I need to have set meals. I never eat breakfast.

    • Kelly Hubbard says:

      I love this advice but I have found I have substituted Kale Chips instead of Potato chips..

    #3 Too Much Cardio in Your Life?

    Cardio workout is a MUST for trainning your Heart muscle for endurance and strength. Sweating is GOOD and Healthy!

    However, when you do too much of cardio, like going on for regular 10-mile runs or staying on the machine for anover 90 minute daily –> would contribute to shorter recovery periods and eat your Heart Muscle.

    You do not want to see it happening. It is unhealthy and would contribute to lower metabolism rate as well.

    Long cardio sessions make body prone to sustain and endure, thus store FAT as energy. Our goal to add cardio to improve our fat burning!

    #4 Lifting Weights

    Strength training is very important –> grow muscle, grow your metabolism and more burning of calories.

    Weight training needs to go hand-in-hand with cardio.

    5 Days a week of both in proportionate amount would be an ideal way for the body to thrive and reward you with strength, health and shapely body.

  6. CoffeeTime says:


    #5 You Are Not Working Hard Enough at the Gym

    Your workouts should be intensity-dependent, not time dependent. Keep this fact in mind: the harder you work, the shorter your workout time may need to be.

    Why it is important –> we are going for ‘afterburn’ effect which keeps your metabolism going and revved for the next 24-48 hours after the workout!

  7. CoffeeTime says:


    #6 Taking Time To Recover – No?

    Both weight lifting and cardio bring stress to the body’s systems and muscles. Giving enough time to recover would heal your body, grow new muscle fibers and allow you to burn more calories, too!

    Keep pushing yourself at the gym, yet take time to recover!

  8. CoffeeTime says:


    #7 You Are Under Stress All The Time

    During our physical activity, the body produces Cortisol, a stress hormone. If you do exercise excessiveley, you are exposed to an overload of this hormone –> not good! Its excess is a good foundation for fat production.

    Imagine, you are living a very stressful live outside the gym. That means you are “floating” in stress hormones all the time, without any rest! Even if you exercise, you will not experience a desired weight loss, as stress hormones prevent fat from burning, rather, they encourage its accumulation.

    What do we do? De-STRESS! Do your daily walks, 5-minute breaks, meditate, feel peace inside.

    Total body wellness and peace would take you to the weight loss results you always wanted to be at!

    Happiness = Healthy Weight

    • Comment here: In some people exercise helps as a stress reducer. Your comments above kind of implies not to work out when stress.

      • karen hinkle says:

        I have been under a lot of stress I guess that’s what the problem is but I don’t know how to get rid of it

    • Katrina Angele says:

      I am still working on learning how to manage my stress. This year has been the worst yet.
