The 7 Common Weight Loss Mistakes Most Women Make

By Joe Success - 5:16 AM

Losing the extra body-fat is simple especially when we have the proper knowledge. Yet most women (men also) make various mistakes during their journey to cut the extra layer of fat. Today in this article I have decided to talk to you about the most 7 common mistakes that could be curbing your progress in the weight-loss trip. 

1. Cardio is Your Main Training Activity

Most people think that they have to do only cardio to cut weight, and this is incorrect, because when you spend time in the gym, the baseline amount of calories you burn each day will be increased, which will help you lose weight faster. 

2. Abusing Proteins

"Protein is important, but if you have too much, the excess gets stored as fat," says Felicia Stoler, RD. "And high-protein shakes and bars tend to be sugary and fatty." Women need about 46 grams a day, per the CDC.

3. Not Enough Food For Breakfast

"Most juice raises blood sugar, so your body produces more insulin. You'll get hungry and overeat later," says Louis Aronne, MD. Get in protein and fiber, such as eggs and whole-grain toast.

4. You Don't Eat Training

Not eating before starting your workout routine is a big mistake, because if you don’t do so, you will not have the amount of energy that will help your body move properly, in order to burn more calories. 

5. Not Having Enough Rest

A natural sleep/wake cycle is a must. The need of sleep is individualistic, some need 10 hours, others need 5 hours, whatever it is, take the amount of sleep you need for a better daily performance.

6. Always doing the same routine

"You can't perform the same exercises over and over and expect the same benefits," Stoler says. To get better results, follow the FIT principle: Vary the frequency, intensity or time.

7. Ignoring Weight

Women who are getting started on an exercise program often think they should stick with just cardio, Stoler notes—but you need strength training to keep your metabolism revved up.
