    7 reasons that prevent loss weight

    A few tips that helps you to understand what are the reasons who prevent you loss weight:

    Why you cannot lose weight?

    Why you cannot lose weight?

    You quit smoking recently

    If you have recently quit smoking, then the chance of losing weight is zero. According to studies, one of three women who quit smoking get fat by 3-4 kg, and 10% of them over 10 kg. Nutritionists say that nicotine in cigarettes stimulates burning calories in the body. When you stop smoking, this burning is reduced by 200-300 kcal per day. So if you keep a diet, you quit smoking and yet don’t lose weight is to blame nicotine. The solution is to make moving day and wait several months for your body to break free from nicotine addiction.

    Excessive eating of salad

    Even if you its sound paradoxical, lettuce consumed in excessive amounts, can cause weight gain. Why? Because lettuce leaves themselves when they taste bland and are tempted to add more oil and salt, foods that have more calories and stimulates water retention. In addition, the absence of meat protein is not good for the figure cies because of fatigue and lead to a massive loss of muscle tissue.

    You drink plenty of light drinks

    If you always choose light drinks, believing that they are allied with your figure, you’re wrong. Of course they are preferable to the ordinary, but the best would be to not include them all in your menu. This is because more than 500 ml per day drink light stimulates the pancreas to secrete more insulin. This hormone slows down fat burning and increase appetite in the following hours. So if you want to lose weight, choose still or sparkling water with a slice of lemon.

    Your meals are hypo caloric

    If at breakfast or lunch you ate who knows what… is normal for the rest of the day to consume all kinds of snacks to get full. Biscuits, chocolate, cereal bars, each of these foods contain more calories, fat and carbohydrates than a regular lunch. The solution? Eat your full breakfast and lunch and choose a fruit or yogurt for snacks.

    You take hypotensive pills

    Beta blockers drugs for people with high blood pressure or other heart problems reduces the power consumption of the body, slowing down the weight loss process. If you follow such treatment, but your doctor may recommend foods that stimulate the burning of the body.

    You have entered menopause

    No, it is not a myth that menopause is always accompanied by weight problems. The two years preceding menopause and the two years following this process causes hormonal chaos. This causes a significant increase in appetite and water retention, which makes impossible any diet. Nutritionists advice? Although it seems to be very hard, closely monitor your diet menu and hold a full installation only after menopause, when hormonal balance processes.

    You have thyroid problems

    When functions are slow thyroid (hypothyroidism mention here), the body burns less calories, resulting in weight gain. Any diet you try, it will not work because the burning of the body is slowed. Only your endocrinologist may recommend treatment to help you. What are the signs of a thyroid problem? A constant feeling of cold, bowel problems, impaired concentration and memory.

    So if you keep tried a diet and didn’t work. See what’s going on with you. Gloria Agostina will also help you a little bit. We will place in the future delicious recipe of salads, to help you make your diet more delicious!
