“I look fat. I hate my body.”
“She can eat anything she wants. I hate her.”
“I exercise like a dog, but why am I still fat?”
“I would be happy if I could just get skinny.”
“If you're fat then what am I?”
Hmmm. Sound familiar?
Nearly every woman has some form of dissatisfaction with her body and weight is the overwhelming concern for many.
I am not painfully skinny, nor am I extremely fat, but frankly, my body composition is flabby rather than toned. I wish I could have toned arms and thighs! Before you judge me and tell me I've a negative self-image, here is a picture of me in a bikini!
Well, if I've a negative self-image, I'd avoid going out to the beach where swimsuits are usually worn and I'd act in a way to reinforce this image by going on a strict diet or exercising like a mad woman. People who have extremely good-looking bodies are people who eat right and consistently exercise! I don't workout at all, I can't resist stimulating and fattening foods, and therefore I accept my flaws even though there have been times when I wish I was a little skinner.
So what are the reasons I don't put on weight easily (it's actually a miracle I weight 48-49 kg) and you may be packing on the pounds (and might continue to be)!
There are many possible answers to these questions, but few certainties.
#1 Insufficient sleep
Sleep deprivation interferes with the hormones leptin and ghrelin that regulate appetite. That means you'll feel hungrier and are more likely to indulge in poorer eating behaviors, which could damage your waistline. Studies have shown that people who get more than seven hours of sleep a night are less likely to put on weight than those who do not, so make sure that you're getting your recommended amount of shuteye.
#2 Excessive stress
Stress takes an enormous toll on your health and research shows it can increase belly fat and slow down weight loss. When you're stressed out, your body produces cortisol, which is the fight-or-flight hormone that increases fat storage. Take a step back, evaluate your stress level, and adjust your lifestyle accordingly.
#3 You are too lazy
What activities do you enjoy? It doesn't have to be something particularly energetic, just something you enjoy, its better than being parked in front of the TV, or your computer all evening, right? Oh and window-shopping in the mall is not only enjoyable, but will burn calories too!
#4 All talk no action
You see, a lot of people say they want to lose weigh, but very few people truly want it BAD! Most people, say, “I should” this, “I should” that, but never make it a MUST! They never make it a priority. Thus, it was just words... no action. Without action, there will be no results.
#5 You starve yourself
Many of the ‘why am I fat’ people go on waves of guilt. If you miss meals, food tends to get stored up, therefore metabolism slows down, which is the total opposite of what you want to happen. Crash or fad diets are not only stupid and dangerous! Why go to bed hungry when there is a delicious way to “tickle your system” into burning fat while you sleep the night away?
Despite all of these, for some reasons, you're just not losing the weight you were hoping for, so what gives?
There's hope! Begin to move forward with proper expectations, proper motivations, and proper methods – Bodytrim shows you how to lose weight fast and permanently, while enjoying all the foods you have always loved.
With Bodytrim, you will eat more and weigh less, making this the perfect diet plan for people who love to eat!
How does Bodytrim differ from other weight loss programs?
Bodytrim is an education system that was designed to teach people about the 3 W's of weight loss tips, to work around your life and focuses on food rather than exercise enabling you to achieve your goals, quickly, effectively and for the long term.
Though it sounded too good to be true, I found that it's not at all. The Bodytrim system has already helped over 300,000 people transform their bodies and lives. They've personally received thousands of testimonials from everyday people who have lost over 30, 40, 50 and even 70kg in only a few months. In fact, scientific studies reveal that the Bodytrim system on average has helped people lose over 6kg in the first 7 days alone!
Last, but not least BE PATIENT and of course, NEVER GIVE UP! The road to rip takes EFFORT and DEDICATION, good luck!
