7 reasons you’re not losing weight — and how to fix them

Why you’re not losing weight — even if you think you’re doing everything right.

Your body tells you when it’s hungry and when you’ve had enough to eat, but over time, you might have learned to override these signals. When you tune in to what your body tells you, you can respond more appropriately, say, by finding an activity when you’re bored (instead of rummaging through the cabinets for a snack) or by wrapping up a meal when you’re satiated, instead of when you’ve had too much to eat. Developing these listening skills takes practice, but over time, can help you reduce stress eating, minimize overeating and enjoy meals more.

6. Your portion sizes need a reality check.It’s possible to overeat very healthful foods, like avocados, nuts and quinoa, and this can influence your ability to lose weight. These foods can absolutely be part of a weight-loss eating plan, but your portion sizes may need some fine-tuning. For instance, a portion of pasta — even healthier

whole grain, lentil and chickpea versions — is 1/2 cup (about the size of a teacup). A serving of nuts is an ounce, or the amount that would fill a mint tin. For nut or seed butter, the serving size is two tablespoons, or the size of a golf ball. An easy hack to help you fill up on proper portions is to reverse your ratio of grains to veggies on your plate, having twice the amount of veggies as grains or pasta. This trick helps downsize grain and pasta portions while keeping your plate full of food. headtopics.com

7. You’re eating too many processed foods.There’s a strong link between eating processed foods and your weight. One possible, science-backed explanation: You eat faster and don’t fill up as quickly on very processed foods, so you wind up eating more. Just think how much easier and faster it is to wolf down a fast food

than it is to consume a piece of salmon with a side of broccoli and brown rice. Or compare how quickly you can eat an oat-based granola bar to a bowl of oatmeal.In one year-longstudy Read more: »
