In 2014 I published an article on “Reasons You Can’t Lose Weight“.
Today I’d like to expand on that partial list (didn’t mean to wait 3 years to do that!)
So besides the reasons listed in the above link, here are a few more to add to the list:
- Poor sleep quality and sleep deprivation cause an increase in ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite, as well as cause a decrease in leptin, a hormone that tells you to stop eating.
- Not staying hydrated.
- Not eating enough calories.
- Stress-yes, stress. Its effects are evil in every way.
- Gut health
- Excessive fruit intake because the sugar in fruit, fructose, more easily stores as fat than other types of carbs.
