Why Exercising and Eating Well May Not Be Enough for Weight Loss
Weight loss journeys can be complicated, emotional, and sometimes frustrating. If you feel like you’re doing everything right but not losing weight, it may be time to consider other factors affecting the undesired outcome. Don’t shoot daggers at the scale just yet! Impact Medical Group of Tampa shares why exercising and eating well may not be enough for weight loss.
It’s important to remember that everyone is different when it comes to weight loss. What works for one individual may not work for another. However, there are a few practices that everyone may benefit from.
Drinking enough water is critical at any time but especially when on a weight loss journey. Recently, the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics cited several links between weight loss and water consumption. Staying hydrated can also look like adding IV vitamin fusions into your routine to achieve maximum results. Sedentary lifestyles are another area that does not bode well when you want weight loss results. For this, we recommend frequent breaks to stretch, exercise or simply move your body throughout the day.
Unbalanced hormones can also disrupt weight loss. In addition to managing the body’s fight-or-flight (stress) response, hormones also play a critical role in regulating hunger and mood. Because hormones are produced in small amounts within our cells, even low-dose replacement can have dramatic results. Generally, men tend to lose weight faster than women but total weight loss over time should not be that different.
