Are you ready? Let’s go!
- You are still eating way too much calories more than your body needs daily. The average female adult requires about 2000-2200kcal for daily body activities. If you eat more than that, it is converted to fat and stored away in the various parts of the body. For office workers who do more of brain work than physical work like lifting or carrying heavy stuff around, they even require less. Do you know how much you are eating daily? Track your meals using this free journal to start. You can also record your meals in a diary just to give you an idea of how much. If you can measure how much calories you consume, it’s easy to adjust for weight loss. Eating more than your daily calories = weight gain. Eating less than your daily calories = weight loss.
- Ignorance of food Calorie values. We have ascertained eating more or less than our daily Calorie need has a direct impact on our weight, but do you know the Calorie value of foods and drinks we consume daily? See our common food and drink Calorie E-book to help you calculate your daily intake of food and drinks. Someone once told me she eats once a day, so why is she not losing weight. Looking at what she ate in that one seating was enough to feed 2 healthy adults. So it’s not how many times you eat a day, but the Calorie content of the meal. I could eat 3ce a day and still eat less than 1800 calories total for the day. Checkout our 21day fat flush plan.

Low fiber intake. Numerous studies on fiber has proven beyond doubt its importance for a healthier life as well as weight loss. Many people still consume less fiber than the daily recommended amount. According to W. H. O, 21-30 grams per day for adult women and men 30-38g per day. Well in reality, we are eating less than 15g daily. To get the recommended dose, have up to 5 servings a day. Easy ways to increase fiber intake is to have a vegetable serving with each meal and eating fruits for snacks.
