10 reasons why you can’t lose weight
It’s an ancient question: why am I not losing weight despite all my efforts? Here is a list of possible reasons!
1. You might be eating more than you think
Sometimes we don’t even realise how much we eat. Even if you eat healthily, if you consume more calories than you can spend, it will be very difficult to lose weight.
If keeping track of how much you eat is a problem for you, try one of the many calorie-tracking mobile apps available on the market!
2. You’re not eating enough protein
Protein is very important when you’re trying to lose weight since it helps you regulate appetite.
If your appetite is something you struggle with, we recommend our Shake’n’Shake. It can help you incorporate more protein into your diet and makes for a perfect good-for-you snack or light meal.
3. You’re not active enough
Muscle-training builds muscle mass and burns fat at the same time.

4. You’re not getting enough sleep
Studies show that poor sleep quality is one of the main risk factors for obesity.* Adults who have trouble sleeping are 55% more likely to struggle with weight gain.
5. You might be dehydrated
Studies have shown that staying hydrated increase the number of calories burned by 24-30% over a 1.5 hour period. It also helps reduce appetite.*
AquaSlim will help keep you hydrated while also fighting bloating and water weight.
6. You might be stressed
Cortisol - the stress hormone - directly affects fat storage. A study by the University of London has shown that people with high cortisol levels tend to have a higher BMI.

7. You might be having too many sugary drinks
Eliminating sugary carbonated drinks from your diet can help you drastically reduce your calorie intake. The problem with sugary drinks is that they stimulate dopamine levels, forming a vicious circle. Research has shown that sugar has a higher dependency coefficient than certain class A substances.*
8. Your metabolism might be slow
If your metabolism is in tip-top shape, you can burn more calories and lose weight more easily. A faster metabolism also means more energy.

9. You reached a weight-loss plateau
If you’ve hit a plateau, it’s time to change something. All the suggestions above might be helpful: reduce stress levels, amp-up your training sessions, eat more protein, try to boost your metabolism, give up sugary drinks and try getting a couple more hours of sleep at night.
Whatever you do: don’t give up!
10. Maybe all you need is patience
Everyone’s weight-loss journey is different. For some, it might be faster, for others slower. By adopting the right approach for you, eating a balanced diet, being physically active every day and finding the right products to boost your efforts, you can make the process much easier for yourself!
