The guaranteed way to lose that last 10 pounds
Whether you started losing weight 5 years ago, you’re an average person with a little higher fat percentage than your determined goal or you’re skinny fat, those 10 pounds that separate you from your dream body are just so damn stubborn! you may spend weeks and even months at the same weight with no improvement what so ever! Why is it happening?
Your body is smart and giving you a sign to stop the calorie defect process and start nourishing your body with the right type of food and vitamins.
Get a full blood picture checkup
The reason why i recommend a full blood picture is to know what vitamins your body is missing and start including them as food in your diet (or pills) to make a balance. If you make this step you’ll never suffer from a pale skin, general exhaustion or a hair loss like every other man or woman on a diet. you’ll also know if you have Hypothyroidism which prevents you to lose weight.
Quit the bathroom scale observing
take the scale out of the bathroom and start measuring your body in inches/centimeters. Take the measurements early in the morning before breakfast and after using the bathroom every week, NOT every day. This will help you know which part of your body is getting skinnier and which isn’t…
It will also give a good estimation of body muscle gains if you’re rocking resistance training.
Get an InBody scan instead
InBody scan will provide you a detailed view of body composition balance. Body water, proteins, minerals, and body fat, which are the components of the human body closely relate to the status of your health. In which you can further know what are the extra few pounds are water, fat, a compound of water+fat or a good muscle gain which you wouldn’t want to lose at all.
Be aware of your mental state
Depression and anxiety are obstacles in every way of life and not to be taken lightly. If someone has a disturbing problem for a long time, they’ll likely binge eat *emotional Compulsive overeating* to release stress.
As Melanie Greenberg Ph.D. wrote:
When your brain detects the presence of a threat, it triggers the release of a cascade of chemicals, including adrenaline, CRH, and cortisol. Your brain and body prepare to handle the threat by making you feel alert. Adrenaline helps you feel less hungry as your blood flows away from the internal organs and to your large muscles to prepare for “fight or flight.” However, once the effects of adrenaline wear off, cortisol, known as the “stress hormone” hangs around and starts signaling the body to replenish your food supply.
Therefore it’s hard to lose weight in the wrong state of mind. But once you realize it you’ll fight the false emotional appetite and stay focused on the goal.
Don’t repeat the routine over and over again!
This is the most common mistake people make at the end of the losing weight path. They lose hope of trying and trying.. While “no cheat meal” shows great consistency, they forget that our bodies and minds are smart and adjust to the routine. you got to trick your body through different food and workout at this period to see different results. change everything you can change and measure the outcome. If you do a pro split try upper-lower workout routine for a month. Maintain your calorie defect but change the macros. Try the carb cycle diet. You’ll be surprised.
It can be very frustrating not to lose the last few pounds but you should also consider that your current weight is the weight your body functions the best. your hair and skin look the best. through the international weight standards if you do because every person is not the same. there’s only one of YOU.
