You Don’t Have Realistic Expectations

You Don’t Have Realistic Expectations

At the end of the day, weight loss takes time.

It is a marathon — not a sprint.

Losing 1–2 pounds per week is a realistic goal.

Some people will lose weight faster than that, while others will lose weight more slowly.

But it’s also important to keep in mind that not everyone can look like a fitness model.

At some point, you will reach a healthy set point weight, which may be above what you initially hoped for.

SUMMARY
It is important to have realistic expectations. Weight loss takes a long time and not everyone can look like a fitness model.
15. You’ve Been “Cutting” for Too Long
I don’t think it’s a good idea to be in a calorie deficit for too long at a time.

The leanest people on earth (bodybuilders and fitness models) never do this. They do cycles of “bulking” and “cutting.”

If you eat at a calorie deficit for many months (or years), eventually your metabolic rate may slow down.

If you’ve been dieting for a long time, a two-month period where you aim to “maintain” and gain a bit of muscle may be what you need to get things started again.

Of course, this doesn’t mean eating bad foods, just more of the good stuff.

After these two months are over, you can start “dieting” again.
